    Took the final for the math portion of toolbox class today. Learning so much! But, do we need to memorize the conversions once we start the program??

    Do any current students have any advice on what extra books to purchase outside of the bundle? Also what medical terminology flash cards are the best? I think someone mentioned the best ones to buy at orientation but I can't find my notes about it. Should we buy flashcards for pharmacology as well? I feel like I should at least start on flash cards for medical terminology and pharmacology so if you have any suggestions or used some that worked well for you can you give us some insight please! Thanks!

    I put them on a 3x5 and laminated it and carried it everywhere. Studied it whenever I had a chance. you need it for other semesters as well.

    the best study guide i can recommend is the nclex style questions in evolve and nurselogic as far as 101 goes...

    for pharm i suggest making your own flashcards for the prototype drugs with the important information that the instructor highlights (at least this was my method for success for online pharm with R)

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone knew the best place to get a physical, for the cheapest? (All these supplies and requirements are making me so broke! haha) Thanks for the help!

    Does your insurance cover them? i just went to my Dr and had one done and just cost me my co-pay. You can also go to Walgreens or CVS, but I think they cost like $60ish!

    They do physicals at The Vaccine Center too (where I got my TB test). Not sure how much

    I got mine done at CVS because I don't have a primary care dr.. It was about $65

    My insurance usually does cover it, but the doctor I usually go to says that they don't anymore and want to charge me $80. I will check around. Thanks everyone!
