About the author:


I'm a Harvard graduate and a parent of three wonderful children. But when it came to finding online resources to help my kids for GATE testing, I found virtually nothing. I had worked for a college prep testing company and decided I could do a better job preparing my kids for the test.

I designed these practice tests after studying actual tests and using their methodologies.
