    Dude... Relax.

    Just think of it as taking another practice test, and you are giving in it your best shot. Panic is the last you want to do.

    Good Luck

    All you need to do now is to keep on taking full sample tests (e.g: do one complete test a day) in actual conditions and timing (including breaks) to get your rhythm for the actual DAT. Once you get through several of them you will feel less nervous about taking the actual one. But leave the day before the actual test to relax!

    Best of luck to you! :thumbup:

    Yeah, you really should be done studying. From now on it should be nothing but practice exams. They're a great way to boost your confidence.

    make sure you get a good amount of sleep the day before!! dont' sleep too long but just enough...it's actually a really important factor in my eyes. like everyone else said...just take practice exams each day and relax the day before the exam. good luck and try your best!

    The day before mine I watched movies and drank a few beers before I went to bed. I would stress NOT looking at anything DAT related the day before.

    Oh and good luck, you're gonna be fine, just chill out like everyone says. The test will only beat you if you're scared of it.
