DAT Prep Course

Personalizing DAT prep to fit you!

  • Content broken up into mini-lectures.
  • Pre-tests to help you focus your studying.
  • Includes Topscore Pro Full-length Practice Exams.
  • Developed by 6 professors.

We created a practical professor developed course based upon the ADA’s requirements for the DAT that is adaptable to your unique knowledge base to help you prepare for the exam in a reasonable amount of time. The best part is… it’s REALLY affordable.

We started by assembling a team of professors that teach the content full-time at the university level and asked them to create a course that will allow students to prepare for the DAT within an 8-12 week period.

Why 8-12 weeks? That’s because our research has shown us that the majority of students spends on average 8-12 weeks to prepare for their DAT. To develop an effective DAT Prep Course, we needed to understand how students studied.

The question then becomes, “How do I cover 3-4 years of content in 8-12 weeks?” We didn’t know either, so we asked our professors. This course is their response. It was developed to ensure the maximum coverage in the time allotted. Essentially, it is a practical approach to maximizing your knowledge base in a limited amount of time. Think of it as a professor developed strategy for students to prepare for your exam. Who would you trust more than your professor to help you prepare for an exam?

Next, we break the content up to help you be more targeted in your studying to ensure efficiency. Instead of wading through hours of content on Math, Statistics, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, etc., you are now able to cover content by topic.

Additionally, we added a series of assessments to track your progress and help you to map out your areas of strengths and weaknesses. This is a vital part of the course which allows you to be much more efficient, rather than wasting your time on what you already know.

We also include full-length practice exams from ScholarWare’s Topscore Pro. Why do we offer these practice exams? There are several reasons. First, we want you to understand your strengths and weaknesses. This will help you determine the areas you need to focus on.

Secondly, we want you to get used to taking a full-length test to acclimate you to the rigors of the exam. You need to know what the DAT requires of you, physically, to ensure that you are fully prepared.

The best part is that this course is entirely accessible by any computer or mobile device. You should be able to study where and when it’s convenient for you and not on someone else’s schedule. Be sure to check out our mobile app for iOS and Android devices.

It’s time to consider a practical option as you prepare for your DAT. An option that has developed by professors and does not require another student loan. It’s time for CE Webinar.
