    Hi,
    Thanks for all the great info. I am going in Aug for OBC. I am trying to decide if I should bring my car. My recruiter seems to think I NEED to have it...but as I am coming from michigan and then my first assignment is at Ft. Bliss, I just can't see all that driving back and forth to texas.

    Any advice on whether or not one would need a car. How is transportation? Is it easy to get around on base, to the city, etc...

    Thanks,
    kim

    CNelson,
    Did you end up picking WBAMC? I also should be at OBLC in august. August 3rd exactly! My NCLEX date isn't until next week...so really it all depends on passing that! Are you going to OBLC that same date?

    But anyhow, my first assignment is WBAMC. I am pretty excited! But, not too excited since the NCLEX is about all I think about these days!

    Good luck making your decision if you haven't made it already!

    Ugh I agree about how hard kaplan is. I excelled (well not really excelled...but I at least passed) saunders and lippencott and all the other practice tests I have taken. But on the questions trainers I have gotten 57%, 64% and another 57%...I am waiting to take trainer #4 until I practice with more qbank questions...but I am not doing so hot on those either.

    I am curious to know if the nclex questions are as hard as kaplan. If they are I am screwed

    This may sound like an idiotic question...but what about wearing contacts? Should you wear glasses on that day, do they let you change into your glasses? Does the residue stick?

    Thanks! I am getting ready for summer OBC and really starting to overthink everything!

    Hi,
    I am new to all things military and I am scheduled for AMEDD OBC August 3rd, pending passing NCLEX!

    I was just wondering what the specifics for push-ups were. My recruiter wants me to think that the PT test is "nothing" for AMEDD OBC. She said that all you need to do is "break the plane" when doing a push-up, describing it as just having your arms be less than 90 degrees. But another officer demonstrated one to me as touching your chest to the ground. Anyone know what the reality is?

    Also how "tough" are they when you are having your test? Yelling etc??

    Thanks for your help,
    kim
