Good Luck on Transition.. Although this is my first exam, it was difficult for me and unfortunately for me I made a D. I made a 86 on my Practice Exam and bomb the real exam.
I apologize that you did not perform as expected during your Transition to RN exam. I wish you much success.
I attempted to study for that same test, but just can't figure out the best way to study for it that keeps me focused.
I'm using SG101 and supplementing with Google. Additionally, I'm keeping track of my flashcards in StudyBlue.com. It helps me cause I can carry my notes on my phone or access them from any computer. Also, I can automatically look up other cards nursing students made using the same terms.
Most importantly, I follow the content guide. If I cannot discuss a topic listed in the exam content guide, then that lets me know I need to go back and review the content. (If only I can sit still long enough to keep my study plan in motion
Where do you think the test went wrong for you? For example, how did the practice exam compare to the actual exam? Do you have test anxiety?
I almost bombed on Health Safety because I psyched myself out once I arrived to the testing center. I stopped and took a moment to breathe. After the test, I took every spare moment left to go back and ensure I interpreted the questions properly. (I have an annoying habit of missing words due to speed reading questions when taking exams on computer) Next, acing the exam followed.
Thank you for sharing.
