    If so did you get to touch the screen for PAT?

    Well I guess I'm going to be as ready as I can be. I took my first DAT achiever today and got:
    PAT 16
    OCHEM 16
    CHEM 15
    Bio 15
    RC 17
    QR 14

    So these are my scores and I'm taking mine in two weeks..let's see what I can cram from now on...

    I took mine in Anahiem and was able to touch the screen. Maybe call and ask?? The testing center was really relaxed.

    Good luck to all you guys.

    I am pretty sure it is considered illegal to touch the screen...this is what I have been told...odds are you wouldn't get caught by prometric, but you are video taped and someone else could be anal about it...

    I feel that if you have a conscience, which all future dentists should possess, then you wouldn't result to cheating on the PAT- the best thing that will happen is what, about 2 more points but the worst thing that could happen is getting penalized for cheating and maybe not be able to move on to dental school at all...I guess you all can be the judge.
