Is it me or are those types of questions annoying? They always give me a mini panic attack! I mean if you choose 1,2,3 and leave out 4 the whole question is wrong!! Arghhhh!
Okay.. done venting.. lol

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!
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!
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.
