Text Books for the BDS 1st Year Course – Subject Wise

Text Books for the BDS 1st Year Course – Subject Wise


Books are the major source of information, even though your lecturers and professors have filled your brain with loads of information earlier, but it is the books that would do the best job prior to the exams. From the first year of B.D.S, you should have all the main text books rather than just the study materials and the preparation guides, as the text books provide you with the main concept which is enough for you to write down lengthy meaningful answers during the exam, and most importantly, these concepts would help you for the entire lifetime during your clinical practice.
