    yeah, i agree on that one. i just guessed at a gtt rate of 10, and got it.

    13/15--missed 2 of the OB questions (tol' ya i sucked at OB )

    12/15...bout normal for me. Tho i do question the weight loss for the infant...even converting to Kg's it comes up as too much. Also I think the 42 week gestational two hour second stage is dystocia( Difficult) not should dystocia??

    I wanted to take it and was on the third question, but I was too distracted by the blasted moving ECG-like graphic running constantly across "NURSES QUIZ" that wouldn't quit. Sheesh.

    When I took my NCLEX review last year, the lady who taught it said to assume macrogtt tubing unless the question specified microgtt tubing.

    But still, there are both 10 and 15 gtt/cc tubings, so I got the question right by guessing that it was 10.

    Still thankful for pumps though.

    BTW, 13/15. I should have done better since it was only a year ago that I took it!

    The baby weighed 3630 grams, lost 346 grams...which is less than the 10% rule.

    LOL...I'm still trying to figure out how they got 14cc/h; I got 13/15 too, but man oh man...those OB questions...I HATED OB in school and haven't dealt with it in 18y, and wouldn't you know it, I got all of them right!
