DAT Practice Test

If you are seeking admission to dental school, you’ve likely heard of the Dental Admission Test (DAT). The DAT exam can be the difference between admittance to graduate school and months of study to retake the exam.

Be sure you are prepared for every question on test day by using our free DAT practice test that will show you questions very similar to those on the DAT exam. The other very important part of preparation for the DAT test is to know the layout of the exam so that you can optimize your study towards key areas of the exam. So, let’s take a look at important information for the exam!

DAT Practice Test

First of all, the breakdown of this multiple-choice exam is as follows:

  • Biology (40 items)
  • General Chemistry (30 items)
  • Organic Chemistry (30 items)
  • Perceptual Ability (90 items)
  • Reading Comprehension (50 items)
  • Quantitative Reasoning (40 items)

Test takers will have 4 1/2 hours to complete the exam. Like many other admission exams, the DAT exam does not have a passing score and instead reports your scaled score electronically to you within four weeks. The DAT test scoring is a scaled score that ranges from 1 to 30 with an 18 as the national average.

With all of this important information in mind, be sure to check out our DAT practice test to ensure that your study and preparation time is optimized for what you will encounter on test day! Check out some sample practice questions below that will kick-start your preparation!
