Kaplan's UMAT Self Study course provides you with the methods, strategies and practice you need to get a top score on the UMAT exam. Your personal online study centre will help you to work through the material at a flexible pace and is a good alternative if you can't make it to our Live Online course.

UMAT Self Study course includes:

Over 100 Video Lessons We have broken down our live class lessons into short easy to digest videos. Each lesson is broken down by topic, so it’s easy to target specific test topics and question types when reviewing the material.
4 Strategy Sessions These recorded workshops provide information on scoring, strategies on how to approach and identify different multiple-choice question types, how to get the most out of your UMAT study and strategies to manage timing throughout the exam. 
UMAT Strategy Book Our UMAT Strategy Book is designed to follow along with your lesson videos so you can make notes as you watch. It also includes extra practice and test tips throughout. Self Study course students will automatically receive an eBook, and also have the option to have a book printed and shipped in the shopping cart.  


Your Online Study Center

10 Full-length Practice Tests Once you have finished watching the lesson videos, our test-like practice papers will put your knowledge to the test and also help improve your testing stamina.
Personalized Score Reports After each practice test you will get a score report, which will identify exactly which areas need further improvement. These reports drill down to test section, topic and even question type to help you target your next area of focus.
Detailed Explanations Each sample question comes complete with worked answers and explanations of why the alternative answer choices were not correct, as well as the reason for the correct choice. This will help you to build a thorough understanding of all the question types, making future questions easier to solve.
