    BarbaraNM: My routine was as follows: I completed the 22 gen ed credits from the end of June through the middle of October. During this time, I had also completed Transitions, Health Differences, Health Safety. I really wanted to make the FCCA by January, so I decided to go full speed ahead and knock out the remaining 5 nursing exams at the end of October. I took the remaining 5 exams over 5 weeks, one exam a week, using only studygroup 101 study guides as study material. I really like studygroup 101. Highly recommended.
    THANK YOU!! Wow, that is very impressive... <letting the inspiration surround me> !!!!!!

    That's incredible! I also started the program mid-June. I've completed all my prereq's (except the info lit course) and 5 of the 8 nursing classes. I'm working on the LS ones now. I felt like I was flying through it, but now I think I should've used your plan. Good luck with the fcca.
    WOW... more inspiration! Congratulations to you, too, Medic625! Info Lit - Penn Foster... ! Check it out!

    Natnat122, I used studygroup 101 to reinforce the information that I already knew. About ninety percent of material on nursing exams I had committed to memory since I was taught the same material in my LPN program. The study guides were used only to clarify points that I was uncertain about; I did not study the entire guide word for word. This strategy helped me take one nursing exam per week with A's and B's on everything. I always live by the addage: Study smarter, not harder(ie, don't study material you already have mastered! Concentrate only on your weak areas). Hoped this helped a little. Good luck!
