Any helpful hints

  1. I'm a new nursing student and wondering if anyone out there has any helpful hints. I am having problems with the testing. I will know the material, but seems I'm having problems applying it. Any suggestions?

    try an NCLEX book to help you review for the tests, it will help you apply what you know to the way that the questions are asked. Nursing tests are so different, you need to study the material, but then have to know how to apply it to the situation-critical thinking. DO you have some one you could study with that got a good test grade that could give you some ideas on how to read the questions and come to the right answer?
