Some points can be taken here but with solution strategies and training. Comprehension “Comprehension” under test a medical text will be presented to the participants. This should be read and then test participants have to answer a question about the given text. It’s also here to edit mostly difficult all tasks.

Thereby, practical skills that are needed for the dental services are revised. The practical skills are tested in two different sub tests lasting one hour each. “Turn” wire into the lower test it comes a wire exactly at a given character (line) along to bend.
