Cube Counting Practice Test 2

 

Practice Cube Counting Test for the Dental Admission Test (DAT)

Here is a practice Cube Counting Test to simulate an actual Perceptual Ability Test that you would see on a Dental Admissions Test (DAT).

Instructions:

Each figure has been created by cementing cubes together of the same size. The cubes are then painted except for the bottom face of all the cubes. Determine the number of sides painted for each cube. You should give yourself no more than 10 minutes to complete the test to simulate the real Dental Admissions Test (DAT).
