    Allison,

    OH! That was too close on the HESI! I would have probably died! I am glad you had a good weekend away with your hubby. Are case studies "care plan" or are they something else?

    Yes, Iggy is our Med/Surg book.

    Ch 1-8 should be good to start with, and yes, in the Potter & Perry.

    I think we covered ch. 6 in the pharm book.

    It may or may not be the same, but you'll be safe with P&P ch 1-8 I'm sure.


    Thanks....right now we're making Chex Mix for the trip...

    Fun,

    This Iggy med / surg Katie, Brie, and Allison are talking about....we have this book on our list or in the box, correct?

    Also, Ch. 1-8....is that from the Perry & Potter Fundamentals book? Thank you SO much for all your help.

    I hope you and your family have a safe trip and a good vacation in sunny FL!

    Amy

    Speaking of the Iggy Med / Surg book. For those of you who need this book I should mention there are 2 different "versions" of this book. There is a huge 1 volume book (ISBN # 0721604463) and then there is another version that is a 2 volume set (ISBN# 0721606717). Both "versions" can be ordered through textbooks.com for around $93.00 (new) with FREE shipping and no tax. They also sometimes have them used for cheaper. Both are also available at Amazon.com for $103.00 (no free shipping).

    I bought the 2 volume set. I figured it would be easier to carry 1 smaller book at a time around instead of that huge book. The 2 volume set is book 1 Ch. 1-43 and book 2 Ch. 44-80.

    Brianna, Allison, sry to hear about the Hesi, I am already scared thinking , that I have to face this thing come this summer. But you guys are 3rd semester students now. How did the class overall do on the Hesi, was it really hard?
    Amy, a while back on one of the threads , I posted the exact reading list, (if you search for it, I'm sure you'll find it). I would post it again, but I cleaned out my papers and I threw that one out, sorry. I don't think it was 1 through 8 exactly, but it's not to far off. It jumps around some and I believe it goes into chapters 21 and 22, legal stuff. But maybe that was for sec week, don't exactly remember.

    Yeah, ours went to 8.....including the second week. There was some 'other' chapters as well.

    It was 1, 2, 4, 5 & 7 for week 1. Then, 2, 3, 6, 8, 20-22 the second week, along with Kee ch 6. For the third week, it was 23-24, and 48 in P&P.

    That's for the 1st test. Then again...I didn't go by the actual syllabus. I went by the 'schedule' that Mrs. J said she didn't make. So, it may be different.






    Looks like I have more reading to do. I never did get to read all the kee chapters.... that was 1, 2, 5, 6-7, 10. (6 for the 1st test, the rest for the 2nd).


    Iggy as used for test 2 (ch 44, 45, 49 & 50)


    The rest is pretty much P&P.

    Thanks Fun! I was just about to ask if you used Iggy at all in 1st semester.

    Allison,

    Have you started the case studies yet? I'm going to try and finish them all before Christmas, and I'm trying to think of an attack plan!! I have a test in my wintermester today, so I guess I'll start after that.... Good luck!

    Amy,
    congrats on your test,
    when it comes to Iggy compared to P& P, I actually loved to read Iggy much more than P&P.
    I am not sure why they only told us to read for test 2 out of Iggy. Those chapters , if I recall, were actually a little too much over our heads for first semester. I personally later on read the chapters about pain, perioperative and oxygenation and others that correlated to the material covered, and I just loved to read Iggy way better than the boring P&P. For some reason they did not tell us to read those chapters in Iggy, I don't know why, but do what works for you. I personally just could not stand P&P and just read (or more or less skimmed over)it, because I wanted to make sure I covered everything, because in my opinion , the lectures (boring powerpoints) sure did not cover half what was on the tests.

    I have to agree with you there.
