The best DAT books, the Gold Standard 4-book series, were constructed after extensively consulting college students, pre-dentistry advisors, predent online discussion groups and dental students who have taken the DAT test to determine what aspects of study guides would be the most useful to predentistry students. The best DAT books have more content, more practice questions, more color, more clear explanations to multiple choice questions and, of course, much more. We hope that you find the Gold Standard DAT answers your test preparation questions. In addition to the Dental Admission Test guides and software that we recommend to you, please consider visiting the official website for the Dental Admissions Test: click on DAT in the US or click here: DAT for students in Canada. (note: only the Canadian DAT includes manual dexterity/soap carving which is only covered in programs that specifically say so like the Canadian Edition of TopScore mentioned below).

Can't I use MCAT books instead?

There are many important DAT topics that are either not on the MCAT or are so rare as MCAT questions that the topics are not properly covered in MCAT books. Here is a partial list: photosynthesis and plant biology, cladistics, genetic technology, animal behavior and learning, population and community ecology, ecosystems, social behaviors of animals, general chemistry laboratory techniques and glassware, alkene, alkyne, ether and aromatic chemistry, multi-step organic syntheses, etc. The Gold Standard DAT was designed specifically for the DAT so all ADA topics are presented in color followed by chapter review questions, answers and explanations.

What is the DAT?

The Dental Admission Test (DAT) consists of 280 multiple-choice questions in four separate tests. The DAT is a computer-based test (CBT) approximately five hours long. There is an optional 15 minute break. The four subtests of the Dental Admission Test are:

  1. Survey of the Natural Sciences (NS) – 100 questions
    • General Biology: 40 questions
    • General Chemistry: 30 questions
    • Organic Chemistry: 30 questions
  2. Perceptual Ability Test (PAT) – 90 questions
  3. This section is composed of six separate 15-item sections: (i) apertures; (ii) view recognition; (iii) angle discrimination; (iv) paper folding; (v) cube counting; and (vi) 3-D form development.

  4. Quantitative Reasoning (QR) – 40 questions
  5. This math section will change significantly in 2015 with a greater emphasis on word problems, probability and statistics.

  6. Reading Comprehension (RC) – 50 questions, 3 reading passages

Raise Your DAT Test Scores!

All you need is 4 things to raise your DAT test scores: Time and Motivation, solid review materials (books, videos), and realistic practice tests.


Time and Motivation

How much time do you need? Pretty easy. First get your review books, videos and tests together and start working. Reassess after one week. Because there is only a limited amount of DAT review products and tests (good ones at least), you'll know after one week how much more time you'll need to complete your review. On average: 3 to 6 months.


DAT Tests

By far, the best source for practice DAT tests has traditional been the registration booklet available to students registered to take this important exam. You can get this online for free: DAT Sample Test Items. More recently, a full length practice test has been released and contains by far the most accurate question types available anywhere (currently $27 + $8 shipping). Also available is the 2014 Edition full-length timed exam (4 hours and 30 min) in a web-based format ($37 per single purchase). Some of the books described in the DAT review section contain simulated tests. It is very important to take all official ADA practice questions, check your test score then review your mistakes before trying another practice test.
