JUST Passed both FCCA!!

  1. Just wanted to write a quick note, since so many comments here helped me with decision making on all levels with Excelsior College. And, made me feel NOT ALONE in this endeavour. Just passed the second exam FCCA 498 last evening. Cannot believe I have gotten so far, and what a great path it was for me with this school. I know the hardest is still in front of me, CPNE and boards, but I feel that if you prepare enough everything is possible.

    ALL of the nursing exams I passed on first try and FCCA, with the help of STUDYGROUP101www.studygroup101.com/studyguides.html ONLY. Lifespan3 seemed the hardest for me, as the study material was not similar to the actual exam, but I always used the ADPIE, and it worked out well. I thought the notes from studygroup101 for FFCA were sufficient enough, plenty of practice questions, care plans, assessments! were great! If you study those- you WILL pass. ANY questions, don't hesitate to email me. All best!

    Congrats on your accomplishments and thank you so much for the great information! Since the FCCA is a "mystery" I decided to purchase the SG101 information. I just started the FCCA this week so it should be interesting.
    Good luck on the CPNE and keep us updated.

    you can try studyguide101, I took mine with labs in a local college, but the $10 price tag is well worth it for any practice questions..I did forget to include that with each exam I also studied the excelsior practice exams, the rationales cover much information to each particular subject
