Ok. So we are ending our 5th week of a 12 week quarter. I have officially (as of today) failed my 2nd mother-baby test (score increased ) and failed my first med-surg test (8 points below minimum passing) with the next one this coming week. For both of the first tests, I made the same mistake twice; which was trying to write all the "important" information to the point of, not covering all the required chapters and left with only 1 day to study. Trust me, I know better but unconsciously fell into it. Now, I'm just at a loss at how to study, what to study, and how long to study. To add insult to injury, both of my instructors (one more than the other) lecture word for word out of the book instead of introducing and elaborating each concept which isn't helping me. I do the homework but, it doesn't count until you have an average of minimum passing for exams.With all that said, I'm seriously considering dropping OB (2 exams left not including specialty) or, dropping all together and walking away. I really want my RN but I don't want to fail (can only fail 2 nursing classes then dismissed from the program) and I most definitely don't want to drop temporarily only to return to THE SAME INSTRUCTORS who I'm not really learning from. Plus, I don't want to be potentially placed on financial aid probation. I'm upset, highly frustrated, and confused.
