Using

Yes, click on the timer at the top right in the test to pause the test.
The objective and purpose of “Crack the OAT” is to help you simulate the OAT exam under realistic conditions. Because on exam day you will not have the option to pause and pick up where you left off, we do not provide this capability. To reap the benefits of rehearsing the OAT experience, we recommend that you allot the default time to take the test. At any time during the test, you can click on the “REVIEW” button and click on “END” if you want to submit your answers for your review and view your answers.
Yes, our HERO package provides video explanations for the questions. There are video explanations for every question in the Science, Reading, Math and Physics sections. After you take an exam, you will be able to view them. If you have the PRO package, you can either upgrade to HERO and get all video explanations and all add-ons, or you can get it ala cartè on the Add-ons page.
You can find the crash course videos on the “Take Test” or “Addons” page. You can also find the video explanations to the questions once you take a test. Once you take a test, you will also be provided with an array of data on your OAT testing performance such as your weaknesses, how much time you spent per question, how many times you marked the question, etc. The robust analysis will be pivotal in identifying areas where you can improve on. You’ll be able to view the video explanation for the question here. Together, this will help you strategize in bolstering and garnering the most points on your Dental Admission Test.
The grading rubric for the Natural Sciences, Reading Comprehension and Quantitative Reasoning and Physics sections are based on the scale that is provided on the American Dental Association page. Our software will enable you to compare how you performed on each test relative to other students across the world.
We do NOT collect any of your practice examination scores on “Crack the OAT”. Over the past decade, the students that have prepared for the Optometry Admission Test after incorporating “Crack the OAT” into their preparation regimen have achieved stellar scores. They often report back to us with great testimonials praising us for “Crack the OAT” after they have taken the Dental Admission Test. Historically, “Crack the OAT” has been one of the best predictors of your actual Optometry Admission Test. Generally, based on past records, you can predict to get within +/- 20 of your “Crack the OAT” Score. Our questions tend to fall more on the rigorous side and students have tended to score equivalent or one or two points higher on the actual exam, but this can vary depending on numerous factors. Because “Crack the OAT” provides the most enriching and realistic experience for the Optometry Admission Test mimicking and mirroring the exact testing platform which you will experience on test day, pre-optometry are very quick to suggest “Crack the OAT” as one of the best resources. If you have talked to a student who has taken the Optometry Admission Test, it is highly likely they have used “Crack the OAT”. We cannot predict what the Optometry Admission Test will present you on test day, so our team has devised a variety of questions to cover the spectrum of questions they may ask. As a result, you are well-prepared if they throw you a curve ball. By mastering how the testing interface works and simulating a test under actual testing conditions, you will become more efficient and confident in your skills. Through your progression with “Crack the OAT”, you will see an improvement in your performance. Our suite of “Crack the OAT” tools will deliver the results you are seeking. Our mantra at “Crack the OAT” is even if we can get 1 or 2 more questions correct on any given section, you’re a winner. The extra effort is often what separates you from dropping you down one score level or moving you up into the next score level helping you gain admission into optometry school.
Tip: If you use Chrome, get this cool extension which will enable you to speed up or slow down videos. This will save you studying time!

Software Users (2005-2018 Orders)

We have sent out an official notice to announce the End-of-Life (EOL) and sunsetting of the software program that was installed on your computer, its platform and membership. If you ordered the older software that gets installed on your computer between 2005-2018, the program will no longer work come December 31, 2019. Further, your warranty has expired as you receive 6 months of support/warranty from time of order. In order to continue service and receive assistance from our team, you will have to upgrade to the all-new 2020 Crack the OAT in order to renew your support and extended warranty plan and onboard to our latest platform to receive the latest features to help you ace your Optometry Admission Test. The 2005-2018 products and service will be discontinued and NOT supported come December 31, 2019 due to huge changes and shifts in technology, rise in costs, unfeasibility and unviability of sustaining old and outdated infrastructure, and a change in focus to deliver the best OAT course possible. •If you are experiencing issues with activating your key at the moment, then please install the very last version of the 2018 Crack the OAT here as a patch. This legacy platform’s access will end on December 31, 2019. PC Download Patching Invalid License MAC Download Patching Invalid License Note again that we will not be able to provide support outside of warranty as the product has reached its end of life. •If you placed an order between 2005-2018, then the software platform you are using is legacy, outdated and not supported as the original framework was built in 2005. It is impossible for us to keep up with older technology as it moves very fast. Ay changes on computer, files, operating system updates or requirements, or something unknown to us either can render the program non-functional. We cannot maintain a viable model by troubleshooting or supporting each individual’s systems, configurations and legacy products anymore (especially when your older product is outside its 6 months warranty period from time of order). As such, the legacy software platform was pulled off our product line last year. As always, we are committed to maintaining our products’ legendary reliability, and so we continually develop and improve our product line. As our products and technologies evolve, we find that older software versions and products don’t deliver the significant advantages of our current products. Our focus is entirely on the future going towards the Cloud/Web/Mobile Platform. •All orders come with 6 months of warranty. We simply don’t provide support outside of this period. If your ordered more than 6 months ago you will need to obtain the latest and newest 2020 Crack the OAT  

So now what?

•The 2005-2018 software platform is officially being decommissioned on December 31, 2019 as we’ve provided nearly 15 years of continual updates (at no charge) and unlimited access (for the life of this old outdated platform and service). •We’ve rolled out an entirely brand new 2020 product that is designed from scratch designed for a Cloud/Web/Mobile platform. This has been in the works for many years (so you know it’s got to be good and many students are already using it!).

Major benefits and value-adds include multiple device access, automatic syncing, mobile app functionality, new content, OAT Video Crash Courses and better adaptability and integration to newer technology at scale.

What does this mean for me?

•If you ordered Crack the OAT between 2005-2018, then your membership terminates on December 31, 2019.  •Option #1: You can continue using the software platform you have physically installed on your computer up until December 31, 2019.
