What is one piece of advice you would give to another student preparing to take the DAT?

I suggest coming up with the timeline very early on and don’t be afraid of switching back and forth between different sections. Most importantly, do research and finalize a compact list of the materials that you’re going to stick to, then trying to maximize what the resources offer. This especially help if you are a last minute studier like me.

How did you use Crack the DAT to prepare for the DAT?

Crack the DAT is one of the best resources, and I highly recommend it as part of your resources list, especially if you want a short list. If you have a short period of time to study for DAT, definitely include Crack the DAT. Their course videos are exceptionally helpful and compact, especially in how they break down the PAT section.

What would you do differently to prepare for the DAT?

I would go over the the test bank one more time before taking the test. This consolidates and reinforces the parts that I already got, while specifically points out what I need to improve on. I also wish I had spent more time on practicing PAT. However, the videos from Crack the DAT, by themselves, are very helpful. Considering the short period of time I had to study for DAT (2 weeks) and that Crack the DAT was my only material for this section, I’m very happy with the result.
