I never got anything higher than a 19 on all of my practice tests. I don't know how I pulled a 21 but I am very thankful for that. My advise is to always always always study your old practice tests. go through all the questions and all the possible answers especially for the biology section. With the reading, all you can do is practice your style of doing it. I used Search & Destroy method / scanning. Also you want to do as many practice tests as you can. I did about 8 of them.
EDIT: I need to also mention that dental schools do look at the reading section carefully. The reason for that is because that is a very good indication of how the student will do in dental school. The first 2 years is mainly academic and you will be needing to do a heavly load of reading in short time periods and need to be able to get the important information.
I did Crack DAT reading, I did all and the average was about 17...
