Some of the pre-req courses give you the option of course or exam. You register for the exam, download the content guide to prepare for the exam. You'll receive an ATT from Excelsior to schedule your exam at Pearson Vue. You do your own studying and preparation to get ready to take the exam. There are also practice exams that you can register for (for a fee) that will give you a good idea of what material and the format of the challenge exams.
The only class you will have to register for is the two part FCCA but you won't be eligible until you complete all of the theory exams.
- 0Feb 16, '13 by Pixie.RN Senior ModeratorThe exam content guide provides your "syllabus," with suggested readings from various texts, as well a few example exam questions. It doesn't contain study materials. Finding those materials is up to you. A lot of folks use things like notes from studygroup101.com to supplement their textbook reading. The Excelsior practice tests ($75 for each corresponding exam) are also excellent study tools. You might find more helpful information here: http://allnurses.com/excelsior-colle...ce-808335.html
Best of luck!!!
