DAT Prep: Key Points to Remember

The Dental Admission Test or DAT holds immense importance for aspiring dentists as their fate depends on the final score. The test assesses the academic readiness as well as scientific knowledge of a student. Therefore, a well-rounded and strategic approach is imperative for this crucial examination. Preparation for the test should begin early as last minute approach won’t help much.  

A student taking this test must know the DAT sections, the content, and the format of the examination. There are multiple sections meant to evaluate distinct aspects of a candidate’s knowledge. Important sections are Natural Sciences, Perceptual Ability, Reading Comprehension, and Quantitative Aptitude. A student can develop a comprehensive study plan for DAT prep only after having a thorough understanding of the format and content.  

Is it difficult?

See, every test is challenging. However, a well-structured study plan to foster proper preparation can help overcome challenges.

Last-minute study can be of no help.

When should the preparation start?

If a candidate has decided to appear for the test, they should start planning for the exam a year before. The last two months before the intended date can mean a big difference.

How to study for the DAT?

While many students find it comfortable to study independently at their own pace, others prefer group studies. One-on-one tutoring sessions are considered more helpful if a candidate requires personalized attention to clear their doubts and get a better understanding of subjects, and test format.

Practice test is important

DAT prep is incomplete without a practice test. It is of great help because it makes a student familiar with the test, and provides a way to realize their weak and strong areas. Based on that, a student can prepare a study plan with their tutor to take the test confidently on the actual day of the exam.
