Learn How to Quickly Solve Difficult
FSOT Test Questions

Dear Friend,

Here's a little secret about the FSOT: the FSOT is what we in the test preparation field call a content-driven test.

While some tests are looking to see what you are ABLE to learn, the purpose of the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT), offered by the U.S. Department of State, is to test your understanding of what you have already learned. The goal of the FSOT is to use a standardized testing process to create an objective assessment of a test taker's knowledge and skills.

In other words, it's more about what you know than your ability to solve clever puzzles. This is good news for those who are serious about being prepared, because it boils down to a very simple strategy:

You can succeed on the FSOT and become a Foreign Service Officer (FSO) by learning critical concepts on the test so that you are prepared for as many questions as possible.

Repetition and thorough preparation is a process that rewards those who are serious about being prepared, which means that succeeding on the FSOT is within the reach of virtually anyone interested in learning the material.

This is great news! It means that if you've been worried about your upcoming FSOT, you can rest easy IF you have a good strategy for knowing what to study and how to effectively use repetition to your advantage.

But it also creates another set of problems.

If you tried to memorize every single possible thing you can for the FSOT, the field of possible things to review would be so huge that you could not hope to cover everything in a reasonable time.

That's why we created the FSOT Flashcards Study System: we have taken all of the possible topics and reduced them down to the hundreds of concepts you must know and provided an easy-to-use learning method to guarantee success on the FSOT.

We wanted this system to be simple, effective, and fast so that you can succeed on your FSOT with a minimum amount of time spent preparing for it.

Here Are Some of the Features of Our
FSOT Flashcards Study System

  • Study after study has shown that repetition is the most effective form of learning, and nothing beats flash cards when it comes to making repetitive learning fun and fast
  • Flash cards engage more of your senses in the learning process; you compete with yourself to see if you understand the topics, and the flipping action gets you actively involved in the learning process
  • Our cards are printed on heavy, bright white 67 lb. cover stock, and are laser printed at 1200 dpi on our industrial printers; these are professional-quality cards that will not smear or wear out with heavy usage
  • We cover all the major content areas on the exam
  • Our FSOT flash cards include an edge that is micro-perforated, which means that you are much less likely to have a painful papercut on your fingers when moving quickly through the cards
  • Our cards are portable, making it easy for you to grab a few and study while waiting for the bus or the doctor, or anywhere where you have a spare moment that would otherwise be wasted
  • Our cards are written in an easy to understand, straightforward style; we don't include any more technical jargon than what you need to pass the test
  • The cards are a generous size, 3.67 x 4.25 inches, that fits perfectly in your hands and they aren't so small that you have to use a magnifying glass to read tiny type; all questions and answers are in a normal-size print for easy studying
  • Our concept cards include in-depth explanations; you won't see any one-word answers that require you to go get a textbook to figure out what's going on. All of our cards include generous, thorough explanations so if you didn't understand the concept, you will after reading the back of the card!
  • We use a font that's been proven to be very readable; this will enable you to absorb more information painlessly during late night study sessions
  • Our system enables you to study in small, digestible bits of information; unlike using boring textbooks, flash cards turn learning into a game you can play until you've mastered the material
  • It's easy for a friend to help you study. They don't even have to know anything about the FSOT ; if they can read, then they can quiz you with our FSOT flash cards!

Now, let us explain what the FSOT Flashcards Study System is not. It is not a comprehensive review of your education, as there's no way we could fit that onto a single set of flashcards.

Don't get us wrong: we're not saying that memorization alone will automatically result in a passing FSOT score- you have to have the ability to apply it as well. However, without the foundation of the core concepts, you cannot possibly hope to apply the information. After all, you can't apply what you don't know.

FSOT Flashcards Study System is a compilation of the hundreds of critical concepts you must understand to pass the FSOT. Nothing more, nothing less.
