Format: Paperback
This book (2nd ed.) is generally a good overview of topics you should know for part 1. But it has many errors which make me question the validity of the material presented (are there more errors that I'm not catching?)

There are numerous typos including "adduction" instead of "abduction;" page 88 shows a figure of a heart with transposition of the great vessels; however the figure is presented as a normal heart.

page 173 says the outer cortex of lymph nodes have germinal nodes containing T cells. this is wrong.

The germinal follicles actually contain proliferating B cells; T cells are found scattered in the deep cortical zone (paracortex)

on page 174 it says FSH stimulates lactogenesis (milk production), this is not true; milk production is stimulated by prolactin.

definitely read some "real" books before you pick up this one. I hope they fix these glitches in the 3rd ed.

Since there are not many comprehensive NBDE Part 1 review books out there, this book is good for providing an outline on what to study. You definitely need to look up more information to fully learn the material, as some subjects are only touched on, and some information is left out. There are some annoying things: a good amount of typos, and the writers tend to use their own acronyms without explaining what they are. It's almost like you're reading someone's notes from class that made sense to the person who took the notes, but not to you.

This book is a nice run through prior to boards although I would not lean on it as a comprehensive study guide. If you are looking to pass, this is great. If you want the 90's, you can still use this, but don't let it be your only source.

Format: Paperback
Too many errors. Too few useful mnemonics. Some of the lists are poorly organized. Many of the tables are confusing and could be better represented. The info can be disjointed just to make room for pictures and charts. You shouldn't have to piece together or re-arrange the information yourself; otherwise, why buy this book?

How do two accomplished dentists get together and make mistakes on head and neck anatomy, and then create a pneumonic out of it? The branches of the external carotid artery are what I'm referring to. Mixing up the order of the branches, where they go, and then making a mnemonic SALFOPSM out of it is ridiculous. I hope they try to patent that one.

The book is excellent based on its content and has up to the point topic discussions which helps last min. reviews plus the margins of what is to be studied according to what is important for dental students. Excellent shipping with three days delivery. I feel the price could have been slightly less but over all its like having you "piece of cake" for NBDE-1 test takers.I am totally satisfied reading from this book.
Thank you amazon for your business.

The Book is really good for reviewing material throughout the year, not complete though but no book is going to be complete for the boards. Still some typo errors that need to be fixed.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

I started to use this book as a review for my NBDE part 1. One of the only good aspects of this book is the charts in the microbio section. Also, it has a very detailed index so it made looking up a topic easy.

Other than that, there are glaring errors in this book. It's incredibly hard to follow. The pictures in it are useless. You'll just end up looking at an atlas anyways. It's missing a lot of critical information that I think is important to know for part one.

Everyone in my dental class had the exact same opinion of this book. We all thought we wasted our money!

Honestly, I ended up getting Board Busters for NBDE part 1. It was so much better. More organized, well written, concise, and not as many errors (there are a few which is given with any source). Not many people know about it because it's a new source. But definitely worth buying over First Aid and Decks!!!

I wish somewhere in this product they would have stated that the ENTIRE book was highlighted! Do you know how aggravating this is to study from when everything has yellow highlighter over it? Not only that, it makes it near impossible to highlight the parts that you think are important. Secondly the book is falling apart, pages are falling out and I keep loosing them. Its the last thing I need while studying is to be bothered by pages falling out and highlighter everywhere.

At least when I have bought used books from other places they at least screen the books to make sure they A) arent falling apart and B) the whole dang book is not highlighted.

This book should have never been sold to another customer for as much as it was in the condition that it was in.

Highly disappointed with their service and their attention to quality of product.
