    Yeah, if I don't get accepted into a BSN program and I do to an ADN I am going to just do ADN. I rather do that than wait. Most hospitals will pay for you to get your ADN-BSN as well. So I might take that route.

    Violach, maybe we should be study partners. I didn't do as well as you. I think I over analyzed a few of the first questions and then felt rushed to finish.
    Now I have to switch gears and start preparing for our Pharm test. There is just sooo much info to cover on one test.

    I am trying to get all my other stuff done by tomorrow so i can concentrate on pharm for a few days. i am lost in that class. I'm beginning to think pharm and patho should have been taken separately. Patho isn't requiring near as much time as pharm; 10 chapters in 2 weeks is pretty intense.

    I'm sorry. It is difficult material for me... I just usually put in about 3-4 hours of studying a day. But I am sooooo behind this week bc my entire family has been sick with the flu. I haven't even started my patho reading yet. Dropping my kids off at my mother's house today so I can wrap up my Intro assignments and I start working on Patho! I definitely could not do Pharm and Patho at the same time. I have kind of weird way of studying, but I'm a visual learner, so it works for me. I color code everything on the RRD's. All words I need to know, I highlight blue. Their definitions, yellow. Concepts, orange. Examples - pink, etc. Then, when I'm looking for a particular definition - I scan and look for a blue word. I also make my own outline based off the RRD's with more simplified words/sentences and I write down the page numbers throughout my simplified outline so I can find it easily in the RRD's. I just go over it over and over again until I get it. I know my method might not work for some, but making everything more visual jogs my memory. And I watch the podcasts and take additional notes. :P

    Has anyone already finished up Intro? How is the final? Is it the same as a quiz?

    I finished up today. I took the final on Tuesday and it wasn't bad.

    I need to go buy some more highlighters. Your method would definitely mainstream things, since I think I'm highlighting half the page sometimes.
