    I decided to order a couple of books that may help me out in the future. I purchased them from amazon and spent less that $10.00 for the both of them being that they are in Very Good but used condition I said hey why not. I will let you know if the price was a steal.

    Via a member here in All Nurses There are something like 3 or 4 formats for NCLEX type questions that are detailed in these books. The nursing school questions are 1) know it, and 2) be able to take it farther and apply it, which is much different from the testing for non-nursing classes. For nursing, you almost never just "puke it back." You always have to evaluate, rule out choices, and often there are two answers that could be correct but you have to pick the most correct one for the circumstances in the question.

    I am because I'm mentally over doing it, which is overwhelming me. I just want to get it over with so I can focus on other things.

    I am taking Chem1032 , Mat1033 (in case I need to take the Algebra credit if it changes again and REL2300 ( my last elective needed according to the degree audit ) in Winter 2013. My Chemistry course is over 4/23/13 so I plan on applying to the nursing program within the app period of March -May for August 2013. I am trying to get in without the Micro as a pre req because the classes are twice a week for lecture and twice a week for lab and only day time classes. I work full time and can't afford to take that much time off work just for a pre req class, If i was in the actual program already it's different because then I know my time was not wasted on taking all these pre req classes and not being accepted after that. I took the HCP class at Sheridan Tech which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. So all I need now is the HESI and to finish the Chem. Am I the only one not doing the Micro first to apply?
