FAQ about preparation materials

Q How do I access my preparation materials?   
A The materials are online only; hard copies and PDF versions of the materials are not available. Log in to your account to access the materials.

Q Will I be able to access the preparation materials as soon as I have paid?
A As soon as your payment has been processed successfully, you will receive an email with instructions to access your materials.

Q I never received any email after I purchased a preparation material. Where do I go to access the materials?
A Firstly, please check your junk/spam mail folder to ensure the email we sent you did not end up there. If the email is not there, you need to save the UMAT email address (umat@acer.edu.au) in your address book, because some email providers aggressively block emails. Adding the UMAT email address to your address book generally solves the problem. You can access the preparation materials by logging in to your account.

Q Can I save the preparation materials on my desktop and view it offline?
A No, you will need to be logged in to your account to use the online tests.

Q How long will I have access to the materials?
A The purchase of a preparation material (including the Practice Test 1 provided as part of your registration) entitles you to unrestricted access to the online practice test you have purchased for 12 months commencing on the date the practice test is made accessible to you for the sole purpose of reading and attempting questions online.

Q When were the online practice tests released?
A Practice Test 1 is included with the UMAT2016 registration and is an updated edition of the UMAT Practice Test first published in 2008. Practice Test 2 is an updated edition of the Practice Test 2 first published in 2009. In 2011, 12 questions were added to each test.

Practice Test 3 and Additional Practice Questions were both released in 2013. Additional Practice Questions 2 is a new publication.

Q Where are the answers for the preparation materials?
A Answers to all questions are given at the end of the online practice tests.
