On all the TopScore Bio sections there seems to be a large amount of taxonomy & classification questions. They're really specific, asking about genus/classes.

Is the actual DAT the same?

You just never know. I got like 5 taxonomy questions (ugh) when I took the DAT in September, but my friends who took it before and after me had NONE. It really depends on your test. I suggest you study it to be safe.

How specific were the questions? --Did they just cover down to Phylums or do they get more specific as in classes or orders?

Sorry, I don't remember specifically, but it did get pretty detailed. However, I assure you that using Destroyer is more than enough practice for taxonomy questions... and the entire science section actually. Good luck.
