    Your notes and textbooks are actually a great resources. It may have more in depth material than the boards warrant, but you are a lot more familiar with your own notes and that'll help you recall information you thought you forgot.

    Around feb or march you can start using boards specific material to get a feel of the level of difficulty boards questions are compared to your class. I wouldn't buy very many "boards prep" books because they most likely will have the same info already found in your notes/textbooks. Instead you wanna use things that will familiarize you with the style and format of the boards questions in addition to building your knowledge base. Things like previous exams, boards prep apps, or dental decks are good for that.

    Hi, i jst studied the caapid directory, it closes feb 15th, dts few days frm now, therfore if u re planning to take the exam in april, it ll be closed already. amnt sure wen it re-opens but its smtime befor may/june, so u may be able to apply in the 2nd phase as against next year admission into advanced dental placement. i plan to take my exams in june to give me enough time to study and research more on the school to apply for after ve passed, that time caapid must ve re-opened.

    Shruti, you will need all around 3 months to prepare for the part-1. So start with kaplan review books then decks and then question bank if u have but kaplan decks must.

    Kaplan reviewer
    Rudman's part.
    Please share your study method how should I start to which part and which study material. I am pretty stuck where to start and what is next. Should I finish all anatomy first then go to microbiology or what!? I m pretty confused what to do.... Please help me easy way to get there. Any advise I would be grateful. I m sure you all were in my shoes.

    Is there any newer years study material on PDF file?

    Hi guys!!! I took the exam last year, and unfortunately failed at 74%. :(( the bad thing is I can't remember any questions because it's been 7mos and I really got discouraged because I'm not used to failing. I just started reading dental decks again, but this time I'll go through it maybe twice. It's a lesson learned, really. If you guys wanna pass you have to want it in your heart and do everything you can to pass. Be sure to always have a good night sleep and healthy diet, I was having tummy pains when I took my exam, i'm not sure why but the only thing I ate was McDonalds before exam.

    Let's motivate each other here! And let's share are progress with studying and in that way we can pressure others to study harder too! Hehehehe! I need some motivation and pressure right now, I'm really having a hard time studying for this exam over again.
