I had to do math as well.Much easier. Little bit of luck required for your article to be interesting, but other than that all 3 of my articles were simple and questions were straightforward. I had a handful of reading questions that required me to do math though
ya I had similar questions. " something need to be checked every 2 months" and in the question they were asking annuallyIt was math that was made just to check if you really did read the article. So the article might say "the birds flew in flocks of 100 every week" and the question would ask you how many birds would fly in 10 weeks
The reading on the DAT is not hard if you go in prepared. There are many styles of reading passages that can be presented and S & D does not always work. Some passages can be inference based type questions. The best suggestion I can give if you have time time is just to read every day. The focus should be on increasing speed and comprehension. If you can read and comprehend at a decent pace it will not matter what is presented. IMO doing a few reading passages is just not enough to accomplish this unless you are already a strong reader to begin with.Hi all,
I wanted to know how everyone felt about their RC of DAT? I've been practicing using Bootcamp and I'm getting like 19~21.. and can't seem to get any higher from there.
Idk if it's the fact that English is my second language (since I was 15) or if Bootcamp material is harder than actual DAT... I took another practice on BC yesterday and there was this article I just couldn't focus/understand well and I was in a full panic-mode. I so worried that I might panic when I actually take it next month.
Yeah they're definitely shorter than BC. You're lucky with the 100% S+D !! Lol who am I kidding 80%+ S+D is still pretty nice which is what I got. Everyone gets different RCs. Mine was fairly interesting as well lol.As orgoman would say, there are many different versions of the exam, so take what I saw with a great of salt!
however, personally, my DAT RC was nothing like the bootcamp. My first and last passages were super interesting, and 100% search and destroy lol. My second passage was kind of stupid not going to lie, but I just guessed on those questions to secure marks on the easier passages.
Pretty sure my articles were shorter than bootcamp, and questions went in order.
