    Hi, neighbor (I'm in New Castle)! I took this test two years ago and made the 96 percentile. What is on the verbal part again? I might be able to help you or direct you to some resources.
    As for the science section, the book by Mary McDonald called "LPN/LVN pre entrance testing would be of great help. Or even a biology CLEP book would help (that you can get at your local library).

    You have to choose a word that does not belong out of four words. Seems easy I know, I just don't know the words. There words I don't use. Thanks for the info on Bio...

    Hi, I'm applying to Shadyside and will soon be taking the PSB. Was there much A&P, nutrition, and/or micro material on the exam?

    Hello there were more bio than anything, a little A&P but not much. When are you takeing the exam? I do not recall any nutrition or micro on the exam. It's really basic. Good Luck I thought the last day to test was today for the fall. Did they extend the test dates for more people to get into the school... I hope so because that gives me a good chance of gettting in. I thought I was takeing the exam late.. Well Good Luck. Please write back on how the exam went and your results.

    Hi Chill, I'll probably be taking the exam sometime in April. Saturday the 25th was the last regularly scheduled testing day, but they did extend the dates. I'm glad because I wasn't even considering applying to Shadyside, I had my eye on attending their sister school St. Margaret's. While St. Margaret's will accept me, they won't take me until Feb '07, so they suggested I apply to Shadyside. If Shadyside does accept me, it should be easier since, as I'm working on pre-req's, I'll be able to transfer A&P 1 and 2, micro, nutrition, and maybe growth and development.
    I hope you get accepted! Are you trying for full-time or part-time? I'll be full-time.

    I am going for fulltime. Did you have to take an entrance exam at St.Margarets? Well any way I wont find out if I passed or failed for two weeks. Thats the hardest part for me. Hope you all the best and good luck on the test. Hopefully we will see each other in the fall. I dont know if I will have both A&P 1&2 done in time. So I might have to take them at the same time I do in nursing.
