    Exams that appeal to Paramedics

    Congrats, getting a B on LS3 is no easy task. Good job. LS2 is easier than LS3, not nearly as in depth. So can you pm those amazing study materials for CCRN, CEN that you were talking about?

    CCEMTP here and LS1 was unbelievably easy and so was Repro. I made A's on both, they were beyond simple. LS2 was ok, and LS3 was the worst test I've ever taken in my life, I took them all in August so this was recent. If you don't mind, pm those amazing materials you're talking about, please.

    Save the date!

    They told me the same thing, April to June. I had my app in the first week of November. I also got lucky and got a cancellation date. I also test 1/9 and I'm testing at Grady. Where are you testing at?

    Great news. Did you call and get a date or did you get it by being on the cancellation list? I'm on the cancellation list with fingers crossed!

    Any New Excelsior Students?

    Right now I'm just reading the study guide and learning mnemonics. I'm gonna do ROb's CPNE but I'm torn about a hands on workshop, I've thought about doing Sherri Taylor's workshop in Atlanta but I'm living on a disability pension which doesn't leave much room in the budget.

    Excelsior Micro practice exam help!!

    Have you taken an EC practice exam yet? I highly recommend those as a way to see where you're at with the subject and as a study tool. The rationales for the answers are very helpful.

    Unfortunately you won't be able to do Reproduction first. You have to take the exams in phases which consist of phase one and phase two. You can't move on to phase two until you're done with phase one and Reproduction is in phase two. The good news is that Reproduction was one of the easier exams. I had no OB/GYN experience other than a 12 hour shift in L&D during my paramedic clinicals ten years ago and I've never had any in-depth education on reproduction other than what I've picked on from previous relationships and I made an A on that one. I'm not kidding when I say it was easy, super easy. I also highly recommend joining the Excelsior Nursing group on Facebook. Lots of people in there, including yours truly, that will share their experiences and thoughts. Even if you don't do Facebook, it's worth it just for that. I honestly thought about deleting my Facebook until I stumbled on that page.

    Excelsior Micro practice exam help!!

    Transitions was as hard as micro, then the next six were pretty easy and the last one, LS3, was the hardest of them all.

    Excelsior Micro practice exam help!!

    I think (it's been about a year) that I made a 45 on practice test A and a 55 on test B. Made a B on the real exam. It was a tough one.

    I'm waiting on a CPNE date then I'll be done. As far as study tips StudyGuide101 is an incredible resource. Their flash cards are great. The EC practice tests are a must have and Saunders NCLEX review was a good supplement but their test questions are way easier than EC exams.

    I understand, and as I said, I truly do hope it works out for you. As for EC's exams, I did most of them in a week, devoting roughly forty hours of study time to each exam, so you can easily beat your self imposed deadline if you choose. You sound motivated and that's crucial to doing a program like this. I wish you well with your studies.

    I think you're taking a big gamble by going this route. Good luck and I hope it works out like you've planned.
  14. I spent about 40 hours of study time for each exam. The practice exams were very helpful with the exception of LS3, the practice exams were useless for that exam. I probably should have spent 80 hours studying for that one.

    Were you led to believe that The College Network was a degree granting institution? Were you pressured to sign the contract by a salesman that wouldn't take no for an answer? If so you may have adequate grounds to get out of the contract and you should call your state's Department of Consumer Affairs and your state's Attorney General's office and the Attorney General's office in the state of Indiana. Tell them that you were misled or pressured to sign the contract. Did you pay by credit card? If so, call your credit card company and explain to them how you were misled or pressured and that you want to dispute the charges. Offer to forward this link to your credit card company... Test preparation or predator? The College Network faces complaints, lawsuit If you weren't misled or pressured, consult an attorney as you may be in breach of contract.
