To those who have taken the DAT, how does the PAT section compare to CDP? I'm asking because I find CDP very inconsistent in terms of difficulty. Having taken 6 tests thus far, I've scored between 19 and 29.

if you are scoring 29 in CDP with 60 mins. don't waste your time you are good for PAT. Spend more time for other sections. good luck

I know for most people they thought crack dat pat was spot on to the real DAT but for me I took all 10 Crack Dat Pat tests and averaged a 22 on them and then on the real DAT i got a 19 for PAT i was really disappointed. And just from my own experience not all the crack Dat pat test are created equal. Hope this helps

I averaged a 24 on all 10 CDP tests and got a 23 on the real thing. I'd say CDP will predict your real score within +- 1 point.

I suggest just figuring out how to do the half holes because at least you'd be prepared for it just in case you come across it on the real thing...I think when I was studying for it I heard that the half holes weren't on the real test but went ahead and prep for it and I think (I can't remember) there was probably like one or two on there
