I am planning on taking DAT in May. I haven't registered yet :sleep:
I am worried that I am not tensed up!! But I guess if you study a little harder things will be fine. Good luck and let us know how it went??

If you study properly..and smartly, and don't let your nerves get the better of you then odds are you will definitely pull 18 or higher on all sections. Only 3 things can kill you on the DAT's..lack of a proper study schedule, poor time management and allowing yourself to panic. You dont have to be a genius to score a 20+ academic average..far from it.

Hey man I scored really low like 50% on the KAPLAN practice tests then got a 23 on the real deal.

So I fail to see how they relate to the real DAT myself.

I mean, check out the biology section. Dont you think that Kaplan is outrageously difficult? I know that I never got over a 55 on any of their bio tests.

Just my thoughts on the whole deal.

Use rule of 3. That's is, if you score 16-17 on practice, you will score 19-20 on the real one. It only works for kaplan. If your practice exam is Topscore, then what you see if what you get on the real one.

I don't know about that. I got a 15 on the TS section of Topscore and on the real thing I got an 18.
