Advice/tips needed

  1. I am about to take my state CNA test here in a few weeks. I am trying to make some simple study notes. Does any one have any tips on the state test? Also does anyone have a run down of washcloths needed for certain skills (bed bath, peri-care, etc.)? I have a study book but it does not go in to detail very much on how many washcloths are needed. For example, in a full bed bath would you need 8 washcloths for the entire procedure? One for face/behind ears/neck, two for hands, arms, underarm, shoulder, three for feet and legs, four for back and buttocks. Then the other four would be used as the rinse rags after each soapy wash. I was told that the peri-care is a separate skill that is tested on so you would only need to verbalize that after you are done cleaning the back and buttocks you would then do the peri-care, so does that mean you need to have/verbalize the washcloths with that as well? Like if it were a male you would need 8 for the bath and 8 for the peri-care. I hope this makes sense, if anyone has any tips or can guide me in the right direction for my notes I would greatly appreciate it.
