    Wow...what great advice! I didn't realize I could apply as a CNA after the first class. Is this right after the first semester then? Very nice to know! I think that would be a wonderful way to get in the clinical setting and get some experience. I will definately look into that as a possibility.

    Also, I think you are so right when it comes to study groups and really getting involved. I will keep this in mind as well. I do have the Test Success book you mentioned! I have just started reading it and so far it is really giving me an idea of the mindset I need to have in order to be successful.

    Question - do you know what the e-book package is on the booklist? It says it is required. Are we required to get electronic versions of the books? I'm just not quite sure what it is. There isn't a description on the bookstore website until mid august.

    Also, do you have any suggestions for specific areas I should review in anatomy and physiology? I feel that I have forgotten alot of A and P 1 and that worries me a bit.

    Thanks so much for your input!
    I'm not sure about the e-book requirements because I don't remember it being a requirement for me back in 2008.

    I would brush up on my AP, mainly the functions of the 11 body systems. The heart, kidneys, liver, GI, resp, neuro are some very important systems to review.

    Brush up on drug calculations too.

    Perhaps the e-book is just an option. I'll find out more when I go for the 2nd orientation in August. I've just ordered some A and P review workbooks to make sure all of those systems are fresh in my mind. Thanks for the advice!

    Hey NurseLoveJoy...do you have a recommendation for a good drug calculations book? The school recommends "The Nurse the Math and the Meds" but it doesn't seem to be very popular and has a few bad reviews on amazon. Now sure what to get. What did you use? I was looking at the "calculate with confidence" book on amazon.
