In addition, I do have a full time job, (as do most of the other grads here), a family, and an ill father at this time. I am also a full time BSN student. I will be glad to help you, but impatience will not get you very much from me.
Please change your email settings, and notify me when you do, so I can send you the files. Please send me 1 PM.
Sep 8, '06Joined: Jul '06; Posts: 33Ok, about 30 minutes ago, I got home from taking NC1. Let me tell you it was no walk in the park. There are many situational questions. Difficult ones where I really had to think. I don't believe I studied enough to apply what I read, since I got a C. I am usually a good test taker, not this time. Since it was NC1, I am going to revise the way I read and study for NC2, which I plan on taking before the end of October. Not only do you have to know the material, but make sure during your reading you understand all the terminology in the books. For example, know what erythropoietin (not sure if I spelled that right.) is. Not much more I can tell you, the practice tests were a good indicator of what I knew though. I am more of a concrete thinker, recalling facts etc, and not so good at applying a theory. Good luck!

I think the best way to determine if you are ready for NC1 would be to take the practice exam that EC offers.
