I tried to do 1-2 chapters a night. I got through about 50-75% of the book. Mostly just try to read over the pyamid points. I tried to concentrate on the systems and areas that I knew I had problems with. I did the test questions and then read the rationals, even for the ones I got right, just so I knew that I was focusing on the right things. I made sure to know the normal ranges of the lab values and electrolytes.

Sweetmya, I tried to respond to your pm, but it said that you had exceded your storare and could not send it so I will post it for you here:

I'm sorry, but I really can't tell you anything other then what I wrote in the thread. Take your time, don't panic, do the review questions and read the rationals for the answers. It helps you to understand the why of the question. I had an one certain instructor that would always question what we told her. For example, when we would tell her a patient had an unusually high Sodium level she would ask us why. Was it related to a disease process, was it a nutritional issue. It drove us nuts! But it also made us put together the pieces of the puzzle. When you can understand why something is happening then you have a clearer picture of what is going on, what to anticipate, and how to prevent something more serious from happening. Always look for the why. The rationals for the questions will help you with that.

Remember they don't expect you to know everything, they just want to be sure that you can function at a SAFE level as a BEGINNER nurse. That is all the advice I can give you. I'm sorry if it not a lot of help. Don't be too hard on yourself, trust your instincts, and do the best you can. :twocents:
