I've been shopping around for dental decks (part 1). Some of my upper classmen have told me that older decks are still ok to study from, especially since they tend to be cheaper, but I was wondering - how old is too old? Would getting decks from 2004-2005 be a big mistake? How about 2006-2007?

Except for the prophylactic antibiotic recommendations, things haven't change much in dentistry the past 10 years to alter my treatment in any way.

I have 2004-2005 and 2006-2007 AND 2009.....to be honest, I would go with any one of them. The main difference I noticed is they change the color of the subjects, that's about it.

The advantage of 2006-2007 over 2004 is that the 2006-2007 have the new clinical vignettes.

No big difference between 2009 and 2007 other than color.
Hope that helps.
