    from my experience and from what ive read here: Sciences go up. PAT goes down. Reading probably goes down. Math is right about the same give or take.

    All these differences are within a point or two...not too drastic.

    The Sciences are definitely harder with Topscore.

    My topscore was 19-21. My actual DAT was 22. Topscore is definitely harder, dAT is more basic questions. Its either u know it or u dont on DAT, straight basic questions, just covers very broad topics.

    Thanks everyone for the quick responses..i've taken one full topscore test and its between 18-19 in each section. But those were the scores i got last time around(in topscore), and it didn't work out to my advantage. But i'm still studying, 2 weeks to go!!
