    According to my Kaplan lesson book, the topics are:
    Cell and Molecular biology, diversity of life, Vertebrate Anatomy, Development biology, Evolution, and Ecology. From what I experienced (your test might be different), I found these to be emphasized the most on the OAT.

    When you sign up for either the Kaplan OAT classroom course, online course or tutoring, they send you two textbooks. The first is the Kaplan OAT lesson book, which basically is an outline of each classroom lesson. the 2nd is a 1000 page review text and this is an exhaustive review of all the sciences (bio,chem.orgo,phys). You can’t go to the bookstore and buy these books. You need to be registered for a Kaplan course.

    Don't waste your money and time on the Kaplan course just for those books! I used the Kaplan MCAT Comphrehensive Review Book (available at Borders, or any bookstore can order if not in stock). About 1000 pages and tells you everything you need to know. I have taken the OAT twice and my scores in every category jumped about 40 points (some 60) just from studying the MCAT review book.

    I also purchased the Kaplan OAT Practice Test Book... this is a good way to practice tests that actually are like the OAT (versus MCAT). In the front of this book it lists the specific subjects. However, be aware that it does not include everything... I know from taking the test twice that anything is fair game. So if you are trying to narrow down your subjects for study, I wouldn't. Take the time to do the work that is necessary for your success on the OAT.

    I highly advise taking the computerized version versus the written test. I know it is all that is available now, but I really think that the self-paced nature of the test allows the student to perform much better.
