[QUOTE=LPNtoRN]I was wondering how you did. I took NC 5 last night and bombed it. Made a D. It wasn't really surprising, I shouldn't try to make excuses but I've been feeling burned out and depressed again lately, haveing a whole lot of trouble concentrating and I think my Lexapro isn't working as good as it used to.
The testing man knew it wasn't good when I walked out and said "I should have stayed home tonight"...:stone
Went ahead and signed up for NC 2 today, even though I am not feeling like I can study any better for that than I did NC 5 (I waited until Wednesday night to go through the study guide). Didn't know enough about fluids and electrolytes and the renal system. Bright side is that I know exactly what to study now...
Reply from BikerNRS.............How'd I do that?
How much studying and time are you taking with each exam? I've decided to give myself 8 weeks each. I get the content guide and figure out exactly how many pages I need to read out of all the required books each day. I do this reading 5 days a week ( weekends a no-go) 12 hr shifts no time. So far it's only been about 20-25 pages a day. Enough to keep me busy for at least 4 hrs/day reading and taking notes. SO far it' seem to work but then again I have only taken one exam.. I still have time to play if needed, movie e.t.c. Hang in there.
