    Hey guys just wanted to share my scores and a little about my test experience. I want to give a big shoutout to the DAT groupchat for the big amount of support they gave me throughout my studying as well as SDN for the wealth of knowledge this community offers to DAT takers.

    I studied for about half a month over summer of 2016 but was also taking 10 credits of science courses during the summer semester so eventually decided my August test date wasn't going to be my best effort and rescheduled it for January. I quickly reviewed chads videos and my biology notes throughout out December and started destroyer and practice tests up in January.

    Materials I used:

    DAT Bootcamp 10/10 Had to pay for this twice so I guess I like it haha
    -- (I would have liked if they updated the practice tests to include the cross out function available on the real test as I found it very useful)
    DAT Destroyer 10/10
    - The usual, contains all the concepts you need to practice and allows you to find your weaknesses
    DAT Genius 9/10
    - Did all 5 science tests and PAT and thought it was a great resource especially for their PAT explanations
    DATQvault 8/10
    -would only suggest getting the bio
    Feralis notes
    Cliffs AP Bio
    Chad's videos

    Scores:
    AA: 23
    TS: 26
    Biology: 26
    Gen Chem: 27
    Organic: 25
    PAT: 20
    RC: 22
    QR: 17

    Killer scores! If that QR was higher, your AA would jump dramatically.

    WOW! Very great scores, I'm happy for you. As far as getting into dental school goes, you should be pretty solid. A 23AA is in the 98% percentile ;). The 26TS is impressive.
