A Busy Week At Dental School!

You may have seen a typical dental school schedule or been given a summary of what a week of dental school is like but now you get to see how much material is tested over during an exam. This coming week I have 2 major tests. Some of my classmates have 3 because of an additional caries risk test (mine is the next Tuesday). Nonetheless, it is a busy and stressful week for the entire class. About 2-3 weeks ago we had a test that involved over 20 power points with a grand total of 1,200+ slides. I did not count the slides for this exam but it is a lot (don’t forget all the reading).
