"I made sure to do all 10 of the Bootcamp practice exams, and these practice exams were VERY representative of the actual exam."

I want to emphasize that if you use Bootcamp EFFECTIVELY, you WILL be prepared for this exam. I made sure to do all ten of the Bootcamp practice exams, and these practice exams were VERY representative of the actual exam. If you are on a tight studying schedule like I was, definitely make it your priority to get through all of the practice exams, and focus on studying any concepts you struggled with that consistently showed up on practice exams.

"Throughout my time using Bootcamp I felt empowered by the team of tutors and personal one-on-one with experts about specific questions."

To alleviate my apprehension, I began using Bootcamp following Ari’s study guide. This gave me more of an idea of how to pace myself based on the volume of material and set clear- cut deadlines for when I had to learn each lesson. After the first two weeks of following the plan, I felt that the study guide provided a solid understanding of how to study each different section. I was able to craft my own schedule to review salient material that I had watched in previous lessons.

"My favorite part of DAT Bootcamp was the depth of the solutions. Each question or bio bite you encounter comes with a clear and definite solution."

Make sure you go out and take a break a couple times a week, otherwise you’ll go insane. Take a deep breath and tell yourself that you can do it. You have everything you need right in front of you. Take interest in everything you learn. The information on this test is what makes the world go round. Everything is easier when you’re having fun, that is my floss-ophy.

Two critical advantages that Bootcamp has over other study programs is that: 1. The questions they ask are very similar to questions found on the actual DAT and 2. The format and interface of their Full Length Tests are almost identical to the DAT itself.

"I absolutely loved using Bootcamp, everyone was so supportive and responsive, the interface is user friendly, and it was perfect for learning and refreshing old / new topics."

The DAT is a hard exam, but anything is achievable, it can be discouraging to get certain scores, but you have to remember that getting it wrong in practice will only help you retain it better for the actual exam! Good luck to everybody I hope I was somewhat helpful and feel free to reach out anytime at all!

"Bootcamp was my primary source of studying and practicing for the DAT, and it was one of my best decisions in life to use this site."

For future DAT test takers, I recommend watching all the lectures and taking notes, and doing the practice problems constantly throughout the whole process. Also, I highly recommend taking all the practice exams in a fairly short amount of time (probably not six in a week like I did) in order to become familiar with the structure of the exam right before test day.

"A few of my classmates recommended Bootcamp, and after taking my DAT, I can confidently say it is one of the best study tools there is."

"I would not focus too much on your practice test scores, as mine were often different than the actual score I received. Focus on learning the material as thoroughly as you can and you will do well. Stay consistent and often remind yourself of the reason for your studying."

"This platform offered everything I needed to tackle each section of the exam with confidence, from Bio to PAT. One of the standout features of DAT Bootcamp is its extensive practice resources."

At first glance, it might seem overwhelming—a mountain of biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, and more. But here's the thing: just like training for a marathon, conquering the DAT is all about patience and persistence. Sure, you could try to sprint through your study materials, cramming every detail into your brain in a frenzy of late-night study sessions. But trust me, that approach is a recipe for burnout and frustration. Instead, take a deep breath, and recognize that it's okay to stumble along the way, to have days when you feel like you're barely treading water. What matters is that you keep moving forward, one step at a time. So, how do you navigate studying for the DAT? It's all about adapting your study habits and finding the most efficient way to absorb and retain the material. There won't be one strategy that will work for every student. It might take some trial and error to figure out what that looks like, but trust me, it's worth the effort.

"I felt very prepared by Bootcamp and you genuinely won't need any other service if you are dedicated and put in the time."

Bootcamp has some great resources so definitely take advantage of them - my favorites were DAT Biology High Yield Notes, Dr. Mike's videos for GC/OC, PAT videos for TFE and pattern folding, QR Academy handouts, and most importantly the BOOTCAMP PRACTICE TESTS. Know these 10 tests like the back of your hand. Tag every question you answer. Focus on your weaknesses. And definitely make time for yourself!

I feel like for me, the key was setting ‘realistic’ goals. The DAT is a beast and the only way to tackle it is focused studying, one day at a time.

