EC Microbiology test

  1. Hey all I bought the practice exam, I heard it is fairly close to the exam we take is this true?
    I know I bought the other EC exams and did well in the last year for NC.
    Any help Appriciated, bought Cliffs notes and it read much easier then the book. IF I had to read just the book I would feel hopeless as you can imagine( I was reading for 9 hours at a time) and CPNE = no sleep

    I got a 52 and 66 on the practice exams and an A on the real deal. I too used the Cliffs Notes and REA Super Review. The questions on the practice test were certainly of the same format, but I don't know about particular questions being the same or anything. (I don't remember!) I took the test in late August.

    Good luck!

    Hey cool,
    What is a REA super review?
    I got a 45 and a 52 on the practice, and that was before I finished reading the cliffs notes

    REA Super Review is similar to Cliffs Notes. I found they both covered a bit different topics than the other. I found it at my local university's bookstore before I thought to download the Cliffs Notes e-book.

    Thanks! I did order it, Does it have questions in the back of the book then?

    REA has questions at the end of each chapter just as short review. There are like 10 at the end of each chapter. It was like a 220-page book. I winged through it and the Cliffs Notes in 3 weeks.

    I found the REA Super Review to be more of the scientific aspect of micro while Cliffs Notes contained much more of the medical aspects of micro. For me, they complimented each other quite well. Good luck!
