Hiiiiii, I recently created this account to share my story.
I used the DAT Destroyer and Math Destroyer. I did the DAT destroyer 4 times and the Math Destroyer 2 times! Those books were so thorough and I would recommend them to anyone! If anyone has any other questions please let me know! I am beyond thrilled with my scores, and I am so happy I chose to use the Destroyer books!!!!! :D

I also did the old 2007 and 2009 ADA exams after I did the dat and math destroyer. And I used CrackDAT for studying for the PAT. As for the reading section, I just read a few science articles a day. Also I used topscore exams to make sure timing was not an issue. And I found the exams easier than the real thing.

My breakdown was:
PAT: 21
QR: 25
RC: 23
Bio: 24
Gen Chem: 30
Orgo: 30

TS: 27
AA: 26

And I attached my unofficial score report for all to see as well.

I did all the Bio questions in the destroyer. I looked at all the wrong answers and the explanations in the back, and I learned all that information. I also read the Cliffs 3rd edition bio book to brush up on topics I thought I was having trouble with.

There were no "surprising" questions per say but the questions can be about ANYTHING. That's the scary part and that's why the more you know the safer off you are on that section.

You did a really amazing job congrats. And as far as gen chem goes, can you give any tips on what you saw that should be focused on , also any electricity questions? and for bio did you get any plants ?

Thank you!! For gen Chem I stuck to the destroyer. I felt like I knew every question. I didn't get any electricity question but I'm sure it's possible. For plants there wasn't anything too specific about plants just the general angiosperm gymnosperm stuff which I knew from the destroyer too.

If got something wrong on the 2007 test I pounded that concept into my head. I didn't get any wrong in orgo on that practice test. In terms of the rest of the sections I did better on the actual exam. I don't have any exam scores/numbers for you because I didn't calculate that but I got 2 wrong in gen Chem and I think 6 wrong I'm bio.

:claps::claps::claps::claps::claps:Wow!!!

Congratulations!!! You are in the top percentile of students who have taken the DAT. Double 30's is very rare indeed. I agree with Axiomatician, Harvard will welcome you with open arms and any school for that matter.

Thank you for the shout out and your study plan..

Wishing you the best..

Dr. Romano and Nancy
