Phew!! Made it through the first test!!

  1. We had our first test today, after just 4 days of class!! I got an 88%, not too bad. There weren't that many 90s, I was pretty suprised. It wasn't as hard as I thought, I'm anxious to see the answer key tomorrow to see which ones I missed. Has anyone else had any tests yet?

    Congratulations! It's always nice to get that first test out of the way to know what you're dealing with. I don't start back for my last semester until next week and I'm already dreading the first test.

    I've had 2. I got an 88.3 on the first one. The second one was today and I'm pretty sure that I got an A. I won't find out until Wednesday though. Congrats on your good grade.

    I got a 91 on my first test last night. I wanted to start out with a good grade before we have any math tests (ugh - there goes my average)!

    Holy cow, Nadiag, you must be exhausted!! Remember to take care of yourself, it doesn't sound like you are getting a lot of sleep. You don't want to get sick or anything!! You sure put my schedule in perspective, though.

    Great Job!! We're all off to a good start.
    I had a quiz in Communications last week, got an 88 on that one (communications questions are harder than I expected), then we had our first pharm quiz on Monday and I got a 93.33 on that (yes, gotta cout those decimals they add up)

    Keep up the good work (especially my school-mate Princess74!!!!!)

    Hi All,

    First day of Nursing School is tomorrow. Very nervous. One question... what are your tests about? What have they been teaching you in the first and second weeks?

    Congrats to All.

    Thanks!

    We started w/ Asepsis and Safety, then Hygeine, and now we are on to Vital Signs. They aren't taking it easy on us at all in the first couple weeks!

    Great job on your quizzes! I thought that I got an A on my last exam but I only got a 83.42, which is a C. I was totally bummed out. I'm still counting myself very lucky, some in my class have failed both exams.
