I am studying for boards and am doing very well when it comes to normal format questions. For some reason, most of the time I miss SATA questions! I really don't know what I can do about this! Any suggestions?

P.S. I am also currently doing Hust Review.

OMG me too! I'm so freaked out about them that I'm getting the Saundars Alternate Item for NCLEX book! I have heard really great things about it. I already bought it, it is on its way to my house! I miss like 80% of them in my practice tests :( I do well on multiple choice, its the SATA that kill my percentages!!!

Is it the Q&A book by Lippincott? That is the one I am studying now.

Best advice I have seen is to just consider each option separately. Don't get overwhelmed by trying to take in the entire question at once. Otherwise, I would not stress over it. Pretend each option to the question is only one question.

If you can believe it, my first question on the NCLEX last week was SATA. I was shocked, I think they're trying to integrate it to be as common as multiple choice.

With SATA, the best thing is not to be psychologically duped into thinking you have to select a certain # of answers every time. If it sounds fishy, it probably is, don't select it!
