I have been studying for the DAT for almost three months now, my test is on August 1st, and today I took the 2009 DAT. I have always been really good at reading, but on this test, I scored a 39/50...much lower than what I normally get. I also found the quantitative reasoning section to be wayyyy more difficult than the practice tests I've been taking (through DAT Bootcamp). My test is in a few day and this practice test now has me super nervous...any advice?

The 2009 reading section is rediculous, I just took the DAT today, and it is WAY easier than the 2009. Don't sweat it, I got a 30/50 on it and ended up with a 23 for the RC. The QR is slightly easier but seemed for the most part on par.

Don't worry too much about 2009 QR. General consensus is that it is a lot harder. I score 23~30 on bootcamp on QR, and I got 20 on 2009.

2009 is overkill on RC and QR lol. I got like 19/20 on those in 09 and 25 and 23 on the real ones.
