    damn I wish someone was selling used audio learn tapes....they seem really useful, but $100 for tapes! Has anyone here used the flashcards? They seem like they could be helpful on the subway.

    The tapes were by no means comprehensive of the material you should know. The biology section was OK. I didn't find the chemistry very useful. I think chemistry is not something you can learn from an audio tape. If you have a hundred bucks to blow I guess it's worth buying especially if you're spending a couple hours a day commuting. I used the Kaplan book and the audio tapes although I didn't score very well. Wish I would have spent more time taking practice tests. I felt like I knew the material pretty well but I totally choked on the exam. Hope to retake it in a month.

    I used the flashcards and they are helpful. I use them when I am using the stairmater at the gym....so it makes the hour go by quick and I don't feel bad for wasting study time at the gym.

    I have the DAT tapes and they are okay. They really help you skim the topics. If you have done a good job studying (detailed) then these tapes will really help you remember stuff you learned. I think I'm going to listen to them a couple days before my dat or maybe the day of just to remember stuff.

    There are only three tapes. Not worth a 100 bucks, but remember when you see, hear, and learn then you will not forget the information.

    Thats why I invested in video tapes as well.
