    Thank you! I really am trying my best to prepare but also be calm at the same time. I've been using both saunders 4th edition CD and the Saunders 5th edition. For the 4th edition I've gone all the way to 3000 plus questions. For the 5th I've tried doing the questions on the CD but I noticed that the questions being asked on the book are the same with the CD. I'm now using La Charity. As for how I get the percentage I divide the correct from the total number of questions I get. I get really conscious when I get half of them wrong.

    My advice to others is have good nursing content. Strategies are good but in my opinion having good foundation is important, knowing the processes of diseases and normal values. It really helps.

    I have Saunders, PDA, 4000, Mosbys. I actually immediately bought PDA as soon as I read it here. Anyhoo, my scores on Saunders are from 60-65%. For PDA, about the same. I got a low 70 on one chapter. Are these ok? Thinking of getting online review like Hurst or Kaplan, and Qs from NCSBN. BTW, I am Phil graduate and in CA, study buddy?

    Hey there, I would suggest re-read the chapters that you were getting a low score from. At least 70-80. But it's just a suggestion. I'm currently taking Hurst and I have to say, it summarizes everything for me. I'm currently memorizing each lecture and then I plan to continue with the next videos and then the Qbanks.

    I haven't done Kaplan, so I bought the green book instead cause I couldn't afford the online review.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I should get a review so that I have a better layout of my review plan. I jump from one topic to another everyday. Thinking of taking the Hurst review, way cheaper than Kaplan. Maybe the 3 weeks NCSBN too.

    Did the PDA book come with an access code or CD for you to practice the questions electronically?
