Question about content guides


  • Specializes in PACU. Has 11 years experience.

i'm studying for lifespan 2 and i'm getting overwhelmed by all the drug names. there are only a few mentioned in the content guide so are those the only drug names for each category i need to know? i just don't want to get into the test and be surprised with some drugs i didn't study!!

any other pointers for ls2? i'm really nervous about this one as everyone seems to have a hard time with it.

there were not that many drug qs when i took my lifespan 2. i did not look at the content guide. i memorized all the drugs mentioned from the practice exams. and i read the medication sections (psych & endocrine) in saunders review book.

good luck. don't psych yourself out too much. this exam is just like the rest. study the same way you've been doing.

thanks angel! trying not to get too crazy about it as i have done well on everything else. but this is also my weakest areas so i'll be putting a lot more effort into this exam. i'm just studying the drug categories and the actual drugs listed on the content guide. hopefully they stick to that!!

If LS 2 is the same as NC 5, I don't remember drugs being heavily emphasized on.. I would just focus on the ones listed in the guide.
