    Also, if you know "normal" you are in good shape -- a lot of that is common sense on the test! I would review it & make sure you understand the basics.

    Alea,

    May I have your email address, I can't seem to get the private message option to work on here. I would like to ask you something. =). Unfortunately, you can't post emails on here, so maybe you can private message me with your email?

    I took it in the order you have up there NUR 106, 224, 328, and 330. I found the modules helped I passed all of mine. 224 and 328 were kinda hard....one is med-surg and peds. I think you will meet your goal I studied the longest on peds because it is so much to remember from birth to 18yrs. Good luck
    804_LPN,

    I was wondering if had already taken N328? Could you please private message me your email, I've taken the test yesterday and I would like to ask you something about the test? Thanks! I would send you my email on here, but apparently we are not allowed to display that info. =/

    Has anyone complete N328- Nursing Care of the Child and Family. I would like to compare answers with someone. It should be on the blackboard website. If you log in, go to "Nursing Challenge Exams", Click "N328" on the left side and then on the left it shows "test 1", next to that it will say "review".

    I just want to compare and review my answers with someone else. =)

    That feature in blackboard has been turned off now. What a bomber! you cannot review again what you missed

    I am getting ready to start the process of studying for the challenge exams. I'm trying to get this done without going through TCN. I found 3 of the 4 CSMs on Ebay, but they are from 2005. Is this the most recent CSM for these exams?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, I am new to allnurses so please excuse me..! I have taken N106 (easy - just study the module & do the review questions) & N328 (tougher but manageable!). Does anyone have any advice on N224? I take it in two days...from what I hear the test is very difficult & the module isn't very helpful? Not sure where I should focus my studying (seems like that is all I have been doing lately!). Thanks!!
    I am new also. Just wanted to know if you arent using TCN where do you take these 4 exams? Are you already enrolled with ISU? Thanks all!!

    The only way to find out for certain is to check with TCN. My CSMs have a copyright 2006 but not sure if anything changed. TCN's website or customer service can check if you have the newest version.

    Only the study guides come from TCN, you can take the exam at any testing center at local university or Sylvan learning center.

    Yeah, I know ... I'm just trying to avoid talking to them. I really want to get this done without going through them. Thank you.
