Just got my result and I passed heres what I did..
First: read the strategies in the kaplan book carefully. It gives
great Tips and strategies that you can practice later... DON'T do the
questions in the kaplan book they are too easy and have tons of typs
which makes me not trust the questions too much.
Second: Read nursing made insanely easy, spend time on each page
making sure you really truely remember the important stuff. read it
front to back. It shouldn't take you more than 2-3 hours even with
breaks. Its pretty funny so its not really a chore at all.
Third: Use the saunders CD and take a full comprehensive practice test
keep in mind strategies from the kaplan book. once you finish the
practice test (which you don't need to do in one sitting, you can
break it up) you should look at your score and print out the results.
next go through the review of every question (even those you got
right) and make sure you understand why the answer is correct and/or
why the one you chose was wrong...
Fourth: Go to the study section and select the sections you got 50% or
lower on, OR the TOP 10 areas that you did the worst on. Work on those
study questions 1-2 hours a day (or more if you can stand it) every
day, make sure you understand the rationales, if you are really
unclear about a question look it up and write yourself some short hand
notes in a notebook or pad of paper. Do this for a week (7 days)
Fifth: Take the short quizzes in each of the areas you have been
studying. If you get less than 70%... continue to do more study
questions in that area until you are able to get over 70% consistently
on 3 quizzes in that study area. Make sure you go over every question
you take to make sure you understand the rationale.
Sixth: Take another comprehensive test (there are two available on the
cd). check your progress..go over the questions. any areas you still
are having trouble on review them in your book and do more study
Seventh: The night before your exam re-read nursing made insanely
easy.. (this book is awesome lots of pictures to help you remember_)
make sure it all sticks ... this book helped me soooooooooooooooo much
on my test....if you have time before your exam on the day of the test
look over some of the ones you have trouble remembering again...
Guys buy Prioritization, Delegation, and Assingment na book by

something on a specific question.
