    This is pretty surprising to me... So I have to pay 415 bucks to apply to get the eligibility code and I cant find out when the tests are available in my state?....

    I am planning to take the test in Jan/Feb next year.. Can I still apply now?

    You can go to https://www.prometric.com/

    Hit Locate Test Center

    Follow the on screen instructions, after you select your testing center, it will show you available dates to write the test.

    As long as there is space in the Prometric center, you can take the DAT almost any day of the year at multiple times of the day! Schedule far enough in advance and you'll have your pick :)

    Thank you.
    Do you think it's a bad idea to buy destroyer 2015 version if I am planning to take it in 2016?

    I think they add new problems every year. Buy it about a month before you plan to use it

    Thank you for the response. Do you know when they usually release the new version?
