OK....so you guys who are either pretty far into or done with the program---did you hit a patch where you were just SOOOOO done....couldnt wait to throw the books in the trash (not literally) and just be done already. Im working on HDLS1 right now---I HATE cardiac---and it feels like its taking FOREVER to get through the information on cardiac. The outline says the the exam content is essentially 1/3 of each, Cardiac, Respiratory, and Abn. Cellular Growth. (Can someone whos taken it already confirm or deny that its actually equally split between the 3 of them) Theres a heck of alot more to cram in on cardiac than the rest and its BORING the stink out of me...OK...Ive vented...Thanks....But its still boring...

It is split evenly between the 3 subjects. I love cardiac, and found this test to be very interesting! I got an A on it! I read on the other post, you have Study Group 101 materials, use those for the test, they will really prepare you. Good luck!

I guess I dont so much mind cardioVASCULAR but the heart part is whats killing me---the conduction of the heart and the differences between the meds and the dysrhythmias are whats just SO much. Ill get past it...

Felicia,

This one was the toughest for me. I used SG101 and took EC's practice exams. Made a B. I was prouder of it than some of my A's because I just could not get into it as well. Good Luck to you. I am sure you will do fine. Traci

Yep, I know how you feel. I was so burned out when I got to HD3. I felt like I was gonna scream. After I finished all my exams, I was really burned out. It took a while to regroup and start studying for the CPNE. So glad its all over. hang in there!

I think we all hit a boredom patch. Once I got to the last one 7 about the history etc... I could not focus and pretty much only really studied the week before the date I signed up for. I just could not get motivated because it was so boring and basically just memorized things on that to get through the test. I felt like I was back in high school my senior year in the last quarter. Just wading through to get through it even though my heart wasn't in it anymore because all I could think about at that point was moving onto the CPNE.
