Hello..

People have been saying that the exam is getting tough, but if you prepare nicely,it should not be a problem. I used Kaplan notes, Nbde first aid, dental decks and asda released papers for my preparation. To be honest, I did not use much of Kaplan notes but consulted my regular bds books when in doubt. I really concentated on decks and released exams for my preparation but I know for a fact that kaplan notes are very good and useful and I should have used them too. So if u use these books, u should be good. Good luck for your preparation!!
