I am failing by a few points. And wondering if anyone could give me further advice.

How do you know you are failing by a few points? I thought you only get pass or fail not actual marks, just curious!

I believe each MC questions are 3 points each...and SA questions are 3,2,1 points. I failed by a few points too. CNA sends you a summary of where you are weak and you should concentrate on that for your studying. That's what I've been doing.

Has anyone used the text Mosby's guide to the Canadian RN exam and the Short Answer Guide for the CRNE?

I have a silly question.............for the short answer section of the CRNE.....does it matter if we write our answers in lower case? Because it says that we need to write in BLOCK LETTERS???

Anyone???:idea:

I've been using both Mosbys and the CRNE guide put out by the CNA. I found that my percentages using Mosbys were 60-70%, where i'm currently at ~80% using the CRNE guide. I'm REALLY hoping the CRNE is like the CRNE guide, b/c Mosbys questions are really hard (though really good and identifying where you're weakest).

I don't think it should matter if you write in block letters or not. They may prefer it be in block letters, but i can't see anyone failing that section for not writing in block letters.

I'd like to say thank you to all the people that helped me out here. I am writing the exam next week. Pray for me :)

I think I have anxiety in terms of the exam. But anyways. One question at a time. :)

Rosie, take a lot of deep breaths and concentrate on controlling your anxiety. I took the CRNE in June 05 and passed 1st time. Some suggestions:

Use the CRNE book, if you are getting questions wrong then really read the answers and look up the info in your text books if you really aren't getting it. Don't do the questions in order as you may only recognizing the scenario and the correct answer without actually thinking. Mix it up, have friend quiz you randomly. Also, I definetly think the online (which costs $) is worth while. It has new questions and scenarios... use the browser to print the questions so you can review them again at your leasure. Also, using the mosby text book is good as well-- however I would only focus on the sections you know you are weakest at.. otherwise it can be pretty overwhelming. And finally, review some of the best practice guides for communication and diabetes and other General everyday use ones. This review can be very valuable when it comes to the short answer. Don't confuse yourself with NCLEX review books... the focus is much different than what you need. The CRNE is much more about EBP and communication.

I wish you the best of luck. You passed your classes... you know this stuff. Learn to control the anxiety and fear and I'm sure you'll be okay. I'll pray too!

Hi rosie , i also failed my exam . i wrote it in feb and got the result one week ago , i feel pretty frustrated and don't think to be able to write it in June i don't feel ready and like you i am not sure where i have to start or get help, i read CRNE prep guide but it seems it was not enough . i asked the college to re-score my exam , you may do it too .

if you want any other good resources to study please let me know

thanks

p.s. you are not the only one

I don't know if my posting went on. Sorry if my postings comes on twice. Well. I failed my CRNE twice. I really thought at both times that I had passed. I am failing by a few points. And wondering if anyone could give me further advice.

I studied with the CRNE prep guide. I thought it would of been sufficient enough. But I guess it wasn't, on my case. I know it's easier for some to pass and while others it's a challenge. In Nursing school; I did well. B+ to A's....so I am wondering, whats wrong with me>>>

Pressure is on for me; this will be my last time to write it. So any advice will help me. I plan to write in June or August.

Hi Rosie

I came across your message and am curious to know how you fared in your third attempt ? i failed the Feb 2007 test by 12 marks ( got 399 out of required 411 to pass). Main reaosn for grade was anxiety attack in the second half exam and it was compounded by the student sitting next to me kept on looking at her answer sheet and sighing loudly enough to bother me. Test centre invigilators did not care either i guess because they are unpaid volunteers. It would be very helpul, if you or other successful students could advise ?

I am being told by some of my fellow students in my first year school that June test is hardest ? Is that true ? I think with right preparation one should be able to pass any test.

I remember in high school they told us that out highschool was harder so the university application centre would bump our GPA up by a few points... turned out to be total BS. I think that whoever told ya the June exam will be the hardest is also telling a similar tale. How could the licensing body make one test harder than another in order to test competency? It doesn't seem like they would change the standards for entry to practice for one test session. That would go against the standards of the profession, plus everyone would be sure to try and write an easier exam. I think June will be the largest group writing since most of us will have just finished school, so there will be more writing at that time than another. :uhoh21: But then again, I am not writing the exam for another couple weeks, my 1st time, so wth do I know? :monkeydance: GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY WRITING! :D
