OAT Flashcards are for students preparing to take the OAT Exam.
The Optometry Admission Test, or OAT, is the exam that anyone who wants to study for a career as an optometrist in America must take as part of the optometry school application process. The test is administered by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO).
According to ASCO, the exam does two things. It tests for general college level academic knowledge, and it also specifically tests for the ability to comprehend scientific information.
There are four main content areas covered by the OAT: natural sciences (biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry) reading comprehension, physics, and quantitative reasoning. The natural sciences section consists of 100 questions and must be completed in 90 minutes.
