1 week? Definitely Crack DAT PAT. Do as many tests as you can, maybe 1-2 a day.

ever hear of top score? does that help> what is crack dat actually? does it help a ton, or would practice tests in general covering every subject be better? What about re-reading the kaplan book and doing Destroyer questions? Would this be just as beneficial?

If you're talking about PAT specifically, Crack DAT PAT is the way to go. It is basically a set of full-length PAT tests that are similar to the real test. With one week left, there isn't much you can do to prepare for every single part of the PAT... you might as well just take practice tests to get used to the type of questions that you will encounter. As for the rest of the test, such as the sciences, destroyer and topscore are some good resources. Topscore Pro is a set of 3 full-length tests that are good in gauging how well you will do in the sciences; however, you would want to do these way ahead of your test date to find your weaknesses and improve on them. Going over what you don't understand and reviewing what you have learned so far may be beneficial... maybe others can comment on what they did in the last week?

Maybe you just postpone the exam a couple of weeks and study a little more thoroughly? It's just 25 bucks anyways.

Well I thoguht about postponing it, which I might do, but i really just want to get it over with if you know what I mean. Anyone know about the money back guarantee from crackPAT? If someone does could they explain more about it? Does the unlmited part mean that it never expires? The website doesn't really explain any of this or if there is any fine print in order to get your money back or about expiration.

Thanks in advance.

I just started studying for the DAT and I have been doing only PAT for the last 5 days on CDP only. I took the 4th test on cdp yesterday for the first time and scored a 20, not bad. The program is really beneficial and if you use it in conjunction with these forums for help on how to tackle each question type, you might have shot. Start off by doing the first test, section by section, until you understand why each answer is right or wrong. Once you have done that, try the whole test and force yourself to work through ech question even if you know the answers already. Then take the second test, the whole thing at once and see how you do. Review your test and understand the correct answer for each question and then retake the test. Do this for each test afterwards and if you notice that you have difficulty with one section in particular then you can go back and practice on earlier tests giving yourself 10min to complete that section. Make sure you research the best methods for completing each section, this will help immensely. Good Luck. Don't bother asking anymore questions about CDP, just buy it. It will be the difference between having a shot at DAT PAT and not.

Hey guys, just one last question. Is internet necessary to use the Crack software? I can't connect my laptop through my wired connection for some reason, and I really don't want to buy it through my neighbor's wireless for security reasons...So I'm hoping that if I do have to use my neighbor's wireless it's just for a quick purchase type thing and then I will be able to use the software on my computer without having an internet connection, does anyone know if this is possible? IF internet IS required the program will be of little use to me.


Thanks in advance!
