    I am almost positive that they complained to someone. I think it's ridiculous. They're blaming it on having to retake pharm so that's what they had to study for all spring break...um .. hello people...I retook pharm too but I managed to multi-task. I wish I could have blown off all spring break and received not only 2 more weeks to study but a second chance. I'm sure it's not the same test but I'm sure it will be the same basic ideas....just makes me so mad. I haaaaaate this school.
    I am with you Allison, this is ridiculous. I have never heard about this before. When I failed one of tests 1st semester nobody let me retest again. We didn't even had 10 point quizzes. Sorry, we should do this by the same rules. We are all ECC students after all. Everybody should get a second chance or nobody does.

    I also agree because I failed the first test for second semester, and I didn't get a retest or a quiz even though I complained to the higher-ups!!!! I just had to suck it up and study even harder for the remaining tests.... Maybe I'm just a little bitter... but it's really not fair.

    very interesting to know for us future students that someone at EL C. retested. Who is your instructor?
    That instructor won't be there next semester. My present clinical instructor will teach one of the 3rd semester lecture classes at ECC and also she will have a clinical group. By the way, I highly recommend her for clinicals. She is a great nurse and a good instructor.

    Well, it wasn't easy.
    I usually study everything that's in the syllabus. And it usually works. But next time I really should go into more details, like read more about complications, treatments, meds. It's not enough to know everything about a disease, you really have to know a lot about its complications, treatments, etc. For example, if a surgical procedure is the treatment of a disease and there is some paragraphs in the book about this procedure then read it. Even if this procedure is not in the syllabus you need to read it. I guess on this level you really need to go into details.

    I feel really bad for this one girl in our class now because this was the test that caused her to have to retake 3rd semester and she didn't receive a second chance last time. She did well on this exam and you can bet she was ticked off when she found out about this 2nd chance crap....I would be livid!!!
