I am currently a medic in Florida who has just started the Excelsior program. My first class is Microbiology ( a little daunting)!
Has anybody used any of the study guides from companies such as Chancellors? and if so were they helpful? I see them for sale on ebay(micros on there now) but I am a little wary as to their usefulness.
If anyone has any input please let me know.
PS if their are any other medics from FL out their I would be interested in knowing if you had any probles getting your State license
I did my micro many years ago and used a RUE Study Guide. It was long and tedious but I feel very directed and I passed the test with a high B grade.I was very happy with that.I read every inch of the text book/study guide/and answered the end of chapter questions .No one talks about RUE on these threads, I notice.( Just a few negative comments here and there)I found there guides very time consuming, yes, but VERY GOOD.I got an A in American lit--I studied for almost 7 mos. but the guide was RIGHT ON.I got A's in all my nursing exams using RUE materials for my ADN and their CPNE tapes were excellent also(I still have them--10 yrs. old but perfect!)Anyone interested?I took my time and I learned the information.
I need to take BIOLOGY for BSN any sugestions out there?????Also the dreaded question---HOW DOES SOMEONE PASS DSST IN STATISTICS without being a wizard? What calculator to buy if I'm brazen enough to attempt it??Or does someone know of an on-line Statistics that is passable???
Hope someone out there can give me study material advice??? Just know about RUE @ this point. I may go with Rue again if I seriously commit to EC for my BSN. I am looking for other students experiences to compare.I am currently reading a guide in World religions(TCN) I bought it with Art of the Western World on ebay.Anyone test out on those?????
I'm new to this site.
I have no regrets getting my ADN thru Excelsior.(Then Regent's College).I learned alot along the way!.Good luck everyone!
