Write an essay where you tell us what test preparation practices work best for you and why.

When preparing for a test, the first thing I do is look at the objectives for the week we are being tested on. I check my knowledge against what I should know for the exam and what I don't know, I study. I take any online practice tests to ensure I know what I need to know. When it comes time for the exam, I try not to stress about it. Stressing on what I am not sure I know only takes time away from the exam itself. My philosophy is "If I don't know it by now, I have no business being a nurse" and so far that has been my truth. I always make sure I am prepared to be the best nurse I can be, my patients deserve nothing less.
