First test with Excelsior-Microbiology, Nervous!

  1. 0
    This is my first time posting. I started the Excelsiors nursing program a few months ago and microbiology is my first test. I am regretting taking this test first after being out of school for many years. I have studied until I can study no more and am nervous about my test. I used the text book, study guide, and Micro Demystified. I took the pretests and scored a 68 on form A, and 59 on form B. I have gone back and re-reviewed the pretests several times. I have waited till the end to take my test and have no time to reschedule it. Im just hoping I pass it so I dont have to pay for the test again. I also just paid to fully enroll due to the deadline for A&P, dont want to take that over again. Im all in financially and failure is not an option! Im attempting to go through the excelsior program while working full time (paramedic) plus OT, and I'm married with 3 young kids. One foot in front of the other.

    What was your experience with the micro test?

    I Passed... I got an A !!! I dont know how... the test was hard. My scores on the pretests made me feel like I hadn't learned a thing! Thanks for all the words of encouragement.
