I am a RN student. I truly understand how hard it can be, especially on test day. I was a 4.0 student prior to nursing school and had medical expr. Then, BAM! What just happened... I need to pass! One strategy that has really helped me was to take a piece of blank paper. Cover the answers, and read the question, TWICE. Then begin to answer the question in your mind. After you have thought it through, remove the paper and find your answer. It works well on our favorite, SELECT ALL THAT APPLY.
