    Hello guys, can you enlighten me as to which one of these PAT's is the most accurate compared to the real DAT?

    For some reason, I can score easily 22+ on Crack and ace the keyholes; however, Kaplan I struggle to get 7-8/15 on keyholes.

    I feel as though the keyholes in Kaplan are a bit *off*. I dunno.

    Whats the most accurate representation? I'm taking my test on Thursday, so if its kaplan, I need to cram cram cram.

    Hey Rainee,
    I am having the SAME problem! I am great at Crack the DAT but not Kaplan PAT at all! I see that you posted this some time ago...did you take the DAT? What did you think?
    I am so glad to see someone like me on here! :)

    Crack DAT pat worked wonders for me on all sections, On CDP I scored a 19, then a 20, then another 20, 21, 21, 21, 22, 22, finally 23 on the last try. I still have one test remaining. I took my DAT two days ago and scored a 24 on PAT. Crack DAT pat prepared me very well! Hope it does for you. I didn't pay much attention to pat sections on Kaplan.

    I think Crack DAT was the best representation of the real DAT. I think my scores were like 21, 20, 20, 22, 23. And on the actual PAT section of my DAT i scored a 23. I felt like angles and hole punching were a bit easier on the real DAT but pattern folding and keyholes were harder. But i think the differences average themselves out, so if you're scoring in the 20s on Crack DAT, you'll probably score similarly on the actual thing.

    CDP is the closest. I haven't don't Kaplan's PAT but Achiever is WAY tougher. Don't worry about low pat scores on Achiever. I started at 17 in Achiever and my test 7 score was a 19 (the highest I ever got in achiever). I scored a very comfortable 23 on the real thing so it gives you an estimate of the difference in difficulty. Use it for practice but don't stress over the scores!
