The Ultimate CDCA ADEX Test Prep: A Revolutionary Approach

Benco Select Student’s comprehensive study guide is part of a special educational partnership with the esteemed professor and lecturer, Dr. Howard Strassler, DMD, FAGD. Unlike ordinary study guides, The Strassler CDCA ADEX Study Guide shows more than just what to do—it also shows what not to do. Users can view photos of exactly what will earn a failing grade, as well as what constitutes passing and above passing scores.

Each of the online modules is presented in a format that allows users to study as much or as little as they wish per session. Benco Select Student’s learning management software is compatible across browsers and devices so students can breeze through all, or just part of a module on a phone at the laundromat, a tablet between classes, or a laptop at home where it’s possible to view the course photos on a larger screen.

Dr. Howard Strassler, DMD, FAGD is among the architects of the Commission on Dental Competency Assessments (CDCA). A special educational partnership with him allows Benco Select Student members to receive free access to a comprehensive CDCA ADEX study guide.

The result of decades of meticulous teaching documentation by one of America’s foremost dental educators, The Strassler CDCA ADEX Study Guide covers everything. This includes topics which students might not expect: test registration, stress management, test-day planning, restorative plan development, top reasons why test-takers are unsuccessful, and strategies to avoid common pitfalls.

Because Dr. Strassler is among the test’s architects, he’s uniquely qualified to guide students through modules that are kept current through annual review and updating. Benco Select Student members get maximum results, with minimum time commitment, because they’re only studying the most relevant, up-to-date test prep materials, and not wasting time on subject matter that’s not essential.

“Benco Dental has a long history of partnering with dental students and their learning institutions in meaningful ways. That’s why we’re especially excited to introduce this new program focused on helping members fast-track their careers.”

Rachel Pugh, Digital Marketing and Benco Products Manager for Benco Select Student.
