Preparing for the Canadian Dental Aptitude Test (DAT)
The Canadian Dental Aptitude Test is a rigorous test that requires time and preparation. But, you are likely already on your way to preparing for the test. Most students take the Dental Aptitude Test in their junior year of college after they have finished the core natural science courses (biology & chemistry) and are starting the application process for dental school.
The Dental Aptitude Test is a little different than most tests. Specifically different are the test environment with a carving component, and the presentation of the Perceptual Ability section. Pay attention to what we have to say. Our tips and tricks will help you.
One of the first things you should understand is that you CAN do well on the DAT if you prepare yourself. Although the test is comprehensive and covers many science, math and perceptual ability topics, you should decide now that you will do well and will do what it takes to get a "top score".
We have outlined what it takes to do well on the DAT by section. These many ideas and tips come directly from current dental students who have RECENTLY taken the DAT and are attending dental school. At ScholarWare, we take pride in obtaining CURRENT and RELEVANT information and have revolving on-staff consulting dental students who keep us apprised of the latest successful tricks and techniques that has helped them.
