Well folks, my plan is to take the DAT first week of august this year. I need to get a 20AA/18PAT and thats it because I'm in a 3/4 program. I am signed up for a kaplan course that runs late june through early august, I'll be cutting out the last few classes because I need to take it a little earlier. I also have the kaplan blue book, though the material in that seems to be identical to the material book they sent me for the course. Can anyone elaborate on that? I have also just ordered the topscore tests. So basically I have about 4-5 weeks before the course starts. I am working 3-4 days a week at nights. I don't know yet but I'm guessing I'll have the most trouble with the PAT score. How do people recommend I go about starting this studying? My plan is to just start going through the blue book right now. I have heard that if you know everything in the blue book you can pull a good score, but the bio is weak, just too much of an overview. I'll take Kaplan's diagnostic soon after I start studying so I have some idea of what the questions are like.
