    The most I remember is up to 20 chapter. Some were all chapters, while others were selected reading out of the chapter. This is nursing school and yes while overwhelming it is doable.. Focus on you and your studies, get organized and stay on top of it.. Get a calender to help you with assignments that are due Do so much each day and give yourself time to study before each exam..

    We aren't assigned "chapters". We are tested over a certain disease or nursing diagnosis and then we have to search through 2-3 books, multiple chapters to find related information all across the life span. My program is not a chapter read then chapter test kinda program. Prioritize, look at what you really need to know, across the lifespan.

    We have 10 chapters assigned for the next test. When it's that many I just assume from the get-go I won't be able to read them all, and revert from in-depth studying to the skimming and PowerPoint obsessing technique. Not a big fan, but there's a point at which you're spending so much time reading to run out of time to actually learn anything.

    Agreed... I'm about to stop reading and learn all power points stating tomorrow.. Reading for me does nothin for me. I don't retain it.. Good thing is our lectures go hand in hand with the reading so the power points should sum it all for us.

    I give the chapters a good skim so the lectures aren't the first time I'm seeing the material. And then I outline the powerpoints and supplement from the book if necessary.

    4 per semester. 3 and a final, with both old and new material on the final. It's a lot right before a test, but totally doable.

    For med-surg we had 5 full chapters plus parts of 4 other chapters for the first day. Each week is 4 or 5 chapters, plus online quizzes and case studies. I tend to skim the chapters because I'm not the biggest fan of Elsevier's format and unfortunately most of my books are published by them.

    I won't have any other syllabus until I wake up tomorrow morning because my school doesn't make the online class sites available until midnight the day the semester starts. Again, another thing I'm not a huge fan of.
