    Hi everybody,
    I was wondering if there's anyone who is preparing to take the Canadian Eligibilty Exam in May or September this year? Would love to share preparation and study information with you all.

    hi shelly,i am a canadian pr ,and is totally confused in deciding wether i should take us ndbe or canadian ee. since canadian discourage foreign grads so i am more inclined in taking us ndbe.seats are very few and the exams r valid for just 2 years on contrary to us ndbe.but anyways i am preparing so would ya like to join me in preps.
    take care bye.

    Do you mean, University Of manitoba don't require you to take the eligibility Exam..I thought that it is mandatory to take that exam in Canada before any university even consider your application..

    Please share with us your experince..

    thanks

    Hi wcl , deepa,
    I'm sorry for not responding earlier,after having started the thread myself,but was just too tied up with other stuff. Anyways,I was wondering what are the study materials you used(wcl) / are using(deepa) to prepare? I'm just preparing with the aid of Part 2 and part 1 dental decks with more emphasis on part 2. I don't know if ASDA reprints of part 1 and part 2 examinations are useful . Are exam reprints of the EE exam available at all? wcl, did you apply to UBC as well? Looking forward to more interaction with you all.

    hi shelly78,
    the prep material i used to prepare for the ee exams are mostly the same as for the american ndb exams
    -dental decks
    -reprints from the american ndb exams
    also in addition
    go thru the reprints on the ndeb.ca website
    the last time i gave the exam, I felt a lot of questions were repeated from the reprints

    I did apply to UBC but was not selected for the interview....they have a very strict protocol for the interview...if you plan to apply to ubc I suggest you get on the case as soon as possible as you will need to provide lot of original documents from your school and past dental association plus orignal letters of recommendation sent by the person writing you the reference

    all the best
    wcl

    Thanks for your help wcl. The ndb.ca website has sample questions for the eligibility exam (about 30 or so). Is that what you were referring to?

    Hey woeser,
    Yup , a lot of the questions were repeated,many from the 30 sample questions also. Do the part 2 decks well and brush up on anatomy. You should be fine. Good luck.

    Hey woeser,
    You can buy the originals from the website dentaldecks.com, (I think that's the website) . Alternatively, you can search numerous student forums where people are always selling them. This is one. You can make a quick search on the net .You'll have all your answers. Good luck

    Hi all,
    Just got the results of the Eligibility exam. I got 81. Is that good enough or not quite? Any input would be appreciated.

    Hi all ,
    I haven't still landed in Canada as a PR but i am thinking of taking the EE next Septmeber 2005 , Do you think I should start studying now or is it still too early , I just finished a diploma in conservative dentistry and it was a real chance to refresh my Anatomy,physiology,oral pathology,oral histology,dental materials,Endodontics,Fixed Prosth. and Operative .
    I know there's sill a lot to add up to what i've studied but i guess i have time till next September .
    Now , I have a couple of Questions ..
    1. If i pass the EE and I still haven't got my PR , Is there a university that accepts the admission of foreign trained Dentists who are not permenant residents of Canada ?
    2.Do you recommend applying to universities that grant a degree or do you think that there's no serious difference "career wise"

    Waiting for your reply ,
    Thanks in advance
    Shiko

    hi guys
    i live in canada like you guys
    i gave eligibility exams last year and have saved many papers from the past exams released on their website
    if you want i can email you all the papers
    since i got admission at ucsf this year, I am not trying anymore for canadian universities
    but i would gladly give you all the papers i have saved on my computer which i think will be very useful because when i gave it last time ,almost 80% were repeated from those papers
    so you can send me private message with your email address and i will definately send you attachments of the past papers
