Just wondering for those who have used the EC practice exams what score were you comfortable with before you actually took the real exam.

for myself, 70's-80's were my comfort zone.

Luna,

Thanks for your reply and congrats on the new job and move! I hope you continue to post, cause "I need you!":D

If you were comfortable taking the final exam after 70-80's on practice test does that mean that the exams are easier. Or, that the exam content is close to the practice exams so you're better prepared?

Reason I'm asking is I am working full time in an busy, busy, busy occupational clinic and trying to work on the RN so I need the least resistant, less time consuming way to get it done (hopefully in 12 months). I'm using Lisa Arends, Study Notes 101, EC practice exams, and the course outlines exclusively to get through. I got A's in LPN but had to work for them.

All your advise is appreciated!

Nicoler1008,

:o! sorry about failing your first exam. I haven't taken any exams yet so don't know how to advise. However, I had a friend that used the College Network (Chancelior) materials (I think is similar to RUE) and also failed the her first exam. She abandoned the materials and came up with her own plan and passed all the way through . . . and is an RN now. I researched what other EC students were doing and came up with the plan that I just previously posted. (Lisa Arends, Study Notes 101, EC content outlines and practice test) . . . Hope it works.

Huh? Did I get hired somewhere else and move somewhere and no one told me? I'm confused. LOL
