    Study material for the EC exams can be found on ebay: StudyGroup101 and Lisa Arends. You can also find study material in the files sections of the various EC groups on yahoo and on www.flashcardexchange.com.

    I am inquiring about more study materials for the LPN to RN Transition for College Network Program. The modules material are not indepth enough to prepare for the EC Exams. Please if you have any any information that can assist me in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance.

    As of today...7 (all of them). Just got my updated reported that I "passed the FCCA." My last hurdle is the hardest one, the CPNE---scared to death; but I haven't come this far to freak out. I studied like a mad woman to finish quickly. Now I just have to figure out how in the world I'll pay for the thing (lol). I did get a scholarship from Excelsior though. That will help a lot.

    It depends on how you pay...I was in the "packaged priced" option. So, my total cost including the CPNE and all the practice exams, and the FCCA, and graduation fee is 3,450. Then after I subtract scholarships it won't even be that much. Well, I'll have to figure it up later; because I forgot I'll have to probably pay for plane tickets/hotel for the CPNE.

    That is great!!! I know you are excited to be almost done! How long did it take you? I am also planning on studying and getting it done as quickly as possible. Do you have all of your books and study material?

    I enrolled 9/25/09. There's a lady who says she wants to buy the stuff; if she doesn't pay...I'll let you know. PM me, I'll tell you what I have for your first exam, etc...
