Study Plan calendar based on Excelsior's ECG

  1. 0
    Hi All,
    Looking for feedback that can possibly help me be successful. Has anyone ever created a study plan calendar based on the content of the ECG? I am studying A&P using ECG, TCN book, and StudyGroup101. What I find myself doing is reading and re-reading the same thing over and over and not moving forward because I think I'm not retaining the material. I've been on this journey for 2 1/2 years now and have only completed one course. I stopped because the job and kids took my time. But now I want to be totally committed and do everything I can to get my RN.


    Need some encouragement, motivation, or a good swift kick in the hindpot.

    I've found that two weeks has been plenty of time to study for the EC tests. I don't have kids and I only work at the FD two 24 hr shifts per week (most of which i can study during). I'm also only using the tcn modules and EC practice exams. I've found that flash cards are my key to success. It seems easy do get discouraged about the massive amount of material, but focusing on one test at a time instead of the whole program has helped me stay motivated and focused.

    WOW 2 weeks, don't know that I can accomplish that timeframe. I hadn't thought of studying using the flash card method. I'll have to give that a try. With the TCN books, I find that if I break it out into sections based on the EC study guide, I don't get overwhelmed by the size of the book. Combined with the flash cards, this might work. Thanks Medic625!

    For ANP i did a section and then took the quiz on the sg101 CD and if i passed it, went on to the next section. ANP wasn't as bad as you'd think it would be, more physiology than anatomy.

    Thanks BrillyD. That's a good plan.
