    Does anyone know the difference between them, they both sound very much similar to me.

    I had another question (didnt want to open another thread for it), but does anyone know how hard the ADA practice test is because I just took it and got phenomenal scores on it (29-bio, 25-Gchem, 28-Organic, 24-QR--Thats the only sections of the test I have), but for some reason I think that test was really easy. I havent taken topscore or DAT achiever test yet but will soon.

    yea, I was surprise too because I am a chem major and I am having hard time with Gchem butnot bio, go figure!
    I have a old bio textbook that I engraved in my brain and schaums bio is really helpful! I look at it like if you can memorize the detail then what will be on the dat will be easy. I guess ppl say dont memorize the details but it works for me!
