Practicing for GAT Analogies

Build your vocabulary. Analogy questions test you vocabulary to a greater extent. If you don’t know the meaning of words in question or the options, it would become really difficult to do well on the NTS GAT analogy questions. Therefore, work hard towards building a good solid vocabulary base.

Do not focus on just the difficult vocabulary. Furthermore, always learn words that cover a wide array of areas. If you only learn hard level words without focusing on easier ones, you may end up learning words that you won’t see on your GAT test day.

Use your vocabulary often. Additionally, don’t just learn word lists. Make sure you apply and use those new words wherever possible to ensure you consolidate them. By simply learning lists you risk forgetting a lot of them and mixing or confusing what you learned.
