yeah i gave my exam on saturday,and it was tough..
many of the questions were really straight forward and i could answer them quickly,some i didn't even knew and some were tricky,u know u know them but can't decide what answer should be best..
there were very little tooth histology questions,only about 2-3..so i can't really say what to revise iwk before the exam..i think just keep preparing and whatever u are studying be thorough with it..b/c i made a lot of mistakes with the topics which i had studied nicely..
soooooo don't be afraid..go with confidence,whatever happens is in the fate but i think we should know all the subjects really thoroughly b/c thats how the test was made..covering all the aspects..
soooo BEST OF luck to all of you out there..and please pray for me too..:)
and i studied mostly from NBDE first aid book and decks,and i think thats the best book b/c almost everything is in there,we just have to keep our eyes open..:)

Don't worry, you will be fine.
Some of my friends felt the same way after the exam and got scores above 90. They worked hard and deserved it but were quite unsure about their performance after the exam. So, just sit and wait for now.
I am taking the exam in a month. Do you have any good advice on what imp. topics to cover in the last 1 month.? Thanks again.

Thankyou for the prayers i will need those..:)
i suppose i can't point out the important topics,but i would say memorize the anatomy topics(like insertion of muscles and nerve innervation),imp micro organisms and viruses and bone diseases from patho..
i studied for 2mon seriously and didn't use kaplan much..i used FIRST AID..and i think its enough..
scenarios were pretty simple and common too like DM,Bell's palsy and trisomy 21..i found them the easiest b/c atleast i had some history to corelate too..
and what else should i say,keep studying and expect all kind of questions..
BEST OF LUCK to everyone who is preparing these exam,i know its tough time..:)
