    seeing as how princeton review is relatively new at offering DAT course, i don't think there's too many people who can tell you the quality of the course but from someone who took kaplan, i can tell you it's not all that great. I say go with princeton review; i think they'll do a better job of preparing than kaplan did.

    I have no experience with the Princeton DAT books, but the Princeton MCAT books are great. The biology section is much more in-depth and the Ochem/G-chem section thoroughly explains important concepts. The Princeton MCAT books dont cover a lot of calculation type problems for gchem, so I am not sure how it is for their DAT books.

    All in all, I highly recommend them.
