    Thanks! I used sg101, the practice exams from EC, and took a whole bunch of practice questions from NCLEX Saunder's Review Book CD. Make sure you know the your cancers (signs and symptoms, meds etc)! And look up the etymology of any big words you dont understand that helped me alot while studying.

    I thought LS1 was by far the easiest of the 8 nursing exams. It's all stuff you probably already know as a paramedic. And if you fail it'll cost you another $305. That's motivation enough for me. You?
    I am studying for LS1 right now... have the exam next Saturday...

    THANKS! Doing the usual... not sure if I'll be ready, thinking about changing the date... back to cramming. In fact, this break is over... back to the books!!

    Hope you're doing well in FCCA!!

    Yup, good luck Barb.

    You may already have your own strategy for the actual test. I always use the flag button to go back to any hard questions. And on my last one, LS3, I also flagged all the "all that applys" for last. I usually use the last hour for my flagged ques.

    I also use the dry erase board to brain dump anything I might forget when I get in and to make notes on questions that may give hints for other questions..like write down the ques # and subject of a ques that might help with other questions if that makes sense.

    I got A's on 1 and 2 first shot but squeaked by 3 with a C and was happy to see it, I did rush the study for 3 so I could make this FCCA class enrollment.

    Knock em dead.

    Thanks ctcpete! Your strategy sounds very similar to mine! I definitely do all of those, too! I especially like the hints for other questions... there are a few!! After going through all 130 questions and flagging a good number of them... I will get up and stretch, walk out to the lobby, get a drink of water and then head back in. Then tackle all the flagged questions. I try not to review all the questions but will sometimes have a ton of flagged questions. If I have any doubt, or want to look at it again, I flag it.

    I managed to do a good bit of studying for LS1 this weekend. One one hand, as a Paramedic, a lot of the cardiac and respiratory don't seem too hard, but I always worry about every exam! Haven't started studying abnormal cell growth yet. Thanks for the support!!

    UGH, I hate SATA questions... dreading LS3...

    GOOD LUCK to you on FCCA!!
