    Hey, I know this question has most likely been asked and answered one million and one times, I just want opinions from students who have already taken the DAT's. What books are most useful in studying: texts from class or review books like Destroyer and Dummies? I'm sure both should be used in conjunction, but what did most people find useful.

    I am not taking the DATs until August so I have some time.

    Kaplan Blue Book for basics (start with this first)
    Dat Destroyer
    Schaum's Outlines (Bio I've heard a lot of good things about and some from Orgo)
    Crack Dat Pat
    Dat Achiever
    Top Score

    Last two are generally for towards the end of your studying, 6 practice exams (3 each) to hone in on your weaknesses.

    actually i believe princeton review has started up dat prep again. only self prep outside of cali though. if you're feeling adventurous, i'd say go for that instead of kaplan. if they're anything like the prep for mcat's i'm assuming it to be pretty good.
