Hey guys, I am on the final stretch of my DAT studying and I was just wondering how much trig should I try to review for the DAT?

Should I learn the trig graphs? And all that goes with it like amplitude, frequency etc. ?

I guess I should know the identities and obviously be proficient with all of the functions.

So there are a lot of word problems on the DAT, what type of word problems? Why is there no one directing others, even just a little towards what type of word problems to prepare for?

Thanks guys:)
