Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Specific Content Analogies

Posted by Jordan Salley on May 25, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on words that require specific content knowledge. 

This video covers questions with specific content on the MAT. There are questions which will require additional background or contextual information the MAT. It is unlikely that students will have a grasp on all facts needed to complete these analogies, so it is essential to maintain good test taking skills to approach these questions. See below for our approach to questions with specific content.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Classification Analogies

Posted by Jordan Salley on May 18, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on classifying words based on groups. 

The MAT tests many types of analogies including classification analogies. These classification analogies are a form of analogy that compares terms based on what group the term belongs to. This video demonstrates a strategy to approach to identify the answer to these sometimes seemingly obscure terms.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Affix Analogies

Posted by Jordan Salley on May 11, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on affixes. 

The MAT tests on a number of analogies, including affix analogies. Affixes are part of a word that indicate a definition. At the beginning of a word, these are called prefixes. At the end of the word they are referred to as suffixes. As prior videos have described, it is important to have a working knowledge of affixes to succeed on the MAT. Below we provide a systematic strategy on approaching these affix questions.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Action Analogies

Posted by Jordan Salley on May 4, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on words that are action oriented. 

In preparing for the MAT, the action analogy requires specificity. While many students will encounter terms that are unfamiliar, there are ways to diligently break down the question and answer in order to increase the likelihood of reaching a correct answer.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) Review Series: Degree Analogies

Posted by Jordan Salley on April 27, 2020 9:00:00 AM CDT

In this continuation of our MAT review video series, we approach working through a standard MAT style analogy that focuses on words that are lesser or greater than their counterparts. 

This video provides an approach to degree analogies where terms are compared based on their relationship. These terms typically are related by a lesser or greater degree than the other term. These questions require a systematic approach and can be challenging. We recommend that you watch this video a couple of times in order to hone your approach to these question types.
