    I'm not sure if I should buy it or not. I tried orgo and bio so far and I'm not sure if it's worth it to actually buy the package. What do you guys think?

    I upgraded and would definitely recommend it. The PAT, Bio and RC explanations are really good. I'm using genius with BC, Destroyer and Chad's and feel like I'm learning a lot through application through answering questions, rather than just studying, just my 2 cents though. I'm think about qvault for bio as well.

    I only used the free trial, but I thought some portions were helpful. I thought DATGenius's PAT was more representative of the real thing than Bootcamp overall. Genius doesn't get too crazy with proportions for keyholes and angle ranking is easier than Bootcamp, more similar to the real DAT in terms of difficulty. The lengthy explanations for PAT also seemed helpful if you are having trouble with a specific section.

    For Bio and Chem, I personally wasn't a fan of the extremely long explanations but they do provide lots of good information.

    Is the bio section in DATgenius comparable to the real one? Or are there still "random questions" even after going through destroyer, bootcamp, datgenius, random bio websites from different universities and khan academy videos :O

    For those that purchased DATGenius and wrote the DAT, do you feel it is representative of the material tested?

    thanks.

    August 31st here! I'll be suffering the longest of our week... On the bright side, I'm sure I'll have some great breakdowns to read from you guys right before I take my DAT! Let's kill this, simultaneously!
