    Key Takeaway

    We have received questions for students about whether INBDE Bootcamp can help prepare them for the Canadian dental licensing Assessment of Fundamental Knowledge (AFK).

    Can INBDE Bootcamp help me prepare for the AFK?

    Absolutely it can! If you look at the AFK blueprint, it closely mirrors the material that is covered on the INBDE.

    What are the formats of the two exams?

    • The American INBDE is a computer based examination given over two days. The first day contains 360 questions and the second day contains 140 questions.
    • The Canadian AFK is offered in both electronic and booklet formats. The AFK consists of 200 questions delivered in two parts.
    • Both exams contain only multiple choice questions.
    • Both examinations are pass/fail and require a scaled score of 75 for a pass.

    How does the content of the exams compare?

    • The AFK Protocol provides a blueprint that outlines 8 major subject areas for exam content. These closely align with the content areas of the INBDE and are all covered in INBDE Bootcamp!
    • Here is an outline of the subjects in the AFK and the corresponding question bank in INBDE Bootcamp:
    Overview of AFK topics vs. INBDE Bootcamp

    All of the topics needed to prepare for the AFK are covered in detail on INBDE Bootcamp.

INBDE Bootcamp is a great, comprehensive study resource for the AFK.
