Tomorrow is the BIG day!!

  1. Tomorrow at 9am I take the NLN. At this point, I just can't wait to get it over with. I'm tired of stressing--I'm going to take another practice test and go over the ones I haven't done so well on. Plus I'll be looking up ohms and electricty stuff since I heard that popped up on the test.

    Do any of the practice questions just happen to pop back up on the real test??? Ahhh, probably not but a girl can wish.

    Speaking of wishing...wish me luck! No wait, wish me peace so I won't be stressed during the test. I'll be praying my way through it!

    Wishing you tons of luck and success! Just eat well tonight, get some rest, relax, and remember to exhale! I suspect you'll do just fine; good luck!

    Good luck!! I have to take mine before 3/2 and I am freaked out as well. Just practice a bit more and then get some sleep. I also heard to chew gum during the tests as it will help to keep your breathing more steady. I will try anything. :roll

    Report in after the test!!

    yes definitely let us know how it went! I too am taking mine in a week tomorrow and I just found out a classmate/friend of mine just scored 150--and assured me I would do fine. I hope he's right! GOOD LUCK, PEACE, EVERYTHING else that you need. I'm sure you will do great!

    Just got home from the test....I won't lie...it's hard. The vocabulary is hard....math isn't too bad...science is a doosy! I'd tell you what to study for, but I was so stressed during most of it I can't remember. Wishing you all luck...so glad it's over.

    I won't know for like 2-4 weeks they said...I think that is worse than waiting for the test to get here!! I need to make 130 or better.

    Eww, I got to see mine right after taking the test. Mine was computer aided I've heard some people having to take a written one. Let us know how you do I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya

    I'll be sure to do that. I have a question if anyone knows.....I heard the NLN doesn't use all the test for or against you--that some questions are there for their "informational purposes" only. Does anyone know how much of the test is counted and what isn't?

    I wish I could have known my score. I took it out of test booklet with the infamous "fill in the circles" deal. UGH. I think the waiting will kill me.

    If i can recll from my test scores, there were 80 science questions on the NLN exam and they only counted 60 , math there were about 60( i think) but i know they only counted 40 and only counted 40 for vocab also

    Wow....let's hope the ones I utterly guessed on and got wrong are the ones they leave out! Ha! Thanks for the reply I feel some relief now.

    As soon as my results are back...I'll let you know!
