I'm studyin transitions myself at the min. I test on it Friday 9/3...we'll see how it goes. It seems so cut and dry that it's boring at best lol. I'm trying not to take too much time on this one and move on.

When are you gonna take your transitions test?

If i can get through the reading i'll be taking it monday night (Aug 30) but if i get behind because we are going out of town this weekend then i may reschedule it to the week after next around sept 7. I can't take much more time than that though cause A&P put me so far behind...well scratch that... I put myself so far behind freaking out over A&P that i need to get back on my schedulet to get all nursing exams done before Jan.

A&P through EC was a TOUGH exam i wont even lie. I used IP interactive physiology 10 system suite CD ROM disc and it helped alot with both visual and audio. I also downloaded the lectures from that correlates with the text book by martini, and i looked up on youtue lectures for A&P from the university of berkley. not to mention bought the demystified series book, A&P the easy way, and found some other CD ROM discs to use as well. I actually just sold all my A&P materials to someone else taking that class right now! =) I havve ISBN numbers if anyone needs them i'll post them in alittle bit of everything i used!

I got a B on the exam

lol...yeah I stressed out over the A/P exam myself, got horribly low scores on the practice exams both times (like mid 40's) but when i finally steeled my nerves and took it, I passed with a "B" w/out problems. I was def proud to have passed that exam b/c it's def a hard one. I think the only other one i'll stress out over that much is MICRO:(
