    I'm taking mine next Friday and i'm horrified. I'm going to need something like that to take my mind off the exam.

    Thank you!

    It's so funny as soon as I saw " pass" on quick results I stood up and walked into the kitchen and told my fiancee " I did it" and then all of a sudden I broke into heaping sobs of joy. Lasted 10 straight minutes..I was 1/2 laughing 1/2 crying.

    BEST. FEELING. EVER!

    Hi all,
    I am a January test taker as well, Jan 17th to be exact. I finally got my ATT last week and scheduled my test. I had been checking for it daily since I graduated . For the last year I've worked as an extern in L&D and have been working as a new grad nurse since I graduated. I really need to pass this test first try because nursing school financially destroyed my family. I'm really starting to get nervous about it because I need it so bad. I did well in nursing school and did really well on the HESI. I took the elsevier review class (waste of money) and have been reviewing Saunders quizes plus practicing questions on the computer. I still feel like I'm not ready though, do you ever really feel ready? I know areas I need to review (meds, electrolytes etc.) and after I finish the Saunders quizes I plan on focusing on the areas I'm lacking in. I've been following this web and waiting to see if I would be a January test taker, so now I can officially post that I am!!
    It'll be great hearing about all of you passing, hopefully I can post my own good news on here as well.

    It depends, I did it in 4 days, the notes are well summarized with short quiz questions at the end.
    Good luck.

    Go for it. Just think positive. And claim that God will be there with you to help you through with your exam. . Pray above all before you start and then breath slowly deeply inhaling and exhaling , these will help you relax. And take few minutes break to stretch your fingers and do some neck exercise. . Ok, break a leg. I know you will make it.../ Surely with God's grace and mercy.
