DATBooster
Booster Prep
DATBooster is the #1 study tool for the DAT and contains everything you need to prepare for the DAT. See why DATBooster is used by most pre-dental students.

The difference DATBooster made in my life was night and day. If you are considering using DATBooster, I can guarantee you it is the right decision.

The first time I took the DAT, I went into it with complete fear and dread. I even pushed it back twice and still was a panicked wreck on test day. My scores reflected this, as I barely scored an 18 AA that day. Self-doubt and disappointment consumed me for days afterwards, and I honestly wondered if I was cut out for dental school. After taking some time to reflect, I decided to change my study tools and retake the test 3 months later. I wanted to be a dentist as early as the fifth grade, and I knew there had to be resources out there that would drastically change my experience the second time around.

I chose DATBooster as my main study source the second time around, and I am beyond happy that I did. I scored a 23 AA, with a TS of 24. My reading comprehension increased by four points. My biology score increased by SEVEN points. My general chemistry score increased by EIGHT points. The difference DATBooster made in my life was night and day. If you are considering using DATBooster, I can guarantee you it is the right decision. The material can seem daunting, especially the broadness of the biology content, but DATBooster condenses the information to cover what you need to know without leaving other content out. Furthermore, if you are someone who struggles with detailed concepts in chemistry, this program simplifies it in a way that allows you to understand it over time and build a strong foundation, rather than just memorizing certain formulas and types of problems.

I could go on and on, but if there is anything you must know, it’s that this program is extremely up-to-date and representative of the DAT’s current content. After applying to 12 dental schools, I received 8 interviews, with 5 of them resulting in acceptance and 2 of them offering waitlist positions. I have strongly recommended this program to both my friends and co-workers who are taking this test, and I continue to recommend it to this day. I am so grateful for DATBooster and could not have gotten here without them.
