If you prepared for the MCAT, then you would spend less time studying for the DAT because many stuff overlap somewhat. However, just because you did average on the MCAT does not mean that you are prepared for the DAT. (and vice versa). Since the format of the MCAT is different from that of the DAT, I would suggest you to take a look at some of the DAT prep. materials. Good luck.amoxicillin said:If you prepared for the MCAT already and did average, are you somewhat prepared for the DAT? thanks everyone
Content-wise? Probably the DAT. The MCAT has a harder reading section and contains physics questions, whereas the DAT's major difference is the PAT, which doesn't require as much preparation. They're also tacking on all of that biochem, sociology, and psych crap onto the MCAT soon. I have no idea how comparable the shared sections are, but the DAT is definitely more straight memorization as opposed to conceptual. It is worth mentioning that the ADEA is trying to make biology (and math?) questions more concept-based, but whether this increases or decreases the difficulty of them remains to be seen.Which one is the easiest DAT or MCAT?
