    Ahhh Baron's is terrible. It does a terrible job. I recommend just doing Kaplan's PAT over and over again and practice on speed. Actual DAT's PAT section was a lot harder. A few friends in D-school also agree that Kaplan's PAT was WAY WAY WAY too easy. If money's a problem then just practice with what you have. Any amt of practice will train your brain to look at patterns better so don't waste your time. Keep studying. G'luck!

    Barrons had a lot of typos. It did help me with angle ranking though. Kaplan's angle ranking is much easier and is not a good representation of what to expect on the actual exam. I say this quite a bit, invest in Topscore, it was in my opinion the best study aid I purchased.
