How similar are the DAT bootcamp QR tests to the 2017 DAT?

I am doing the new comparison questions on DAT bootcamp and am struggling to understand them.

I also am struggling with my timing for the PAT section so if anyone has ANY suggestions/recommendations for what I should do for that, that would be great. The longest sections are the keyholes and TFE and then by the time I get to hole punching, I only have about 15 minutes left to complete the last 3 sections :nailbiting:

I recommend skipping those sections until the end. This way, you are getting the points from the easier sections for sure. Keep practicing!
There are many variations of the DAT, so your exam might be easier than Bootcamp or it could be harder. Just prepare as much as possible. Good luck.

I was struggling with time on PAT too, but I started timing myself on the bootcamp generators for 15 questions on each section every day and eventually I was able to figure out a pretty decent breakdown of the 60 minutes that works for me. Once I figured out how much time I can afford to spend on each section, I've been practicing doing 15 questions as often as I can in that amount of time.
