hey dentistjpr...Well i gave my exam on 20th of dec and honestly i did not see any repeats infact the questions were very conclusion based, not a lot of direct questions as in which bacteria causes this...or something like that. My questions had a lot of.....what will happen to the person if so and so goes wrong and it was'nt even like directly related to disease but like secondary effects of the disease. i found it very tough.
What about yours?
u mean u didnt hve any repeats frm past exams?
were ur testlets diff..
my exam is in 5 days..n i m getting really tensed..whr should i concentrate more..
well, i did not really see any repeats but that does not mean you should not do the papers. Each paper is different but i would say read your theory well. It is important that you understand the concept well for eg...the oxygen dissociation curve, The decks explain few reason of the curve shifting to right or left now the question in exam might be more on the level where you have to connect the given scenario of the question to the those reasons that affect the curve. Say increase in pH affects the curve, so how would kidney failure or diabetes mellitus affect the oxygen dissociation. TMJ very imp...muscles of larynx, pharynx and mastication...origin,insertion, nerve artery vein everything. LEARN THE ANATOMY OF EVERY TOOTH WELL ATLEAST WHAT SEPERATES THEM FROM THE REST and the anomalies like which tooth mightbe absent most often, might have 2 roots, primary tooth that is most rone to be impacted.
I found this presentation very useful for DA.
i FOUND IT ONLINE....
Hope this helps.
