    Orca, I don't have any advice, but I thought it might make you feel better to know that I, too, am struggling with just the first tip...It's no problem when I can get a 75% on the Chapter quiz - but when I have to go back & re-read a chapter...it just takes me FOREVER!! I actually thought I was doing the first step wrong until I saw your post, so it's good to know I'm not the only one - thanks
    i am exactly like you...i love it when I get 75%..I have just one question, in Saunders it has the pyramid on some interventions or topics. Is it alright to just focus on those and not pay much attention to those without it??? I'm 36 yrs old and it seems really very hard to retain information as compared to when I was younger. I used to study with the radio and TV on without any problems but right now its really a struggle. thanks jessica for your post. im also glad that im not alone

    Hi Deetonia,
    I am doing Suzanne's first tip and I can tell you she specifically told me that when you solve the quiz just check whether it is right or wrong ... calculate the %age and if less than 75% read the whole chapter and redo the test ... you are not supposed to read the rationales... when you do it the first time otherwise it would not really tell you whether you could retain the matter

    For those who are doing the program or did the program, I have a question. I'm not sure if I'm doing the first step correctly. Once I've completed the quiz at the end of the chapters, I look at the answers and read the rationales for all the questions, my problem is for the chapters that I did not score at least the required 75% on I now know the answers so when I go back and read that specific chapter and take the quiz over again I always get 100% because I've went over the right answers previously. Do anyone know if this is the correct way?

    Igmirnor,
    Thank you for very much, that's exactly what I needed to know. I thought it was too easy the way I was doing it previously. Do you know what should be done if you get less than 90% after reading the chapter and re-taking the quiz?

    Hi
    If that happens, I just redo the part I missed out on for e.g.if it is regarding trach tubes then I read only trach...just so that I can say for sure that I have my content down pat...but the problem sometimes with me is I may miss the rationale for a particular question in which case ..I honestly just read the rationale provided!! anyway if you get over 75% i guess you can go on.. honestly it is difficult reading a entire chapter twice..:icon_roll...good luck to you on your test!

    I wouldn't try too many ways to study the exam, using too many books resources may make it more confusing for you. Suzanne's plan is really good and her first tip explains very well what you need to do

    Welcome

    I failed the first time, used Suzanne's plan the second time and passed. I would advise you to use her plan. The saunders book goes over alot of stuff that you should have already learned, it is a good review plan. I also used Kaplan, Suzanne's is against that, but kaplan questions are worded more like the NCLEX. Most of all, just trust in God.:spin:

    Have you asked Suzanne for her opinion?
  11. by   sjohnson
    Suzanne told me it's not what you get on the test, but that you understand the rationals why the answer was right or wrong. What week are you in the studying process? My scores where low at first too, but the more I did the questions the better my scores got. I was scoring in the 85-95% in my last couple of weeks of studying.
