4.0 out of 5 stars.  worth it, May 19, 2009
By K. Heller
I believe this book really helped me for my board exam. This was the only book I used to review for the test, it has many review quizzes, a mock board at the end, and case study tests. I was happy with my score :)

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Kaplan National Dental Hygienist Liscensure Exam, June 02, 2008
By FG
I checked out several board review books my first semester in hygiene school before I found one I wanted to buy. Most of the books were full of too much information that overwhelmed me. I have to say this book was the best book to comprehend information during school and preparing for the exam. I read the whole book during spring break and scored very high. The book is very organized and easy to read. I keep it at my office to refer to when I have questions about special needs pts or pathology. I would recommend this book to every hygiene student!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great as a last minute supplement, May 24, 2008
By Cranky when hungry
I used this book in conjunction with Mosby's review- I like Mosby, but let me tell you something- it's very dense and tiring to study from. Kaplan's review is shorter and a much easier read- I used this book when Mosby got too overwhelming and even until right before the test- and I scored some of the highest in my class on some of the categories- So I really do recommend this book ESP for crammers like myself who need a quick fix. Overall my totalscore was about an 88% so I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great tips on taking the boards!, August 21, 2006
By JerseyTomato
True this book does have inaccuracies, but I also found these in the much touted Dental Hygiene Study Decks. It may be impossible to find any non-fiction book without some inaccuracies, textbooks included! I've heard several questions are thrown out each year from the board exam because of inaccuracies.

The information is presented thoroughly and very clearly, with key points of a paragraph in bold. Considering review books from the standpoint of having already taken (and passed!) the National Boards, I found this book and High Yield Facts Dental Hygiene (Demetra, Daskalos,Logothetis authors), to be among the most helpful. I did not have the Mosby's book, so I cannot judge where this one stands in relation to it. Kaplan was much more helpful to me than the Saunders Review.

The Overview section of this book may be the most valuable and separates it from other DH review books. It provides helpful tips on how to answer certain kinds of questions on the board exam, (do you know what an "umbrella question" is and how to answer it? How about a `distractor question?') Also included: info on how the test is scored, how to prepare for the exam, and test taking strategies. This is very helpful information, as understanding how to approach a question may help you answer it correctly. The boards aren't just about knowing the correct answer, they are about knowing how to choose the correct answer from those offered. If you are not a good multiple choice test taker, or a nervous test taker, then this section of the book will be immensely helpful to you and, quite possibly worth the price of the book.

I also enjoyed the uncluttered layout of the information. Everything you need to know is there, just not in twenty page, demoralizing, soul sucking, dry as the Sahara regurgitations. Excellent section review tests as well as a full length board to practice. Buy this one. You won't be sorry.

3.0 out of 5 stars.  Looks nice; but I don't trust it, July 14, 2006
By Diane
Found a few errors by p.26 (eg. cardiac is voluntary, skeletal is involuntary?!). These may be isolated instances, but I think the editor should have caught this stuff! Also, some basic biological concepts could be better explained. It's a nice concept and layout, but more images would help, and with the errors...well, as a student, I just don't trust this text to be accurate, and I don't feel I can rely on it for studying! Hopefully, the author and publisher will go back to the drawing board and make some improvements for the next edition. My school has recommended the Mosby book, and so I will stick to that.
