    Hello there,

    I was in the first class to take the boards on computer. I am a slow test taker and it took me 55 minutes to do 8 practice questions and 77 board questions. I was a little shocked that we studied so hard for a 55 minute test! Your actual learning will be in the first 5 years of nursing. Always seize the opportunity to get "pulled" to broaden your horizons. I worked in so many different areas my first 5 years that I am very marketable today. Good luck and pick the most reasonable answer of the four. When in doubt, airway, breathing, circulation...Good luck!
