If you were to study for a month...wat would u recommend using as study tools?

For bio Id say AP bio and Destroyer.
For G&O Chem Kaplan BB.
For PAT just do tests.
For QR just do destroyer.
For RC WING IT!


What you think? Good enough set up for those who just have fresh bio knowledge and want to take the DAT in a month.

ADD your own inputs! Who knows, you can help some1.

I only studied for a month, and did okay- I was also working 40-45hr/wk doing research.

I used Destroyer for all the topics, and read through the BB once. I was fairly strong on organic. I wish I looked over the AP BIO. I used crack dat pat- which was really helpful. I under estimated the QR and I'm an average reader. I recommend doing practice tests to build confidence. I used both achiever and topscore. I liked topscore better- I thought it was more realistic.

For PAT yes just do the tests (but they should be from Crack the DAT PAT)
For QR just destroyer?? destroyer is horrible for math, it's way to easy... I think Crack the DAT Math is comparable.
For RC just WING IT!???? Maybe, that's what I did (I got a 16). I say if you wing it do not... repeat do not "search and destroy".

It is said to be near-identical of the actual PAT. If you have the time then get the 5 tests. the 10 tests if you want to do a bit better on it.

does it really matter what year the destroyer is when studying?

2007 or 2008?

2008 has more questions, but if you already have 2007 then it is up to you. You will be paying full price for the new questions.

I'm assuming you bought it used? If not maybe you can just contact them and see what they can do for you.
Orgoman doesn't update books anymore, but it wouldn't hurt to call.

The simulation questions I'm takiong on GChem require some tricky math calculations and using approximations. Will this be required on the real thing or does the real thing simply ask you to set up the equation?

Hii Dizzle, I believe they ask you both scnearios. The thing to remember is that, they wont give u as hard of a calculation as you get on the practice tests. So rest a sure, you will be fine as long as you the know the formulas.

questions.

I felt the bio got repetitive, as did some of the chems.
Hence, I would stick to the old edition and put my money elsewhere.
