    Key Takeaway

    What kind of scrap paper do I get on the DAT?

    When you go to the DAT testing center, you’ll be given one of three things:

    1. Two sheets of laminated graph paper, two dry erase markers, and tissue paper to erase.
    2. Two sheets of laminated graph paper, two dry erase markers, and NO tissue paper to erase. The markers are non-erasable, so if you run out of space to write, you can raise your hand and the proctor will exchange your two old laminated sheets for another two new sheets.
    3. Blank pieces of paper and markers.

    The two sheets of laminated graph paper and two markers pretty much look like this:

    One side of the laminated paper is gridded and the other side is blank. 

    The blank paper lacks the grid.
