Hello SDN.

My DAT is in 2 days! My BC scores and 2009 DAT scores are below:

(Bio/GC/OC/RC/QR/PAT)
Bootcamp 1- (19/22/19/<15/20/18)
Bootcamp 2- (17/21/20/17/20/20)
Bootcamp 3- (19/26/21/21/22/21)
Bootcamp 4- (20/21/22/21/24/19)
Bootcamp 5- (18/20/17/-/-/-) Stressed on that day, didn't manage to finish OC.
Average: Bio- 18, GC- 22, OC- 20

Bio 6-10 Individual Tests- (28-30/40), all score of 20s
Ochem 6- 21

2009 ADA DAT-
I thought 2009 DAT is one of the best indicators to test whether I'm ready or not, but the test questions had a lot of errors...
Bio- 22 (35/40)
GC- 26 (29/30)
OC- 19 (23/30) So many weird questions and errors in this section..
PAT- 22 (80/90) So much easier than the bootcamp questions! Especially the keyholes and TFE.
RC- 21 So much easier than the bootcamp passages.
QR- 20 So different from the bootcamp. Have a couple of very difficult questions. Would the real DAT be more like bootcamp QR or the 2009 QR?

So what do you guys think? Am I ready or not? Very stressed right now >_<.

Dat 2009/2007 QR section is out dated. Very little trig/geometry on the real thing. Also conversions are gone. Several new types of questions that are not on the 09/07 tests. Also bio questions changed slightly so just be aware of that.

What do you mean bio questions changed slightly?

If you read the news letter on the dat/oat page it says the questions changed slightly. More about the interaction of systems now.

Advice? Keep doing what you're doing. 2009 scores are solid imo.
