    DAT AA Calculator - DAT Bootcamp

    Hey everyone! 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...

    DAT Retake - already used bootcamp so now what do I do

    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...

    Caution using DATbootcamp for the Canadian DAT

    Hey everyone, 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 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.

    Best way to take notes in studying for the DAT?

    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?

    DAT Bootcamp GC Test #9 Question #2

    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...
