February 18, 2019 by AACD Executive Office

Being a successful student often requires learning how to study. As a dental student, you probably devised strategies and methods for studying for your exams based on your learning style, the types of questions you were going to be asked, and the type of material you were studying. Now that you’ve registered to take the AACD Accreditation Written Exam*, you may need to brush the dust off of your highlighters and buy some new notecards. Whatever your personal approach to studying may be, we want to offer you some insights into proven methods of studying for the AACD Accreditation Written Exam.
