    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.
    MissinMyErica, I don't me to hijack your thread but I need your help. First CONGRATS! Next, I have been email/debating with an advisor that refuses to believe that someone has taken A&P through straighterline for Excelsior. Could you PM me the name of the contact person at Excelsior that gave you approval? I would appreciate it, I still have most of Excelsior theory exams left and like you I only need A&P II and the advisor I am dealing with isn't budging. It would seem they need to get some consistency regarding what they will approve and what they won't.
    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Did you buy the recommended book or did you get by without it?
    I used my A&P 1 book that I already had. Only problem I had was some questions were about diagrams only found in the recommended book. No big deal though. Good luck.

    I 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.

    Hi,
    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..
