Guys trust me on this, if you really study quick facts along with the 35 page packet file the test will be so much easier than you’d expect. You’d be able to rule out answer choices. Now the questions wouldn’t be so basic, you’d have to figure out what it’s asking esp in the answer choices e.g. signs & symptoms will lead you to the topic.
When I started the test (RN) I was taking my time as I was reasoning the choices. The computer gave me 3 breaks and I took all 3. After my last break is when I realized that I wasn’t going to complete the entire test. I was going to run out of time. So I was rushing to complete as much as I can before it ended(well that was a bad idea. I should have taken my time since they’re only gonna grade my last 60 questions ).
Lesson learned, even if I don’t pass I know I will on my next try!!! Because I felt prepared and I know I was close. Time expired at 226.
I hope this at least help some of you prepare.
