    aside from med-surg and doh, try to read on nursing research and funda. in the board exam last december (2007), we were asked at least 5 to 10 questions on nursing research in each of the tests/subjects. goodluck!

    I bought my IMCI at one bookshop, but if I were you I'd go borrow it from someone instead. I believe you really won't use it after nle unless you want a job as a public health nurse.

    hi everyone! i'll be taking the NLE this june. to enroll or not to enroll in a review center is still a decision for me to make. can you guys share the advantages of attending a review center & the advantages of not attending a review center? thanks
    Review Centers

    Advantage:
    1. Review Centers boost your confidence.
    2. They have a lot of good resources.
    3. Test Taking Strategies
    4. They entertain you

    Disadvatage:
    1. The travel alone may get you and your pocket tired.
    2. The Cost.
    My Personal Experience: I enrolled in one of the famous Review Centers in Manila. I noticed that the questions they used for the final coaching were taken out from 1 book (except for DOH). The most beneficial part is the Test Taking Strategies. Its kinda funny coz, they gave us exams and checked it after. Almost all of the students got below 75%, what they did is reduced the passing score to 50% just to boost our confidence.

    Results: I passed. I also have friends enrolled at review centers who failed. And vice versa, friends who did self-review and passed.

    Nursing is nursing, who is on the BON should not influence the questions on the exam.

    And be aware that any questions that were previously used will not be on this exam. That has already been discussed.
