都已經美國博班畢業了真的沒想過還要再碰托福,拜加州Board of Reegistered Nurse (BRN)所賜,只要本科大學學歷(Bachelor Degree)不是在美國或英語系國家取得,不管是從0申請執照或從外州轉照都需要考托福,且口說分數要達到26,另外聽說寫要達到22分。雖然很氣(都已經拿DNP學位了,也不是要來當RN),但聽說物理治療師不只要考托福還要補實習時數,好像更慘...

一直以來,很多不管是在準備出國或是在準備執照考試的網友都會問我到底"托福該怎麼準備?" "已經練習了很久還是衝高不了分數" "口說好難,連22都突破不了" 與其一個一個回覆大家,決定還是把這篇分享文寫出來,希望能給徬徨的你們一點參考。

以下分享的方法適合我並不一定適合你,但至少值得一試! 如果還是遲遲沒有進步,文章最後我會說我的建議。同時,也不希望看這篇文章的人照我的方法後因為沒有進步所以自我懷疑亦或信心受挫,所以先說一下我考試前的背景 (在起跑點大家本來就是不一樣的,如果英語一直以來就不是你的強項、英語基礎不夠,那就要從基礎開始打起,沒有辦法一蹴而就):

  - 五年前考過兩次托福,最後申請學校托福成績大約是九十幾,口說是22~24間有點忘了(成績單已找不到,當時的ETS帳號已經被移除)

日本跟美國好像因為疫情原因貨運延遲超久

一直想等秋冬買的衣服全部到貨後一起分享

結果從九月初一等就等到了十一月...

過去這個月太忙一直沒辦法好好拍個穿搭和寫文

秋天竟然就在不知不覺間到了

九月底才收到這單Uniqlo IDLF秋冬系列

那時候還有三十幾度,沒想到一踏入十月立馬就下滑到不到20度的天氣了

很榮幸地在今年六月終於正式加入貓奴行列

我們家這隻取名叫Nagi (對就是拉麵的Nagi),是從南加州救援團體領養的

啊~養貓雖然有很多麻煩事,但真的是非常療癒

當然在選購貓貓用品的時候,也是件舒壓的事!

If you just finished your Nurse Practitioner (NP) program, Congratulations!! As a DNP/NP new grad, the next big step is to pass the board certification exam. Some of you might have started searching for the review courses to help you succeed in the board exam. As a newly certified AGACNP, I would like to share my research on the two most popular review courses - Fitzgerald and Barkley, and how I chose between them.

 

Why using a review course?

I believe most NP new grads want to find the most efficient method to pass the exam in order to start the next exciting chapter as soon as possible. And I think the best way is through a well-organized, single, comprehensive review course. Couple reasons to support this choice. First, instead of going back to the materials provided by your school (I believe they are scattered in different semesters' files), the experts already organized the content you have to review so you won't miss anything. Second, they ensure everything is updated and include the latest guidelines you need to know. When I looked back at the handouts I got from my NP program, some information is already out of date. Third, the review course also teachs you how to comprehend the text and the test-taking techniques, which are vital to study effienctly and master the extended spectrum across the young to old adult for AGACNP board.
