    I do not have a science background. In fact I was a crappy science student in high school, did a degree in law in Australia and 11 years after high school decided I wanted to do dentistry. So I have spent the last 2 years doing pre-reqs in Science (c/sgpa 3.96)

    My materials:
    DAT bootcamp x 2
    DAT destroyer x 2.5
    QVault x 1
    Chads videos
    Cliffs x 1 and referred random chapters
    Ferelli's x 2
    CDP x 1 (finished only 50%)


    I started with DAT Destroyer, and then the first attempt at bootcamp
    DAT Bootcamp scores
    first time (June - July )
    Subject : Test 3 / 4 / 5 (did not record exam 1 and 2 )
    Bio: 14 / 16 / 20
    GC: 17 / 18 / 16
    OC: 18 / 20 / 20
    PAT: 17 / 17 / 18
    QR: 18 / 15 / 17
    Reading : 18 / 15 / 17

    Quite disenchanted with my scores, I then worked on all 10 Qvault tests, and then sat for the 2009 exam online. I think I got scores between 18 - 19

    Then I realized I wasn't happy, so i delayed my exam in 2 weeks and did DAT destroyer again, then repeated DAT bootcamp:

    second time (Aug)
    Subject : test 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
    Bio: 20 / 18 / 19 / 25 / 23
    GC: 18 / 17 / 22 / 22 / 19
    OChem: 18 / 21 / 21 / 24 / 23
    PAT : x / 19 / 19 / 18 / X
    QR : x / 17 / 20 / 21 / x

    Overall I would say DAT destroyer and bootcamp were my best resources.

    Wow, Congratulations!:):clap:

    What a journey and complete career change. It took a lot of hard work and dedication to get your scores. Dental schools will take notice of your high GPA and outstanding DAT scores. You will have no trouble getting interviews . I am glad you found the DAT Destroyer helpful as part of your DAT study tools.

    Wishing you the best on your journey to becoming a dentist.

    I would say DAT is easier than bootcamp.

    I studied for bio mainly using youtube videos, Qvault, Ferali's notes (found it confusing for me), Cliffs AP

    The reason I am marked as a medical student is this is my husband's account. Med student days for him was LONG time ago. He actually just finished super fellowship and is joining practice next month!

    thanks! Did you feel the purchase of Qvault for biology was worth it? I've been debating on it lol
