    Anyone know of any good prep books for the Canadian DAT? I know there is a course offered, but I heard it's a waste of time. Maybe someone can correct me on that. Anyone have any other suggestions? :confused:

    I dont know too much about the prep courses, but I had trouble finding good books to study for the DAT, actually I used the Princton Review MCAT books on Biology and Chemistry. I supplemented the Biology book with a few sections from Barrons DAT book, for some of the extra sections for the DAT.
    Hope that helps.

    Well, I wrote the November Dat last year and did very well. I took the summer Kaplan course and if you do all the practice tests and read and understand the notes, you will ace the DAT.

    Hope this helps.

    Good Luck!

    I also took the Kaplan course last November and also did really well on the DAT and am now in dental school. However, the only value Kaplan gives is the practice tests and the large book of review notes which covers everything you need to know. The classes are useless except for the soap carving ones. Heck I hadn't done a lick of science in 3 years and I scored above 21 on all sections. The real Dat is easier than the practice tests and the right answers are much more clear especially on the PAT section.

    If you would like to purchase my Kaplan review notes book I would be glad to sell it for $25. It really helps and does cover the things you need on the test.
