Excelsior Life Span 1 tomorrow!

  1. 0 I'm back! Had some family issues and cancelled a few exams over the summer but I got LS 1 tomorrow, then 2 and 3 scheduled in august. I feel comfortable about LS 1 and have been really brushing up on my cardio/respiratory material, SG 101, and reading my book/practice exams. I hope to report good news tomorrow night when I return! As always I will give some tips on what I saw and did on the exam. Please feel free to add some pointers on what particular info you saw on this exam and what you studied. Thanks and I will check in tomorrow evening!

    Wow. Just wow. I am so disappointed. Made a D. I was so prepared for this exam. I passed my first 3 exams inside of 6 weeks but i seem to have hit a road block. I have been a full time lpn for 4 years now and I am good at what I do. I am a College Network victim and my books are from 2007. I should have called them and got my updated materials first i guess. There were lab values (mainly abg's) and some acidosis/alkalosis questions but not very many. Some questions were straightforward too. Oh well, I start studying for LS2 tomorrow. Schediled it for late next month. 60 day waiting period to retake ls1 starts today I will keei in touch on this forum. Good luck everyone

    You will get it next time. LS1-3 are a whole different animal. Being prepared and knowing above and beyond the amount of knowledge you knew for the other type of exams. Keep trucking. I'm working on my third try on LS3, then the same with LS2. Good Luck!!!

    sorry to hear that! i failed ls3 myself so i know the feeling. keep going and you will be an rn before you know it. i thought ls1 was difficult that's why i was surprised when i pass. get ready for ls2 and forget about ls1 until later. good luck.

    I am studying for LS 1 now, and this is a lot of information to remember and digest. I also am in College Network. Do you feel that you have to go way beyond College Network in order to pass the exam? Good luck with LS 2.

    Well the exams are nclex style so I definately recommend some study guided and practice tests. It all depends on how you study though. Good luck
