Background: Non-traditional student currently doing a post bacc. I studied while taking 18 units and working part time as a dental assistant. I took off the last 2 weeks off before my test. Started studying during winter break in mid December. On days that I had...
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've read about a million of these and always formulated what I would say when I got my score. Now that I'm doing it I kind of have writers block so I'll do my best and keep this short and sweet. I hope this can give some of you some insight as to how the 2019 DAT is or maybe a little more...
I've been lurking on SDN for years and the breakdowns and all the other advice I've gotten off here has tremendously helped me so I thought I'd give back what I can and hopefully help out some of you predents on there. This is basically how i went from a 19AA and 17TS to a 21AA and 22TS...
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...
Scores: PAT 23, QR 27, RC 30, Biology 25, GC 23, OC 30, TS 26, AA 27
Feel free to message me with any questions on applying or anything! I’d love to help out.

Hours per Day: 6 to 12 approximately

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 have been using crack the DAT to practice reading and... I am doing TERRIBLE!!! I scored a 16 on most of the practice tests so I am kinda freaking out... for those who already took the DAT, is cdr similar to the actual DAT in terms of difficulty??
I just took my DAT for the third time today, and scored a 22 AA. Let me start by saying that I NEVER thought I would be posting anything on SDN. I would usually lurk on the threads and feel bad about my GPA/DAT scores LOL. I studied for about 4 months total (I know that seems like a long time)...
I just retook my DAT for the third time.
here is my breakdown for all my attempts.
BIO 18 --> 21 --> 28 (+8)
CHEM 19 --> 25 --> 24 (-1)
OCHEM 15 --> 24 -->30 (+6) :soexcited:
QR 15 --> 21 --> 22 (+1)
PAT 17 --> 21--> 22 (+1)
RC 17 -->...
Couldn't have done well without this website, so I wanted to give my take in hopes it can help others. I took my DAT at the end of January and figured I'd finally share my experience.
I'm a senior who will be applying this...
I just wanted to write this to help out anyone who is studying for the DAT right now. This was my first time taking the DAT (took it today). I'm currently a 4th year in college, honestly did not know what I wanted to do with my life until last year. I spent about 2 months...
So i just took my DAT couple days ago.

Hey guys, took the DAT today and I'll try to keep this brief and share what I thought the most important things were that helped me feel prepared.
I followed Ari's 10 week study schedule for about 5 weeks, then messed around and took a two week hiatus, then studied on my own for about a week...
Hello, SDN community!
- Nontraditional student, transferred from Cal-State Northridge and my local community college to UCLA with history as my major. I was attending both colleges at the same time my 2nd year...
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...
DAT Breakdown below.
26AA | 28 TS | 30 OC | 27 GC | 26 Bio | 22 RC | 24 QR | 25 PAT
Special thanks to Ari at DAT Bootcamp & DAT Destroyer. I am a non-traditional student who hasn't taken Biology in 10 years, work full-time, and am not a "good" test taker. My only opportunities to study were...
Before I start… I apologize for how lengthy this post is!
I took my test yesterday! I studied for around 10-11 weeks. The first month and a half was inconsistent studying, and I studied between 0-6 hours a day (probably with a mean of 3-4 hours a day). I didn’t crack down until the last month...
Just took the DAT and since I always looked at other sdn'ers breakdowns during my downtime, thought I'd share my own testing experience. Firstly, I want to thank Ari, orgoman (dat destroyer), feralis, and scsc7211. I would not have gotten my scores if it weren't for them.
Hi guys, I just got back from my exam and thought I'd post this breakdown as quick as possible to get my fresh thoughts posted. My goal was to get an AA of 22 and well I did meet my goal and I'm very happy. I hope this breakdown can give you some insight on what I did to prepare for this exam...
Officially done! I can't tell you how good it feels to have this test completed, it quite literally took over my life these past 2 months. During my time studying this forum was my lifeline. SDN would immediately have a response to my most obscure questions, so I wanted to post a quick version...
I just took my DAT this morning and managed to score fairly well.
21/ 23/ 23/ 20/ 21/ 22/ 22/ 22
I can honestly say I performed far better than I thought I did once I finished the end survey.
First things first. I studied a bit on and off...
Hi SDN! I took the DAT July 26 2017 and I'm finally done with the beast. I scored a 22 TS, 21 AA and my full breakdown is (see attachment for paper copy):
Organic Chemistry: 22
General Chemistry: 22
I know my scores aren't...
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.
I took the DAT a few days ago. If you're reading this then you are doing exactly what I had done for the past two weeks straight it feels like. And reading about 24AA scores made me feel inadequate and dumb. Hopefully this helps out some more normal folks like myself. Remember that this is just...
I just took my DAT and I want to give some hope to the rest of you studying!
I did SO MUCH BETTER on my actual DAT than DAT bootcamp practice tests. I don't think that is the norm but there is the possibility to bring up your scores. I retook each practice test and I really made sure that I...
So for the past 2 weeks or so I've been reading all the DAT breakdowns and they've both given me hope as well as a ridiculous sense of dread that I'm not going to be anywhere near there. So I just wanted to give out my 2cents for those in between-ers. I studied for around 4 weeks. The first week...
So you all provided me with tons of resources during my study process, so this is my way of saying thank you. Thank you for the breakdowns and video links and encouragement! I am going to try to make this breakdown as useful as possible so please excuse the length. I went in aiming...
DAT Bootcamp full length practice tests:
First and foremost, I would like to thank Ari from DAT Bootcamp and Chad from Course Saver. I would not have been...
Hey everyone! I'm new to the forums but I want to say that SDN has really helped me a lot in terms of resources, reassurance, and knowing what to do moving forward. I found other people's breakdowns super helpful so I wanted to give back. I registered for my DAT in December 2016 and started...

First of all, I want to thank SDN for this amazing community. Without this website and the people, I may not have attained these scores. This breakdown is for all my fellow non-traditional students. I have a lot to say, so please brace yourself for a long breakdown.
I just took the DAT and first I have to say, I have never felt better to have it done!!! Once I saw my scores I literally sat there and just smiled at the screen for a good 5 minutes. (I know they are not the most impressive ever seen on SDN, but I am very very proud of myself)...
Took the DAT today! I looked at so many other peoples posts to get an idea where I stood before I took it so I figured it might be helpful to other people. I would say I'm a pretty average pre-dental student. I studied for 10 weeks 5-8 hours a day 5-6 times a week. I took some days off...
I just finished my DAT and I've specifically created an account just to give back and give advice. Literally made it after my exam haha. My score is not super high by any means, lol this website is filled with 24's. I am proud of how I did I studied literally all summer and I'm...
