Hi,
I am planning to appear for part 1 exam in July 2004 and started studying from yesterday. Is it sufficient if I study decks and previous papres only?

hey shresta,
dental decks and previous papers are amust need for the boards. but whether they r enough to get a good score really depends on ur knowledge of the basic sciences and DADH. brush up ur knowledge on the subjects frm textbooks also. u dont have go into a lot of details. just identify certain topics which u think needs some studying, and go through thm.read the part1 threads . they have some great information thr.
i havent seen the kaplan book myself , but i have heard its good. check it out.

Study 8-9 hrs everyday and take a break on sunday. That's what I did, I had only 3 months to prepare too.

If you have the will, then there's always a way. :)
I admire your persistance. I am sure it'll be a lot easier for you this time, what took you 3wks to finish will take you less than a week now. Just remember to stay focused.
Good Luck.

hey shreshta...this is not to brag...but i started for my part 1 last year (dated 14th july) somewhere in mid-late may and could easily do it to an 89..(though sometimes i feel i could have started earlier to farther than this score...)so you are so much ok and very normal! you dont even need to give this topic any more importance!
part 1 is so much yuck to study and i feel its pretty tough for human beings to bear the studies for too long..so i guess anything less than 3 months would be a good time to start.
all the best!:)
