    So the countdown is almost over. I have 48 hours until my DAT. I dont know the best way to spend these last 2 days. I do not want to get myself stressed about the things I dont know either.

    What do you all recommend doing for the last couple of days?

    last 24 hours, relax, give yourself a mental break. get your things in order. Ids, snack, gas for car etc.

    if you absolutely must do something, do something light. like draw out unit circle or something.

    My test is tomorrow and I am going against the conventional wisdom of not doing anything the day before the test. I will let you know how it works out but I am reviewing Cliffs AP bio today AND doing topscore 3. Everyone works differently but I have to be doing something knowing that my test is tom afternoon.

    thats the smartest thing to do! one guy on here tommyVA got a 22 or 23 and he prepped nicely the day before. no marathon runner takes a day off, you still need to prepare and go HARD ! good luck patel!

    Just took the sciences of topscore 3.

    Bio/Gchem/Org
    19/20/25

    Some of the bio were really specific and minute details. The questions I missed in gen chem, I just had no idea.

    Light review today. Complete relaxation tomorrow. Getting laid helps too, just don't go all night.

    My test is day after tommorrow. I am also going to cram every random bio information I come across, revisit every section of DAT destroyer and Math destroyer, and do extra practice. The bio section is sooo broad. the more you study for biology, the more you realize that there is less you know and you need to study even more. a little frustrating. I've decided to just cover what i can and forget about the rest of it.
