I am so anxious to get this over with! I keep thinking, "did I study enough?", but then I think that if I don't know it now I will not learn it in 4 hours!!
Congratulations on being finished.
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!!
Dec 11, '02Occupation: Student Nurse Joined: Dec '02; Posts: 8Woo! I just finished my last final this morning! So now my semester from hell is over! I had five finals to get through and I made it through 'em all. Passed my lab practical with flying colors..though that might be the only one. Had pharm and patho both yesterday and wow did patho kick me in the behind. But it no longer matters because it's over!

Does anyone else have an instructor who counted their answer completely wrong (as in zero points) for capitalizing glossopharyngeal nerve (which was the right answer and spelled correctly) and then she herself misspelled the vagus nerve as "vegas" in another area of the test %#@##**@*!@#!@#!@???
I had to vent!

That's too funny! I had an exam that was 46 questions so when I got my exam back I was astonished to find that I had missed questions 47,48,49, & 50. Go figure.
Dec 11, '02Occupation: Student Nurse Joined: Sep '02; Posts: 66; Likes: 1Thank God it is over! I have ridden right around 90% on each test until this last one. It was a cumulative with more emphasis on the last chapters of the term r/t sleep, communication, death, dying &grief, electrolytes, and infusion therapy.
Well, its a good thing I remembered the cumulative stuff and the infusion therapy 'cause I bombed the second half of the test on, communication, death, dying &grief. I think I was focusing so much on the "science" <the stuff that can kill people, if you're not careful > of electrolytes and infusion therapy that I forgot about the other stuff. OOPS.
I'll end up with a B, but that was not what I had in mind for finishing out the term.
The psychology, communication, death/dying stuff just seems so whishy-washy that it makes it hard to study for. Does anyone else feel that way?

Dec 11, '02Joined: Dec '01; Posts: 285; Likes: 1My final is tomorrow! I'm sick just thinking about it. I can get a 60% on it & still get a B in the class. Of course, I will try to get more than a 60!
