Test failure

  1. Ugh. I'm in need of help. We have to have an 80 to pass class. I currently have exactly an 80 which gives me no leeway. I got an 86 first test, 78 second test, and 76 third. I'm going the wrong way. I'm trying to study the best I can but obviously it's not helping. Any tips, ideas, suggestions to help me study more efficiently?! I'm tactile, visual learner. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Trying looking up nursing mnemonics. Also the made incredibly easy books help. As I do not know which class it is you need help in, I cannot offer further advice.

    It would help to know what class you are having a problem with. I had studied by reading and rereading the material right before tests

    Do you have a study guide for the book?

    Sorry I left out some information. It's the fundamentals class. I do the questions in book and online. I also have the fundamentals success book which has nclex style questions.

    Try nursing pnemonics from memory notebook for nurses. Also depending on the textbook you use there may be online study guides, etc. that you can register for free. If you have a Littmann stethoscope I think you can register it for free to listen to heart sounds and such online. Fundamentals is a tough class but if you can talk to your teachers and ask your peers for help it should make it easier. Try the Made Incredibly Easy series out if you can because it can provide focused review in ways that are not confusing

    Then read and study as though failing is not an option.
