Dental hygienists’ board game aids study

Two dental hygienists have come up with the perfect solution to the tedious, studying slog dental hygiene students face leading up to the all-important board exams � turn it into a game.
�
Pass It! incorporates more than 1,000 important dental hygiene questions in a fun board game that will prepare any dental hygiene student for the board exams without the boredom, study fatigue or information overload usually associated with the intense exam studying.
�
US dental hygienists, Karen Isbister and Carrie Clotworthy, created the game during their studies for the board exam and have subsequently decided to release their secret studying aid to dental hygiene students across the country.
�
Pass It! does what textbooks and study notes can�t do � it keeps students engaged, competitive and focused.

Karen Isbister says: ‘Dental hygiene students will be astounded by how much they learn and how painless the process can be. And with our carefully selected, targeted questions, students can be assured that when they play Pass It! they will be prepared for the dental hygiene board exams.’
�
Pass It! can be played in groups from two to four players.

The information on the question cards are all culled from textbooks, board exam material and hygienists� personal experience, and represent the most relevant information for board exam test-takers.

Certain questions pertain to specific board exam ‘requirements’ like X-rays and dental materials, and none of the questions are multiple choice.

Contestants move their game piece around the board as they answer correctly to questions. Wildcard spots like the ‘Tooth Fairy’ and the ‘Cavity Creep’ keep the game entertaining.
�
The game works well for auditory learners, as questions are read aloud, and visual learners, as questions are read by contestants on a rotating basis.
�
Pass It! has been reviewed by the directors of dental hygiene schools across the States to very positive feedback and Karen and Carrie will be displaying and selling the games at dental hygiene conferences.
�
Given the importance of passing the board exams � students can wait months before re-testing after a failed exam � the board game can mean the difference between passing the exam and becoming a dental hygienist, or wasting months re-studying for a second chance at the exam.
�
And considering the price of textbooks, the $119 price tag for the game � which can be split between four contestants � is affordable even for students.
�
The game can also be used by experienced dental hygienists looking to brush up on details they might have forgotten.
