Hi everyone! I’ve been a longtimeeee lurker on sdn but never posted anything until now. Advice from everyone on here has helped me a lot during this process, so I decided to post a breakdown too! Here are my scores: PAT: 21 QR: 22 RC: 30 BIO: 21 GC: 26 OC: 23 TS: 23 AA: 24 A little about me: I’m a junior in college applying in June. I didn’t really wanna take the DAT in the summer so I decided that studying fall semester lightly and then hardcore studying over winter break was right for me. This doesn’t work for everyone—the holidays were really stressful! I started the Kaplan course in October and finished it the second week of January. I used this course to keep me on track studying through my semester, but if I had chosen to take the DAT over the summer, I would not have used Kaplan. Other resources are better for way less $. I went into winter break, a month out from the DAT, averaging about 19 AA on Kaplan. PAT (Crack DAT PAT, Bootcamp, Achiever): I was really worried about this section. I didn’t even use Kaplan much for it because it’s not that representative. With CDP, it took me a while to catch on.. I think I took like 6 tests before I consistently scored in the 20s. I then moved to Bootcamp, which was way harder, but showed me that you should NOT count lines on top front end. Bootcamp is great for PAT! I bought Achiever a week before the exam (confidence booster right?? Not) and got 17/20/17 on 3 PAT tests. Achiever was way harder than the test but built up my skills. But I still think CDP is the most representative; I averaged 21 on CDP and 18/19 on Bootcamp. BIO (Kaplan, Destroyer, Bootcamp, Feralis, Cliffs AP, Barrons AP): So random! And I’m a Bio major haha. My advice is to make sure you consistently get 20s in Bio tests (Bootcamp is great, destroyer is overkill) and focus more time on more predictable sections like chem. GC (Chad’s, Destroyer, Bootcamp, Kaplan): Kaplan is not representative of GC. I always got 18s or 19s on Kaplan because a calculator is necessary for their questions. I did all of destroyer once, but really you could just do Chad’s. Chad is a GOLDMINE. OC (Chad’s, Destroyer, Bootcamp, Kaplan): Same as above although Kaplan was decent for OC. Use Chad’s! RC (Kaplan): I only did Kaplan reading sections when I took their full length tests. I knew this would be a booster for me so I focused my time elsewhere. My strategy was a modified Kaplan strategy: speed-read the passage and write down the key words for each paragraph. Word looks weird/important? Just write it down. I had a lot of tone/inference.. I don’t see how search and destroy would go that well. Note that I read/mapped the passage in 5 minutes. QR (QR section of Destroyer, Bootcamp, Kaplan): I never bought Math destroyer because I knew I would do ok and wanted to focus elsewhere, but using Bootcamp 2 weeks before the test helped my speed (24, 20, 21 on the 3 I took). I consistently got 22s on Kaplan math. Additionally: I did Topscore science sections and I know the week of my test for test three I got 21 bio, 21 gc, 18 oc. 25 AA on the Kaplan final (mysteriously easier than all other tests). Achiever science sections: 19 bio 19 gc 25 oc on test one, 17 bio 18 gc 18 oc on test two. And Bootcamp: averaged 21 on bio, ~24 on gc, and 20 on oc. Sorry this is so long! Please ask me anything!
