    So who would you see first?

    A pt with asthma type symptoms or MI type symptoms? I made this question up....

    Well Tildor if you are familiar with the pathophysiology you can figure out the answer. Let's see:

    Asthma - airway constriction due to inflammation. (Air)

    Myocardial Infarction - interruption of the blood supply to the heart. (Circulation)

    Although both require immediate attention, Asthma would be considered priority.

    When in doubt go to your books and practice questions, that's the best way to evaluate your progress and understanding.

    I'm taking my exam here next week, unfortunately for the 3rd time, but hey, they say 3rd time's a charm. After reading this, it helped me justify that what I'm currently doing to prepare this time is the right thing to do. I too am using only 3 sources (Kaplan, Pearson review questions, and saunders). I am greatly optimistic this time and feel that the strategies I learned from Kaplan and Saunders has opened my eyes to new ways to take the exams.
    Reading this also gave me a lot of confidence too. It's great to hear success stories. Really a confidence builder. Thank you.
