Day 1: Truthfully, there’s no fat to trim in the Leik book. You need to know it all. What I’ve done is read the first section which outlines the “how to” and addresses some common questions about the process plus test. For me, I’m already aware of the process, except the book helped with establishing how to schedule to retest. Retesting authorization is a process, but I say submit the required information and pay the fees as soon as possible because it will be a wait to get authorization. What I ran into was a hiccup with PSI system with allowing me to schedule a date even with authorization. If this occurs for you, call PSI directly. They were very helpful and we tried to resolve the issue via phone, but ultimately the representative scheduled my test for me. I’m use to having a computer in my face and found myself nodding off when reading the hard copy of the book. If your like me, download a copy of the pdf and save it to your email to access from any device anywhere at your convenience. Make sure to read the content when your most alert and have the least amount of distractions, for me this is in the morning and early evening. I’m currently reviewing HEENT section and making short-hand notes as if I am in class. That way I can review my notes again instead of reading the book again, like I’ve seen in other posts. Do what is best for you, what works for you. There is no bad way to approach studying, its the way you best remember material. Download the FNP Leik app on your phone and laptop/ computer to complete questions on each section as you finish. Happy studying my friend. Keep going!
