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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 just because I didn't expect it to be so written on. But overall, good purchase. Thanks!

It is hard to find a single page in this book that does not have a typo, an editing error, or a lay-out or spacing error. I could have easily overlooked all of that, but the amount of misinformation in this book is astounding. If you are taking boards and need a good overview, look elsewhere. This is not meant, as they state, to be a stand-alone study source but merely a supplemental overview. If on the test, however, you only remember a fact from this book and don't remember seeing it elsewhere, you might have studied the wrong material!

Do not do not do not buy. Not worth the money NOR the wasted time.
