I took my DAT yesterday and after all the studying its finally done and all the studying paid off.
Here are my scores:

PAT: 18
QR: 29
RC: 26
GenChem: 25
OrgoChem: 25
Bio: 22
TS: 23
AA: 25
:love:

Im so happy it over and here's some advice for studying.
I used the DAT destroyer and its so great for Chem, Orgo and Bio. Some of the Bio questions came verbatim from the DAT destoryer and also the CHem and Orgo on the DAT is so easy if you can do the stuff in the DAT Destroyer. If your having any trouble in Orgo and Chem get the DAT DESTROYER it is really great for all of the natural science sections. Its a really great book and much more detailed and better questions to overprepare you for anything you will see on your actual DAT.
Also, I did the Top Score tests and was only averaging a 21-22 so you can go up from practice tests and I was getting 19-20s on Kaplan tests.
Also DAT Achiever Biology is really good and many bio questions are from there also.
Just know it can be done if you study hard and put in the work.
If you have any questions feel free to post them and Id be happy to answer them.

I would say mostly calculations but you did not have to actually calculate just set up the equation correctly and the choices were the set up equations and no calculations. I had two conceptual questions on Vapor pressure so know what vapor pressure if effected by and also vapor pressure in relation to boiling point and viscosity. My question was something like a low vapor pressure corresponds to what > and the answer was high boiling point.

The QR and the Orgo were MUCH easier than the Kaplan subject tests. I was scoring around a 20-21 on QR Kaplan full legnths and 20-21 in Orgo on Kaplan full legnths. The real DAT is very similar to top score in terms of Orgo and Chem so top score grade is similar to ur DAT score so if u get in the 20's on top score your set fo the DAT. And for QR I found my actual DAT easier than anything I had seen before, only one EASY probability question and mostly simple algebra. Good luck and feel free to ask more questions Id love to helP!

Any of the weird questions were in the Biology section on the DAT and I hadnt seen them in Kaplan but i did see them all in the DAT Destroyer. Some random facts that Kaplan doesnt cover are covered in the DAT Destroyer and also some from DAT Achiever.

i got the dat destroyer from Dr. Romano you can email him to purchase it at [email protected] and its definitely something worth getting for the dat. It has hundreds of questions from each subject so just contact Dr. Romano. Good luck

I just got DAT Destroyer myself, but haven't used it yet. I was a little put off that it was JUST questions/answers with explanations. Maybe I didn't read the website well, but I didn't realize that's what it was when I bought it. After reading your responses, I'm sure it will help with my studies though!

It was strange, the other day Dr. Romano sent out a huge thing of biology questions. I don't know if they were in addition to the book, or just some editing. I wasn't expecting that kind of communication after I purchased the book. I think this is going to be a great prep tool!
