Did all 205, but passed. This year has been so hard. Not only we're some of the classes hard but dealing with a class full of catty women was new to me.

I read the entire Saunders book and did 10 questions a day. This seemed to keep my mind answering the way the test wants you to answer.

Good luck to all who are studying!

Exactly. I did the whole Kaplan and did at least 50 to 75 computer sim questions a day. My exam is tomorrow. I have no idea if I am ready or not.

I read the strategies to answer the questions. If you get below 75% read the section you missed in the Saunders book. Read the Saunders book and highlight what you don't know. Memorize the lab values and medication endings. If you come across a long chapter in Saunders be sure to at least read the pyramids and what's in red.

Saunders is plenty. It covers everything and then some.

I passed mine too at 205. I answer Sander's like do 100 pages a day, read kaplan strategies in 2 days, and did Exam Cram. my whole review period was 3 months, for someone like me who was out of school for 2 years, I needed it.
