Hi, docs! Anyone here taking the Assessment of Clinical Skills for Canadian NDEB in June 2013?

Just wanted to start a thread/support forum as we get ready to challenge the exam.

Please share tips/advice/suggestions here.

Thanks for sharing!

Does anyone remember what credit cards the NDEB accepts to pay for exam fees? Do they take American Express? I am trying to make sure I have enough available on my credit card to pay for my exam.
Thanks, all!

I have cleared clinical skill in first trial last year and I am running my clinical skill training centre in Gujarat, India. I would be happy to help all here.
Where did you get the handpieces and other instrument for the assessment? Did you rent or buy them?

We learned how to do an almost ideal amalgam restoration in class.The techniques were amazing, I don't know why I was wasting my time with the techniques in the books. These little tricks were so useful. The video demos shows how perfect the final product came out!"pls msg me in private.

I haven't heard any feedback about tccds so cant say about that (just googled tccds, its pretty new on the scene).
As for the prep course at UBC, as you may have already read on their website it is of a very limited duration and expensive.
The reading material they will provide with the lectures is pretty good I've heard but the only concern is how much will you learn in just a couple of days.
If you have already attended another training for a month or so then you can go to UBC for an additional training. but I wouldn't advise it as a stand alone as you need a lot of practice to get the procedures right. It has to be practice + feedback...........so joining a course for a month would be better in my opinion because then you get more time to fine tune your skills and get feedback over a longer period of time thus helping you improve.
The UBC course is great for people who have already got the basics right and are looking for additional training. They have a great facility and staff.
Don't go for training there just because you're giving exam there, they do have a 4hr introductory session a few days before the exam for you to go and work on the chairs and get used to them. you have to pay around $250-$300 for that and seats fill up pretty quickly.
