    Oh man. I remember these questions from school and I HATED them. Hated. Whenever I got one right it was a victory. Unfortunately I have no tips on how to answer them but I feel your pain.

    I wish they would give you partial credit.

    The way I answered those on the exams and NCLEX was to go straight for the ones that I knew without a doubt did NOT apply. Once I eliminated those, if I didn't have a very good reason as to why either of the others should to be eliminated, I made my selection. Unfortunately, since we have no way of knowing exactly which ones we missed on the exams or the NCLEX, it's a toss-up as to whether or not this theory worked. But since I never had to repeat any exams or the NCLEX, I dare say it worked for me....sometimes barely, but it worked all the same. Lol!

    Is EC doing more of these now? LOL! At least you'll be all ready for the NCLEX.

    I know I had my fair share of 'em under the new curriculum.....don't know about the Nursing Concepts students. Lol! Seems like I was always trying to come up with a strategy for this or that. I probably should have changed my degree to something in some area of strategic development. Lol!

    I know I had at least 10 select all that apply questions on LS2. Literally! I stopped counting at 10. All I can say was you've got to be kidding me (in my head).

    On my NCLEX I had about 30 or more select all that apply questions, so practice them now!! The best way I found for getting them right is to treat each answer as a true and false. Much easier than trying to figure out how many "right answers" are there for the whole question.

    It can really be a bit frustrating but it is part of the system. Maybe there should be a suggestion to get some partial credits if you get some correctly.
