This section of PAT may be the easiest section on the practice tests. On the real test, however, it is the hardest. Why? Because on the real test, the angles differ by very few degrees. So don’t be fooled by the practice tests that this section is easy. For this section, basically, there is really only one thing you could do to do well. It is really simple, yet overlooked. It is to look really closely. I have read some people suggesting to look from far. To me, this makes no sense. Two really similiar angles should look more similiar and similiar as you view it farther and farther. So when you are having trouble deciding which angle is bigger/smaller, look at one angle really closely and then look at the other one. Then based on your best judgement, decide which angle is bigger and smaller. I think this is the only legitimate thing to do for this section.
1. DAT Achiever. Their angle ranking problems are harder than the other practice tests.
2. Barron’s How to Prepare for the Dental Admissions Test (Dat) Another decent DAT book that has good angle ranking problems although not as good as DAT Achiever’s
3. *** STRONGLY RECOMMENDED*** Crack DAT PAT for the Dental Admission Test . Never tried it myself because I never knew this product existed at the time I was preparing for my DAT. But I have heard alot of good things about this product. So give it a try!
EDIT: PEOPLE HAVE BEEN COMMENTING THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PRACTICE FOR THE PAT SECTION. IT’S A MUST FOR PEOPLE WHO WANTS TO ACE THE PAT SECTION.
4. Kaplan DAT 2008-2009 Edition (with CD-ROM) (Kaplan Dat (Dental Admission Test)). Their angle ranking problems are way easier than the real ones. You should be getting perfect on these. At least 14/15.
If you still need extra problems, you can make some of your own. Have someone make you some angle ranking problems using a protractor.
