Did anyone use the online materials for PAT from Kaplan? I'm wondering how hard it is compared to the real DAT. It seems pretty easy for me, so I'm unsure if I'm being overly confident... or if I'm really starting to visualize this stuff now. :laugh:

I've used Kaplan stuff as well, and only "accurate" part of PAT is may be the key-hole section. Other than that, it is waaaaaaaaaaaaay to easy compared to the actual test. Especially the angle section - Kaplan angle section does not represent the actual DAT angle section.

I just took the DATs today..and I also used Kaplan (I took their online class as well). I would say that the Kaplan PAT section was way too easy compared to the actual test......The paper-folding was a LOT harder than expected...On the Kaplan tests, I always spent less than 10 minutes on hole-punching and angle ranking sections (together) and never got any wrong...I would say on the real test I probably missed many of those...

Oh well that makes me nervous. My exam is on Wednesday! :scared: Does anyone know if there's any other (better) practice I can do by then? I've heard Crack DAT is great... but I don't know if I should spend that much when my exam's so close.

CDP is your best resource but since your exam is really close, perhaps practicing on the 2009 ADEA exam is your best bet.
