Is it true that they are making the DAT harder starting this year?
Are all the test centers not giving out paper anymore?
thanks.

Yep.. no more paper. If you have time, go to a test center and check out what the new pen and board look like. Than, go to a store and buy some laminated paper and dry erase pen and practice with it until your test day.
Good Luck!!!!

any1 know if they are making the questions harder? I heard they are getting rid of old questions because too many people knew them and put in some tougher ones.

jackbauer!

it's a yellow laminated thingy...not a whiteboard.

as for difficulty...i took the exam in August and retook in January. I can say with confidence that the sciences were much more difficult in general (especially bio) the 2nd time around. Not sure if it was just my version of the exam, luck of the draw that i found the questions difficult, etc... but i believe that the exam has been getting harder over time. Take a look at the practice ADA exam...it's a previous exam and it's a freakin joke.

but like another poster said...just study hard and you should break the 20 mark. so trueee

i love the fact they give you a board and markers... bc from pervious experience if you ran out of room it took forever to get another piece of paper. This way you can just erease and start over.

ive heard the questions are getting a little more difficult lately, but basically i think if you study hard and prepare well you will still do fine. i took it in august and got 24 AA and 26 TS, and its because i knew the stuff inside out. i used kaplan and topscore to lay the groundwork and Destroyer to tie up all the loose ends. i think anyone who uses all those resources and really makes sure to know everything inside out will do very well. good luck.
