Did anyone fail without having any math questions?

  1. Just curious.....I've heard that the math calculation questions are usually supposed to be considered a lower level question, therefore, alot of people think they may have done well if they did not receive any math questions. So, I was just curious to know if anyone took the test and didn't get any math questions but failed?

    i didnt have math questions when i took the test the first time and still failed....so it doesnt really matter...what i noticed during the test is that when i know that i am doing well with the questions, the select all that apply pops up....i dunno, it maybe just me....

    i know some of friends who failed and they didn't even have a math calc question. i guess, it doesn't really matter...math problems don't determine your fate in passing the test.
    but ah--i sure hope that i don't get one on my test. ;-)

    I remember having one drug calculation, I know for sure my answer was wrong coz I freaked out when I saw the numbers...so I just guessed the answer. It was after the exam that I was able to compute the answer(it took me so long during the exam to answer the math question that I was able to memorize the question for several days). I passed though.

    You'll like this: I had two dosage calc questions at the very end of the test. By that time I had forgotten that there was a calculator that you could use on screen. So I did them by hand. I couldn't figure out why they were giving me math problems that didn't have nice round numbers when I had to figure them out by hand!

    Doh!
