FILL in THE BLANK questions?

  1. How should it be answered during the real thing?
    Will they require a specific answer <word for word> for it to be counted correct or will similar ideas / another term will do ok?

    As far as I know the only fill in the blank questions are math based. I think that you answer up to 2 decimel places. But watch for unit conversions.

    I wouldn't stress over them too much. They seem to be one of the least common types of the alternate-format questions.

    From my experience, the fill in the blank usually only applied to the math questions. I would love to hear from anyone else who had a different experience. I used to get frustrated with those as well while using the Mosby CD because I have bad spelling. One letter wrong, and the computer counted it as wrong. My first question on NCLEX was a fill in the blank math question. Thank goodness that was all I got.

    True, true...I got mostly 'pick all that apply' (the nightmare ones). I am grateful that I didn't get any diagrams or having to place certain things in order.

    Hi,

    I have another question are you suppose to just put the digits in for the math questions or do you put the label in as well, such as mg, mL etc...

    You MUST put down mg, mL, etc... and the decimels in the right place. I think that you have to round it down to two decimal points to the right. Mine came exact on NCLEX, so that wasn't an issue. I think it had something to do with how many mLs to place in a syringe.
