So here I am, 26 weeks pregnant and losing my mind studing for this #@&% exam. Oh, how I hate tests! I feel confident one minute and desperately unprepared the next. I have reviewed the really great thread about studing for the narm and it helps. Just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat?

Good luck. I took it exactly a year ago tomorrow. Seems so long ago.

Best wishes! One of the apprentices that I often take with me to births is taking it next week too. I remember the week before the exam so vividly. Wishing you calmness and clear thinking during the exam. You'll do great!

Ah!! That must be so frustrating!!! I was surprised at how quickly us in Oregon got our letters (another Oregon gal got her letter the same day as myself), since the letters came all the way from Arkansas.

I hope you get it today, or sometime soon!! The wait is maddening!
