    I have the ebooks and I like it just fine, but I've also worked with ebooks before and I think they fit me pretty well. I have no organizational ideas, but I bet we'll get a ton of tips at orientation.

    Don't be scared. As you can see, you've got a bunch of people who are along for the ride with you. As long as we do our best to help each other out we'll all benefit. I'm looking forward to meeting you all at orientation! Join the facebook group. Look at previous posts for the info.

    I think people are running into problems with immunizations. For example Hep B takes 6 months to complete the series. I know 2 of my immunizations won't be complete for a while because of having to have a complete series due to negative titers

    Does anyone know of a good calendaring app for iphone to organize all of our classes, assignments, clinicals, etc? The one that comes already on there doesn't have a weekly view which I feel like I would need

    Hep B taking 6 months to complete is different than people who are still awaiting their results because they waited until the last minute to get started. It's better to have people in the program that did better on the prerequisites and testing. So it is what it is.

    In terms of a calendar, I think you can just use the google calendar. It's a great one. Although, I'm not sure if it works on an iphone.

    What happened to the good ol calendar book you can write in? I think its a better choice than the phone apps because you can flip through the pages and highlight and cross things out.

    Isn't taking quizzes together considered academic dishonesty? If so, I suggest we shouldn't post it in a public forum
    No, I think they're supposed to be open book/open note.

    I'm a little confused with pageburst... why are there no books on there? haha I don't know if this is a stupid question or not, but the only textbook I have been able to redeem is the Nurs15 but it's only on the website not within pageburst?

    You have to go to the library. Don't worry I was confused about it too

    I don't know if anyone has gotten to module 8 yet, but do we only do lesson 1 & 2 and no post tests?

    Yes, lessons 1 & 2, and I don't see any problem doing the module quizzes.

    Just so everybody knows, we are allowed to take the quizzes together. Anybody who wants to join us in working on the first couple of quizzes join the Facebook group for information on when/where we're meeting. I actually emailed Dr**. Here response is below:

    ]Thank you for the honest and forthright question. I do not mind collaboration on quizzes providing you do not short-change yourself. What I recommend is that you answer the questions for yourself then get your friends input before saving the answer. My biggest concern is that students rely too heavily on their friends then don’t do well on exams where they have to rely on themselves.
    As always, copying &/or distributing quiz questions is considered cheating and is an actionable offense. Dr.
