I was wondering if anyone could give me any feedback on if they felt the TFE portion of DAT Bootcamp practice tests were similar to the actual 2021 DAT? I felt as though the questions in the practice test were very different from the generator questions. Should I place my focus more on...
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...

Alright guys, so I take my DAT exactly two weeks from today and I've been doing pretty well in most areas but am struggling with my timing and a few sections on the PAT (specifically keyhole and TFE). When I start a new PAT test (I use both PAT Booster and DAT bootcamp), I immediately skip to...
I cant seem to wrap my head around:
I took 2 tests and my timing was perfect, but I simply am hit or miss with angle ranking, I'll either get 12-13/15 or 6/15 and lately its been on the lower end of the spectrum.
For TFE, my hardest thing to...
I am studying for the cDAT in November and I was wondering what tools you all recommend for PAT? I heard that the Bootcamp PAT and possibly Kaplan's blue book is somewhat helpful.
Are these resources helpful or are there any other resources you may recommend?
I am taking my DAT in 9 days, and I have been practicing and really struggling with rock keyholes and keyholes in general. I’ve used Bootcamp and DAT Genius to study. I know about looking for details with normal keyholes, but rocks can be really difficult. Any advice is appreciated...
Hi everyone, so I know AR and TFE are pretty notorious for being some of the more difficult PAT sections to master. With angle ranking I've been doing practice everyday for the past few months (mainly using bootcamp generators) but I've seemed to hit a plateau recently and cant ever get more...
Hello, all! I am new to SDN, but I have been reading threads for the last few months, and everyone has such great insights!
I'm currently studying for the DAT, and I am taking it on August 24th. I have been studying most of the summer for it, every day, for at least 2-3 hours. The only...

I have gotten pretty good at angles, cube counting, and hole punching. I've been practicing using BC, however TFE and pattern folding have been tough, and I can't figure them out especially pattern folding. Any tips would be great.
I took the DAT today for the first time. A little background on me: I just finished my second year of undergrad and just finished Org1 and 2 this past fall and spring semester. Here's my breakdown:
I'm worried that despite my...

Organic Chemistry 18
Total Science 19...
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.

are there any resources for keyhole practice problems? I've done all the ones in bootcamp and qvault and need more problems to do. I heard crackdat but I can't afford to pay so much when I only need the Keyholes section.
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...
This is my first post to SDN, so hopefully I don't seem too over-ambitious or anything of the sort.
I plan on taking the DAT in the Spring of 2019, but I would like to start reviewing this summer. I know people tend to promote a 3-4-6-8-whatever week studying plan, but I would...
Guys, Ive been doing practice test after practice test and I'm still scoring 16's and 15's on bc for PAT. Im good at angle ranking and I do the hole punching strategy where I put a 4x4 box and go based off the line of symmetry but WHY DO I KEEP SUCKING AT THIS?!? Idk what to do, and my exam is...
I just wanted to get it off my chest that I finally finished this exam after studying for three months. I am overall pleased with my scores (22 BIO, 22 GC, 28 OC, 25 QR, 23 RC, 18 PAT). Below posted are the materials I used and how I used them!
BIO - AB Barron's Bio, Feralis Notes...
Here are my breakdowns:
TS: 22 AA: 22

Anyway - do you think the 18 on QR is okay? Will most schools accept that?
DAT Breakdown below.

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...
Today I took my DAT. I am writing this to give my thoughts on what I did for preparation and what I recommend to others. My scores are listed below.
To start, the best thing I can suggest is to get as much exam practice as possible. You...
Hi, I recently purchased and tried to install the Crack the DAT PAT application, but when I run the program as administrator it gives me "MoveFile failed; code 5."
I have tried disabling my firewall/antivirus when installing, but it still gives me the same error and when I tried troubleshooting...
Well I just took my DAT and got a 22 AA, 21 Total Science, 23 QR, 22 Reading, and 30 PAT. I was honestly surprised I got a perfect score on the PAT. Was just wondering if this section is weighted more or less than the others?
Hi guys, after weeks of struggling with the Angle ranking section and I've been trying to come up with new strategies.
*These may or may not have been already talked about, but here you go in case you've never heard of them*
This only works if the actual DAT has similar problems. (all...
Hello friends, long time lurker here.
I take my DAT in about a week and I've taken 4 individual PAT BC tests this past week and I'm not able to finish any of them. My strategy is to avoid TFE by making sure I do the rest to solid accuracy. I start on Angle-hole punch-cube-pattern-keyhole and IF...
I keep getting an 18 every time i take a Bootcamp PAT test. It's really annoying. Some days im stronger in some subjects, some days im weaker in others. (Keyhole, TFE, and PF hit me hard).
Any advice on how i can get that up to a 22 would be great :D
Exam is in ~3 weeks
I was wondering if anybody knows a systematic way to determine whether two lines have the same length. Would the way you approach this change depending on the angle of the object as well?
As one example, how might I systematically determine if the length of the two platforms are the same...
So I find myself constantly reading old posts and it seems like many people used to agree on the fact that Bootcamp/Destroyer was much harder than the real DAT. However, I have come across recent threads that are actually saying the real DAT was much harder for QR and PAT...
Just another simple question. I was curious how you learned the rules and how to approach PAT questions. I begin studying June 1st so I'm trying to bring everything together! Appreciate any help/tips! Any guys on how to approach/begin looking?
Hi guys, I just took my DATs and I was very sad on my PAT score even though my overall score is considered competitive. I want to go to University at Buffalo, does anyone have similar PAT scores get in?
Their min. is 16 on RC and 15 everything else to be considered. However, they show AA and PAT...
So I have been scrolling through SDN for awhile now and I have seen a lot of breakdowns but I wanna personally ask a few questions?
1.) for someone who has never done ANY PAT questions where should one begin? How should they begin? and is their any guides you thought were most helpful for...
If you're reading this, chances are you're preparing for the DAT! You've got this! I'm writing this a bit late (I took the DAT on July 7, 2016 - lol), but I believe this breakdown will give a bit of insight on how to get a great score. I gave myself a little less than 3 months, and felt...
Hey SDN. I took my DAT earlier today, and I just thought I would share my experience with everyone. I used several posts like this to help me throughout the process. There is honestly nothing more helpful than learning from past test takers.
I studied for a total of 3 weeks (8am-8pm every day...
Hi everyone! Im planning on taking the DAT this coming summer but i will be studying all summer and taking it at the end. I was curious as to what material i should be using? Based on previous standardized exams i'm not the best at english/reading comp. Im currently taking bio 1 now and will be...
