    I have scheduled my DAT today. It'll be on May 16. I figure I can spend this semester studying along with my classes, shadowing, and working, and have 2 weeks after exams to study only for the DAT, before summer semester starts.

    My only suggestion is to use whats left of the winter break to make flash cards out of barons/cliffs. Unlike the other DAT subjects, biology needs some time to sink in.

    Well, my semester started yesterday. I've got orgo 2, cell bio, philosophy, and stats. IMO, pretty doable - I was considering adding A&P, but decided against because I am going to be studying for DAT throughout the semester.

    That's a day after my birthday! Now that I've made this connection, I'll most likely remember it once it rolls around. I'll send happy thoughts your way come May 16th. :D

    Good luck!

    Can I ask how you plan to study for DAT during the semester? How many hours a night? Week? Will you be following a schedule?

    I am in the same boat. Work full-time, org. 1 and bio 2, DAT scheduled for May 30. So I will be trying to juggle DAT prep with 2 courses this semester. On top of work.

    I really like an 8 week DAT study plan I found on here, but I would be expanding it to 3 months because of my other responsibilities.

    Just wondering if you had a plan? Thanks

    Builder--just to help, I'd suggest looking at the breakdown collection in my signature. Through those breakdowns, you can see all sorts of ways that people attacked studying for the DAT. :)

    Keeping a specific schedule? No - not with the time constraints that vary daily. But my goal is to spend 2-3 hours/day with 1 day off a week studying. As of now, I am doing a chapter a day of Cliffs bio, and the Princeton Review DAT book (why does no one ever mention this book? So far, I find it to be a pretty decent resource). This is on top if work, kids, and school (14 cr this semester). Mind you, this is only the 2nd week I have been doing this, but I've been hitting my goal, so just got to keep strong.

    Also, I ordered DAT destroyer, Math Destroyer, organic odyssey, and purchased the bootcamp subscription. When I get further along, I will buy the achiever subscription.
