  1. Looking for some "second-hand" PANCE review books for sale... Anybody??? Thanks.
  2. Does anyone know what scores on the Kaplan tests, the PANCE review tests in the PANCE book, exammaster, or other correlate with passing the PANCE? I am considering rescheduling my PANCE date and want a good assessment of my preparation.... Also, I see that many people have listed "taking the packrats". Are you taking packrats you have already done and reviewing them, or are there additional packrats online that you can take! Thanks!
  3. I take the PANCE on Friday..Any last words of advice??

    Took PANCE and freaking out

    Hi everyone. I took the PANCE this week and cannot handle the post-test anxiety. So when I take tests, I always write down the questions that I don't 100% know the answer, so that I can go back. I did that when taking the PANCE and I feel like I absolutely knew around 60% (although towards the end I was less than diligent in doing this since I was frickin exhausted). The rest ranged from being between two answers and not knowing what the heck the question was even talking about, so I figure that hopefully I got at least 70%, most likely more - but while that would make me feel okay for a school test, it means nothing for the PANCE. Because of the different test difficulties, the ridiculous way they score it, and how you're graded against others, I have no idea how I did and am freaking out. I've seen people on here get 70% and still fail. I also heard that scores are released every Thursday, but classmates took it last week and still haven't heard back. I pray I find out tomorrow, not only for my sake, but also my roommate's! I have a job lined up and am getting married soon - I need to pass so that I keep my job and actually have an income again! Anyone else freaking out or with words of advice for dealing with this? Thanks.
  5. Hey! If anyone is currently using the kaplan q bank to prep for the PANCE, please inbox me.. Thanks ;)
  6. Hi everyone.. Im having a difficult time passing the PANCE exam. I was considering taking the three day course CME resources. 3 day 100% guarantee?? how accurate is this? I unfortunately have failed this exam several times and would really be interested in one on one tutoring. Im in St. Petersburg Florida. Is there anyone willing to help a fellow PA out?? will compensate. :smile: I would really appreciate any insight on taking action for prepping for this exam. I own the chicago review...didn't help.
  7. I have put together 3 practice exams for the PANCE and PANRE that are from the UMDNJ certified review course. They are online and meant so simulate the actual PANCE or PANRE that you will be taking. They are free and 120 questions each (for a total of 360 unique questions). I am still making some grammar corrections but wanted to get them posted since many people will be taking their PANCE this month. Here is the link... I hope you get a lot out of them. http://thepalife.com/pance-panre/
  8. I looked a lot for things like this when studying/stressing about pance..so figured I would post to help others. I studied using the green/black AAPA book- mostly just scanning topics I was unsure of. My school also offers a 4 day review. AAPA pretest 65% Post-test 75% Packrat 68-79% NCCPA Practice- overall: right in the middle of the high BUT borderline in all subjects (just different ones on each of the two test) except cardiology and plum (always High) PANCE 600 Hope this can ease some fears, happy studying :)
  9. Hi everyone, my name is Isabella, and I have been a family practice PA for 6 years. I am studying for my first PANRE, I took my first PANCE in 2006 and placed in the 99th percentile and now after years of no official studying, it's that time again. Let me just say sorry for making my first post "promotional", but I started studying today by writing a study section on my new blog (writing is a cool way to remember things, and blogging it makes it more fun), if anyone wants to join me and read my blog, you are welcome, I will add a new post with topics everyday :) just go to http://www.eggsoverizzy.com. I have a 4 month old baby boy...and having some readers at my new blog will be motivation for me to continue studying that way, otherwise, I can't get myself to read as I am VERY sleep deprived:) Hope to see some of you there! Happy Studying everyone! Isabella
  10. Hi All - I took the PANCE this past Friday and I am now part of the hurry up and wait game. I know the NCCPA usually posts on Thursdays but I have looked every day since my exam nonetheless. The wait is killing me!!! Anyway just wondering, is there a score and a reference (i.e.: 450, passing = 350) or does it say PASSED? This is what I have now resorted to spending my time on :heheh: So Nervous! Fingers Crossed! Gotta get that "C"
  11. Just passed my PANRE :))) selling a lot of review material : Kaplan questions book (2011 version ..ISBN 978-1-4195-5052-5) 3 day conference CME resources binder with two tests and explanations : from January 2012 Stony brook PANRE/ PANCE review course binder : from 2011 Drexel university PANCE/PANRE review binder : from 2010 I have spent well over a thousand dollars on all this ... To me it was all worth it :) passed in the top ten percentile !! Make me an offer :))

    Any chance anyone can send me some packrat tests? I'm seriously in desperate need...failed twice. cherylandchris71@hotmail.com. Thank you so much!
  13. For any students past or present from MDC, who were eligible to recieve financial aid...how much (total) could one expect to recieve if they qualified for full aid? It would definately help some of us aspiring PA's to get a ballpark on how much to save in addition to hopefully securing some government funds :) like I recieved aid for my medic in the amount of about 6500 since my program lasted 11 months which more than covered the cost. Call me worrisome but, I wanna make sure I have enough money to cover myself before I move from jax fl, to miami. thanks Johnson
  14. As I begin to think about taking the PANRE for the first time, I am curious to know what people think of the available review books. What are you using and what do you like the best? Thanks.
  15. Hi everyone! I took the PANCE in June and failed miserably even though I felt I had passed...after that I had a rough third trimester of pregnancy and now am home with a baby that wakes every two hours. I do not know how to study this time and pass. If anyone has ANY advice I would really appreciate it. Everyone keeps telling me I must take the Chicago course but I do not have a sitter and I cannot afford it. I have huge loans that I need to start paying soon...I'm desperate! I appreciate any help! Julia
  16. We have a 86 yo demented female with probable urosepsis, Na 165, lactate 1, ph 7.20, bicarb 11 down from 16 yesterday. Blood gasses WNL. Bicarb drip is my first thought but at what rate and do I take any special precautions for the Na? Thanks
  17. I failed my first shot at the PANRE last week. I have 3 months before I take it again and reading this forum, it seems like the DataChem CD has helped a lot of people. I am just looking for someone who doesn't need it anymore and looking to make some money from it. Please email me if you have it available and a fair price for it. thanks ... mnagle02@yahoo.com
  18. i have heard quite a lot of magic results on PANCE from those who have studies with Datachem or AAPA books. But i have no idea where to obtain these materials/ books. A USBN or a link to the purchase or download would be highly appreciated!
  19. Hey, I was wondering if anyone used Kaplan questions to study, and if you did, what percent right were you getting before passing the PANCE exam. Kaplan recommends getting at least 70%.
  20. I have used Kaplan Qbank for taking the PANCE and it was great. I recently heard about Exam Masters and wanted to see if anyone has any opinions. Exam Masters is cheaper. But that's all I know. Thanks!
  21. Has anyone used the Kaplan Live Online PANCE for studying? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  22. So I took the PANCE on Monday 8/30. My score should be available tomorrow. I'm anxious about it and I was hoping I could get a little feedback/support. When I finished the test, I didn't feel good about it, and I didn't feel bad about it. Looking back, I feel there's no way I failed it, but I'm still freaking out. Does everyone else feel like this? I know there's nothing to worry about; I did very well in school. I feel like my program prepared us. I used ExamMaster, the new AAPA/PAEA book and Lange yellow book. Our program also had a week of board reviews (taught by us) just before graduation (8/21). I've heard everyone feels this way! Is that true?
