EFDA Practice Test
The EFDA Practice Test is a must-have resource to master all things expanded functions. This practice test covers expanded functions topics and may help you prepare for DANB exams or to study for a state RDA or LDA credential.
The EFDA Practice Test is an essential study tool to help test your understanding of expanded functions. In addition to being a helpful resource to prepare for DANB’s Certified Preventive Functions Dental Assistant (CPFDA) or Certified Restorative Functions Dental Assistant (CRFDA) exams, the EFDA Practice Test can also help you if you’re looking to earn a state Expanded Functions Dental Assistant (EFDA), Registered Dental Assistant (RDA), or Licensed Dental Assistant (LDA) designation. The practice test includes questions on coronal polishing, impressions, restorative functions, sealants, temporaries, topical fluoride, and more.
With more than 500 questions on a variety of expanded functions, you’ll further your understanding of the concepts and improve your test-taking strategies. A variety of review methods help customize your experience to your personal learning style. Plus, you’ll be able to flag questions to come back to and identify areas that you may need to spend more time reviewing.
Questions are not from actual DANB exams, and completing the practice test does not guarantee you will pass the DANB exam(s).
After completing this practice test, you will be able to:
- Understand the topics covered on DANB’s CPFDA and CRFDA exams, as well as state-specific EFDA, RDA, or LDA exams covering allowable expanded-function duties
- Fine-tune your test-taking strategy
- Refer to recommended reference materials
- Identify areas of study that may need practice
- Check your study progress
