I think my situation is quite different from you guys coz most of you are recent college graduates who took the boards within 3-6 months. That's far from my case coz I went to pharmaceuticals after getting BSN. So I feel like I need to refresh a lot. I agree that "it's either you know it or you don't", that's why I need to increase my knowledge content so I will know more.
I've been studying at least 2 hrs. a day and now moving to Health and Promotion parts. I've Kaplan and Saunders Comprehensive review books with Cd-roms. Do I need more?
Thanks and appreciate your help. Happy Tuesday!
One conprehensive review book is enough. Have you tested yourself using the review books or CD. How did you do? Is there an area where you scored below 85%? If so this is what you study. The as Soon as you get at least 85 in every area that is covered on the exam then go for it. You will go fine.

THat made ALL the difference since usually all the answers could be correct but going in order of the ADPIE, I seemed to make correct choices.
Lucky me, I got 230 questions. and still passed!!!
You'll do great!
