Could someone tell me what exactly are the NBDE's? What are the major exams that are taken at dental school? Is there one at the end of every year? I heard something along those lines and that they are cummalative.

okay so i am answering my own question after doing a bit of searching :rolleyes: . but for those of you who dont know:
NBDE are national board exams that are taken after your 2nd year. it pretty much covers everything you learned your first two years, but i think mostly text stuff and not lab. it seems like one very big and detailed DAT exam. not looking forward to it. :eek:

Some schools take the NBDE after the first year. I dont remember which ones though.
