NLN A&P Exam

  1. Hello everyone,
    I am scheduled to take the NLN A&P exam soon. I took A&P last fall, but missed the final (sick). I had a B grade before the final. I remember some stuff, but still. How should I study? go over all 1000 pages of the text book? are there any study guides? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks and good luck!

    I didn't have AP before I took NLN. I just studied the basic study guide for nln and made 99% on science. not much on body parts. Mostly general biology and chemistry.

    Hello everyone,
    I am scheduled to take the NLN A&P exam in a few months. Can anyone give me an idea of what is on the exam and what is the best way to study for it? The NLN does not have a study guide? Does anyone recommend one? Thank you for any help you can give me.

    Adutt, did you take the exam yet? I have mine on January 26, I'm about 1/3 the way thru my A&P book, reading cover to cover.

    Twinkle Toez did you get your resultls from the exam yet? How was the exam did you think it was easy?

    Yes, in January, its taken me this long to recover. I did a lot better than I expected. I ended up with 87% overall, I only needed 75%. Some of it was way beyond me & some of it was really simple. I had no idea what to expect. My test was 120 ?'s but only 100 were scored, (don't know which ones). It was all multiple choice, no labeling.

    Hi Twinkle toez, I am scheduled to take the A&P nln exam in march, is there any advice you can supply me with as far as preperation for the exam goes? I'm extremely nervous about this exam and I want to do well.

    Know the basics of all the body systems. It didn't go into the really major complexities. There were some clinical focus ?'s that I wasn't prepared for. I studied by reading my A & P text cover to cover. I based my studying on the practice tests in the book & online, but I found that to be too in depth and overwhelming. My best advice is to be really solid on the basics.
