It’s good for what I told before but a little bit complicated if you want it as a base for studying (I studied some year ago and needed to refresh the concepts). For that, I prefer dental decks. Anyways, I recommend you better to study with old exams an d this book if you want to save some time. As an international student, a recommend to buy it.

Has a lot of good basic material to get you started in your board prep. I don’t think it should be your only study reference though.

First is a great book to read from. Not that vast or any unwanted details included. Just breif and precise enough. But it does have some mistakes on some topics. (very little though)..Overall a great book.
