I am retaking the DATs in a couple of months and needed some advice on how to prepare myself. I used kaplan the first time and really wasn't impressed by the coursework. what tools do you guys suggest especially for bio and PAT (those seem to be my weakness) thank youuu

Biology = Kaplan blue book as an introductory section. But it is not enough, as you can imagine. The 2nd and most common resource around SDN is Cliffs AP biology. This is what I used. I thought it was pretty helpful. I have also heard great things about Barron's AP biology, I haven't seen one yet, but some people seem to like it more than Cliffs ap bio

PAT = without a doubt, the best resource in the market today is CRACK DAT PAT software, and if your PAT is weak, I HIGHLY suggest you buy the 10 test version instead of the 5

Good luck, hope this answers your questions

I only got topscore, the sciences on topscore are pretty good, I especially liked their GC, there were a few loose ends in my GC knowledge and topscore helped me tie those loose ends
