    I was just wondering if there is a way to get a hold of old DAT tests. I read somewhere that kaplan has them, is this true?

    No, you can't get them. No one can.
    Next time search before posting.

    i believe these are the same old dat's that have been released that people talk about sometimes; it's true they're out there. Some think it's just an old wives tale. Some think it's just a legend. But theyre out there, i have a packet containing them.

    Now I dont know if they are even helpful; i havent looked through them yet. maybe they are like that practice dat exam on the ada website. simple as heck. but if anyone knows if they are actually representative....of.. anything....then please let us know lol.

    Well, let me rephrase, there are no useful old DAT tests out there. Everyone says they are useless.

    well i have some old written exams (very old, almost older than me), but i have found them to be a really useful source of questions to practice with. I take my DAT on monday so i will post what i think of the tests after i take it:scared:
