As dental students know, you can’t fake your way through the Natural Sciences section of the DAT: either you have the knowledge on test day, or you don’t. This session will go over methods of not only learning that information, but retaining it as well. You’ll learn how to harness technology to study in the most effective and efficient ways, and will have the opportunity to ask high-scoring dental students for their advice. At the end of the session, attendees will be provided with a coupon code for Memorang and ASDA’s DAT study tool.

Presenter:  Dr. Yermie Cohen, MD, founder & CEO, Memorang

Don’t let the DAT get you down! With a few simple strategies, several sections of the DAT can easily be broken down. This webinar will specifically look at two sections that are less familiar: the PAT and reading comprehension. Join our panelists as they dissect practice questions using common and lesser-known strategies. Panelists will also share general test taking tips so that you’ll be prepared to dominate the DAT.
