    Update, unfortunately, I was unsuccessful on the exam :-( I missed by 11 questions, and the last 12-15 I literally marked whatever as I was running out of time. I couldn't believe I didn't pace myself well at all, and 3 hours was more than enough, so maybe I just second guessed too much. I am not certain if I would have passed if I didn't have to rush or not. I can't say that I could have read or prepared any better with Billings and Halstead, Mometrix, NLN study guide, and the Billings webinar from Nurse Tim. Maybe, for the first time I experienced test anxiety as I realized my time was nearly up. Considering trying again in the future.

    I am sorry to hear this. The exam is definitely difficult and I agree that your method of studying including all of the pertinent information needed for the exam. I definitely think you should retake the exam.

    Thank you,

    Perhaps in the summer. I'll definitely practice my time management and this is something I stress to my students. Now, I have to take my own advice :-) I believe next time around, I'll just focus on the Billings book as priority over the other study methods. I don't believe the others helped me as much.

    Awesome! What did you feel helped you prepare most for this exam? Want to take it. How long did you study for it before you took it?

    I am wading through Billings right now. It's kind of dry and I keep nodding off. I plan to take the NLN practice test next week. Anyone use Mometrix, and was it helpful?
