The key word is, PRE or P R E P class. Through college I wasn't much of a test taker. I could write excellent papers, explain & sometime teach the material. Test taking was my weakness, so I just took test taking classes to build my skill. Oh, I pass the NCLEX the 1st time.
I'm a nursing student and I'm having a lot of throuble with test taking strategies. I would like to know if you have any sugestions for me, I try to look for classes but it looks that they don't offer it. Thanks
