p.a.t. prep
released P.a.t. exams
MR. MARTíNEZ'S preparation suggestions
1. Once you have reviewed or study a specific outcome, do the BOOKLET that covers that outcome.
2. This is because BEFORE YOU TRY TO SOLVE the P.A.T.s in here, I think you would be better off working on similaroutcome questions, and this way you can understand the difficulty levels within each outcome.
3. After you have tried the BOOKLETS, work on the P.A.Ts.
4. I have not included the answers to the individual booklets, but I have those of the P.A.T.s. The answers to the booklets, then, are found on the actual P.A.T.s solutions I have included.

P.A.T. questions grouped
per "category"
A NOTE ON THIS BREAKDOWN AND GROUPING OF QUESTIONS:
In order to come up with these "groupings", I took the 2010, 2013 and 2015 P.A.T.s, cut out every single question ,and once I noticed any similarities or emerging patterns, I put them together into categories. Similar questions were those that covered the same concept, as well as questions that dealt with the same common theme, and they were grouped together regardless of the difficulty each question.
These categories, therefore, were the categories that "jumped out at me", which makes them my personal classification, and by no means they are the only and exclusive way to break and group the questions down. I am willing to bet that many other people who also do a dissection and analysis of the tests would come up with different groupings, based on different classification criteria.
I can say, however, the criteria I used to group questions together were the outcomes (the concepts you are expected to know), and my hope is that by doing so, your preparation becomes easier and "things" start to make more sense.
