    question for all those who have taken the DAT, have you noticed the obscure questions that have been on the DAT? I can take the practice DAT with 30s all across the board but when it comes to the real test i get questions like:

    1: give the genus and species name for a vascular lycophyte (i know the characteristics, but names??) or 2: what is the atomic emission spectra where n>3 to n=3 (which i found out later was the Paschen series)

    are they running out of questions or trying to make it harder to get into dental school?! -rhetorical question

    what are some of your strange questions?

    Although I don't know the chm question that you posted, I'll def say that the bio one is totally ******ed. I mean knowing what genus and species are and how to write them correctly should be of sole importance. There is no way I am going to remember a scientific name of a plant while I am diligently trying to extract that molar out.

    95% of the bio questions i had were straight up. there were a few questions (three maybe) that were obscure (to me, only haven taken bio I, cell bio, biochem)...i think i nailed two of them thanks to cliffs
