Hi. I will most likely start studying for the DAT today. Is anyone in the same boat? Want to join my club? We can be SDN 5/21 start buddies. :thumbup:

so what do we do then?
yes!!! we have officially formed a gang.

uhh.. so we just support and encourage one another and make sure we stay on track.

for example me.... I still haven't opened the book yet, but have been looking at schools. I should prob open the materials soon. And I encourange you all to keep studying or start now, b/c starting slow like me is bad. :laugh:

Since we are starting today and most likely all will test in aug. thats a 2-3month window. meaning we can't slack. I have high hopes that our 5/21 group is going to kick *** on the DAT.

Hi everyone,
I'm also studying for the DAT right now. But just a quick question. Sorry if it has no relation to this thread, but I read that some of you guys are going to take the DAT in August. Does that mean that you'll be applying to dental school this year or next year? I'm planning to take DAT mid June and apply this year. Is that bad? Would it be wiser to take DAT in Aug and apply next year? Please help, I'm so stressed =/. Thanks everyone and good luck on your studying!

plan on taking the DAT (2nd time) in late July. IMO, it would be better to start studying all the subjects at the same time. But for me, I decide to study G Chem a week then move on to O Chem and so on...what about YOU?

Count me in too! I very briefly looked over general chemistry (my worst subject) during the semester, and plan on taking the DAT the second week of July. May have to push it back depending on how I feel by then.

DAT destroyer is made by "Orgoman" so I suppose it is good for Orgo. I find the Gen Chem manageable, but is the Bio the same difficulty as the real DAT?

This is what I have in my cerebral cortex. If order matters, you use permutations, if order doesn't matter you use combinations.

Are your motor neurons innervated by the autosomal or somatic system? lol-side effects of DAT prep!

I started this week too! I'm in! But I'm not applying until next May/June. I'm going on Semester at Sea next semester, so I'm taking the DAT in August before I leave. Then it's around the world, come back and apply! I'm studying my boo-tay off until August.

OMG - I have a small rant only you guys will appreciate - I got called to JURY DUTY the week before I'm taking the DAT! UGH! I'm working on moving it but like I said I'm leaving for SAS and you can only postpone for 3 months, so there's no great time for me to do it. OMG, Ugh.

But regardless of that - I'm studying! Thanks for the support group!

Oh - and about the working + studying - I'm a nanny to a 3 month old so every nap he takes I hit the books + I study every moment I'm not with him. I'll let you know how it goes. : )

Lots of 20+ Magic DAT Dust to everyone!!

Wow!!! I never expected the 5/21 group to be so large and amazing! :thumbup:

Everyone one on here is doing so well. Memorial weekend has really halted me. I have had a problem starting up the last few days, it been a big lost and frustration.

How are you all studying and staying so focused? I don't have ADD or ADHD or anything else, it's just hard to stop a slacking habbit. Help? Advice?
