DAT Study Guide was designed to help predental students conquer the dental admission test. With the increasing dental school competition, it is becoming more and more important to score well on the DAT. Although it is important to be a well rounded applicant if you plan on applying to dental school, a strong DAT score and GPA are two fundamental parts of your application.
The DAT was designed to test your knowledge of the sciences, your ability to critically analyze passages, and your analytical abilities. Although you are allowed to retake the test once every 3 months, all of your DAT scores will be seen by the dental schools that you apply to.
The test is also expensive, currently over $350, so it is also economical to do well on the test your first attempt. How do you do that? Study, study, study.
There are many resources available online that will help hone your skills by offering simulated DAT practice tests which will allow you to see how well you are doing.
Depending on your academic abilities and the intensity of your prior college courses, you can expect to spend at least 2 weeks of intense studying. Many people spend months, if not a whole semester preparing for the dental admission test.
Doing well on the DAT is certainly no substitute for a bad GPA, but it is a great way to show the admissions committee that you are prepared to do some serious studying and show your dedication and commitment to dental school.
The purpose of DATStudyGuide.net is to provide the resources and DAT information that will allow you to succeed on the DAT. We plan to post links to helpful practice tests, study materials, and statistics! Best of luck in your studies.
