Thanks for the info. I've been dealing with Avedia - seems very helpful. Yes, I want to go to Antelope, CA. My mum went out there 6 years ago - I can't wait!!
Good luck to you with interviews/studying for dreaded NCLEX!! Hope you keep us all posted!

I only have praise for my contact at Adevia too - X- she's been fantastic & is always there to speak to, however silly the question is.
Good luck to all of you & keep some for me - I'm trying to persuade them to expedite my I-140 - despite retrogression - because I want all my paperwork ready & waiting for when retrogression lifts. It's proving to be more of a pain than it should be.
We are willing to pay but the USA company hasn't done it before & they get sooooooooo difficult if they are asked to something outside the "norm"!!! Adevia support me 100% - it's just at the USA end there's a problem!!Last edit by sirI on Jan 22, '07 : Reason: removed recruiter name

It really was the final thing that helped me nail the strategies. My scores went up from an average 80-85% up to 90-95% after the course. The Mosby on-line CAT test is a good final thing to take - it predicts your chance of passing - it gave me a 99% probability - which also helped me relax a little. NOT that I wasn't as scared as anyone else but just knowing that I had given myself the best chance I could helped me to channel my adrenaline in a positive direction!
N-CLEX is like a game - if you can work out their "code" you stand a real chance of getting a question correct even if you know squat about the topic. There are key words to look out for that help you dismiss or keep answers & there are ways of writing things that also alert you to right or wrong answers. Kaplan live course & the Saunders books are (IMHO) the best for helping you to identify those strategies - they are truly a winning combination!
Also do check out Suzanne4's course - you can get it by requesting it from her & giving her your email. It's based around the Saunders Review book & really helped me a lot too! It's a 6 week review & also has some peripheral info that proved more than useful when it came to my exam.
If I did it with 75 questions, first time, as an "old fart" nurse, years out of school - than so can ALL of you!!!
