2019 NBDHE

I attended the Dental Hygiene Seminars 2019 NBDHE review this weekend in Chicago, but I had to leave a day early, and now I am questioning how to structure a good study plan. I am taking my boards on March 19th, and am not planning on working for an entire month prior, to allow myself ample time to study. I am going to start looking over the book a little each week from now until the end of February, and then I plan on doing some intense studying all day, every day, for the last month before I actually take my exam. Do you think a month is long enough to study from the review book, and in your experience, do you know if the review book has enough information in it for me to do well on boards if that is all I study from?

Thanks!

I took the NBDHE two years ago & also attended the seminar prior to it. I thought the book itself was plenty helpful enough. I read through it multiple times in prep for boards yet still felt completely unprepared & was sure I failed but I didn’t! Passed with flying colors! I think a month is plenty of time. But prepare yourself to feel unprepared & defeated. I haven’t talked to one person who felt good about the exam but they all passed. You will do fine, just stick to the review book! It’s awesome!

Hey! I took the NBDHE last year and the thing that helped the most was taking practice NBDHE exams online and usually they break down the questions into the categories so I made a list of the subjects I struggled with the most to one easiest ones for me and made a plan to study the hard ones the longest and add easier subjects in every week. I found that helped me a lot since there is so much information. Focus on what you struggle with first and hit that harder with study. Everyone feels like they failed and find out they did amazing. It sounds like you are going to be well prepared! Good luck!
