    I know this is an older post, but I am registering for my FCCA and wanted to do them simultaneously. Is this a bad idea? EC doesn't recommend it, but I don't want to go off of them. Would it be a bad idea to do them together?

    Not "recommended" but a lot of people do it. I plan to take both together as well

    I just registered for both. If I fail one (God-willing that will NOT happen, positive thoughts), I can sign up again for the next 8 weeks, which I would be taking that time if I did it sperate anyways. Si se puede! (We can do it!) I believe. Haha

    Wow, congrats!
    I had stopped using sg101 a long time ago when I ended up with a C in Lifespan 1. Problem with sg101 is that you're never sure if they've really covered all required topics or not.

    As long as you use resources like SG101 in conjunction with the exam content guide, you can be fairly certain what you've covered. But I liked using more than just one resource, usually.

    Hi thanks! for me sg101 worked great, but everyone has different study habits, I retained info better from sg101 than reading books. Also liked the quizzes and review questions they offered within each study guide. Nclex next week! and sg101 got me there with no fails

    SVT511, what did you decide? Are you doing them together or one at a time. I start the FCCA on June 30 and I haven't decided if I should do them one at a time or together. I just don't know what the FCCA consists of? I don't want the answers I just want to know what to expect...

    Yes, ma'am! I did them together and this week are my last tests. Its nerve-wrecking because they are so vague about the whole thing, but I promise you, it was even easier than I thought. And think of it like this: if you don't pass one, you'll be taking it the next 8wk anyways so might as well try for it. Good luck!
