Will Bootcamp help me with the CDAT (Canadian DAT)?
Short answer: Yes!
Students have found DAT Bootcamp very helpful in studying for the Canadian DAT for the sciences, perceptual ability section, and reading comprehension. There is a lot of overlap between the American and Canadian DAT, which is why students are finding us resourceful in their preparation for the Canadian DAT.
What are the differences between the Canadian and American DAT?
To start, there are a few key differences between the Canadian and American DAT:
- The Canadian DAT does not test organic chemistry or math.
- In place of organic chemistry and math, the Canadian DAT tests manual dexterity, where the student is required to carve a piece of soap according to some schematic.
- The Canadian DAT is administered twice a year, once in February and once in November.
The Canadian DAT and American DAT cover the exact same material in the biology and general chemistry sections (1). Given that DAT Bootcamp has developed high quality questions for the American DAT, Canadian students have found they translate very well for preparing for the Canadian DAT.
