    So I started my dental nursing apprenticeship on monday and I have no clue what i'm doing!

    Most dental nursing courses you study in college for but I'm doing all my learning on the job and have no revision given to me or no teaching on how things should be done I just stood there and watch the nurse rush round and im expected to learn.

    I understand this is a way some people learn but all ive been told is I will have four exams and I have no idea what they'll be about!

    So I was just wondering if anyone knows what will be on the exam and any good revision materials I could use?

    Ive done A-levels (A*,B, E) so I know what exams and revision are like

    I've recently started working as a dental nurse and I found take alot of notes/pictures of set up and trays helped me revise what we had done that day and memorize it. I also purchased mosby's textbook for dental nursing (the ebook version) and I can read it from my laptop. Check which book you school will be using and see if they have the ebook version. There's also some good videos on youtube but your best learning will be with your dentist and dental nurse!
