Boohoo, Boohoo test score

  1. Took a skills test today and scored a 70!! I am so mad, angry, puzzled, darn... Tried those new test taking skills they teach in first semester. Nope, going back to the old way. I must have over analyzed myself right out of a passing grade!

    The worst part is you don't get to see what you did wrong for several weeks and then there is no questioning the questions. I find this very frustrating since I am usually pretty good at reasoning and just knowing I missed enough to fail is going to haunt me in my sleep for the next few nights.

    Anyone have some good test taking skills they might like to share?

    Study groups and using NCLEX review books have helped me. We get together before a test and toss questions back and forth to eachother. Even just going through our notes together "out loud" and discussing a lecture helps. It helps you validate what you heard the instructor say--makes it stick in the head a bit better when you hear the same words from someone else...
