    hey ya'll.. For those of you that have already taken the DAT or some practice tests, is there an order ya'll would recommend I take them in? I know that Acheiver is harder than Topscore so I thought about taking it after but then my pre-health advisor told me to take Topscore last because it is the best indication of how I will perform on the real exam. I just want to get the most out of them. Thanks for any input.

    P.S.= I am planning on doing destroyer probably after both of these because people say you need to have a really good understanding before moving on to Destroyer. Is this a good plan?

      Having a good understanding = not sleeping through chem/ochem/bio and making it out with a 3.0 or better

      I say...get started right away on destroyer...the destroyer is so much more than just a way to quiz yourself...everything in it is valuable and serves as a study guide as well. Just go through destroyer and make sure you have your textbooks available. Most question you have from destroyer material WILL NOT BE FOUND IN THE KAPLAN BOOK...so you can toss the blue book...or keep it in the bathroom in case you run out of toilet paper.

      I think the destroyer is great because it forces you to use your textbooks and really gets you thinking about the material. Hell...some of the material isn't even found in textbooks.

        I know for a fact topscore wasn't updated a year ago....it wouldn't surprise me if they haven't updated their material over the last few years but pretend like they're releasing a new annual addition. Kinda like the kaplan book. Shaddy bastards....
