I'm starting too! Taking both at the same time... really nervous because I see so many posting about failing the courses. And that there's not a whole lot of info on what is included. All I can tell is that it's not a traditional course/exam.

I just passed both right before Christmas and wanted to tell you guys, it is not tricky, just study and use your critical thinking skills !! I would read something and then think about how it apply to me / my patients, that made it more "real" to me and I also took notes. I used a seperate notebook for each section: 498 and 496, (writing page #'s next to my notes, so I could look things up easier later). I also flagged my books with post it's , using a different color for each module "-). Good luck !!!

I am also taking both sections. I am very scare about the tests since there is not a lot of info on how it's structured and what to expect. Good luck to everyone that is taking the FCCA!

I took 496 first, now in 498. I can say the hardest part of 496 was getting used to the format...AND my nerves. Good luck to all!!
