Kaplan Launches NBDE Part 1 Practice Question Bank for Dental Students; Unique Online Exam Preparation for the National Board Dental Exam at

NEW YORK -- In a move that enables dentists and dental students worldwide to prepare more efficiently for the first part of the National Board Dental Examination (NBDE), Kaplan has launched the first ever online NBDE preparation service, NBDE Part 1 Quiz Bank, or "QBank." More than 10,000 U.S. dental students and foreign dentists take the NBDE exams annually. Kaplan's Part 1 QBank is a unique, interactive online program that allows users to customize their own NBDE Part 1 practice tests by subject area. Available at, NBDE-1 QBank follows on the heels of Kaplan's industry-leading QBanks for medical licensing exam preparation, which have experienced tremendous growth since their respective launches in 2000 and 2001.

"Only two seasons after inaugurating customizable online preparation services targeted specifically for medical licensing exams, Kaplan has been overwhelmed by demand for a similar portfolio of online NBDE products," said Leigh Ellen Louie, President of Kaplan Medical. "Based on the resounding success of our center-based NBDE prep courses and our other Qbanks, we anticipate enormous demand for this latest product."

NBDE-1 QBank allows dental students and dentists to tailor their own preparation by choosing from a database of 1,000 exam-style questions that are divided into practice tests according to NBDE Part 1 topics: anatomic sciences, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, pathology, dental anatomy and occlusion. Candidates can adapt their study in response to the continuously updated onscreen performance feedback, graphically displayed by subject area, and receive Kaplan's answers and explanations after completing an exam session. Kaplan NBDE experts are also available for email help.

"NBDE-1 Qbank is another example of Kaplan's innovative use of high technology to solve the test-prep needs of busy health professionals," said Ronald Salyk, DDS, Director of Dental Programs at Kaplan Medical, whose team developed NBDE-1 QBank. "With this online, on-demand test prep product, US dental students as well as foreign-trained dentists can personalize their exam preparation in a way not previously possible. Dental students and dentists from around the world will also have access to Kaplan resources, regardless of their distance from a Kaplan center."

NBDE-1 QBank is the latest addition to Kaplan's comprehensive NBDE prep options, which include self-study courses and custom board review programs for dental schools.
