I've been wondering the same thing! I have been using the flash cards, but haven't buckled down to seriously study yet because I'm finishing up Micro right now. Does anyone from previous terms know how the tests are formatted? Fill in the blank, m/c, etc...?

Are the flashcards from the box?

Im looking to finally buying the box this week.

I havent studied any medical terminology stuff yet so Im gonna be focusing on it the rest of the week.

I was always good in math so the dosage calc tests were always a walk in the park. The easiest dosage test is the one you are about to take. The main things to remember are your rounding rules and the conversions... you will see questions that will need tsp converted to mL and Tbsp to mL. (or vice-versa)

Everyone was very nervous for these first tests only to feel silly for being so nervous later! (In fact one of my fellow classmates and I were just joking about that day during our clinicals yesterday!)

Remember this....nursing school is nothing like you have been doing so far. It will be an adjustment (the test style mostly). We all walked out of our first real test with "*** was THAT?!?!" on our lips.

But, also, this ride will be fast and furious! I remember joining this site while I was doing pre-reqs. It seemed to take forever to get to the application day....then there was the 8 wk wait for letters! Next Monday I will start term 4! I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Good luck to everyone on this thread! :nurse:

Glad to hear you're almost done. I'm still on my pre-reqs but we have to start at the beginning to get to the end, right?? I'm looking forward to saying the same thing you're saying today in two years.

Yeah.

I use this app for my ipod touch called Cramberry that you can sync online with their websites so you can type out the cards there and see it on your iphone or ipod touch. Beats having a stack of notecards.

I have a feeling im gonna be using this app a lot, lol.

I typed out all the flash cards that are for chapters 1-3 only. Im wondering what else I should put since all those are only prefixes, root words, and suffixes.

Im wondering If I should also put the medical terms like adenocarcinoma to study, but knowing the root words should allow you to know what it means.

I might as well.

If you know the roots then you don't need the others, since they are built from the roots... but it is helpful in showing how the roots go together

Question about the NAT test. I have already taken it and received a pretty good score. I'd like to try to boost my score on the natural science portion. Since they will take the higher score if you re-test, does this mean that I can essentially skip all the other parts and just concentrate mostly on the science part since I'm happy with my scores on the other portions?
