Dental board and licensure prep books don’t come out very often but when they do it’s exciting. We’ve just completed acquiring and cataloging four new ones for you.

If you were planning to take the NERB licensure exam, please be sure to note that NERB has changed its name to the CDCA. As far as we are aware, you should be able to also prepare using the old NERB prep materials, but we got the brand-new CDCA prep book for you, because that’s just how we roll.

All board and licensure prep books that are not electronic are on reserve and may be checked out at the Service Desk on Sackler 4 for four hours at a time.

Our brand-new prep books are listed below, but you can also always check out our Dental Board Review Research Guide for the complete list.

As always, if you have any suggestions for prep books that you would like us to have, please feel free to suggest them to us by either filling out the form here or by letting your liaison librarian know. (The dental liaison is me, Amanda Nevius).
