    hey guys the nbde part 1 syl includes thorax, limbs, abdomen and pelvis.which book is good for those? i have the kaplan material, an old edition, is it ok to read those from that? plz let me know
     
  11. I would say you need more time to prepare,dental decks are pretty good if you have a GOOD number of years...just know them by heart!good luck
