I have used several books and online courses to prepare my child for the CogAT and this one is hands down the best. The lessons included on how to answer the questions are very thoughtful and helpful. I would recommend this course to any parent looking to prepare their child for the CogAT.

Great experience! My son who is 10 y.o. and gifted in math, enjoyed practicing all tests (verbal, quantitative, and non verbal). He had fun going through the lessons and quizzes (especially the long quizzes at the end of each category) over one weekend prior to taking the real CogAT tests at his school the very next week. He was well prepared and very excited to take the real tests. He was the only one who actually finished the real CogAT nonverbal test (the hardest, in my opinion) in his testing group at school. I loved how the lessons were structured and easy to follow. I highly recommend this program. Being prepared makes a big difference even for highly gifted children as my son.

About the OLSAT

The OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test) is a standardized multiple choice test frequently used to assess students for gifted and talented programs. First published in 1979, it has gone through several revisions over the years and is currently in its eigth version. This is why you may hear it referred to as the OLSAT-8. 


The OLSAT’s unique format and question types can make it a difficult and stressful experience, especially for very young children. Preparing for the test and familiarizing them with the specific question types can go a long way toward helping your child succeed on the test and get into the gifted program.
