    Unfortunately....this exam is very dry subject material. The only advice is to study and memorize. If I had to pick out a good point for this exam it's simple. This is MEMORIZATION...plain and simple. No "what ifs" no, "two answers could be right"(when only one is), no critical thinking. You either know the stuff or you don't. That my friend is the cold hard facts, I wish I could tell you something different but I can't. IMHO this exam wasn't any harder than the other ones.
    Agreed! Very dry subject material! But valuable info as far as legalities, etc.

    I took this exam a few weeks ago. I would study the major nursing theorists, the nursing associations/organizations, laws, rules of DNRs and delegating things. A lot of it is common sense with some historical and critical thinking questions mixed in. I just used StudyGroup101 along with the practice test and got an A.
    I'm taking this next week! Have been studying with studygroup101 and the practice exams till my eyes cross!

    Mr Bee did you take it and what did you study? I just took Form A (without studying, I just signed up..) and got a 55 which I think is pretty good for not knowing what to expect..

    I took the test last night and passed. Was not prepared for it 100%, even tried to reschedule but you cannot do it the same day. With that said, I used studyguide101, EC practice exam-went over it few times, and scored first time ONLY 59 and 58. Never retook it but studied it. The rationales are good to go over..also EC syllabus questions. Now I'm starting micro..

    Passed my Transitions today... So glad it's over. My advice, pay for the practice exams. This is the first test I took that I used them and I kick myself. If its mentioned on the practice exam it's going to be mentioned on the actual test. I don't think I would have passed without it.

    For those who have passed Transitions this year (2013). Does SG101 have a good study guide for this exam? I did not find their material helpful for the Lifespan series. In my opinion they weren't that in-depth for the broad test questions asked. What was successful for you in breaking this exam down and retaining the information? I prefer the critical thinking test questions we usually take and I hope there will be some on the exam??? H-E-L-P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
