Can't I use MCAT books instead?

There are many important DAT General and Organic Chemistry 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: general chemistry laboratory techniques and glassware, alkene, alkyne, ether and aromatic chemistry, multi-step organic syntheses, 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.
