Microbiology Practice Exam...

  1. 0 So I took the form A Microbiology Practice Exam.. And I got a 46% lol! so tragic I had to laugh.. In my favor I have only been studying for about 10 days. Hopefully in 3 more weeks or so I will get a hundred!

    It did give me an idea of how to better tailor my studying though. I'm spending waaayy too much time on Introduction to Micro.. I gotta move on!

    Um, I scored a 48 initially and a 50 on form B. But I passed the real deal with a B....imagine that. Its pretty broad, but one of the more interesting topics. You will be a huge "germaphobic" (if thats even a word) once you finish studying.

    When I took the practice exams, the highest I scored on Micro was a 55% on form B. Yet I passed the actual exam with a "B". Not sure how that worked, but it was def a broad exam. Good luck

    I'm scheduled to take mine on the 29th. My first test I got 50%, I haven't taken the second one yet, I'm a little nervous.

    There's so much and I'm nervous I'm not retaining it all! I'm going to take the second test Friday or Saturday and hopefully do better

    How long have you been studying for? Maybe you should reschedule for a couple more weeks from now? Let me know how the second test goes! I'm planning on taking the form B practice exam next week. I'm giving myself 6 weeks per prerequisite that I have left (Micro, A&P, and Life Span psychology) before the actual nursing courses.. I'm retaining the info only because it's what I've been reading relentlessly. I just bought Lisa arends notes and that combined with sg101 is helping me.

    I started last October, but I've had a ton of health problems since then and dealing with a boyfriend getting deployed so I kept getting off track. I think I'll be alright. I just want to get it over with. The goal to get this done, as much as possible, before he gets home.

    I don't know if my comment will be helpful or not but.........I also scored really low on the practice exams and had to reschedule my test several times because I was convinced that I wouldn't pass. After postponing several times I passed with a C. I read a post from someone who said that he thought he had failed the exam while he was taking it but wound up with a B. He also said that he had a friend that took the exam at the same time and he thought that he failed too, but also passed. His explanation was that there must have been a "curve" applied to this exam. I so don't want to encourage anyone to prematurely take this exam, because it is difficult and you have to know your stuff!! You have to study!! The dilemma for me is always, am I prepared? I just took Anatomy & Physiology and had to reschedule that one too. By the next week, I was so sick of A&P that I couldn't wait to take that test and wound up with a B. So, for me, I'm planning on using that strategy as I go through the nursing exams. Being sick of the material will hopefully be a green light for knowing the material and being ready to test and if I'm anxious, I need to reschedule. I realize that is very subjective so take that with a grain of salt!
