All I can say is wow...:dead:I passed this exam with a B. Um, I swear I studied my little heart out on it but this B was as good as I could do. I wasn't feeling really sure on most of my answers cuz they all looked the same! This exam was extremely comprehensive and challenging to me. I read some posts that said that EC put about 15 questions from the Practice Exam(s) on their test. Well, not mine. I probably noted about 3 or 4. I had plenty of the (Select All That Applies) and I'm not sure how many I bombed on. I used Saunders mostly and will definitely say that in order to pass, you must UNDERSTAND the interventions, labs, meds, ect. For some it was very easy...for the rest of us (lol) take your time! I've got 2 exams left. Have no idea where I will get the strength to go on. I'm taking ANY advice on LS2. I can feel the burn people. :confused:

Thanks guys.

Maybe something more in-depth than an NCLEX review book would help - like a textbook for unfamiliar study guide content. Good luck!

I bought my books on amazon used and if the book was too expensive I bought the edition before. Not much changes in content, the chapter numbers might change though. I couldn't see myself passing with A's without some of the books. Med-surg, Fundamentals, Nursing Issues, and the Maternal-child books were must haves. All the other books were not really as useful. But this all just my humble opinion, good luck.

Thanks student mom. I recently purchased the required texts. :nurse: Are you done with all of your exams? Just wondering about the bulk of LS2.
