Purchasing

How quickly will I receive my order?
CrackDAT is delivered to you electronically immediately after your order is placed on our website. You can login from any of your devices by going to https://app.crackdat.com/login
Any deals if my pre-dental society wants to sign up?
Yes, we provide bulk discounts to group orders consisting of more than 10 people. Please have your representative from your pre-dental society reach out to us to set one up for your university.
Do I receive any perks of being an ASDA member?
Yes. We provide all ASDA members who support dentistry with a discount. Go to the ASDA and CrackDAT page which will walk you through the sequence of obtaining your 10% discount. Enter your ASDA membership number for verification purposes to receive your gift certificate code. Because you will only be able to go through the validation process only once with your membership number, we highly recommend that you write down the confirmation page. You will then choose your DAT Prep Pack and on the checkout enter your code for your discount. Please note that the discount is valid only for pre-dental memberships with ASDA and cannot be applied retroactively. If you are using an ASDA membership number that belongs to a dental student, it will not qualify.

Using

Will I be able to pause a test?
Yes, click on the timer at the top right in the test to pause the test.
Will I be able to abort a test and resume it later?
The objective and purpose of CrackDAT is to help you simulate the DAT exam under realistic conditions. Because on exam day you will not have the option to pause and pick up where you left off, we do not provide this capability. To reap the benefits of rehearsing the DAT experience, we recommend that you allot the default time to take the test. At any time during the test, you can click on the “REVIEW” button and click on “END” if you want to submit your answers for your review and view your answers.
Where do I view the videos and explanations?
You can find the crash course videos on the “Take Test” or “Addons” page. You can also find the video explanations to the questions once you take a test. Once you take a test, you will also be provided with an array of data on your DAT testing performance such as your weaknesses, how much time you spent per question, how many times you marked the question, etc. The robust analysis will be pivotal in identifying areas where you can improve on. You’ll be able to view the video explanation for the question here.
How do I watch the video explanations to the test questions?
There are video explanations for every question in the PAT, Math and Science sections. After you take an exam, you will be able to view them.
How are my exam scores tabulated?
The grading rubric for the Perceptual Ability Test, Natural Sciences, Reading Comprehension and Quantitative Reasoning sections are based on the scale that is provided on the American Dental Association page. Our software will enable you to compare how you performed on each test relative to other students across the world.
What is the correlation of my practice scores vs real test?
We do NOT collect any of your practice examination scores on CrackDAT. Furthermore, many students do not report to us their final DAT scores but a great website to look at is https://www.predentals.com. Therefore, we cannot make any direct correlations. What we can say is that over the past decade, the students that have prepared for the DAT after incorporating CrackDAT into their preparation regimen have achieved stellar scores. They often report back to us with great testimonials praising us for CrackDAT after they have taken the Dental Admission Test. Historically, CrackDAT has been one of the best predictors of your actual Dental Admission Test. Generally, based on past records, you can predict to get within +/- 1 of your “Crack DAT PAT” Score and 1-2 points higher on your “Crack DAT READING” and “Crack DAT SCIENCE”. Our questions tend to fall more on the rigorous side and students have tended to score equivalent or one or two points higher on the actual exam, but this can vary depending on numerous factors.
How do I view the Flash Interactive Explanations?

If you are using a mobile device (iPhone), you will need to use the Puffin Browser which you can get at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/puffin-web-browser/id472937654.
