    I would wish you luck, Paul, but I know you don't need it.  As usual, though, a prayer has already been sent.

    Thanks everyone.
    Minimum number of questions is 75 and the max is 260 or 265. I was done at 83, so I either did good, or REALLY  bad. Since it seemed fairly easy, I'm going with good.

    Probably won't know for sure until sometime tomorrow though

    My Dad told of when he took his one of his boards you used a highlighter to select your answer. It also let you know if the answer was right or wrong.

    One potential outcome was, "Congratulations! You have killed your patient."

    LOL, now then it's an adaptive computerized test. The more you get right, the harder it gets until you miss. Once you're above their set, but unknown level, and past 75, you're done.
    OR if you've done so poorly, that the remaining questions can't pull you back up to passing.

    with over 2/3 of the max # of questions remaining, I'm 85-90% confident

    No doubt in my mind that you kicked the test in the ass brother.

    Hey, my friend......

    As you know, I almost died one year and one week ago. The EMT's kept me alive long enough to make it to the ER. Had you been there, no doubt the outcome would have been the same, only I'd have had a friend along for the ride. Wish you'd been there.

    The ER Trauma team did a great job at keeping me alive until the "real" docs showed up.  They did good, too. Wish you'd been there.

    The surgeons, "electricians", and "plumbers", fixed me pretty well it seems. Aided by a plethoria of RN's. Wish you'd been there.

    In recovery, the RN's treated me like I was the only person in their lives that mattered. This, in spite of their long hours and my occasionally drug-induced personal demands....Wish you'd been there.

    If it happens again, and I hope it doesn't, it'd be nice if you were there.

    Go get 'em, Tiger.

    Mike

    I wish you the best outcome possible. One thing I have learned from taking many tests in High School and College is that if you think you did well on a test, you most likely did.
