I just took the first 2 Topscores exams, one week apart. My scores are:
BIO/GC/OC/RC/QR/PAT
TS#1: 18/20/19/20/22/20
TS#2: 19/19/19/19/21/24
I've been studying for 6-7wks, 3-4hrs/day. My dat is in a week. Not sure if i should reschedule for another maybe another 2 wks. Any suggests would be appreciated! Thanks.

Your scores look fine to me. I did similar on one of my practice tests this past Sunday and am taking mine August 15th. I've seen people on this site that have made around your scores on Topscore (which look good) and do very well on the test. I would just go ahead and take it if I were you unless you feel really uncomfortable in a particular area (which I don't think is the case by looking at your scores).

As long as you know what you are getting wrong on the topscore then NO take it when your scheduled. Review everything that you are getting wrong because they ask similar questions... I scored about 2-3 points higher on the actual DATs than on the Topscore

i think you should postpone... i mean if you're asking us, that means you're not ready... just don't postpone it like months

You will score 19-22 on RC and QR on the real thing. TS may fluctuate up and down, usually it is higher on the real thing.

Take the third test and report back.

i only took the first topscore test but i found the QR to be extremely easy compared to the real thing. i got a 22 on the topscore first test but horrible on the real DAT. higher on real DAT sciences

Is that because there were harder problems like probability and trig on real DAT? or... because problems were just longer so you ran out of time?

I don't think an extra week of studying would do much for you. Just take the test and get it out of the way.
