Alright here are my scores
PAT 20 88.2 :D
QR: 17 65.6
RC: 22 85.3
Bio: 20 89.5
Chem 20 80.8
orgo: 18 64.1
TS: 20 86.9
AA: 19 76.4

GPA 3.86, Science GPA 3.6
Here's the catch, I have a ton of medical experience, but little dental experience. I mean like 30hrs experience. How much do you think that matters?

All of my studying paid off, I think. Whaddaya think about the scores. I've been studying hard and have foregone shadowing b/c the admissions lady told me DAT, DAT, DAT. Guess i need to shadow now. Plus, I've held off sending off my AADSAS b/c if my score wasn't high enough, i wouldn't apply. Topscore and DAT achiever rock my face off.

The real DAT is easier than both of these preps. Take all the practice tests you can. I'm not a great test-taker, I just busted it. It is a doable test. I studied longer than most people, prob around 4 months, used Achiever, Topscore, Kaplan, and Barrons. Everyone on this site said BArron's was crappy. I liked it-- well worth the $. Campbell's as a reference for Bio helped

Bio-- Nothing mind boggling, standard questions. Ridiculously detailed and broad

Chem-- Not too bad, get good at achiever and Topscore and you'll be golden

Orgo-- Thankfully, not as painful as I expected

PAT--- TopFrontEnd, holepunch, and cubes-- easy. Keyholes were very difficult for me. Angles were tough, but not the beast others had seem to make it out to be

RC---- More difficult than I had anticipated. Lots of detail questions, but more than expected detail + inference questions. Pace yourself, pace yourself, don't get frustrated, stick to gameplan. About halfway through I thought I blew this section

QR-- Honestly I thought this section was easy.. I blew it.
