    On the psych part, I am associating each disorder with people I know ... (Freud) I think that may help me to remember each one better. Do you have the sg101 CD? It's got some pics and stuff that are really good.

    Thanks, Chris... I'll try that, too!! I got the instant download, not the CD... I ordered the CD for Transitions, which I am taking last...

    WHEW!! Glad that is over!! I thought it was the hardest exam so far... but I was surprised and pleased to get an 'A'! I had 16(!!!) 'select all that apply'!! Flagged more questions than any other exam and took almost the entire 3 hours...

    Thinking of myself over the last few days, some of the terms I was studying seemed to apply to ME! Such as: social isolation disorder, obsessive behavior, generalized anxiety disorder, manic phase (caffeine fueled studying in the last hour before the exam!)

    Study hard for this one, friends... it is TOUGH!!

    Barbara - Thats so awesome . I was hoping for an a too but I changed a couple of my answers and I shouldn't have! Note to self...don't change your answer, the first one that pops into your head is usually the correct one....

    Thanks, Chris!! There were some answers I was about to change, too... and I remembered a high school teacher who said...'9 times out of 10, the first thought is the right thought'... so I left 'em... there were a couple, though, that I read wrong and did change... I seriously thought LS2 was the hardest so far!!! Before that, it was Health Differences...

    When are you taking LS3? I had it set up for 9/27 and changed it to 10/4...

    Barbara, GREAT JOB!!! Hard work pays off. I am over here giggling because I had the same pre-LS2 freakout (back when it was called Nursing Concepts 5) because sooooo many people failed it and talked about how difficult it was, and I was pleased to pull an A on it. I had a feeling you'd do the same thing!!! Tee hee!!!

    THANKS, Lisa!! I felt more unprepared for this one than any! The subject matter was so broad, and YES.. some of the people talking about it had me worried! I appreciate your kind words!!

    Barbara - I have it scheduled for 09/26, but I just read that 2 people did well on the practice exams and then failed the real one - this kindof scares me as it is the last and probably the hardest (?) so I am thinking I will give myself an extra week or so and change to maybe 10/10. I think that will still give me time to get into the next FCCA before year end.

    I am a little nervous about that one, too!! That's why I changed it... took a peek at the material last night, and it doesn't seem tooooo bad... but I will not underestimate it, for sure!! I gave myself the rest of the weekend off (1 day... yesterday!!) now it's back to work tonight. I'll start studying again on Thursday. I always take some study materials with me to work but seldom get the chance...

    Since you don't have another exam to do... maybe changing it a little might be helpful... I still have Transitions to do last!!

    Have a great week!!
