Well for me most of my questions were priority questions like what patient would I see first kind of thing, I also had nutrition and 2 calculation questions. The first time testing I myself knew nothing about calculations and it was very difficult for me so I focused on this part more when I was studying. I also hit the books hard on trying to find the best answer to questions that i new nothing about, that helped a lot since I had about 2 to 3 questions that I honestly new nothing about. I would say know your normal values and if you encounter a question that you know nothing of use the knowledge and eliminate the answers that you know fall within normal values. (I hope that made sense) but this is what I can give you as far as advice.
I took a review course that was outlined to about a month every saturday 8 hours ms. Esther Gomez was great she is in california she actually was the start to me believing I can pass my test, that was in march. After that I studied at work i did questions and reviewed what I knew where my weak points. I tested November 12th and I actually cried before I took my test because I wanted this so bad and I knew the day had come to do it! I cried while I prayed before I went into the testing center and then looked in the mirror and said I can do this. I looked over the normal wbc, rbc, hgb etc and then off to test I went. I took my time with each question and took the answer I choose back to the question to see if it made sense. I took my break when I was given the time to, and looked in the mirror and repeated the words ms. gomez gave our review class, "as long as your still answering questions, YOUR STILL FIGHTING FOR THAT LICENSE AND YOU HAVE A CHANCE!" Got back in the test and continued the test shut off on me and I walked out with my head held high and nervous... I recieved a text from my mom today while i was at work and my results came to her house (i use to live with her then moved out) I HAD PASSED!!!! I cried at work for joy because lord knows I wanted it so bad. There is hope for us that did not pass the first time, it doesnt make you an less intelligent then those who passed the in their first try! GOOD LUCK and I hope I may have helped or encouraged you a little tonight. ****sorry for the long post lol**** *wine
