DAT Quantitative Reasoning Tutoring FAQ
Any aspiring dental student must first pass the major hurdle of the Dental Admissions Test, or DAT. This exam is among the most critical portions of your dental school application, and your performance can greatly impact your graduate school options. With competition fierce for a seat in any American dental school, an outstanding performance on this test is absolutely essential. You can't let years of hard work in challenging pre-dental classes go to waste because of one bad day on a challenging exam. You owe it to yourself to prepare for this exam in a way that can help you maximize your chances of performing excellently! Most students taking the DAT have been studying hard in a pre-dental curriculum for the past several years. You likely have been seeing such material as advanced chemistry, biology, physics, and biochemistry, and have been asked to interpret complicated laboratory data and to visualize abstract physical phenomena. It is no wonder, then, that many students are surprised when the DAT Quantitative Reasoning Test (QRT) asks questions that look more at home on a high school algebra test than on a test for dental school admissions. Many students panic, and their scores can suffer because the material seems so foreign. A qualified DAT QRT tutor can eliminate the guesswork in preparing for this test and knowing what to expect.
Succeeding on the QRT can give your overall DAT score a major boost. You will be seeing questions that ask you to logically work your way through complicated-looking mathematical formulae, while avoiding pitfalls intentionally included along the way. Your are likely to find the QRT to be the most challenging portion of the exam, with material both complex and fairly foreign to most test-takers. Instead of working blindly through problems on your own, or using a patchwork of internet resources and impersonal review books, consider personal DAT Quantitative Reasoning tutoring. DAT Quantitative Reasoning tutors have taken the DAT QRT and excelled. Not only have these instructors posted among the highest scores in the country, but have an innate ability to communicate complicated ideas to students. This means that each tutor is both an experienced student and a superb teacher, a combination that can help you to get the greatest return on your investment of study time.
When you consider that DAT Quantitative Reasoning tutoring can offer you a one-on-one, truly customized study program for your DAT QRT exam, you might realize that you can't afford to waste any more time on impersonal resources. You may be surprised how quickly you see significant improvement in your knowledge, skills, and confidence level after private tutoring. This is also a much more effective way than prepping yourself, because your instructor has taken the test before and knows how to prepare. There's more to it than knowledge. You also need to be familiar with the test format.
In addition, your tutor can agree to meet at the location of your choice, whether it is in person at a quiet location at school, a coffee shop, a library, or in your own home. You can also choose face-to-face online tutoring. Tutors understand your schedule is full. It is therefore possible to meet after school or work, or whenever is a good time that doesn't conflict with your activities and demands. The primary goal is to ensure you receive adequate DAT Quantitative Reasoning tutoring that prepares you to do your best on an exam that has a lot of weight to it.

Recent DAT Quantitative Reasoning Tutoring Session Notes
At the beginning, we discussed the outlining that she did for the four writing prompts from last time. Following this, we spent time working together on word problems in chapters 16 and 17. I assigned 16 and 17 as well as the first 20 problems of chapter 24 (chart interpretation) and 1-23 in the reading comprehension section as well as 40-67 in the sentence equivalents.
The student and I met for our second session of tutoring. In this session we once again spent most of the time focusing on mathematics questions. The student is quick to grasp concepts, but she is equally quick to doubt her own abilities. I want her confidence to grow so that she will have more trust in her answers. We also spent some of the session on writing. I read over some of her admission essays and we also went over the analyze an argument essay.
We started to go over any of the student's missed questions from his practice test. We've reviewed more or less all of the math concepts covered in the GRE. He hasn't needed as much help with the verbal section, but we did discuss strategies for dealing with the reading passages. Lastly, we spent some time covering how to write a convincing cover letter and personal essay. He is prepared for the GRE. His writing and math skills have improved greatly.
We covered number properties concepts and did examples for each concept. The student also has several examples to work through before our next session. He seems to have a good grasp on everything that we covered tonight. Before our next session, he will do a practice test so we can get a baseline of his progress through our sessions.
The student did a lot of practice problems in algebra since our last meeting. We reviewed the problems that he had questions on step-by-step to identify concepts or math conventions that he needed to learn. Most of the challenging questions were word problems, so we discussed strategies for converting word problems into algebraic equations that can be solved. He made good improvement in algebra since the last session. He is also working on his vocab in preparation for the verbal sections. This week he will review the arithmetic and geometry practice tests, so we can go over these next time. I pointed him to the free math practice questions on a website for an alternative resource for extra practice.
We continued to work on strategies for dealing with essay prompts. We focused especially on particular strategies for breaking down a prompt, devising a workable thesis, and coming up with subjects for body paragraphs. Before our next session, the student's going to work on drafting an essay based on one of the prompts we discussed.
