    I agree...no real way to study, but the math section helped me to refresh what I had forgotten since I haven't been in Math for about 2 1/2 years. Science, there are some things discussed in the book and others, I hadn't read anywhere in the book!

    If this is the NLN test you are taking, there are actually 3 different tests (I would assume to stop people from cheating). I am not sure if they are all the same questions in a different order or if they are actually different questions all together, but I think all in all they consist of basically the same questions.

    I will say, both times I took this test, I walked out almost in tears...but I held it back. This past time especially because I really want to get in for the fall and I thought I had bombed it completely and there was no way. I think you walk out of there thinking that, but when you get the scores back, even if you don't get in, you will more than likely be surprised by how well you actually did.

    Also, another thing to keep in mind is not every question on the test is counted toward you final grade. They say some of them are for informational purposes for NLN...not sure if they told you that either.

    I appreciate your reply. I took the science review last night out of the study guide AFTER reading the whole thing thru and the BEST I did was missing 15 out of 60!!!! UGH!!

    I've got less than 2 weeks....time to cram cram cram!!

    I studied for a month straight and felt it helped me greatly. I didn't study the vocabulary but did the math and science.

    How do you think you did, JDLA? I thought that the math and english sections were pretty easy but the science part had nothing that i studied on it!

    Way to go Jamie-Sue. I was wondering where you have been and if you had your results back! I knew you would do just fine. Congratulations, we are proud of you!
