    If I register the Dat application now in ADEA, when is the earliest date of DAT Test I can take? I didn't know that I should get the letter from the ADEA for the test. How long does it take? I already scheduled my plane and hotel. help! it's urgent. my flight will be in 3 days.

    are you sure? according to the ADEA website, I have to receive the letter from ADEA before taking test. What letter? Do I have to bring it? and they said I have to apply 30-60 days before the test date I plan to take. what does it mean? I received ID # by e-mail from ADEA, then just call prometric center???

    After you register for the test on the ADEA website, you'll get an e-mail within a day or two with your id number (usually your SSN) and give you a link to the prometric site where you choose the time and location of the test. i think the 30-90 days was for back when they actually mailed the appointment letters. Now usually within 2-3 days you can sign up for the test.

    But you will not be able to take the test the next day, it's all dependent on the testing center schedule and when the earliest opening is.

    No no no. You can schedule the test 2-3 days after you register with the ADEA website. The test day is all dependent on the openings in the prometric center you will take your test at, there are usually no openings for like 3 weeks from the day you register (at least that was the case for me). i don't know anything about the canada centers so i would call them to get a straight answer.

    It depends on your luck.
    I received my letter on the next day, and there were openings everywhere on the calendar.

    It has more to do with the location of the center, and the time of the year.

    From what I can remember, the Prometric center at downtown SF is almost always packed.
