Do you have dreams of attending dental school and becoming a successful dentist? Maybe you see yourself as an orthodontist, an oral surgeon, or conducting basic research. No matter what you want to ultimately do with your dental degree, you must first take and succeed on the Dental Admissions Test, or DAT. It is the common entry point for all students who want to compete for a seat in dental school. It is important that you are properly prepared for the exam in order to successfully achieve the score you need to gain entry to your chosen school.

The DAT is a challenging exam, and tests an enormous range of skills. One of the most unique parts of this test is the DAT Perceptual Ability Test (PAT). The PAT portion of the DAT asks you to manipulate shapes and visualize three-dimensional objects from two-dimensional projections. You may be asked to rank angles, count cubes, or fold patterns in your mind. For most students taking the DAT, these are skills that they have never before been tested on, so the PAT can pose a very unique and novel challenge. Your may understandably struggle with a new challenge like the DAT Perceptual Ability Test. It is common for students to spend weeks trying to figure out how best to study the material and commit it to memory, wasting precious study time that could have been used for more conceptually challenging ideas. Instead of squandering valuable time, consider working with an experienced DAT Perceptual Ability instructor.

The student and I did a basic overview of the Math topics that will be covered on the ISEE examination she will be taking in October. We also reviewed and mastered how to solve perimeter and area algebraic word problems, isolated algebraic word problems, and percent problems.

Today we spent most of the session working on the passive periphrastic construction. This past week, the student's class covered the future passive participle, which is used to form the passive periphrastic. After verifying that he understood the formation of the construction, we moved on to some workbook exercises, which had the student translating sentences from English to Latin, with each sentence containing at least one example of the passive periphrastic. We spent part of the session going over the new vocab from the past two lessons, and I suggested some mnemonic aids. We spent the end of the session working on jussive noun clauses, which the student is learning this coming week in class. After getting the formation and meaning down, we again went to the workbook, where the student did well translating from Latin to English.

We focused solely on volume calculations. We talked about the different methods - cylindrical disks, washers, and shells, and when to use which method. It was a lot of material to cover and, although the student did well with setting up the integrals and, doing the calculations, I don't think he absorbed all of the material. Volumes would normally be covered over 2 or 3 lectures.

We reviewed and worked through more triangle problems. After this, we reviewed the types of questions that would include standard quadrilaterals. Following this, we worked through the general format of problems for circles. I assigned the remainder of 27 (triangles) as well as 25 (rectangles) and 26 (circles). Also, I assigned at least 1 practice section of math.

The student and I had our first session of exam tutoring. She told me that she wanted to focus on mathematics. For our first session we went over a wide variety of topics so I could gauge her current abilities. While she has forgotten a lot, she was quick to pick up on what I was teaching. I think with enough work she can do reasonably well on the test.

The student's final is coming up! We worked through his outline--he had several questions that I was able to explain to him. We did some of the examples in the text as well, to ensure he was thinking about things correctly. He's going to meet with the professor tomorrow to follow up with some spots he had trouble with.
