TEAS update (03/14/2020) – Students should contact ATI customer care to reschedule their dates.
All other On Campus Testing Update (03/13/2020) – due to the closure of Georgia State University starting March 16 for two weeks, we will be unable to test during this time. You can log onto our RegisterBlast sites and follow the instructions on how to reschedule your exam:
Fluency in the English language and a broad knowledge of literature, philosophy, history, science, mathematics and fine arts will affect performance. MAT analogies state a correspondence between two things that are otherwise dissimilar. The equation for this is A:B::C:D or A is to B as C is to D.
Below are two examples of MAT type analogies:
- Grant:2::Hoover:(a. 1, b. 2, c. 3, d. 4) The answer is a.1. Grant served two terms as president. Hoover served one term.
- I:(a. V, b. X, c. D, d. XX)::C:M The answer is b. X. This is the Roman numeral for ten. Therefore, I (one) is to X (10) as C (100) is to M (1,000).
