I took my DAT recently and did pretty well for studying under 4 weeks. I thought it would be worthwhile making a thread for students who are in a time crunch and want to get the most out of their studying time like I did. Here is my score breakdown and how I prepared:
I was initially going to take the DAT in the fall but because classes took up so much time, I was only able to prepare for the PAT section during the fall and postponed my DAT until the winter when I had a lighter courseload. If you want to start preparing for the DAT early (during the school...
I took my oat exam today and did well! - I read some posts before my exam that were helpful so I decided to write one too.
I would like to share some helpful tips that I discovered along the way and some advice based on my personal experience. It might work for you and it might not...
How is the physics section? Is it optics heavy? Do we really need to know all of the equations, or are the basic ones most important. I think chad's videos are very mcat oriented. Is all of that covered on the exam? Are destroyers a more accurate representation of the OAT?
Sorry for all the...
At first I wasn't going to post a "Complete OAT experience" but I figured I would since the ones I read helped me a lot. There are so many great ones so I will try to make this one as brief, yet useful, as possible. (Nonetheless don't judge my scores, I spent a total of $50 to study...
Hi everyone! Im on a bit of a time crunch and I was wondering if someone could offer me some advice.
Im deciding between watching all of Chads videos for physics + Cracking OAT Princeton review to supplement or if I could get away with JUST using the Princeton review to save time. Since crack...
If anyone is interested in studying for the DAT together, I have most of the popular DAT study tools & Subscriptions and don't mind sharing. Direct Message me :) Let's conquer this test together!
So I'm taking my OAT exam in 5 weeks, and have been primarily using Chad's videos/quizzes, the fat Kaplan Strategies book, and Kaplan MCAT Biology review for preparation. I had three questions regarding to preparation:
1. Does anyone know how Chad's questions compare to the real...
Just finished taking the DAT today! I know that when I was studying the past couple months, reading other people's breakdown really helped me, so I wanted to do my part and share my thoughts and my study materials on the DAT.
Haven't used either yet, wanted the insight of my fellow pre dents, or current dental students on how either or has helped in their knowledge of the subject. Just started studying for the DAT recently so wanted to make a proper decision in which one to purchase. Thanks.
Today, I bought bootcamp so that I can review Mike's videos.
I will buy Chad's videos for QR (Math) for sure.
BUT I'm just concerned if it would be okay to go with only Mike's videos for Gc and OG, and not choosing Chad's videos because many people support how Chad's videos boost their...
I am a predental student now a junior in college. I am taking my DAT this summer that way next summer I can focus just on applying and shadowing. I was wondering if there is anyone who would want to share the account for Chad's videos and maybe even DAT boot camp? We could do this via Venmo...
I have the Kaplan book, and I've gone through Chad's videos and taken thorough notes on those too. I noticed that Chad's orgo videos and his reaction table have a lot more detail than the Kaplan book - does anyone know which might be closer to the actual DAT?
Just took the 2009 ADA DAT, and thought I absolutely KILLED it... Was very surprised by my scores (other than bio/PAT, that is):
GC 21, OC 20, RC 21, QR 19, PAT 23, BIO 28
TS 22, AA 21.8
I thought the math on the 2009 ADA DAT was absolutely terrible... Thought I would get a 16 lol. Felt...
Ok guys, I know my scores aren't the highest you're going to see on here, but I wanted to do a breakdown anyways. I know how I looked at a ton of breakdowns before I took my DAT and I know I got a little something different from each one, so I hope this helps!
First off, my...
Hello, I am new here so please pardon if I don't do or answer something the right way. I made this thread to ask if I am on the right track in terms of studying because I didn't know who to ask for guidance. Any advice or recommendation would be very helpful.
Okay so I scheduled to take my DAT...
Question: so in Chad's videos it is suggested that an increase in Ea (activation energy) causes a decrease in the reaction coefficient k, because an increased Ea will decrease the rate. However, in Princeton Review it is suggested that thermodynamics (i.e. Ea) are independent of kinetics (i.e...
Question for all you DAT-students out there: if I just use DAT Destroyer and Chad's videos (along with the Princeton Review's Cracking the DAT) for the sciences, Math Destroyer/DAT Destroyer for math, and Crack the PAT for the PAT, should that be sufficient to do well in everything? What else...
First Question-- I'm aware that Chad is in some sort of dispute with course saver, but his videos are still on the course saver website. I wanted to purchase a 30 day subscription for his videos on course saver-- and tried multiple times to make a purchase-- but the website wouldn't let...
Hello! I finally finished the DAT!!! YAY! This was my second time taking the DAT and I want to share my DAT experience with everyone on sdn. If anyone has a question, don't hesitate to ask. =)
BIOLOGY: Cliffs AP...
So over the past year I've taken the DAT 3 times and finally last week I felt proud with my results the third time.
First time scores - I was really nervous my first time. I didn't know what to expect and everything became a guessing game because I lost my train of thought.

I wanted to make this post because everyone keeps asking what I did, what my timeline was, how practice tests went, what materials to use, etc. and I'd like to just have it at one spot where I hopefully address all those concerns! Warning...
