    I just finished my first DAT Achiever test. I know I'm still struggling but has anybody received similar scores and then gone on to do well on the real thing? Here's the results:

    Bio 15
    Chem 15
    Orgo 15
    Total Science 15
    PAT 15
    RC 20
    QR 19
    AA 17

    jus let me tell u that first exam was crucially hard...
    I got a 14 on the PAt when the lowest score I got on kaplan was a 20 ...but i just too kthe 2nd test and i got a 17 which is more like it for dat achiever...my goal for the next one is 20...on the first one i couldnt even finish it ...worse ...i was on cube counting number 2 when time was done..so dont worry..its just taht that pat is SOOOOOOOO much harder than any other exams .. key is to keep reviewing the answers and use the 3d technology they provide and learn to see it like tha on the next exam...GluCk to u!

    DAT is in about 10 days now. And by the way, my second achiever test scores were even lower. I don't know what the hell is going to happen.

    they get harder and harder....like test 3 will def be harder than one and two. you have to remember that achiever is harder than the real thing... dont panic.. just keep studying til ur test day.

    I just took my 1st Achiever test today, as well.
    AA-18, TS-17, Bio-17, OC-16, GC-17, PAT-18, RC-23, QT-17

    I dont let the scores discourage OR encourage me on how I will actually perform... because you know what - YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN.

    I met get 40 biology questions that I will know NOTHING about... but you might know the answer to every one. Sometimes, it just works out that way.

    Dont let other peoples' practice scores place you in any kind of group/category... because scores on Achiever, TopScore, etc. do not prove anything. They are just practice. So just keep the eye on the prize and don't let practice numbers distract you from your real goal = feeling confident and ready to take the real thing! :D

    Good luck! :luck:
