Q. I want to be a dental assistant. Are there online sources to help me to prepare for this career?
The Library provides access to an excellent online collection of study guides called "Learning Express Library" that includes sample prep tests for the Certified and Registered Dental Assistant exams (CDA & RDA). This source can be accessed through the Library's web page (hmcpl.org), selecting "Online Resources," and then choosing "Learning Express." You will need to ask a library staff member to create an account with Learning Express by entering your full library card number and creating a pin number. Once you've registered at the Library, you will be able to access the resource at home through the Library's web site. After login, select "Jobs and Careers" and then select "Licensure and Certification Test preparation." You will then have access to several E-Tests and E-Books and can save them in "My Center" in order to retake and review them. There is an E-Book Study guide entitled "Detnal Assisting Exam" and several practice tests for the RDA and CDA exams. A perfect source for anyone preparing for a career as a dental assistant.
