DAT Courses

At our site, we are dedicated wholly to the DAT exam.

EZ DAT Tutors provide online DAT courses aligned to what is seen on the real exam. With over 10 years of experience helping students achieve high scores on the DAT, our DAT courses are ranked the most aligned to what is seen on the exam. Our DAT classes were designed with the mindset of reflecting what is seen on the real DAT exam. Taking this approach, we have prepped students to achieve high scores to get into the best dental schools in the country. Our DAT test prep courses are guaranteed to get you the scores you need to get into the best dental schools.

Why do our DAT courses help students reach high scores?

DAT courses prep students on what is seen on the actual DAT test 

EZ DAT tutors are expected to have master-level education and show strong knowledge related to specific topics covered on the DAT exam. Our main goal in the DAT classes is to deliver DAT content and DAT exam questions that are most reflective of the real exam, so we expect that tutors have full, accurate, and updated knowledge of all topics covered on the DAT. Another reason our courses prep students for what is on the test is because of our strong research and development philosophy; we have a team focused on keeping content and questions updated, so you get the best experience in the DAT courses.  

DAT Courses instructed by DAT experts

Regarding DAT tutoring, we have a long history of helping students get the scores needed on the Dental Admissions Test. One of the strong benefits of our DAT tutoring services is that our tutors are devoted to the content and questions tested on the DAT. Unlike other companies and tutoring services, we support students with the DAT exam every day, and we have undertaken this endeavor since the inception of our DAT courses.

Delivering DAT classes unlike any other site 

When you search for “dat courses” or “dat tutoring,” many search inquires surface, but many sites don’t specialize in DAT exams if you look carefully. Many of these sites focus on 100s of exams and subjects, so you are not getting focused help for the DAT. Other tutoring sites provide services for many other exams, and those tutors support many subjects and exams; however, we are focused on delivering success-driven DAT courses at our site. We are the legacy tutoring site for DAT courses, and we have helped 1000s of students since our inception.

Targeting content that is focused on the DAT 

Our DAT tutoring courses give students the necessary knowledge related to the exam to best position them to get the scores needed. Unlike other tutoring sites, our tutors ensure resources are 100% aligned to the real exam and the students fully comprehend content and questions. DAT covers many subject areas organic chemistry, biology, chemistry, perceptual ability test, reading comprehension, and mathematics, and our courses only focus on what we know is on the exam. You take one or two-semester college courses for most of these subjects to gain knowledge, and the exam does not cover everything. Our classes are designed to focus on what is tested on the DAT. 

Getting personalized DAT throughout the course  

The DAT exam covers a lot of content and can be tricky, unlike any other exam you take at universities. Therefore, having personalized one-on-one support focused on your needs is critical for getting a high score. Our DAT tutors analyze past scores, administer assessments, and track progress to make sure that the DAT course will boost your weakness and overall scores. Our DAT courses provide a more personalized curriculum focusing on your strengths and needs while also delivering strategies. Personalized help gives you focus DAT content knowledge but supports you in boosting confidence and reducing anxiety.

DAT Tutoring Helping Students Score HIGH

Thanks Kelly for helping me. I got 22, so I should be good for the University of Michigan dental school. Ellen M. University of Michigan School of Dentistry, Ann Arbor, MI

I wanted to get into Indiana University School of Dentistry, and the application deadline was coming soon. I did not want to take the test again, so I paid for 8 weeks course. I had all the knowledge of the subjects as I did well in college, but I think this program gave a good review of the exam. Nearly all topics covered were on the exam.  Yvonne A. Indiana University School of Dentistry, Indianapolis, IN

I got 23 on the exam. Thanks for the help. Fanning S. University of Maryland School of Dentistry, Baltimore, MD

Before signing up for this course, I did DAT boot camp and several books from amazon. Nothing bad about these resources. I think DAT boot camp gave me foundation content and decent practice, and I got a score of 20. However, I planned to get into Penn Dental Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, so very competitive. I wanted a higher score to increase my chances. With this dat class, I did get additional 2 points, and overall I am pleased with what I got out of this program. Rick T. University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, Philadelphia, PA

Hey. I wanted to let you know I increased by 3 points, and I got my 19. Thanks Suzanne A. University of Puerto Rico, School of Dental Medicine, San Juan, PR

 

I really appreciate the support provided during the course. I took dat 3 times. I studied a lot. I just was a bad test taker. I have always been a bad test taker, but this program was very different. I did not do a lot of stuff in the course but what I did was stuff I saw before on the exam. Danielle A.  Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry, Nashville, TN

My advice to everyone looking to do this course is to put in as much time as possible. The tutors are there to help, and they do help, but you have to put in the dedication and time. Do everything plus more and more. If you have questions, the tutor is there to help, and in the end, you will get good scores. I got 21, which is 6 points higher than before. Tom A. Marquette University School of Dentistry, Milwaukee, WI

 

Taking the test the second time and getting a 17 was not a good feeling. I needed at least 19, so I decided to do this dat course as my friend did it and got 22. I wanted to attend West Virginia University School of Dentistry as I did not want to leave the state and be close to my parents, so I wanted to get into this school. I am very happy with my decision to do the course as I got into my school choice. Jesus A. West Virginia University School of Dentistry, Morgantown, WV
