More info

To help you prepare for the DAT, the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Dentistry offers a unique new DAT Prep Course. This course is entirely on-demand which gives you the flexibility of studying where you want and when your schedule permits.

This course consists of a series of on-demand mini-lectures covering all the subject areas tested on the DAT, including biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, math, statistics, verbal reasoning and perceptual ability. Each lecture is broken down by topic to allow students to focus their studying based upon their own strengths and weaknesses.

Begin with the pre-test for each subject area which helps you to identify gaps their knowledge base for each subject area by assessing their practical knowledge of the subjects covered in the DAT.

Access to these mini-lectures and all recordings will be available for 3 months.  Digital handouts are included and can be downloaded to your computer. 

Use the Question Bank to reinforce the concepts from the mini-lectures and continue to track your progress in your review. Use our Notes feature to personalize your process. Our Learning Management System (LMS) will compile and allow you to download your notes for review at anytime.

The registration fee to participate in the course is $550.00 which includes not only the course but also the CD-ROM "Top Score Pro for the Dental Admission Test" produced by ScholarWare.

Don't forget our mobile app that allows you to access the course from any mobile device. Sign up now!
