baby-like I said, I have always felt meds is my weak spot as well (I am *fantastic* at rote memorization, which is what got me A's in my pharm classes.......retaining some of that 1.5 years after Pharm I.....not so much). The meds on my test were all known to me, and seemed relatively "easy", while I'm not guaranteeing that will be the case for you, I think your best bet might be really understanding those classes and the very common adverse side effects that pop up (like nephro/ototoxicity with the -mycins). Like I said, this was actually one spot where I felt like the meds on my NCLEX-PN test were more difficult than this one (BUT, keep in mind I did not study meds at all for PN, all I used was the NCLEX-3500 link, not a ton of meds on there). Also, one thing to keep in mind with the meds: while I do think it is very important to test yourself on these, and retain what you can, part of your "meds" knowledge will be safe administration........(i.e. the area of the IV has become cool, IV is no longer administering, what do you do?) In other words, you can probably slide by if you get a med question (or even a couple) wrong, as long as you know how to safely administer, etc. I would definitely say to prepare yourself as well as you can, don't just ignore meds, but study up on it, and if it's your ONLY weak spot, you're probably going to be okay.
