    Hey guys, Thank you for helping me out with Questions:

    Here are my scores:
    Bio-22
    Gchem-20
    Org.-19
    RC - 17 :scared:
    Math - 18
    PAT - 20
    TS - 21
    AA - 19

    So, Here it is!

    I know its not what I expected at all!! I am definately taking it again!

    Bio: Very Very Hard, but I studied for it like a mad man! So, I deserved this grade! There is alot of out there questions that I knew a little about! I also had the same test as some other ppl that posted on here! (about the picture)!

    Gchem: Not as bad, just a little conceptual based. I had some weird questions in here too! But I thought I did better than 20.

    Organic: Pretty easy, I guess I porobably didnt read the questions right or something!

    PAT: I studied pretty good for this, I thought I did whole lot better than 2o, it was way easier than what I expected it to be. Just need to be carefully and look at each twice!

    RC - I dont know what happened, I guess I wasnt expecting soo many inferring questions! Just a heads up, none of the practice tests do justice for this part. It was way harder, I just need to focus on this and figure out a technique for the next time!

    Math: Alot of word problems! Just need to work on the timing.

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!

    those are pretty solid scores. i dont think you need to retake. it is better get your complete application in early than to retake the DAT to boost one score.

    I want to get 22s across the board, I guess the test took me by surprise, I wasnt expecting it to be this hard!! (just an advice, Topscore and DAT Achiever dont do justice for bio, RC and QR)

    That 17, is an eyesore for me!!!

    Well, for bio, I studied everything in the book, you can ask anyone, I knew my bio, but still some question that I have never seen in my life or heard of those kinds of words in a sentence :laugh: .

    RC--NEED HELP:confused:

    PAT--just the usual

    QR -- I dont know what to study for in this section, maybe a algebra textbook or something!

    I totally agree with you about the Topscore and the Achiever being not applicable to real DAT any more on the bio and the RC section.

    I got 20 on bio, 22 on gchem, 19 on ochem and ended up with 20 TS.

    Agreed re: reading comp. I was averaging 24-26 on Achiever, TopScore, Kaplan, etc. I finished the actual DAT with a 20. None of the practice tests are effective preparation for this section.

    that is the spirit... good scores tho. but if you are determined to re-take it. i support you all the way... (cuz i would too... not that your scores are bad... just that my GPA needs that 95+ percentile score. :))

    When are you planning to re-take it?

    I got a 17 on the RC too...it sucks. Just don't apply to Case, they value the RC the most...
    good job on the PAT :thumbup: (hardest section)

    Thank you!! I am taking it again because of that dumb section. I bought few books for RC section this time around. I basically took Rc for granted, I should not have done that!!

    Oh well, I guess 3 more months of fun!! Wouldnt trade studying for DATs for anything!! :)bullcrap: ) :laugh:
