    I am pretty sure all the stuff that you have in black print is included in the book box for $529.

    The book pack just seems easier - and I live by my laptop, so I think I'll use the CDs alot. $500 isn't really that bad for all that's in it.

    ok Great.

    Also, your smart ladies! (thank you for all your help) You guys have often mentioned study NCLEX type questions, is there a book that you have purchased on your own, or something that was required?

    Thank you in advance for your help again!

    I purchased a Saunder's new, a used Made Incredibly Easy and a used Fundamentals Success to practice questions with. (Ebay/Amazon) Also, the http://evolve.elsevier.com/staticPages/s_index.html has all types of nursing book resources you can register for (for free) and answer study questions from other the resources. (Very helpful!)

    Wow, I'm so stoked! I just found out that not only did I get an A in A&P II, but I pulled off a 4.0 for the semester and earned my AA degree with 'high honors' for a 3.935 overall GPA. I couldn't believe it!

    If I can go from a 1.6 to a 3.935, anything is possible

    Congrats! I've looked for those shoes online, and the lowest price I can find is $104. I hate to have my mom spend that much $$$ on a pair of shoes....but, they were reallllly comfortable. It was so wonderful to get to meet you yesterday. I checked the class listings, and it is only showing 27 people registered (of 50 spots) for lecture. They must still be filling spots! Which is crazy, because we had a ton of people at the orientation. I wonder if alot of them got accepted at Brookhaven also and gave their spot up at ECC. Catch you later!

    Congrats Jaxia!!!



    (Kathy....the Danskos????) OMG....I want another pair.... I love them!
  8. by   Yin Yang
    Yeah the Danskos! We found some - the Calla Black Oiled model - $115.00! They were comfortable, but yowie on the $$. If I can't find them less expensively, I may have a hard time justifying that money to my mom (who is buying them for a birthday present). Oh well, we'll see!

    Catch ya later - hope the Hesi went well for you!

    Thanks

    It was so great to meet you, too!

    I'm still not showing up as registered in any classes, so maybe it will fill up after Tuesday. I have no idea how many people are supposed to be in my orientation though.

    I hope your orientation is going well Jaxia -- I'm sure it'll be everything you thought it would be....I'm dying to find out what clinical you're in. Let me know...I'll check back later!

    Well, there were 4 of us at this orientation. It was very...unorganized, to say the least. I will be in the Mesquite clinical -- Yay, Kathy!

    Does anyone know where I can try on some Landau scrubs? We have to find some place on our own to try them on, and then order them.

    About the books -- I talked to the guy at the bookstore, and ECC should have some in tomorrow or Thursday.

    I guess you will have Mrs. M also. She was my clinical instructor. She's very nice.
