The Kaplan book is excellent, easy to read, and very helpful in giving you tools to help answer questions. The Lippincott book is a good source for difficult practice questions.

    Are you applying for licensure in N.C.? If so, make sure you apply early and communicate with them frequently. I had to stay on them to get my info processed and get my ATT.

    Good luck!!!!
    Yes, I'm applying for licensure in NC. Our school just gave out the application packets less than two weeks ago and we graduate May 9. We've been asking for them repeatedly because we heard other area schools had theirs in Feb. I sent in mine last week, it was the soonest I could get the fingerprints done, get photos, and get to a notary. (Don't know how long ago you applied, but now there is a background check, so more hoops and more money!)

    I hope getting it in so late doesn't delay my ATT. But I am more worried about my school causing delay on their end than the BON.

    Ah, but that would be a whole 'nother thread!

    Thanks for all the great advice everyone!
