Hi Fellow PA friends! I am a second year student at Chapman University, recently pulled from my rotation d/t COVID-19. I know this has been a trying time for all of us, personally my program won't be resuming clinical rotations until mid may, so we are stuck doing online independent study/PANCE prep. My program is using U-World and I wanted to reach out and offer you all a free 90- subscription for you to try out while we are stuck at home! They have really in-depth detailed questions that in my opinion have been on par with the level of difficulty of my EOR exams. They have a large question bank and offer great explanations with the ability to make flash cards, track your progress and so much more. Here is the link to get signed up if you're interested! Best of luck to you all friends and remember, we will get through this! https://www.uworld.com/app/index.html#/discountcode/STUDENT-847531-2020
How to deal with excessive TEST ANXIETY I am a high stress / high anxiety test taker. I took and passed the PANRE in 8/2014. Here is some of the research I did to help deal with the stress. A study in the Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment compared thirty five university students with ADHD and one hundred and eighty five typical peers on measures of speed, test anxiety, reading comprehension, vocabulary, test taking skills and time management. Surprisingly there was no significant differences between students with and without ADHD outside test anxiety. There was significant differences with anxiety during, and perceptions of, test taking. It appears that students with ADHD perform similarly to peers on timed reading tests, although they perception of performance was less and worried significantly about their performance. The take home message is that if you suffer from test taking anxiety it is important not to label yourself, drop the negative thoughts. The label is a cognitive disorder and will do more harm than good. Strategies for overcoming test anxiety. 1. Be prepared i.e. Joe’s @PABoardReview.org or other accredited test prep. programs, PANCE/PANRE review books. 2. Practice test questions in duration and complexity that mimic the PANCE/PANRE 3. Meditation. The PA Program @Touro University Nevada teach their students Koru “Jon Kabat-Zinn” University of Mass Mindfulness for stress relief.
