I can't believe how much is covered on my exam tomorrow...

  1. Trauma
    Adult GI
    Adult Musculoskeletal
    Adult Heart
    Fluid and Electrolytes
    Aging

    I'm about to pull my hair out! I'm actually starting to get really upset. This is supposed to be (obviously) the most difficult exam of the semester. I already only scored a 68% on my first exam, I've been studying so hard for this exam, I NEED to do WELL on this exam! Please cross your fingers for me...

    I'll let you all know how I do tomorrow evening.

    Only 6 weeks left of my summer semester - had to throw in some good news to this post. lol.:uhoh21:

    Please don't spend hours and hours studying...you'll remember the first 10% and the last 10% of the material

    Study 30-45 minutes and take a 5 minute break..repeat as needed

    Thanks for the advice. Although I actually study about 1 hr, take a break, study an hr, take a break. Thanks!

    Remember to say the information out loud, it really helps to cement it to memory. Good luck, think good thoughts, and I will be praying and hoping you do well.

    Wow Jen ... that's intense. The only thing I can offer is that with 6 complex areas on one test, the questions will probably be more about "the big picture" than nitty gritty details of each.

    Good luck ... I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

    I usually study for an hour or so and then get up and do something else for a few minutes, this usually consists of laundry or something BUT its nice to give my aching brain a rest! then i go back and start the process all over again. this does help!!!

    LOL, I'm sorry but even if I study 30 to 45 minutes, take a 5 minute break, and then repeat MULTIPLE times (because it IS necessary) when all is said and done I will still rightfully claim that I studied for hours and hours!
