Hello everyone,

I am just getting started with DAT study and noticed alot of names and dates of historical significance in chemistry and wanted to know if these types of questions will come up on the DAT?

I understand I should know these but should I include them in my flashcard making with who created the periodic table at what date etc? Then who added to it and similar bits of information?

I also noticed this will come up alot in biology aswell.

Thanks for the help

-Matthew

I don't mean to hijack your thread but I also have some questions about what could be on the DAT.

I notice in the Kaplan book it has sections on "Animal Behavior" and in the Cliffs AP Biology book it has sections on bio lab.

Do we need to know anything about either of those sections?

go straight to the page 46, you will see what you have to know.

So do the #s they have next to each subject an indication of th questions they will have on that topic, and is it set in stone?

Cell and Molecular Biology (13)
Diversity of Life: Biological Organization and Relationship of Major Taxa (Five-Kingdom System) (3)
Vertebrate Anatomy and Physiology: Structure and Function of Systems (9)
Developmental Biology (4)
Genetics (7)
Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior (4)

Do we need to know the structures of the brains and things like that as well? e.g. medulla oblongata etc

So I am guessing that we don't need to know that information.

Love the extreme hijack of my thread! Seriously why don't people start threads themselves?

Thanks for those that helped out.

I don't think so man, I wouldn't ignore them at all. When it says 13 questions about Cell and Molecular Bio, I think it means around 13. Sometimes it is difficult to classify a question in a class, but I'd say these numbers are close to what you should expect.
