Final Tomorrow Morning and Cannot Study

  1. Hello Everyone!

    My cumulative nursing final is tomorrow morning at 10:00a.m. and I can't study. I spent the last two days just reading my notes and feel like I didn't even study. One of our instructors is kind enough to have a review session with us today and she is known for telling you what you need to know for the test ie. saying that there will be 5 questions on postpartum, 3 questions on birth control and things like that. It's going to be a huge help but I just can't focus. I keep telling myself that this is the last test I'll be taking until September but I am having the hardest tme. Anyone else out there just feel like their brain is full and can't absorb anymore?

    I do! I do! :chuckle My A&P II final is coming up and I'm not motivated at all. For me its because it's sunny out, but you've got to get in the study zone. Lock yourself in a quiet boring room somewhere so the most exciting thing to pay attention to is studying...thats what I always do.

    Good luck

    I have my A&P II final tomorrow morning and rather than study, Ive decided my time would be better spent figuring out the lowest grade i can make on the final to still have an A in the class. I think thats productive, right?

    3 down, 3 to go...Im not done until Friday

    That's me!! I've got my pharm final tomorrow at 4:00. It's the last one and I'm done. Only problem is, I'm done now. Fried crispy. I'd even be willing to sacrifice my A for a B rather than give up another minute to studying. I'll study tomorrow.

    I currently have an 87 in my A&P1 course. Believe me when I tell you, I worked hard for
    that B. My problem is that the final is on Thursday, but I only have to take it if I want to try
    for that A. Our grades are based on 4 test grades. If I take the final, that will be the fifth
    test grade. Only the four highest grades are factored into our grade. Now, I would need
    to score a 92, on an essay test consisting of 10 multiple part essays. As you have all stated, I just can't find it in me to study one little bit more. After this semester, I am truly
    burned out. Just an opinion, if it were you, would you take the test or be happy with a well
    earned B?

    I would take the test anyways...a 92 wouldnt be that hard so its definitely worth trying for. If your professor is dropping one test grade, it cant hurt you to take it and see what happens.

    My final is Thursday morning at 9:00 am.... and here I sit.....perusing Allnurses.

    I think my brain felt the semester should have been done about a week ago. :chuckle

    Good Luck Everyone Sitting Exams!

    I've often heard people say, 'if you don't know it now, you never will'
    whilst it doesn't apply to everything, I guess if your brain is 'fried' then maybe it's time to have a break and let it RELAX in prep for your exams!

    Good luck guys, you CAN do it! just believe it!!

    Boy do I know what you are going through. I hardly picked up my notes for my psych final yesterday, I just couldn't make myself study, thankfully I passed. Good luck with your final!

    Hey there.....been an RN for about 3 years now...keep studying...even though you think you can't anymore....plan your time....take breaks...like surfing the web....and EAT...do not diet or try to stop smoking now lol!!!

    anyway...for my last Nursing final ever...I just could not study at all...It was clinical/lab type final.....so..........I went and got a pedicure and manicure...got my hair trimmed...you got the picture....and I did Ace that test...

    If it matters....no one has looked at my 3.8GPA for a really long time now...that last semester, I was willing to take even a "C" just to get done...(never got one though).....

    Point is study hard and steady all along...then you will have the knowledge base inside you.....

    BEST WISHES!!!!!!!
