    After getting 88,i got my first interview call from boston
    its been a hard long walk,BUT was worth it
    Iam planning to help any one and everyone out there,it was a long process had no guidance.
    if u guys wanna discuss any subject,we can do starting with wat to study ,to type of ques asked in each subject,the books to refer
    Dental decks is not enough,its bull**** to think so.

    congratulations on your score! I was just wondering that if at minimum I only study the decks, would I be able to pass? Thanks for all your help!

    Congrats, I am really hoping I can score as high as your score! I am half way through the Kaplan main book and Dental decks. I was wondering whether it is better to read First aid along with my Kaplan book now or later in the REVISION! and according to your experience, are the 20 years old released exams as important? or I shall only do the recenet ones?

    Thank you so much for your cooperation!

    U NEED STRONG BASICS
    I WOULD RECOMEND USMLE LECTURE NOTES FOR STARTERS
    THEN BUILD IT UP WITH OKESON AND WHEELERS
    TOP UP WITH THE ASDA BANK
    EXTRAS WOULD INCLUDE
    first aid,kaplan review [its too much for anat,too less for biochem physio]
    guyton for endocrine esp insulin,glucagon and excretory
    anat do upper limbs,
    okeson for tmj

    HEY GUYS NO PMs PLEASE

    I don't know if anybody has used it, but if you have...do you think that the kaplan question bank is helpful? Are the questions similar to board questions or are they completely different? I just don't to waste a lot of time doing them if they won't really help that much. Thanks.

    KAPLAN Q BANK IS a waste for part 1 ,but for perhaps,DA
    it is on a higher level which is not needed
    BUT FOR NBDE PART2 THE KAPLAN Q BANK IS MOST USEFULL

    Congrates,you finally made it.I really envy you.I am still struggling to make it .I have a question for you.When you were preparing for the nbde 1,what textbooks did you use?Is kaplan review and dental decks all that sufficient?Also did you have a job when you where preparing for nbde1.For me apart from my studies,i got to pay bills,so i work in a nursing home and that kind of makes me tired.Should i stop working and concentrate on reading?I really want to know how to pass it this time as you did.Would appreciate any advice from you.Thanks.

    Life is not easy my friend,but remember tough times dont last tough people do.
    if u can sit at home for 2 months,u will crack the exam and get on with being a dentist here.
    Dental decks can help u pass,if thats wht u are looking at
    if u want 85 plus u need to do more
    we are discussing the best possible books and studyin patterns in this thread

    functional anatomy is the best place to start
    muscles of mastigation...action,inserton and attachment
    tmj disorders ,mand movements
    there are 30 ques which are asked from here.
    the questions are not hard if u understand them,
    i suggest srt with structural anatomy of TMJ every inch with muscle insertiona and actions ,then move on to disorders,occlusal theraph

    Hey thanx a lot, what you are doing is a big help.
    I have already read kaplan review once, I am about to re-read at least anatomic science and biochemistry that are my weakest subjects.
    I also have USMLE kaplan lecture, but i have not read them yet, because i thought they are too much. What do you suggest? kaplan USMLE? or kaplan NBDE ?
    Also, what do you suggest to study for patho section?

    Kaplan usmle histology is too good and u get20-25 ques from histology
    do head and neck from this imp ant ,post triangle
    ,embry the first 4 chapters
    skip the last section on neuroanatomy not needed,just do ANS
    as also the section on hernia...avoid
    do upper limb ,muscles ,blood supply from BRS or usmle
    and finally portal circulation,CSF,carotid ,abdom aorta and suclavian artery with branches in detail,contents of mediastinum.
    u are now assured of 85 plus
    Good Luck

    3 months are more than enough for retaking,u cannot sustain the momentum more than that,8 hrs are cool and u can top it up to 10 during last 2 weeks
    For biochem usmle lectures notes are good to start with ,if u can get hold of the lecture tapes nothing like it.
    The disadvantage of usmle lecture notes is basics of fats ,carbohydrates and proteins not given in detail,u can do these 3 chapters from lipppencort
    Cycles and mol biochem usmle tapes are good and understandable
    1 week with lecture notes ,3 days for basics from lippencort and 1 week revision,u should be good in biochem.
    lastly do the asda bank and decks for a review,4+4 hrs one day should be enough.
    Good Luck.

    look into sangers dna tecn

    Hi
    you seem to have all the material to get high score,maybe the effort was missing,anyways dont be depressed, start again 3 months effort...
    since u have the videos,i suggest u srt with them maybe biochem and anatomy for srts,and correlate with the lecture notes.
    do the ques at the end of each lecture.
    revise decks and q bank everyday for 3 hrs and study full time.
     
  48. Can anyone tell me the way to obtain those kaplan videos without registering the course at Kaplan? Did you guys obtain these mentioned videos online or sth ? Thanks .
