I think the DentistHusband and Organic are the best suited members to answer your questions Jojoz. In the mean time, try to read the FAQ thread, where Scott has shared some good info on the bench test.

btw, I do know CA board doesn't care about scores, as long as you've passed both boards. So that should give you some rest....

Good luck!

the pool of possible candidates have already been set, the only qualification is that you have to pass both part1 and part2 before Dec 2003. you should invest some time doing a search in the forum and read old threads regarding to the Bench exam. The info is all out there.

DBC won't give out any application until the bill is passed and signed. Until now, officially, there is no more Bench exam and you can't ask for an application package.

you need to do a bit of homework by yourself.

check DBC website and there will be updated info
