Anyone applying for the Fall 2012 semester at North Central Texas College for the ADN program? I went up to Gainesville yesterday and applied! I'm pretty excited because I didn't realize until mid-March that I would qualify prerequisite-wise to apply for any programs for Fall, so it was a pleasant surprise.

I had bought a Barron's nursing school entrance exam test prep book back when I was looking at a bunch of programs with different exam requirements, so I've been using that mainly. There are some weird critical thinking and reading comprehension questions so far (e.g. reading comp questions that really don't have to do with the associated passage, very subjective type questions, etc.), so I'm not sure if I would recommend it to anyone else.
I also got the A&P for Dummies Workbook as suggested on the Kaplan webpage on NCTC's website. That has been good so far. Pretty basic review, but it beats sifting through 1000+ pages of my A&P textbook. I like that it's a workbook, so there are tons of multiple choice questions and matching and labeling exercises.
I took a GRE prep course a few years ago and still have a huge test prep book that I may break out for help with a few areas that the Barron's book is lacking in.
Anyone have any recommendations on materials they are using?
