What is the DAT Destroyer?

The DAT Destroyer is a DAT exam prep book written by Dr. Romano from the Orgoman team. This book focuses on helping provide students with everything they need to crack their examination. In each section of the book, users will find various multiple-choice questions to provide enough practice to face the real test confidently. The book is a practice guide, helping students to sharpen their knowledge as they prepare for the DAT.

The book includes: Organic Chemistry, General Chemistry, Biology, Math and Quantitative Reasoning

DAT Destroyer additionally includes some tips for overcoming each subject contained in the DAT. Book users have access to questions and problems similar to previous DAT examinations and additional free resources to utilize with the book.

About the Author

Dr. Jim “Orgoman” Romano is the author of the Destroyer books as well as founder and head instructor at Romano Scientific. He holds two degrees in Organic Chemistry and Dental Surgery from the University of Miami and New York University, respectively.

Dr. Romano studied extensively under world famous chemists, such as Drs. Mills, Hare, Eschegoyen, Schultz, Oratz and Bartolotti, and is considered one of the best organic chemists worldwide.

After completing his education, rather than pursuing a career as an oral surgeon, Dr. Romano came to realize his true passion was found in helping students understand the sciences. In 2006, Dr. Romano and Orgoman co-founder Nancy Steen, combined their passions and expertise and began publishing the most comprehensive and effective prep books for the DAT & OAT – helping students excel and score high on their exams for over 15 years.

Advice from Dr. Romano

From my experience of teaching general chemistry, organic chemistry and physics for over 30 years – the two major obstacles students face when taking exams are:

(1) running out time and
(2) not having a sound foundation in the concepts.

Know the Destroyer Cold; everything is on target to Destroy the DAT exam.

Our prep books will help you build a good foundation in the basic sciences. However, there are no “DAT SECRETS”. Ask any oral surgeon, periodontist, or prosthodontist about secrets to achieve success, and I am sure that they will agree that there is only hard work, perseverance, dedication, and proper preparation.

The DAT Destroyer is geared for the most serious student, not for students looking for an easy way out or a miracle to occur. The questions are slightly more difficult, but the explanations are very detailed and clear. Practicing these solutions will allow you to handle a wide-range of potential questions, getting you ready to achieve a high score on the DAT.

Focus on the material and understand the concept. THINK 30!

Look no further in your studies for the DAT/OAT. There's no place better, period. Learned everything I needed and more for the DAT and scored a 22 because of Dr. Romanos and Professor Barengolts guidance. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't find Orgoman.

I initially signed up for the online course with Dr. Romano and Denis and it was extremely helpful compared to other resources. On top of the online course, I also did private tutoring with Denis, which I found to be immensely helpful because it was personalized to my needs. Denis is the only DAT tutor that I would rely on to get a good DAT score. He constantly pushed me to do better, while throughly explaining concepts that I was confused on. Dr. Romano and Denis make a great team and will do everything they can to insure that you get a good score on the DAT. Follow their study plan and work hard, and I am sure you all will do great like I did.

I tutored with Denis Barengolts for General Chemistry 1 & 2 as well as Organic Chemistry. Denis was a great professor and truly passionate about making sure I understood each topic. Denis also emailed me the notes from each session which was a major plus as I could always refer back to them. Overall, it was a very positive experience and I would definitely recommend Denis.

I don’t think there’s anything else out there that can better prepare you for the OAT/DAT the way Dr. Romano’s material and Denis’ lectures do! I am thankful for them, and I believe anyone who pursues a the journey with them, will be thankful too!

Dr. Romano and professor Denis are the best I've ever had. concepts were clearly expressed and well organised, easy to follow, I received all the help I need during the lecture and even outside the lecture just through Facebook. they put significant effort into making sure students understood the subjects. a lot practice questions especially the FB study group, amazing! based on my experience, the first thing they care about is your success and your score, and you can tell that they are trying to give you the best they can.

Out of all my years of being in undergrad, I can single-handly say that Denis Barengolts has been one of the best tutors I have ever had. Dr Romano is also amazing within his own right, but Denis' simplicity in being able to translate any information is beyond phenomenal. Anything that took me weeks/months to grasp in undergrad by an actual professor, took me hours with Denis. This place is an amazing investment, confidence booster, and most importantly, a family who will push you beyond your limits.

This was by far the best tutoring I have ever received. Denis made sure to always make lectures and materials very clear. I was very pleased to be able to take a course through him and would offer it to anyone who needed assistance. He was very caring and always helped with any questions you ever had. Overall a fantastic experience.

I took the summer DAT course and worked with Denis one on one. Denis is an amazing professor and helped me so much with doing well on the DAT. There's so much material on this exam but the help that I've received from the program and tutoring made the test taking so much more manageable. I loved that Denis was very straightforward with presenting the material and provided an enormous amount of practice problems for me to solidify concepts in both organic and general chemistry.

Denis is an amazing tutor who really does know how to help. I took the MCAT course and I can say a big reason I felt confident taking the test was because of Denis.

I don’t know what else I can say, except that working with Dr. Romano and Denis Barengolts was the best decision I ever made. I made the mistake of not using Destroyer the first time, hence my re take. However, interacting in the FB study group and getting tutoring from Professor Barengolts helped earn my score! I cannot thank them enough, and if you are wondering if you should invest in the products and tutoring..you absolutely need to. You won’t regret it!!
