What is your background and what kind of test taker are you? Are you taking the DAT before you've finished your core bio/chem classes? During? After? How long after? How much do you remember? Do you have the money and more importantly discipline to go through a prep class?
How much do you normally study for a knowledge based test? How has that studying habit worked out for you? Adjust your schedule accordingly.
How well do you read? How well are you in a timed pressure moment when you're watching that timer tick down right in front of you? Do you freeze up? If so consider mentally subtracting 3-5 minutes from the real time limit.
Good score on the DAT can be had if you know yourself and know the test and prepare for it. People have scored well by studying balls-to-the-wall for weeks or months in advance, and people have scored well by playing a lot of video games and then 3 days beforehand go oh **** and flip through old bio notes while trying to find naked pictures of Lindsay Lohan online and then finally giving up (on the notes flipping) and then listen to Que Sera Sera and then just saying f* it and then taking it.
All up to you. You know what you need to do. Get it done.
