Hello I take my first RN course next semester. I keep seeing threads about the med calculation test and people freaking out. Can someone give examples and how can I prepare? Thanks

My school uses Clinical Calculations Made Easy (5th Edition) by Gloria Craig. It's a 6 chapter workbook with a lot of problems and explanations on how to work through them using dimensional analysis. There are also plenty of case study problems as well. I suggest getting it or the previous version and working through it if you're nervous about math and using it in school.
Clinical Calculations Made Easy: Solving Problems Using Dimensional Analysis: Gloria P. Craig: 9781608317905: Amazon.com: Books
Either way, my advise is to not internalize the fact that other people freak out about math or any other subject because it just makes you do the same.
(not that you are internalizing but just my 2 cents for those who are)
You'll do fine!
ETA: Although I've always been someone who is confident in my math abilities, I've also been someone who makes a lot of careless mistakes...I passed my Med Calc Test on the first try last Thursday and scored 100%. It can be done.
