For me I focused on:
Heart and Lung sounds
Lab values and what they mean
Fetal heart sounds
Brain function/cranial nerves
Precautions (airborne, contact, standard, droplet)
and random things I came across and did not know
A couple days before the test I read through all of my notes.

I got it right"...and simply move on to the next question.I am using Saunders this time. I used Kaplan the first 2 times and failed both times
Many people have recommended Saunders so I hope it helps me this time!!! I'm so scared and everyday I lose more and more confidence in myself that I can actually pass on my 3rd try. God I hope I do!!!!!!
You HAVE to know if your rationale for answering the question correct was the correct rationale...just like you do when you get a question wrong.
I think this is where a ton of people go wrong.
Very often when I look at the rationale...I realize that the reason I choose the question, wasn't even close to the right line of thinking.
That means, if the question was worded differently...I would probably miss it.
