    Summer 2019 DAT Breakdown (23AA, 25PAT)

    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...

    PATBooster or Joel's Keyhole strategy?

    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...

    Is it possible to study for both the dat and mcat at the same time?

    Hi everyone, 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!

    Is it possible to study for the MCAT and DAT at the same time?

    Is this for real?

    This is from the Bootcamp generator. I am no expert but this is definitely not a realistic DAT question... anyone else having problems with these generators?

    Schedule or no schedule

    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.

    Bootcamp Bio Score

    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?

    DAT retake?

    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.
