    The influence of each action continues long after the action has been completed. The power of each thought resonates far into the future.

    Think and act as if each thing you do will start a chain reaction. Because that's exactly what will happen.

    Exercise control over the big, obvious issues in life and you'll have some measure of success. Learn also to control, direct and focus all the thousands of little things that few people ever even think about, and your success will be great indeed.

    Each tiny little fraction of a moment is an opportunity to make a difference. Bundle all those opportunities together in the service of your goals, and they will bring spectacular results.

    With each and every thing you do, with each thought you think, with every word you speak, you are planting seeds. Those seeds continue to grow, long after the moment has passed.

    When a positive, purposeful attitude permeates your life, those seeds you plant will develop into powerful, enduring expressions of your most authentic self. Give your best to each moment, and you'll harvest the rewards over and over again.

    Your success is an inspiration!

    Thanks LoveNursing1.
    My tips? I took the complete Kaplan Program. QBank scores (mid 50s-60's). I exhausted my QBank. My content was weak. I was an Excelsior Grad (online LVN-RN program). I looked up what I needed to brush up on. (used Saunders and the Kaplan workbook) QTrainers were also 50's to 60's. By the end though, I was up to 70s-80s in QBank. As you can see, it wasn't an easy road for me.
    Understanding the rationales, good basic understanding of diseases (triggers, causes, signs/symptoms, treatment, side effects, etc.) and what the questions are asking and the ability to see the strategy behind the question (what the question is really testing you on!) AND, how to prepare yourself for a stressful exam (mentally psyching yourself to be ready to focus in!) seemed to me most important.
    Sorry if this sounds like a lot, or too generalized. Feel free to email me privately if you'd like more information. If I can do it and pass, so can YOU! The very best to you!
