Hey guys! I recently took my DAT and scored pretty well, I just wanted to share my experience studying for the DAT. The main resource I utilized was DATBooster and it was the highest yield resource I've used, I also used DATbootcamp for a bit but do not suggest getting it as I feel like some...
Hey guys! So I took the DAT recently and scored pretty well!!! I’m so relieved to have finally finished this exam, it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders, especially because this was the second time I took the DAT. The first time I took the test was in February, but I...
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've been using the PATBooster keyhole strategy recently and have had more success with it than Bootcamp's Keyhole strategy but i'm still a little worried. I haven't seen many people using it. I'm consistently scoring about 13-14/15 on keyholes now versus ~10-11/15 with Bootcamp's strategy. Has...
Recently purchased dat Bootcamp and was wondering if the bio, gen chem and o chem is the same for the mcat. I know that both exams have differences as far as pat, physics, bio chem, and math, but I wanted to know mainly for bio, gen chem and o chem. Thanks everyone!
Hi everyone. I purchased DAT Bootcamp a while ago and have been studying to take the dat. I wanted to know if the topics in bio and chem and Ochem will be the same for the MCAT. I know the dat has different topics like PAT and Calc and Stats and the MCAT has physics and Biochem, but let me know...
This has been a long emotional journey and I can't believe i'm writing this breakdown now. I took the DAT and I couldn’t be happier with my scores. I literally almost cried on my way home looking at my scores. First of all, I would like to thank Ari, Dr. Romano, and Shahed for creating such...
This is a question for those who have taken the Canadian DAT, I just signed up for the Canadian DAT an hour ago so i'm trying to figure out everything. I have about 6 weeks left to study but i don't know what materials i should be using to prepare given the amount of time i have. All of my...
I'm a recent graduate (Neuroscience major) and will be applying to dental school next year. In undergrad I went through all the major science courses (Biol, Chem, Orgo, Physics). I have about 4 months before my DAT and just wanted to confirm if i'm using the right resources before I carry on...
Okay so im kinda pissed. About 3 weeks ago I spend 5-6 hours on a full-length practice test and the score did not get saved!!!!! I was pissed and some of my friends were having the same issue. I tried it again on random tests and it wasn't saving the scores. I stopped using bootcamp to use...
I signed up for the DAT for the winter but im not sure whether i should follow a schedule or not. I heard good and bad things about ari's bootcamp schedule so im debating if i should follow it or not. Im taking 3 classes and working as a researcher in a lab part-time.
I recently completed DAT Bootcamp and did not feel ready so I pushed my test date back and took a month off of studying to gather myself and spend time with loved ones. I am trying to decide if I should go through Ari's 10-week Study guide again or do a 6-week kaplan live online course. Has...
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...
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 thought I would put out a review/any info to help because I used these threads a lot while studying for the DAT. This summer was pretty much hell, but so worth it. In the end I ended up with the following:
Here is what I did to study...
I have 27 days left until my test date.
I've been using Ari's Study Guide but I was taking summer session so it cut into my studying (for the first month).
I planned everything out but I will be able to do everything EXCEPT Days 46-55. Roughly about 10 days. I am planning on omitting those...

How similar are the DAT bootcamp QR tests to the 2017 DAT?
I am doing the new comparison questions on DAT bootcamp and am struggling to understand them.
I also am struggling with my timing for the PAT section so if anyone has ANY suggestions/recommendations for what I should do for that, that...
Just took my dat on july 25th and figured I'd post a breakdown. Studied for 2-3 months using destroyer, Crack Pat, bootcamp and chads and Achiever. I scored:
3.78 gpa. 3.68 science gpa
First, I would like to say I am very happy I am done...
I've taken all of the practice tests on Dat bootcamp. I've done fine on all the sections, except in biology I've been stuck getting 19-20. I've only managed a 23 once. Some of the questions seem very specific so I'm worried because my dat is in 1.5 weeks. Any advice?
I have my Dat scheduled for this upcoming week for july 27, feeling unsteady. So far I used Dat destroyer and bootcamp not finished with all the exams yet.
Worst case, if I need to retake my DAT end of october does that mean I have no hope ? my gpa is average.
Hey guys, I took the DAT a few hours ago and thought I would make a breakdown to give back to the amazing people of SDN. Here it goes!
Resources used: DAT Bootcamp, Chad's Videos for GC and OC, Cliff's AP Biology 3rd Edition...
I have my dat exam in less then a month this is my second time taking it first time i got
Did not even get interview
First time all i used was the destroyer and had a weak bio foundation
For this tome around i have...
So I pushed my DAT date back about a month and my bootcamp subscription just ran out. Does anyone have a month leftover that they're not going to use and willing to lend me? I do not have a problem paying for it, I just do not want to pay for a full three months. Let me know!!
I just finished a dat Bootcamp test today.(I already finish full-length test, so I combine the every #7 subject test to a full length) I will have my exam in a week.
The score break down:
I feel I could do better on RC/PAT, because I am disturbed...
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...
Never thought I'd write a breakdown post on SDN, but it's almost 3 AM and I have nothing better to do lol.
Perceptual Ability Test: 24
Quantitative Reasoning: 22
Reading Comprehension : 25 (miracle)
General Chemistry: 24
Organic Chemistry: 23
Total Science: 22
So lets say you have roughly ~45 days left till dat day, you have taken the dat last year, didnt do well, and this time you want to take revenge
you have went over destroyer's gen chem/bio (plan on going over it a second time after I look over my chads notes)
you have done kaplan/cliffs/ and...
Hey everyone! So I started studying for the DAT early December and it's scheduled for February 8 (about 2 months of studying). The first month I spent about 6 hours a day in average studying and have been studying 8-10 a day since the beginning of January (1 month before test). I've seen some...
14. N2(g) + 3H2(g) ⇌ 2NH3(g) ; ΔH° = -92.22 kJ•mol-1
Which change would decrease the Keq in the above reaction?
A. Adding an iron catalyst.
B. Decreasing the volume of the vessel.
C. Injecting H2 gas.
D. Cooling ammonia gas into a liquid.
E. Increasing the temperature.
I took the DAT a few months ago and I found it super helpful to read through all the breakdown threads. Now that I have some free time (aka procrastinating on homework), I can finally write a my own breakdown. Hopefully this will be helpful to some of you. :)
Hi guys! I'm new to posting on SDN here but I would really love to give back to all you wonderful people especially after looking up so many DAT-related posts.
I took my DAT on September 7th after about 2.5 months of studying:
First off, a...
I am taking the Canadian DAT in November. I have already taken the American DAT on August 10th and so the material is still relatively fresh in my head. However, the test is in approx. 7 weeks and I am currently in the middle of a pretty heavy semester with 5 courses.
I'm interested to know if...
I have posted on here a few days ago, and I'm doing it again. I really need some advice.
I have already applied to my in state school and they're waiting on my DAT score.
I have studied but honestly I feel like I'm going to fail the DAT. I take it in 2 days.
I haven't done horrible on...
Reading about others’ experiences with the OAT on this forum really helped me so I figured I’d share my experience as well! Here are my scores from my practice tests and the actual OAT.
