Is anyone studying anything specific for the physics section other than the red NLN book? I have never taken a physics class so my knowledge is limited to the small amount of physics we learned in Chemistry.

I'm taking my test on Monday the 12th. I honestly not hopeful cause I only have 21 points for my classes (I tried to re-take the one I got a "C" in but they won't let you unless you fail or go past the 10 years or whatever the timeframe is for science classes to expire) but as long as I do good on the NLN i might have a chance! Good luck everyone!! :)

I was wondering the same, but I did read on another thread that cliff notes would be a good source to help with the physics portion.

The test is done, let the waiting begin! Feedback for the test: The verbal section seemed pretty easy, just familiarize yourself with some of the vocab from the NLN book. This section was broken down into sections: The first 9 blocks were comprehension paragraphs, five questions per block and you had 40 minutes for each block. That was followed by 30 vocabulary questions. Next was the math which also seemed pretty easy. Mostly conversion questions, only a few algebra questions and a few questions on averages. Finally, the science section. I had one chemistry question and one physics questions, everything else was basic biology or A&P. The biggest problem for me on the science portion was that many of the questions on my exam were A&P2 questions (which I am taking this semester) so there were quite a few questions that I had to guess at simply because I haven't covered that material yet. When I finished, the gentleman overseeing the exam told me that scores probably wouldn't be available until tomorrow. Once I have my scores, I will post them here (good or bad!). Good luck to everyone taking the test this week!

So do you feel as tho the nln book prepared you for the science portion? or should we look over our old lecture notes as well?
