A&P and micro are, generally, considered the most difficult pre reqs. Taking them together is not easy and will take a lot of study time. I wouldn't advise taking them together unless your a strong science student. Good luck.
I have to disagree with a previous poster lol my brain seemed to do better when I crammed for a test. I guess the stress and adrenaline really woke my brain up. But I've learned that if you can't explain it to someone else, you don't know it. Study your book, then when you're done close it, and if you can explain to yourself exactly what you just studied (in detail) then you'll be fine on your test. Good luck!

It would definitely make the transition from Lpn to rn smoother and quicker. I would if I could have when I was in lpn school. But I don't honesty know if I could have. Lpn school takes up soooooâ€‹ much of your time and it's very fast paced, it's really tough. You don't want to add on an unnecessary class and then having to drop it or, worse, fail lpn school because of it. I would think carefully before trying to add on more.
Be ready for a tough semester!! In order to stay on top of everything I made sure to study every â€‹day for at least two or three hours (or at least try to so you don't end up cramming ). Micro was much harder imo so I put more time into studying for it. But it is possible!
Hmm I've never heard of test banks either, until now. However, this kind of situation is exactly why I don't study with anyone else. Been burned too many times because of fellow students. I've never cheated on a test and never will. I'm perfectly happy earning my own grade. I would like to hear how it turned out for the OP, though.
I think some schools will not make you re take them as long as you've been practicing as a nurse and have already taken the classes once. I believe my school does it. You'll have to look around at other schools to check. Good luck to your aunt!
