Day2 (part1) special condition national board exam
National board dental exam part 1

National board dental exam part 1 (4hours)

Definetly the 2 hour version. It's way easier.

The only option for us is the full nbde exam which is 7 hrs long with an optional hour break.
The total test duration is 8 hrs.

The reason that I confused is there are so many options in step of scheduling.

I just want to take a new format exam of NBDE. So I posted the email to ADA.org, they sent a reply unless I am a partial examminer of NBDE, I should select "National Board Dental Examination part1"

Other options are NO meaning to Newly format examiner.

If you should take all subject of NBDE, select "National board dental examination Part1" not 2hours or 4hours or 6.5hours etc (even there isn't 8hours option)
