I would love advice on what studying resource to use for my third attempt!
1st attempt: 2021 used DAT Bootcamp, Chad's Prep. score breakdown: AA:16,TS: 17,PAT: 16,QR:13,RC:16,BIO:16,GC: 16,OC: 17.
- I was def not ready this attempt, I rescheduled countless times and just wanted to get...
I just took my DAT yesterday and had an awful experience with the prometric testing center and need your opinions on what you think my next step should be in resolving this. I am applying to dental school this coming cycle (june 2022) and I cannot afford to wait 90 days to retake...
AA —— 29
Hi all, I took the test in 2020 but decided to post this on here in hopes it could help someone!
Bootcamp was the only material I used, and it was fantastic. I studied for about 6 weeks (averaged out to 5ish hours a day) and worked...
My scores on Bootcamp have not been improving as much as I had hoped. Do you think I should delay my test? If I delay it, I would probably push it to December, so that I can study for it during the winter break. However, I am sure I would have to restudy everything at that point, and I fear that...
I wanted to ask this because I heard that the DAT and the OAT are both made by the same company...and the DAT Bootcamp system, which I have heard good things about, works for the OAT. I sent in my primary application earlier this week (it will probably be complete by the end of October...
I've written and re-written this post a few times. I'm just going to shorten the story and say that I shouldn't have had a chance. I graduated in 2017, haven't thought about science since, accepted a promotion that came with a cross-country move (right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic)...
As a first time DAT taker I really didn't know which study resources to use or what to expect on test day. After reading lots of reviews on different resources I decided to get DAT Bootcamp (and only DAT Bootcamp). I've always been a deeply curious student and as a medical biology major I...
I have attached my bootcamp scores for all tests and I want to know if you guys think I will do better or worse on the real thing. I know practice scores aren't a perfect indicator and for every question I get wrong on my exams, I write down the answer on a piece of paper and...
Quick question for those that used DAT Bootcamp in the past.
I was curious as to how accurate the 'AA calculator' is on the site. As in, after taking my practice tests, I then have been plugging my averages for each section into the calculator to see my expected AA score and I'm...
Hi! I took the DAT back in August (scored an 18 AA) and am now prepping for a retake. I used bootcamp before and did all ten practice tests multiple times sooo I don’t really want to use bootcamp again, since I think I’ll remember the questions and it’ll be ineffective.
I already purchased PAT...
Hi, I'm feeling utterly lost and stressed over studying for the DAT and would like some advice on how to use the approximately 18 weeks (as of 9/3 when I posted this) I have before my exam to study. My exam is scheduled for Jan 9.
Just to give some background, I'm currently in my 5th semester...
Resources (comparisons and recommendations)
- I used Bootcamp, Destroyer, Math Destroyer, Orgoman Organic Odyssey, Dynamite Bio notes, and PAT Booster
- I went over the BC twice and the Destroyer twice -- I'm really not a genius...
So I took my DAT yesterday and for the most part, the test went fine. The section that really took me by surprise was the reading comprehension. On the DATBootcamp website, it says there are no difference between the American and Canadian DAT. So I trusted it. I went into the DAT...
so I've been studying for the DAT for about 8 months now and no matter how much I review I can't seem to bring up my DAT Score. I've gone through Kaplan, DAT bootcamp and DAT destroyer. I do the problems and I review afterwards but its like the next test I take I haven't retained anything. I...
scroll down to see my new scores and recommended study method/guide/my personal tips!!!
soooo i retook my OAT today and felt that I needed to share my experience! i couldn't find anyone on here who may have been in a similar situation as mine so here is my post to be that person...
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...
So I just took my DAT a few days ago and wanted to post something because when I was studying I didn't see many posts that struggled with the things I did (aka QR, Gen. Chem, and RC mostly) so I thought this might help those who feel less confident about the DAT leading up to it.
So for study...
:) Hi all! I took my DAT a few weeks ago and just finished my AADSAS application. Now that I have some time on my hands I thought I'd make this in-depth post sharing my prep and experience in case it helps anyone out there. Here are my scores that I'm pretty happy with:
25 AA [27 TS]
25 PAT /...

AA 22/ TS 22/ BIO 22/ GC 23/OC 22/ RC 22/ QR 22/PAT 22
Just a little background about myself, I am your typical Bio major and will be graduating June 2019. My GPA right now is actually slightly on the lower side...

So I'm retaking my DAT on July 26th (got 17 AA last time, yeah I know horrible), and I already took all of the Bootcamp practice exams and DAT qvault (just for bio). I'm averaging about 20's in both for bio, and I'm averaging 19's on GC and OC on bootcamp. I already have used DAT destroyer for...
Hi guys, I recently took my DAT earlier this month and thought I'd just post my breakdown, see if it helps anyone. So here it goes:
Study Materials: Feralis Bio Notes(Comprehensive version now on DAT Bootcamp), DAT Destroyer, Chad's...
I just took my DAT this morning after studying for three months and my scores were awful...I'm so discouraged. I'm aware of the 90-day wait period, but I'm wondering if it's even worth it to try and retake it in September (90 days from now) and attempt to apply for this upcoming...
I am writing this in response to anyone looking for study material. I took my DAT on May 30th and did what I would consider pretty darn good. I would have to say contrary to popular belief DAT destroyer was useless. I order the book went through all the problems and felt as if i learned...
i recently pushed my exam back 3 weeks and am struggling to figure out what to do: I originally went through all of Kaplan and then bought Bootcamp just before the exam. After taking the first five Bootcamp full lengths, my TS was averaging to about a 19-19.5, so I decided to push my exam back...
Hey everyone, so I've been using Mike's videos in conjunction with Chad's to study for both the OC and GC section of the DAT. Maybe someone would like to add their experience with using Mike's, but using both seems like a sure-fire way to do well on the two sections. I took the DAT on a whim...
SO I was studying the biology section and I chose to follow the DAT bootcamp study guide. But I was wondering how good the information will be for the DAT? Does it cover everything needed? Or does it go too in depth? The Anatomy and Physiology section alone is 123 pages! Total it's 400 pages...
Just thought I'd make everyone aware that DAT Bootcamp is increasing their price from $247 to $347 on April 22nd (tomorrow). If you update today, you will still receive access to all future updates. Hope this helps!
I just retook my DAT for the third time.
here is my breakdown for all my attempts.

OCHEM 15 --> 24 -->30 (+6) :soexcited:
QR 15 --> 21 --> 22 (+1)

I am going to start studying for the DAT on Monday and I'm getting excited to start going. What are the most effective ways to take notes while studying? My friend uses OneNote for his MCAT prep notes, but I'm more of a paper and pen person. Although using the computer it will be a lot easier to...
I was particularly confused with this question due to the fact that the answer I got when solving the problem was not one of the available choices. Why, after finding that the number of total Al2O3 atoms is ~6.02*10^21, do we multiply that number by 3 to get the number of O atoms in the...
I just wanted to share my DAT retake experience with all of you. The reason I took the DAT again was I felt it was holding my application back, and I KNEW I could do better. I did not feel it was a true representation of my knowledge in the subject areas. Some say DAT doesn't...
Hey everyone! Can't believe I'm finally making one of these posts. Here is my score breakdown...
QR: 16 :(
Overall, Im happy with my scores except for QR. I really don't want to have to retake unless I really have to... For me, getting a 16 on...

I took the DAT on August 21, 2017. For some background: I am a junior majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Consumer Psychology. Prior to my exam, I had already completely the intro bio track at Penn, as well as the General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry courses. I also had...
