    hey guys!

    I was wondering if any of you know this...is the top score format similar to the real DAT? I'm especially wondering about the reading comp part. Will the passage be visible with each question? And when I go to the next question will the passage stay at the same location of my previous question? Just wondering.....

    I asked this question a while ago and no one answered me...

    but since I took the DAT today...yes, it's like Topscore. I forget whether it is topscore or Achiever where everytime you answer a question, the passage resets to the top of the page, so even if you were reading in paragraph 8 and wanted to stay there, as soon as you hit next, the passage returns to paragraph 1. Its a pretty minor annoyance though.

    Otherwise topscore and the real dat pretty much look the same. the exhibit button for the periodic table though brings up a super-oversized table blocks out the questions and answers at full saze, so you have to shrink it each time you use it.
