Nov 30, '11I am in the second part of Straighterline A&P I and I find it hard and confusing because you have to teach yourself totally. Also, there is no specific material to hone in on -- the tests cover the whole entire chapter!!! OK so far because the tests are, I guess, open book. The saving grace. However, I was just told that the final is proctored --- does that mean no notes at all -- cold turkey??? and how hard was the test? Anyone go through this yet??? Help.

Sep 19, '12Quote from MissingMyEricaHi,So I passed my CPNE on 3/25 and the only thing I had left was a&p 2, since I took a&p 1 at my community college with lab. Since Excelsior doesn't require the lab, I took the a&p without lab option. It took me 4 days to complete and let me tell you it was MUCH harder than I thought it would be. I have a strong backround, because I work in a teaching hospital on a cardiac floor, but even so this kicked my butt! I didn't want to take the excelsior exam because it was way too much info to cover on one test. If you have a pretty strong backround and you did well on your excelsior nursing exams, you should consider this course. I don't recommend doing it in 4 days, but I WANT to take my NCLEX as soon as possible and that was the last thing standing between me and my GN! Any questions please let me know.
How did you study (what tools did you use)? I just rented their recommended book (Seeley's Anatomy and Physiology 9th edition) from bookrenters.com. Also, how many questions are on the exam? I see that it's 120 mins proctored open book..
