Personally I felt the Dental Decks helped some, but I couldn't rely totally on them. After my class took the NBDE Pt1 in July, my impression is that a lot of materials in the exam, particularly in the anatomical sciences, weren't covered by the decks (at least not to the level of detail on the exam).
I would look at old NBDE exams as well as generally reviewing some of the critical areas you know they will sure as heck ask questions on (such as muscles and AVNs in the head and neck, etc.).
The only part of NBDE I thought were cakewalks was Dental Anatomy (which for the most part is common sense).
Thank you for your prompt reply. I am using text books and for the last month prior to the test I'll take several " mock tests", just to get used to the test design as well as focusing for that amount of time...you know you study 40 minutes here, one hour there...and then at the day of the test you "don't know" why you feel so tired.
