    How many IDs do we need to present before taking the test? I heard that they do fingerprinting too and take your picture...is that true? Whats the point of fingering printing?

    I had two show my driver's license and one other form of ID. I used a credit card as my 2nd form of ID.

    They took a thumb print and a picture.

    I think the point is to make sure that you don't have someone taking the test for you.

    That is the point. In case of later litigation, prometric can say with confidence, yes or no, the applicant took the test. Who knows, it could be a ADA policy or it could be a prometric policy. I doubt it's an active finger print scan...just have it on file in case they need it.

    Best of luck to the op, Ive got my DAT coming up soon. 1 hr 50 mins to be exact!! :eek:

    lol, it went real well. Being a hermit for the past month proved to work well!

    All I can say is know Kaplan's materials 100%, take practice tests, Top Score, and just plain think. The PAT is rediculous...I actually took a break after the PAT I was so flustered. Turned out well though. Study hard, it is well worth the effort.

    Dang! Maybe I shouldn't have given you a "good luck" with the cool thumb's up thing. Now I've got another competitor. That's impressive--nice work
