thanks for the advice...Fundamentals success was that a book you picked up on your own??? im going to register for classes tomorrow and will be stopping at manhattan books any other reccomendations???
As far as the math exam... what type of questions do they ask...is it strictly dimensional analysis or they give a situation??? multiple choice??? is it the same test every semester??? and how many questions?? sorry for all the questions just trying to prepare myself for this "wild ride"
Fundamental Success is NOT required, but it HELPED many students in the class to think critically about the subject. Nursing is not like A+P, but you need to know how to apply the knowledge that you've received. You understand, the 1st exam in NUR 112, several students scored very low to the failing point, but once they knew how to study the material it got easier. I loved that book because sometimes you can read the book over and over, and think that you know the material, and practice those questions to realize that maybe you need more time understanding the nursing concepts. :wink2:
Now the math exam is NOT multiple choice, that would be too easy!!! Yes, it is strictly dimensional analysis,
which I love. I did not learn any formulas, when I took MAT 104
, which I am really grateful for, because I believe that I can calculate any nursing math problems. I think they have 10 questions and you need 8 out of 10 correct. (I'm not really sure)!!!
Md orders 20 mg and the drug X is available in 5 mg, how many tablets would you administer in a dose?
or gtt/min questions
No, it's not the same test every semester, NUR 3, we will get peds math question!!!
