2016 Changes to DAT Biology

In early 2016, the ADA announced that they would not institute the DAT changes that had been under consideration over the past 3 years: "Please note that all DAT content changes indicated in Volumes 4 and 5 of the DAT Newsletters will no longer be implemented. This includes changes to the Biology, Quantitative Reasoning, and Critical Thinking sections.

Can't I use MCAT books instead?

There are many important DAT Biology topics that are either not on the MCAT or are so rare as MCAT questions that the topics are not properly covered in MCAT books. Here is a partial list: photosynthesis and plant biology, genetic technology, animal behavior and learning, population and community ecology, ecosystems, social behaviors of animals, etc. The Gold Standard DAT was designed specifically for the DAT so all ADA topics are presented in color followed by chapter review questions, answers and explanations.
