question about med math on nclex

  1. For the NCLEX...
    when you have a med math question and it is fill in the blank, is there a rule regarding what decimal point you round to? I can't find it anywhere in my Kaplan online seminar. Any help would be great! My big day is Tuesday!

    This is a VERY good question, and one that I was going to ask also. I don't know the answer either. PLEASE, if anyone knows, please let us know.

    Hmm, that is a good question. I didn't even think about rounding. I had at least 8 math fill in the blank questions. I know..crazy. I didn't have to round, as I got perfect numbers. Eg. 2.1, 0.5. I never wound up with answers such as 5.333 or 1.568.

    Good luck and relax.
