Hi guys,

Have any of you used the DATPAT program to study for the DAT? I want to buy it, but I'd like some opinions about it first.

Please, feel free to share your experience.

Hey Jarry, I personally only used the Kaplan DAT practice sections and found that to be enough so if you want to save money, I would tell you not to buy it.

it is good extra practice, but if you are already good at PAT then just stick with what you have. If you consistently miss 20+ questions out of 90 then i say get it, you could benefit from it.

you mean Crack DAT PAT? For me personally, If I didn't do Crack DAT PAT, I don't think I woulda scored higher than 17. For me it was a must. Kaplan is WAYYYY too simple when it comes to PAT.

I believe datpat.com and crackdatpat.com are 2 different sites. The first one offers 5 full length tests while the latter is just PAT practice. I'm lookin into datpat.com as well and am wondering if anyone has used it. If not that, I've heard good things about the TopScore software.

I got 19 on achiever's first PAT. I heard it was very hard. I got 25 on KBB online tests's PAT.

I am hoping that I would not have to buy the PAT, but what do you guys think? I have always been a very visual person.

I got 14/15 right on achiever's angle ranking and keyhole. But the other parts were very meh.

I think that if you really need the extra help, get crack a dat pat. Some people who are hopeless at the PAT and gets it do much better. So if you are decent with the PAT getting CDP might raise your points by 2-3. If those points are prob worth $200. I got it cause id prob get a 12 without it.
