    Hey how's it going, my test is in about a week and just got topscore, and was wondering about your guys' experience with topscore and the real DAT. was it easier, harder? did you get a higher or lower score on the real DAT? here are my scores so far:

    Bio: 17
    Chem: 17
    Ochem: 17
    PAT: 21
    QR: 19
    RC: 21

    Thanks

    My score was almost a mirror image of my last Topscore exam (2 days before my DAT). Same AA, TS. But it appears that most people score better on the real thing. It still irks me that I didn't. Good luck!

    I took the TopScore tests twice, my actual DAT score was 2-3 pts higher (TS, AA, PAT) than my first time taking the tests and only +/- 1 point different from my second time around.

    All I know is, hardly anyone scores worse than their Topscore scores...same or better. The difficulty is similar to Topscore on the real exam. But, of course it is up to you to learn from your mistakes after taking the tests to increase scores.
