Thursday I took my first Pharmacology test and it was a “scratch off” similar to a lottery ticket, pretty awesome because it gives you instant feedback and you know your score immediately. It was 30 questions multiple choice 2 pts each and I got a 54/60 (which equals 90%) and it was a little lower than I wanted of course, but I’m okay with it. I think first tests are always harder because you never really know what will be on the test, but pray you covered the right stuff, haha.
Monday for our foundational (7 credit) class we have a test that I’m more troubled about because it covers more than just what we’ve covered in lecture like the skills we’ve been checked off on. We have to average higher than 73% on all of our tests or we risk having to take the class over again. I’m thinking I’ll be just fine but you know how that can stress a student out.
Either way I better get better at these darn questions so that in 2.5 years I’ll be set to take the test. My classmates think I’m insane for practicing these questions so early, but my hubby agreed with XY’s way of thinking that the earlier the better. My hubby said that I’ll have 2.5 years of practice and my classmates will not, who knows?? Maybe I can smoke the NCLEX exam in less than an hour; we’ll see which of my classmates will be talking then!
