Passed Transitions!

  1. Hi all! I took my first excelsior exam, transitions today, and passed with a C! I used the studyguide101 material, the EC content guide and practice tests ( I got a 76 on test A and a 59 on test B). I didn't study alot... i would study at work a bit for maybe a 1/2 hour a day and an hour or two on the weekends for a month. I should have studied alot more than I did but it was slow going for me since my brain felt a little rusty Good luck to anyone attempting this test soon!

    Good job! Didn't pass my 3rd test with them, so now I'm alittle scared to retake it. Maybe I should do the practice test?what do you think? Did you find some of the practice test questions on the real exam?

    Congratulations!!!! I've been studying now for a few weeks. i have been studying from a book i have as well as a workbook. ive been doing good on those test. i recently found the studyguide101 material and really like how detail it is. However i find the quizzes and mock test very hard. Are the questions similar to those? I have my test on feb 7th. wish me luck!!!

    Congrats! I passed Transitions last week with a B... I made 60's on my practice tests, so I was surprised when I pulled a B.... it made me more confident about taking Health Safety. I needed the confidence-boost, lol.

    I DEFINITELY would suggest using the practice exams! The questions on the real test are similar. Also when using the practice exam, study the rationales and you'll be fine

    I didn't find the studyguide 101 tests/quizzes to be like the real exam. I only used maybe a couple of the quizzes but there are SO many it's impossible to memorize all of the info in them! I would suggest the excelsior practice tests rather than the studyguide ones, but I LOVE the studyguide101 material layouts.
