    Pray that you get SET B. I dunno but I found my NPE a bit easy. Anyways reading MS by Udan and Fundamentals of Nursing by Sia helped me a lot during the exam. It was a 33-item multiple choice exam so all you need to do is choose the answers wisely and read the questions and choices over and over to make sure you that you didn't miss anything and above all, PRAY.

    By the way mikeru22, can you remember some topics that were included?

    The set that I got included very basic topics like primitive reflexes, glasgow coma scale, & asepsis. I can't remember the other concepts but reading comprehensively will surely help.

    Questions would include funda and some MS concepts. The first half questions are easy and would only yield 1 point each.. However, I did had a problem answering the next half, which weigh 2 points each and requires your critical analysis and judgment.

    There are some items on basic anatomy (maximum bladder capacity) and physiology (where does a certain macronutrient is primarily absorbed/digested).. foods allowed or prohibited in specific diets (low purine diet).. which insulin to be aspirated first (Regular or NPH).. babinski reflex.. bloodborne illnesses (which instance will cause transmission).

    I can hardly remember most of the questions.. but I can say that it's a fairly challenging exam.. most of the 2-item points are very tricky and can be compared to NLE questions. I didn't even expect that I will pass on my first take for it was a year after I took the NLE, and I was having my training then so I failed to browse any review material.

    So I advise that you study well.. and during the exam, pray. I guess, the latter helped me in getting a barely passing mark.

    I'm scheduled for the panel interview on July.. still got a long way to go. Fortunately, I was recently hired as a probationary staff nurse in a tertiary hospital in Pasay. But, I'm still considering to work in PGH (if I pass), so I will go on with the process.
