    I dunno ... they're both good! StudyGroup101 seems to be a little more in-depth and isn't really written in a "notes" format. Lisa's notes were great for driving home key points when I was reviewing right before the exam.

    I ended up buying both! I guess I will use studygroup as my study guide and follow the notes after going through the study guide and before the test. Thanks everyone.

    I had a terrible experience with my purchase. I got a blank CD and she told me that I had to pay to ship it back because it was beyond the exchange date. I bought the package deal so I hadn't looked at the CD before the exchange date. She says that people always think the CD is blank when it is not. But apparently I am competent enough to figure out how to read five CDs but not the last one. So she makes the customer pay and costs a huge time delay because of her own error of sending a blank CD.

    Also, my wife is the nurse going through Excelsior and beware because she has found errors as she has worked through the material. My wife was valedictorian in her LVN school, became assistant director of nursing in two years as a nurse, and has also gotten all A's on all the exams she has taken thus far.

    lisa arends is all i use. i have nothing but good things to say about her stuff. the only thing was with the last cd i bought it took about 6 days longer for shipping. this probably was on the error side of the snail mail service. otherwise it is my preferred method of studying.

    Don't buy from lisa arends. The material from yogadakota on ebay is way better. It is also much cheaper. No hassles at all.

    Txspadequeen921 are you saying that you do not use the textbook but take the test SOLELY with her notes?

    Movieluver, have you taken any exams and used togadakota's stuff? I wouldn't want to buy textbooks for NC1. I'm truly an audio and visual learner. Reading those books will get on my nerves!!!!

    PLEASE RESPOND.THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i have books just in case (not the ones that ec recommends) i need to clarify something. i think i have clarified something twice. i also rummage through the yahoo groups, sometimes i look at the seth test. i always do the ec practice test. my last exam is 1/10 and for this one i bought the istudysmart guide (via email) just because i could not wait for lisa to ship me her guide.

    I have been looking for Lisa's notes and I can not find them. I have looked on ebay but when I type in Lisa Arends notes, I end up with Lisa Arena. I need fund of nursing.
    Can anyone help. Reading this book and answering the questions in the study guide just seem not to help.
    Please help me
