Congrats on passing your first! For Transitions, its mainly memorization. StudyGuide101 covers that material pretty good.

My suggestions are to always use the EC practice exams, and to schedule your exam ahead of time to give yourself a deadline -- that kept me focused and able to study with a clear goal date. Good luck!

Welcome and I agree with Lunah always use the EC Practice Exams and schedule your exams that really made me study and helped with procrastination. :lol2: I also used Saunders NCLEX review even saw a few of the questions from there on the exams. Good Luck and by the way where do you live in Florida - I live just south of St Pete.

Congratulations!! it's a good feeling to pass and moving forward. for transitions definately use SG101. it really helped me alot with that one and i did do some of the required reading but its really boring stuff, imo...mostly memorization is all that it is, you'll have no problem passing this exam.

Good Luck :)

hi, congrats on passing! i am in the same boat except i live in MN. let me know what you find helpful. So overwhelmed with all the info for this exam. my head is spinning.

Congrats!! Transitions is very dry--be happy you got through it, so boring! I would use the practice exams every time as well. And Lunah is right--give yourself a deadline and don't change it (unless you really have to). Good luck on the rest! I am finished waiting for my FCCA to come in the mail

thanks everyone for your comments that really helps a lot. it's so much information but i will get through it. i just gotta stay positive and focus. to those who are still doing exams good luck... and to the ones who are finished congrats!! :)
