About the CogAT

The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) consists of three batteries: verbal battery, non-verbal battery, and quantitative battery. Each battery contains three sub-tests. 

We have developed different practice packs of the CogAT for different grades. Make sure to check with your school which test your child should be taking. 

You can also take a look at our pages offering more detailed information about the batteries, sample questions, scoring methods, and more. It is important to have all the details about the test before you take it to avoid unnecessary surprises (for example, having less time than planned to solve each question).

The CogAT also has a different form called the CogAT Screening Form. This new test consists of the first sub-test in each battery.

Make sure to check our sample questions for the CogAT. The idea behind the sample questions is to be familiar with the format of the test, the difficulty, and the questions themselves. Sample questions are always good to make a preliminary assessment of your skills. If there is a type of question that you recognize as particularly problematic, then perhaps you should focus your efforts into getting used to that type of question. Conversely, for questions that you can solve more easily, perhaps you will find that the time saved in those questions is good enough to have extra practice, or to overall create a good preparation environment.

Click here for a look at our practice materials. These free samples will allow you to get a feel for the types of questions that appear on the CogAT. Each sample test is followed by answers and detailed explanations for each question.

When buying our practice packs, you get study guides to refresh some of the most challenging topics, a full-length simulation, and you can even get a section with challenging questions for extra practice or an enrichment section. Make sure you go through all the questions before the test. Also, we advise you start practicing with ample time so that you are not pressured and can dedicate the right amount of time to each question.

Ideally, you should take two weeks to prepare for a test having already gathered the information. The study strategy is already something more personal. Some people prefer studying in the morning, first reviewing all the material, and only then going through the questions. Other people prefer trying to solve each question first, reading the explanation if they do not succeed, and if they are stuck, resort to a study guide if the topic is not fresh enough.

Studying Tips

The key to a good study session is organization. Start by preparing the study material and reading it. Check out our study guides for more information about certain topics. Make sure you are well-rested before you start studying. Often, people prefer having a small snack instead of a full meal before sitting down and studying.

Once you begin, try to focus on each question. Attempt to solve it first, write down your reasoning in a piece of paper and after you submit your answer, check the explanation. Was there a mistake? Try reading the explanation and understanding both the strategy, and the mistake. Did you choose the correct answer? Great! If you want, you can still read the explanation to compare strategies. Perhaps yours is more efficient, or perhaps you can learn something new about the question.

Have you finished a test? You can review your solutions. If you employed our strategy, you can move to a different test. Otherwise, you can review the questions you got wrong to learn the proper solution. After that, you may go over all the solutions to learn as much as possible.

You can always retake the tests and quizzes, track your progress, and compare. Make sure you do not exhaust yourself studying, resting is also a key part of the preparation process. Once you are recuperated, you can try the tests again to see if you can solve it without looking at the explanation.

Finally, for timed tests, you can time yourself and check that you are up to the time constraints or rehearse to improve your speed.
