    From ada.org

    "The National Board Dental Exam Part I is usually taken after two years of dental school. It consists of four examinations on the basic biomedical sciences titled:

    Anatomic Sciences
    Biochemistry-Physiology
    Microbiology-Pathology
    Dental Anatomy and Occlusion
    Each of the four Part I examinations consists of approximately 100 multiple-choice test items. Beginning in 2007, Part I will be a comprehensive exam with 400 muliple-choice items. Approximately 20 percent of the items will be grouped into testlets with interdisciplinary focus and clinical application.

    Specifications for the National Board Dental Examination Part I appear in the written National Board Dental Examination Candidate Guide. "

    I called the ADA yesterday asking more about this new format and how to prepare for it.....The lady says the info is in their web site......WHERE???? there is nothing there!!!! I guess they think that your experience as a dentist would prepare you for the clinical vignetes but still I would like to see the style of the questions.... :mad:

    :mad: It is sooooo frustrating calling to the ADA.... :mad: The woman also told me that I could take 2 times the computer based and the written test...so, I asked her: Do you mean I would be able to take it 3 times this year if need it?
    And then she says: Yeah....I THINK SO............????????? :mad:
