Prepare for the Dental Admissions Test (DAT)

There are a number of books designed to help dentists, dental students, prospective dental students, dental assistants, and dental hygienists to prepare for their dental admissions test (DAT),  national board examinations (NDBE), and other examinations. Here's a discussion of the various choice:

  • For the Dental Admissions Test (DAT), the most popular text by far is the Kaplan DAT with CD-ROM, selling about ten times as fast as the next most popular text

  • Dental Admission Test (DAT) Computerized Sample Tests and Guide, Top Score Pro for the DAT is number two in popularity.

  • A distant third is Barron's How to Prepare for the Dental Admission Test (DAT).

    Check America's Dental Bookstore. All of these DAT test preparation books are listed there, with helpful comments about each one.

These books are very helpful, and many students use them. An additional piece of advice in DAT test preparation is to be sure you are relaxed and well-rested when you take the exam. Have a moderate-sized breakfast, and keep telling yourself how confident you are. Do not cram up until the very last minute, as that only tends to increase your anxiety. Have a cut-off for preparation no later than early in the evening before the test, and then tell yourself that you're well-prepared, spending the rest of the time psyching yourself up for the exam.
