    Jerry, I have a full-proof method that I used during my years of nursing school taking some pretty in depth tests on pharmacology and microbiology and things like that that I had absolutely no idea about. Sit down and start at the beginning of the information that you DO NOT know. For every item you don't know, write it out in question form. Use multiple choice or fill in the blank. Multiple choice worked fine for me. This works especially well for chemical names and drug names, things that are foreign to us. After you are finished, you may have 10, 20 or more pages of questions. Just make sure you cover everything you need to know for the test. Then, begin taking the test. Do it over and over and over. You might fail completely at first but eventually, you will begin to get the anwsers right. As you do, remove those questions from the test. You'll get to where you recognize the correct answer and blaze through the test. I guarantee this will work, but you may have to take your own "test" for days. Use word on your computer. It's easier to remove questions and make changes. I sometimes took these tests20 or 30 times but eventually, it stuck. I finished 2nd in the class by the way, and I'm pretty dense. lol Good luck. Ben

    Find someone you can use as a mentor and learn all you can from them. Good luck finding anyone like that. :laugh:

    Belive me guys, Jerry will do just fine. He's just nervous like we all were before we took the exams. I've been grilling him and he rarely misses any of the questions he's likely to be asked on the test.
