    Hi everyone,

    I know this question has been repeated and answered a thousand times already but I cant find the old posts for this...so can anyone just direct me to the old disscusions about how to study for PAT or just tell me in here? like what are the good materials for study pat? i have the dat achiever but it doesn't tell me possible strategies for studying it...

    Thanks...appreciate any feedback.

    I thought the Kaplan and Barron's book was good.

    That's exactly what it is. Practice is the best way to prepare though. You can create random tests beyond the prearranged 5 or 10, so you can try out strategies to get your best fit. You can read and follow along on strategies, but until you go through multiple practice tests on your own, it doesn't do any good.

    Crack DAT PAT is pretty good. I don't know for sure, but it seems like the angle ranking and hole-punching on CrackDATPAT is really really hard? Are there instance on the real DAT where 4 half-holes are punched in 4 folds???

    I thought the DAT Acheiver PAT stuff was pretty good, although PAT ended up being my worst section... I had Topscore and Kaplan, and they weren't as close to the real thing as Achiever's, though.

    Also, this goes in the DAT forum :p
