2 out of 5 stars help guide, October 9, 2002

  Reviewer: from Texas United States

There is some information in this book that you might find helpful if you have other books to fill in the gaps. I found that this book was written with the assumption that the DAT in identical to the MCAT. (IT ISN"T!!!!!) She tells you to study stuff that won't be on the DAT....(e.g physics, describes the process of testing as though it was also the same as MCAT.)
I wouldn't recommend this book if it is the only book you are going to buy. But if you just want to get an idea of what might be needed, then it will lead you in the general direction.  

3 out of 5 stars So-so, September 14, 2001

  Reviewer from Houston, TX United States

While at the bookstore, I took a break from filling out applications and this was the only book that they carried which was created specifically for dental school applicants.

The book is easy to read, but I didn't find it very useful. The information in there is pretty basic and generic, nothing that most people don't already know about how to get into school (ie - observe at a dentist's office, keep your grades up, do well on the DAT). On the plus side, the book does cover some studying tips, and in the back there are blank pages to record your own application process.

I would recommend that you peruse the book if you happen to fall upon it at the book store -- I've seen it at several around town. However, I wouldn't recommend purchasing it unless you are looking for some elementary guidance.

This book was excellent with the respect that clearly illustrates how to be sucessful with the all-important interview. The book also gives some good tips on how to be a good student as well as how to manage one's budget will in school.

  Reviewer: A reader from Little Rock, Arkansas

I thought that this book was helpful in pointing out what dental schools are looking for in candidates. I enjoyed the sections on how to interview at dental schools, how to pay for dental school, and info on the application process. I bought this book mainly for help on my personal essay and it was helpful in that aspect.
