hey folks, I have taken the DAT back in June and scored a tad low in bio/ochem (was still in those classes...so prepping was tough). At that time I did well on bootcamp test 20's across the board but bio/ochem like 18's

I now am using Genius, its harder but I am scoring in the 20's every where.
1/ 2/ 3/ 4/ 5
Bio 19/19/19/19/20
Ch 20/20/20/21/20
OC 20/21/20/19/21
PAT 23/22/24
RC 20/20/19
M 20/19

bootcamp 1-free
24/ 20/ 23
bio/ Ch/ OC

HAVE any of you used genius then taken the dat, how do these scores compare? Do you agree genius is harder than bootcamp. ps, I love the explanation in genius, really really helpful!!

true.

We won't really know though until we take our DATs. I think ultimately it depends on how hard our version of the DAT is (fingers crossed)

Sorry for a second reply.... I get killed in BC Keyholes and Angles which I think lowers that score a lot. I think DG's TFE is harder.

Dat genius scores: Ochem: 1st test 22 , 2nd test 22, 3rd test 24
Bio: 1st test 22, 2nd test 22, 3rd test 23

I didn't take the rest of the tests since I didn't find it helping me as much. It was more of a diagnostic and tool to show weaknesses. I used Genius instead to help me on PAT and shifted sciences towards the DAT destroyer which helped speed the learning process than either Bootcamp or DAT genius did.

Actual DAT scores on OChem 24 and Bio 22.
Ochem lab questions got me on the actual test. I thought Bootcamp and Genius were pretty similar in terms of difficulty my scores were almost the same on both.

How Did you feel genchem was in comparison?

DAT genius was very time consuming I either ran out of time or almost when I took their tests. I did so many calculations on Dat genius. The real test was the exact opposite I had plenty of time this section took me the least amount of time and almost all questions were conceptual except one question which was a calculation ( i was able to do the math in my head). I didn't think it was very representative not even close.

Were the labs just really hard for Ochem or did you not expect them?

PS: Awesome scores!!

That's good to hear. Would you say Chad+destroyer goes deep enough for gc conceptual?

No I think they were more simple than I made them out to be I just overlooked them probably or rushed it.

And THANKS!

Yeah I have been using DAT genius along with BC and I like it too. I didn't use their PAT and QR. I used all of their RC and some of their sciences and they are great. I recommend using DAT genius along with BC if you need additional practice.
