Problems with fundamentals

  1. Well most likely i will be passing my nutrition and pharmacology but i am having trouble with fundamentals and might fail out if i dont get a 78 on my next 3 test. I was wondering what are your study tips and what helped yall the most on test.

    here are a couple of weblinks you should check out:

    http://go.dbcc.edu/hhps/nursing/test_taking_skills.html - test taking skills also from daytona beach community college nursing department. a couple of sample questions and how to choose the correct answer for these application type questions.

    http://www.efn.org/~nurses/ - this is a website maintained by the nursing students at lane community college in eugene, oregon. for study and learning tips specific to nursing students click on "tips for learning" at the left side of this home page.

    also, there is a current thread running where a question that was asked on a test is being discussed. i posted a rather long reply this morning on how to use the nursing process in answering these kinds of questions that you might want to check out. you might find it helpful. my explanation is on post #26, but this is the thread:

    If you can pass nutrition without a problem you should definatly be able to pass Fundamentals. Where I took nutrition it was way more difficult that Fundamentals. For me I read over my chapters and my notes. I do the review questions at the end of the chapters in my Fundamentals book and I also do the study guide questions that came with my book. There was also a CD that came with my book and I go over those as well. The more questions you get familiar with the better.

    Well nutrition at our school is so simple. The first test was difficult but after that it was simple ive been getting in the 80's ever since then. But fundamentals is so difficult. Our last test no one passed. Everyone is in the low 70's 60's and 50's. But Daytonite one site helped me because i never used the nursing process to answer questions now that might can help me out alot.

    Thanks alot

    I am sorry that you are going through this, I am sort of in the same boat, but you can do this. Keep your head up, study hard and see you around graduation.
