Not going to be a long breakdown. Going straight the point. I am a junior with a 4.0 sGPA and 4.0 oGPA in Biochemistry. I studied for 4 months avg 4-5 hours with many days of breaks. Ok, so the best resource that will boost your scores?….CHADSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Ok, so ….yea this guy….is DAT Jesus….he has been resurrected and is helping everyone pwn the DAT. I love chemistry, but this man will make you want to marry chemistry and marry him. His subscription is cheap but it’s actual value is priceless. He has a talent for teaching and has something that just makes things stick to your brain. If you don’t use Chad’s I highly doubt you will score very high unless you are a chem wiz.
DAT Destroyer is a gold mine. The entire thing is overkill…in my case at least. The real deal was probably easier than Chad’s in terms of chemistry. Bio is a gold mine so this might be useful in that aspect. That’s about it though…understand the concepts.
Bootcamp….going to be honest the first time I used them after studying I scored nothing above a 19…maybe one 20 in GC…that’s it….guess what I destroyed it on the real thing. Don’t let practice tests bring you down!!! LEARN FROM THEM DUDES
DATqVault (Bio only)…. this is overkill. I scored avg 18 on all of them and 20 once on ALL TESTS….ONCEEEE…..20 on the real deal but could have scored higher if I remembered a few things I shouldn’t have forgotten.
Ferali’s Notes……I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU….ok….so yea it’s like 100000000 pages (62 pages) of biology notes full of definitions and concepts. Guess what if you know these you are set. It combined Kaplan, Cliffs, and Barron’s together to make sure you aren’t missing anything. The best thing is…..IT’S FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE…it’s worth like 100-200 BUCKS AT LEASTTTT if this person sold it…but didn’t. PROPS TO YOU!!! Thanks you for helping all of us with your notes and letting us use this heavenly organized piece of art.
Math Destroyer….this thing saved me on a few questions. Honestly the QR section is just dumb…you really don’t have enough time to go through every answer thoroughly. You either know it that second or you don’t…and honestly it takes so long to read and understand some of the longgggggg paragraph word problems. It’s like a gold mine, but if you know how to do the problems in here you are set…some of it is luck too.
CDP- Dead on with the real deal…Keyholes and TFE on the real deal were actually on par with CDP
My hands were shaking getting these scores…did not expect to score this high. I am very grateful. I thank God, my parents, my friends, and most importantly everyone on SDN. Thank you all!
