NLN tomorrow, any tips?

  1. Help! I'm taking the NLN tomorrow morning and I'm terrified! I have been using the MacDonald book and have taken the sample tests and have gotten like 81 out of the 160 right. This is not good. I've been trying and trying. The science part and Vocab has really got me. The reading comprehension is ok. But lord those vocab words and some of the science have got me. It wouldn't be so bad if they were asking about the anatomy..LOL. Also i saw someone asking if you dont get to answer all of them before the test is almost over, should you leave questions blank or at least fill them in w/ something and hpe you guess the right ones? Please help!

    Don't leave anything blank!!!! If you have a minute left with 10 questions to go, fill in those 10 questions randomly.

    I had another study guide that said if you had to randomly guess, then choose one letter and always stick to it. "B" was always a good letter for me.

    Remember, there are 80 questions in the verbal section, not 60 like in the study book!

    Good Luck!

    There is an NLN sticky, you should look over it. A little advice is Don't panic, keep your eyes on the time, don't overspend your time on questions you do not know, and make sure you bubble EVERYTHING in even if you do not know the answer.

    Good Luck!

    Thank you Gotta, I appreciate it! I'm nervous! I heard somewhere else that B is a good thing to choose. Hopefully those extra 20 will be ones that I will know..LOL. that'd be great. Thank you!

    Thank you Mystiq, I will try and remember that. I think the only ones that will give me a lot of issues w/ time is the math. But I will watch it..Thanks...
