    u can't bring in a calculator, but u since the test is on a computer, u can load up the ms window's calculator by press "Alt + F4". go ahead and try it. but if u get caught cheating don't blame me.

    Most of the questions don't require any complex calculations. Just know your multiplication table and you should be fine. And practice, practice, practice before you go take it.

    hahaha, it'll only close the application.. and plus i told u guys to try it here first. if u experimented w/ it.. u'd be stupid to pull that out on the test.

    no hard feelings, guys.

    there's a simple calculator app for the iphone that can be used on the DAT at any prometric testing center. The more advanced functions are disabled.

    If you get stuck on any problems i think you can even text chacha.

    I'd say it serves them right for trying to cheat.
