LOW Scoring PAT Frustrating on DAT Achiever

    My real dat is in less than a week and on DAT Achiever I have been getting 15s and 16s on the PAT section. Are those accurate assesments of the read dat. Or is the real dat pat harder or easier. I do some kaplan pat and those seem a lot easier than dat achiever as did the barrons especially in top front end. Some of them in dat achiever though i'm like "Wow I would have never saw this" I don't know what to do or what to think of this!!

      Take your Kaplan PAT score, and subtract 2 to 3 points on it. This will be your PAT score on the real thing.

      You mean add 2 or 3 points to it? Most people do better on the real exam than on practice exams.
