I am a dental hygienist from Connecticut living in California. I recently took the law and ethics exam and was I didn't do well. They would not tell me which questions I got wrong. I felt many of the questions had wore than one applicable answer. Does anyone have any clues on how to better prepare for this exam?

Search the CA board of dentistry and see if they list ethics or laws on there and read them all. I would study the CA board's website. Or go to the local library and find out if they have anything related to CA dental board exams or ethics in dental hygiene.

Same here! I'm looking for some study materials, and struggling to find them. I'm solid on the law portion, but the ethics portion which is nearly half of the exam, is subjective and there are more than one good answer. I feel like there's no good way to study for it. I even repurchased the book they referenced, and it's not giving me much in the way of new information or confidence. Help!

Usually they have a booklet of information at the Dental Board of each state to learn , review, memorize*. CA, is one of the state's ( along with Hawaii and FLA) that make it beyond difficult to obtain necessary materials. GL
