Hey All,

Over the past 6 months of studying for my DAT I compiled a 1500 pool of Anki flash cards from the following materials:

DAT Bootcamp

DAT Genius

DAT Destroyer (2015)

Math Destroyer (2016)

Chad's Videos

Kaplan Blue Book

Kaplan Workbook

I'm giving the deck to SDN as my way of paying it forward. I used this deck a million times while studying and it's the main reason I did so well on my DAT - one hour a day kept all the information fresh in my head. Essentially every time there was something that wasn't straight forward to me, I made a flash card. Thanks to this deck, I had no "fuzzy" memories for the DAT: whatever was in this deck, I knew like the back of my hand. I can confidently say that 75% of my DAT was sourced from this deck.

I combed through it carefully to ensure that there were no direct questions taken from any of the above resources. If you see something I missed, please let me know and I will update it immediately! This is not for my profit and I genuinely believe the makers of the materials I used deserve the money. If you've got 1+ months left, I strongly suggest buying all of those materials.

Anki is by FAR the best flash card program you can find. And it's totally free. I loved it so much I quit making paper flash cards and converted 500 paper flash cards into Anki format by hand.



Here's how I suggest you use it:

Obviously, the best way to learn is to make your own flashcards. This deck should be used as a sort of diagnosis test: go through it once (should take one day) and mark any flash cards that you don't have any clue about.

Then, on day 2, start teaching yourself all about whatever it is you've marked.

On day 3, review the marked cards again, and unmark anything you got correct

On day 4, re-review the still-marked cards.

Rinse and repeat until you are familiar with every subject touched upon in this deck. This is NOT going to teach you all the material - that's what the above resources are for. You know that feeling where you're worried that you are missing something incredibly important for the DAT? This deck is here to pacify that feeling. If you're worried there's something huge you're missing, there's a good chance it's in this deck!




I'll keep this deck alive by updating it periodically. For the next year (summer of 2017) I'll update it so that every card has a source where you can learn the material if you want. Also - remember that this was my private deck! It has the occasional slang and funny pneumonic so that I could keep myself entertained :p


Here's a link to the deck

Here's a guide to using Anki


Feel free to ask me any questions! Good luck! If you have tips for making it better please PM me

Thank you soooo much for this! I didn't know this program was so useful. It's more than just simple flashcards! I love it I'm gonna start going through it tonight ;)

Again congrats on your scores

I'm not sure how to do that, but if someone else could that'd be great!

QUESTION.
are your anki notes separated by topic? or are they random in one deck?
About 40% are in specific topics (ex- biology; ecology) but eventually I got tired of all the organizing and lumped them into general topics (bio/qr/etc)

Can you please give me the name of the deck. I already have Anki on my phone. It's easier to download by looking up the name

I can't seem to find the deck:/ what should I actually search for? I have the anki app downloaded...thanks so much!!
I don't think it pops up on the app. Download it onto your computer via the link above, and then sync it to your account :)

So you download it and import it to your pc (Anki is free for Macs and pcs if you google it) and sign up for an account. Then on your phone you'll download the Anki app and it'll sync the flash card deck to the phone. It's free for android but yeah, it's expensive for iPhones. That was a rough realization when I transitioned to iOS :/ but honestly it's mostly useful on your computer so don't feel pressured into getting it on your phone until you try it out on the computer
