I really wouldn't cram, I would review practice test questions. Test as soon as you can. Wear ear plugs for your test if easily distracted. Do what you need to relax, everyone I have known that did not pass the first time was strictly anxiety. Read the question read the answers, then re-read question and make SURE you know what it is asking. Remember your priorities airway, breathing, circulation, and you are the RN what are you going to do. Relax and breath do something relaxing the day before and go in thinking you have been chosen to take all the questions.

You're welcome! :)! This is my first take. I wish us the best of luck. Are you only doing questions and just review over the content you lack?
