    I love these. Thank you!!! I took my nursing boards 3 times and the first two times, I was so anxious I couldn’t tell you what any of the questions were about. I found these 3 weeks before my 3rd attempt. Read it a few times a week and read it about a million times the day of my test along with the staying calm during the test section. As soon as I got my scratcg paper, I wrote “No test formed against me shall prosper.” Each time my heart started to face I stopped, closed my eyes and pictured these while shaking my hands and breathing it off.
