    He thought the math was really easy. His overall score was 78. He was very disappointed. He just said really review physiology in depth because they are precise with the questions.

    I take my test next Tuesday. I'm going thru my A&P lecture notebook and happy to know I can use a calculator on the exam. If I had to bet I think 78 would be the average for this test...its know to be tricky.

    That's what I said. I told him not to worry. I would just do my best. I think everyone is scared of course because we are competing. But we all need to breathe and relax. I want to do my best. And stressing is not going to help me, that's why even though I am hearing science is tough, still staying optimistic. We will do great! We will be classmates in August. :spin:

    What part is confusing you?
  7. by   smiths2n
    its a particular prt that is confusing me exactly, its just some of the readings can be difficult just even comprehend at times! whichthen makes the question difficult! I just need to practice it again!...btw for the science section, are you studying indept? for example, the cardiovascular system. Are you learning like specific arteries and vein that supply the heart muscle or in muscle contraction are you learning exactly what goes on to cause the contraction?

    i meant *there is not a particular prt in the comprehension that is confusing me.

    ooo i wanted to ask one last question that i had a problem with in the math sample that saadia sent

    Is something wrong with this problem?
    The physician orders codeine 60 mg and aspirin X grains. Each codeine tablet contains 15 mg of codeine. Each aspirin tablet contains 325 mg of aspirin. Which of the following should the nurse administer? (Round the number up to the nearest whole number)
    A. 2 codeine tablets and 4 aspirin tablets
    B. 4 codeine tablets and 3 aspirin tablets
    C. 4 codeine tablets and 2 aspirin tablets
    D. 3 codeine tablets and 3 aspirin tablets

    Why am I not getting 360? all you do is solve for X. HELP!!! lol
    If X/5 + 3 = 75, then X equals ______. Answer: X = 360

    15mg times 4 gives you 60mg of codeine. But I am still trying to figure out how she came up with 2 tablets for the aspirin.

    subtract 3 from 75. 5 times 72 equals 360.

    Thats exactly what I was doing but my calculator kept giving me 372....clearly I did something....but ok I knew how to do it but i was doing sumtin wrong!!.....buttt yeaaaaaaa the asprin is what is giving me problems there has to be an error!
  12. by   RN_Student14
    Yeah, I am definitely not getting the answer. Sorry. There might an error. Or maybe we are just overlooking what we are suppose to be doing. I would send Saadia a message if you really want to figure it out though.
  13. by   smiths2n
    naw ill just leave it alone. I really think its an error i asked my sister also along with my mom and they are saying the same thing! . but thankkkkkkkkkkk you though for the help! really appreciate it. gudluck with your studyin!
