Would having finished Bio 1&2, Chem 1& 2, and Organic 1 be enuff to conquer the dAT?
KDBuff said:Only 4 reactions first semester??? I took the DAT with only one semester of O-Chem and scored a 25 on that section. I thought my first semester prepared me very well, and I used the Kaplan book to supplement everything else. For the stuff that hadn't been covered, I basically just memorized reactants and products of reactions. The DAT doesn't require you to know how the reactions work, just what you start and end with. As the previous poster mentioned, maybe it depends on what you've learned so far.
I think it would take some time and dedication on your part, but it can be done. I put in a lot of time studying for the DAT, but it all worked out in the end.
