This reply maybe a bit late ----- but anyways -
for AFK exam, you should go through the dental decks thoroughly , also a set of NBDE preparation books,
then you should go through the released questions from the NDEB website.
Hope this helps.

Hi Ndeb 2015, could you break it in details?
I plan to sit the AFK in 2016 but have no idea where to start and how to start.
Does that mean I should purchase Dental Deck (1+2) and review the books at the same time? NDBE website recommended more than 150 books for reading and I don't think I need to go through every book, please would you give me some details? I live in Europe and found this website.
Please help me on how to start preparation of AFK.
Thanks a lot! Really really appreciate your help!!!

By NDBE books I mean the books with study material for NDBE part 1 and part 2, since there is no particular book aiming at NDEB Canada you have to use the NDBE books meant for the USA exams, I hope this makes sense.
so first of all you will need dental decks 1 and 2, buy them new or second hand. go through them thoroughly expecially part 2. don't waste too much of your time on part 1 as they are very vast and you need to select which topics are exam important and focus on those.
then side by side cover these topics from NDBE books, example MOSBY NDBE part 1 and 2,
then you move to the released questions on NDEB official website, solve these questions yourself as they do not provide answers, this will give you an idea of your weak topics and the pattern of AFK exam.
the recommended books are for your guidance, suppose you are weak in a topic or cant find the answer to a question you can go to the related book in the list and find your answer, you don't need to read all of them.
