Frequently Asked Questions

  • How hard is the DAT?

    The answer to "how hard is the DAT?" is "it doesn't have to be". The DAT does cover a lot of content, and asks you to recall several years of undergraduate work, in addition to challenging you with the Perceptual Ability section. As you get to know the DAT's content and structure in your prep course, you'll also learn strategies for conquering the test.

  • How many times can you take the DAT?

    You can take the DAT up to 3 separate times, waiting 90 days between retesting attempts. Additional testing attempts must be approved by the American Dental Association. When you are planning your DAT prep schedule, you may want to allow extra time in case you might need to retest so you don't miss any application deadlines. You will need to pay a separate registration fee each time you take the DAT.

  • How to study for DAT test?

    How you study for the DAT depends on your goals, preferred study style, schedule, and more. The best way to study for the DAT is to find a method that works for you, make a plan, and stick with it. You may want to study in a traditional classroom, live online, on your own, or even with a tutor. Your DAT study plan should include reviewing content, learning strategy, as well as realistic, full-length practice.

  • When should you take the DAT?

    The best time to take the DAT for you will depend on your schedule and when you'll be able to devote time to preparing, as well as when you'll be applying to dental school. To be able to submit your application early, you'll need to have your DAT score in hand before the application window opens in early June. There is an admissions advantage to submitting an early application.

  • What is the Perceptual Ability Test on the DAT?

    The Perceptual Ability Test (PAT) is the second section of the DAT and for many students one of the most challenging. The DAT PAT tests your spatial visualization skills, including your ability to interpret two-dimensional (2D) representations of three-dimensional (3D) objects. You will need to answer 90 questions in 60 minutes.
