Improve your chances of passing the grueling NBDE exam on the first try with our well-proven and successful course. You will find out exactly what you need to know and how to prepare yourself. To boost your scores for the National Board Dental Examination, we equip you with the largest arsenal of "real-life" NBDE Mock Exams to put your knowledge to the test and the means to simulate the National Board Dental Examination by mirroring what you can expect on test day. You will become familiar with the makeup and format and learning through rationales behind each answer through dynamic explanations and learning through the in-app Wikipedia.

How many times will I be able to take each test?
No limit. You can take the tests as many times as you wish.
Will CrackNBDE estimate my score?
Yes, CrackNBDE will estimate and predict what you will score on your actual NBDE. Over the course of taking the CrackNBDE practice exams, you will see a significant improvement in your scores and performance giving you the assurance and confidence you need for test day.
Does CrackNBDE have a score guarantee?
If you demonstrate that you have taken our exams with passing scores, and still do not pass, we have you covered. As a testament to showing you how much we care for your success on the NBDE, we provide all of our students with a pass guarantee! If you do not pass on your real NBDE, we’ll credit you back. You will need to demonstrate that you’ve used CrackNBDE for at least a month and have taken all the tests and have emulated the actual test in the same manner you would at the test center. We can offer this guarantee because of our wonderful track record and the fact that dental students have trusted and relied on us for over 10 years. We are confident that our ground-breaking preparation tools, programs and our amazing CrackNBDE service will help you gain the ultimate edge that you deserve on the National Board Dental Examination!

Note that ALL Tests must have been passed the FIRST time around in ACTUAL TESTING CONDITIONS mode. This is a litmus test which shows that you were not walking into the actual test with failing scores already on our practice tests. Note that all three things in capitalized letters must have been fulfilled to be eligible. Did that happen? If it did not, then you do not qualify for extension. We will log into your account to confirm, so if you did NOT fulfill these three parameters, then you do not qualify.

Will I be able to pause a test?
Yes, click on the timer at the top right in the test to pause the test.
Will I be able to abort a test and resume it later?
The objective and purpose of CrackNBDE is to help you simulate the NBDE exam under realistic conditions. Because on exam day you will not have the option to pause and pick up where you left off, we do not provide this capability. To reap the benefits of rehearsing the NBDE experience, we recommend that you allot the default time to take the test. At any time during the test, you can click on the “REVIEW” button and click on “END” if you want to submit your answers for your review and view your answers.
What is the correlation of my practice scores vs real test?
We do NOT collect any of your practice examination scores on CrackNBDE. Furthermore, many students do not report to us their final NBDE scores. Therefore, we cannot make any direct correlations. What we can say is that over the past two decades, the students that have prepared for the NBDE after incorporating CrackNBDE into their preparation regimen have achieved stellar scores. They often report back to us with great testimonials praising us for CrackNBDE after they have taken the National Board Dental Examination. Historically, CrackNBDE has been one of the best predictors of your actual National Board Dental Examination. Generally, based on past records, if you can pass CrackNBDE, you should pass the actual National Board Dental Examination. Our questions tend to fall more on the rigorous side and students have tended to score equivalent or one or two points higher on the actual exam, but this can vary depending on numerous factors. Our mantra at CrackNBDE is even if we can get 1 or 2 more questions correct on any given section, you're a winner. The extra effort is often what separates you from dropping you down one score level or moving you up into the next score level.
