    September 2020 DAT Breakdown (25 AA/ 24TS/ 23 PA)

    Background: I am a Bio major just now starting my Junior year.

    Bootcamp GC vs. DAT

    Just wondering everyones opinion on the Gen. Chem on the Bootcamp compared to your actual DAT. I know the test is different for everyone, but by completely understand/knowing all Gen. Chem questions on test 1-5, is this sufficient for the real DAT?
