I'm free!

Bio - 20
GC - 20
OC - 25
QR - 17
RC - 20
PAT - 18
TS - 21
AA - 20

QR was killer. Lots of calculations. I had to guess blindly on 5 or 6 because I ran out of time :(

Hey Beastly,

would you mind telling us what some of your practice scores were if you used kaplan, Top Score, or Achiever, etc.

Sure, here are some from kaplan and topscore. I just bought DAT Achiever on Sunday and only did some of the science sections. I also have 2 tests I got from the kaplan blue book but I used the written one as my diagnostic and the 2nd one I did slightly lower than my topscore 1 scores.

Topscore 1
Bio 17
GC 18
OC 19
RC 20
QR 18
PAT 18
TS 18
AA 18

Topscore 2
Bio 16

OC 21
RC 21

I was worrying about the same thing. My highest bio score was a 17 on my first topscore and I got a 20 on the real thing. Good luck on your test!

Great scores,

Can you give a run down of each section; what you thought about each section?

Bio- A lot like topscore and achiever. Questions were nowhere near as tricky though. Pretty straight forward. Had nothing on taxonomy or classification. A little ecology. Other than that it was from kaplan blue book.

GC- Contrary to what everyone here says, I still had a lot of calculations. Used up a lot of my scrap paper. Kaplan is more than enough for this section.

OC- Kaplan is plenty.

RC- I read the questions then look for the answer.

QR- I did fine on the practice tests but there was a hell of a lot of long calculations on the real thing. Had to guess on 5-6 of them but whatever.

PAT- Angles aren't as bad as everyone says. My worst section is the pattern folding. I had about 10 mins left so I reviewed some of the questions.

Beastly,

How was your total sci a 21? 20+20+25 =65. 65/3 = 21.666. Do they not round up? Man, that would really suck.

TS doens't have an average of the 3 science sections. It has its own scaled score.
