Free Flashcards for the MAT®

These flashcards do not represent the entirety of question types you will see on the MAT®. Instead, for flashcards, we have given you only the word string (not the answer choices). Your job is to figure out which two of the three given words have a relationship. This is the first and most basic step in answering the actual questions. Practicing it should help you to address whole questions and find the correct answer, as you can do in our free practice questions for each type of word relationship and the content areas.

Association Relationships

Before determining the answer to a MAT® association relationship question, you must first identify which two of the three given words have a relationship. Use these flashcards to practice this prerequisite skill.

Classification Relationships

Before you can determine the answer to a MAT® test analogy, you must determine which two of the three given words have a relationship. This set of flashcards will help you practice finding those two words and determining their classification relationship. Classification relationships deal with how words can be categorized or organized.

Content Areas

All of the content for this section (Content Areas) was designed to help you align your knowledge of the four types of analogies on this test (semantic, classification, association, and mathematical/logical) with the type of content knowledge required. Use these flashcards to help you with that first step in solving an analogy: determining which two of the three given words have a relationship and the nature of that relationship.

Logical/Mathematical Relationships

These flashcards will help you with the first step in solving a logical/mathematical analogy on the MAT®. Before looking for the answer, you must first determine which two of the three given words have a relationship and what that relationship is. This type of relationship involves mathematical or logical traits instead of semantics.

Semantic Relationships

All of our flashcards for this test will afford you practice on the very first skill you’ll need to solve MAT® test questions: determining which two of the three given words have a relationship. If you can do this, you will be well on your way to finding the correct answer. This set deals only with analogies that use a semantic relationship—involving the meanings of words.
