    passed! math is a piece of cake. Pharm side effects/adverse is a little tricky but like everyone suggested, know the catagories and the main meds given in each one. There were a few I've never heard of, but the majority are well-known.

    You can do it! :-)

    Congrats on passing the test! I take it on Thurs. I'm pretty nervous. If you dont mind me asking GSpice, what did you get? Im pretty confident on the math and I know the major drugs used for each category so hoping Ill do OK.

    Best of luck but you won't need it. :-)

    I feel like a loser, I failed by a question she said when I take it again it"ll be the same drugs, but different questions. I don't remember the drugs..haha. Does anyone remember the drugs you got? I'm super nervous now and I don't want to lose this!

    I'm sorry Kate.
    I was kind of in a hyper-nervous state when taking it, so I remember the drugs being the MAjOR and most common drugs of each class, with the exception of 2 or 3 being ones that I'd never heard of.
    If you only missed it by 1 question, you should pass next time!

    good luck Kate! :-)

    I just failed it too. 78%. They gave me no info about next test. I take it on Monday. RN Kate we should def talk. I don't know how to send messages but we might be able to helP each other out. I even got a math wrong. Think it had to do with reconstitution.