"Even if I got a question right, I made sure I knew WHY I got it right. The video explanations after you answer a question are very helpful with this."

The practice tests are SO SIMILAR to the actual thing! Once you start to get more comfortable with similar questions, it is really just the numbers that are changing and I know my confidence continued to grow leading up to the test.

Putting your all in this test is one of the best investments in your future that you could make. Just know that if you do find yourself in a similar situation, it is completely possible to score well on the DAT in a short amount of time.

"Finish the practice tests. That’s three quarters of the battle, with the rest simply being review. DAT Bootcamp, with its tagging system, makes that much easier for you. "

Everyone comes to the table with a different skillset and knowledge base, so it’s counterproductive to study together. Simply studying in parallel (think parallel play among kindergartners) and coming together only to review the material in common is more than enough to enjoy the benefits of having someone to suffer with.

"I studied for the DAT for about 8 weeks using mainly DAT Bootcamp. I believe all you need is Bootcamp."

I would often not finish my goals for the day cause life happens, don't feel too stressed out by this just move those tasks on to the next day or figure out how to compromise. I highly recommend finding something that keeps you mentally strong during your preparation, this exam is mentally taxing (at least to me it was), so make sure to check yourself and take breaks if you need it, and postpone your test date if you need to!

"I seriously cannot recommend DAT Bootcamp enough myself. All of the information I needed for the test was somewhere in this resource."

For me, the two most impactful factors that got me to this score were the materials I used and the way I learned / practiced. 99% of my time was spent with DAT Bootcamp. As for how to learn, I think there is a way to intake information that is the most conducive to understanding, remembering, and being able to dynamically apply it: start broad, conceptual, and real and only AFTER that, go into the specific, mechanistic, and hypothetical. After you have a grasp of the information, test yourself with practice sections. A day later, come back to the questions you got wrong and ask yourself why you got the incorrect answer, then review Bootcamp's thought process to get the right answer.

"It was a tough process, but Bootcamp and my amazing support system helped me make it through and succeed. I definitely would recommend this study program to everyone!"

My two biggest tips are to make time for fun and to use the practice exams as a tool, not your enemy. Studying for this exam can be overwhelming and isolating, so taking healthy breaks is KEY. Make time for walks, going outside, seeing friends and family. Those things help my mental health and helped me stay in a good mindset along the way.

"Bootcamp is by far the way to go. Take all 15 practice tests, but don’t get discouraged. Use them to learn. Every completed test is a success, scores don’t matter till test date arrives."

Super practical advice: 1. Bootcamp is by far the way to go. 2. Plug away at those OC reaction bites till you have them all memorized. 3. Bio Bites all the time-every minute you’ve got. 4. Watch every explanation to every problem until you stop missing them. 5. Take all 15 practice tests, but don’t get discouraged. Use them to learn. Every completed test is a success, scores don’t matter till test date arrives.

"During the final week before my test, I retook every single practice test for every subject. This was one of the most important things I did as I saw nearly identical questions on my actual DAT."

While studying for the DAT can be very stressful and daunting, if you take the appropriate approach to how you spend your time it will make it that much easier. I would recommend writing out everything you plan on doing each day sort of like a to-do list. Then, once you finish it, cross it off. Also, don’t spend too much time on topics that you already know but rather focus on your weaknesses. Other than that, just make sure to stay consistent and get as much information out of Bootcamp as you can!

"DAT Bootcamp was the only resource I used (besides the classes I was currently taking). It is extremely satisfying to put your all in, and reap the success that follows."

If I could go back and change one thing, I would start out taking a full length exam instead of waiting for the first one in the program. This would have given me a better understand of the question format and which topics I would need to give extra attention.

Without DAT Bootcamp, I would not have been able to score in the top 10% of test-takers. If I can do it, I know you surely can! Remember, the hardest part is getting started, but once you start, make sure you run!

"DAT Bootcamp had me covered in all aspects of the exam and I did not have to use a single source outside of Bootcamp!"

If there was anything I could go back and change, it would be to start studying from earlier in the year even during the semester, because little bits of knowledge daily is better than trying to cram all the information in a short period of time.
