    Sup everyone. I'm an 2009 NYUCD student heading into D2 this september. With school starting for you boys and girls in a couple of weeks, I thought I'll share some 'pointers' or 'tips'.

    First of all, the key of passing is trying. You have to at least try. As long as you try and put in the effort, you'll pass for sure.

    With that out of the way, here's the good part. I call it....

    How to pass D1 with minimal effort.

    Word of advice, this is only good for those who are not interested in specializing. These 'tips' of mine are only good if you're looking for a pass. So if you wanna go for ortho or oral sergeon....getta hell out of this thread.

    Here's another kicker who those don't really know much about dentistry.....you don't need to specialize in ortho to give people braces...;)..winkwink


    Anyway....here are the tips for the first few weeks of class....

    Join the Clubs...the 'ethnic clubs' as some of us call them. KDA (Korean), CSDA (chinese)...and so on.
    Basically, you pay them 5-10 bucks and you get a cd of notes and past exams. It's worth every penny. PLEASE BUY YOUR OWN AND DON"T SHARE. It keeps the clubs going and don't be a cheap ass.

    With the past notes and old exams.....you CAN pass the class without going to class. ;) Don't expect to get an A though. ;) But you MUST PUT IN THE TIME TO LEARN THE NOTES!!!!!!

    Let's just say I know someone who passed everything just by the notes. :D

    Another advice from me is to get to know your classmates asap. Don't be shy...if you are...go have a few drinks and you'll get loosen up :D

    Your classmates will be you greatest resource and studying tool.


    I'll post more 'tips' depending on the number of response. There's no point for me to type all this if no one's gonna read them.


    Bye for now :D

    Disclaimer: the above listed are just my opinions. If you do decide to follow the above, please be advise that the author holds no responsiblity to outcomes that may differ as stated. Please know that going to class and studying is still the best way to pass and do well in school (D1).
