Just took the DAT today so I think my advice is fresh enough -
Genius is great at teaching you TFE, Bootcamp is great at helping you practice it, but genius is more representative because it's much harder than bootcamp's generators! But don't worry about low scores, read my signature and keep practicing :)

yea i noticed TFE generators are so much easier on bootcamp too!! :( .. so i just do the actual practice problems now (subject specific ones).. its kind of annoying since they re-use it when you take the actual full practice PAT tests but whatever i try not to memorize it and just understand it :). but I also use DAT genius when I want a little change, but i didn't buy it, i just use the free ones (surprisingly there is a lot you can get for free lol)

I solely relied on bootcamp for tfe, but i've heard Genius has better explanation and tackling tips. You dont have to visualize an overall structure. With enough practice, you will start seeing one or two 'irregularities' that stands out and that gives you choices of elimination. Took mine yesterday and it wasn't bad at all. If i could do it, you can as well, no doubt. Practice x999

i started doing that too to get my hands on practice and i love bootcamp explanations for everything but for TFE, i swear it just doesn't seem like i am given any stratergy at all. and dat genius only has their initial tutorial and explanation for TFE so i was really thinking to go ahead and get it lol. i have already spent alot but eh.

yeah i truly agree and def see that with practice, i improved other things but TFE, before I improve, i need to get some tips and stratergies and idk but bootcamp seems to like just give me a not clear enough one. :/

Hey @mOlar1! what did you end up doing for TFE? The TFE generators on BC are super easy so I've just been using the practice tests. Any advice? Thanks!
