My DAT is scheduled for august 26th and my scores don't show I am ready. I signed up for the live kaplan classes and those were a complete waste, but the resources that came along with it haven't been too bad. Basically the first 6 weeks I only studied out of the kaplan blue book and I just took a full length exam they offer and scored horribly. These are the scores I received: Bio-14 GC-14 OC-18 TS-15 PA-16 RC-16 QR-13 AA-15. Yes i know these scores are crap and I blame myself for not using more resources. I started using Chad's videos a couple of days ago and I just bought DAT bootcamp so that I have more test to take. The problem is with a little over 2 weeks left, i am not sure how I can take all of these test, finish chad's videos and study the notes I have taken. I can't postpone the exam either because I am leaving on a trip a couple of days after and by the time I get back it will almost be time to go back to school. I have been studying 12 hours a day the past week because I am starting to stress over my scores not improving. I have read Kaplan makes their exams harder but that hasn't made me feel any better about my scores. I want to know what you guys would do in this position? how would you balance studying, taking practice exams and watching videos for the last couple of weeks. I want to take all the practice exams so I am ready as possible but I also want to take them knowing I am prepared and not just taking them to see how the are. Without buying any more resources what would you guys recommend?
