That's a very good suggestion - Thanks! Unfortunately, I have one month to prepare for the exam. I should already know all this stuff as I've been practicing, but they (the people who write this test) make it sort of tricky - it's not actually "real world" stuff all the time.
What I am taking is a clinical simulation exam. There are 11 scenarios, each a different respiratory situation (ie-car crash with chest injury, premature infant who is blue & not breathing, etc.) and they give you the initial scenario, then give you choices of what you want to do next. Then, you move into the next stage of what to do for the patient, etc. They give no indication of whether you're right or wrong (even if the "physician disagrees" it doesn't always mean your answer is wrong...) and the scenarios end suddenly most of the time (no outcome for the patient.)
You have to pass pretty much all 10, I've taken the test 2 times & failed it by like 5-10 points each time. Very close. So I'm really nervous about it, this is my last chance to take it - if I fail this time I have start at square 1 with the 1st board exam (this is the 3rd.)
Anyway, if I don't make it ... I'll seriously consider taking that class!!!!
Stay calm and carry on.
