    ayun, i am from a not-so famous review center…
    I AM ENCOURAGING PO NA SA MGA 1ST TIME NLE TAKER AND RETAKERS na to inquire in this review center:
    i am giving an option pra sa mga nguguluhan, especially na baka magpalit ng set of Board of Nursing this year.. Though you have heard na may mga nagsasabi na “kilala nila yung mga papalit na BON”, TRG is not afraid kahit magpalit pa ng libo-libong BON kasi alam nila na “TAMA ANG PAGTUTURO NILA SA REVIEWEE AT PUSO ANG GAMIT NILA HINDI PERA”
    this is maybe the first time you heard the review center pero eto ang general info and key points about TRG:
    1. PRINCIPLE ng TRG: “pag-aralan muna ang COMMON BOARD TOPICS bago ang mga UNCOMMON BOARD TOPICS”.
    2. Board and Pen lang ang gamit and mga NATIONAL REVIEWERS po ang nagtuturo
    3. Six (6) review phases po siya
    4. Two (2) branches lang po ang hinahandle ng TRG kaya alagang alaga ang mga reviewee
    5. Med-Surg review in tagalog explanation, mga palantadaan na well absorbed..
    6. With prioritization ang mga NLE subjects wherein the reviewers will give emphasis kung ano ang dapat tandaan, hindi sila basta basta salpak nang salpak sa utak ng estudyante (in other review centers, super holistic ng review at ang msama ay madalas wlang lumalabas)
    7. LONG TERM memory for reviewees dahil sa magandang priorities ng subjects
    8. During review phase, 90% LECTURE and 10% TAWA…What do i mean? ibig sabihin nito is that HINDI GUMAGAMIT NG PAMATAY-ORAS ang REVIEWER (tulad ng pagpapatawa ng sobra at PAGSAYAW-SAYAW) para lng ma-consume ung time..PRINSIPYO NG TRG: may nag-aaral ba ng tawa nang tawa?.. after board exams, 100% ang tawa mo kasi confident ka sa mga sagot mo sa NLE dahil sa review
    9. na-hiHIT ang actual board questions, especially MS…kung masaya na po ang ibang RC na maka-apat na TANONG na lumabas from their review, sa TRG hanggang tenga ngiti mo kasi maraming common board topics ang tinatamaan.

    for more details, please feel free to visit this site for any inquiries:

    —to guide you na makahanap ng tamang review center, WAG MONG ITANONG KUNG “MAGANDA BA DYAN SA REVIEW CENTER”
    sa TRG kasi, ang sasabihin lang namin is “MARAMING LUMABAS”
    [salamat mga tropa]

    hi readers! especially aspiring RNs!:) I just want to share what I personally witnessed today, at the Ray Gapuz Review Center in Ever-Gotesco branch. I seriously do not recommend this review center to anyone. Ugh, not anymore, after what happened today! We were on the middle of the lecture with Mr. Noel Heherson Vea Laciste, when out of the blue, he suddenly blurted out: “class wag kayo titingin sa labas pero pansinin nyo yung lalake na naka orange shirt.” There was a loud hooting after he said that since the guy in orange was as gym-fit as he could possibly be. A not uncommon sight for us reviewees because the guy would wait outside for our co-reviewee. The class thought Mr. Laciste, the reviewer, just admire the bod of the guy in orange… BUT… afters the hooting subsided, Mr. Laciste warned the whole class not to leave our valuables inside the classroom whenever we go out on breaks because he “feels something awful” and also reminded a RAGC staff to never let the doors open, and that there should always be a staff on the look out whenever it is breaktime. I could tell the girl, whom we have always seen with the guy in orange were all flushed and was already embarrassed by the nonchalant character maligning of Heherson Laciste to her husband (as we would learn later), mistaking her husband as a ghetto character of some sort. Before Laciste declared lunchbreak, he again reminded us not to leave our valuables unattended cuz he has a negative gut-feeling. I don’t know what transpired in 5 minutes or so because the next thing I know, the guy in orange barged inside the classroom, and confronted Mr. Laciste, all fuming mad, talking in a very strong american accent. Turns out, the guy in orange is a fil-am living in California, having his 6-weeks vacation in Manila, and accompanying his wife to her review for the boards. And overhearing what the wife of the fil-am said to her seatmate (they are just a row infront of me), she’s just taking a comprehensive review in preparation for her HAAD exam, she didn’t take the HAAD RN review but chose the NLE review because of the longer prep time of the latter. The wife hoping she can pass the HAAD so she can start processing her work visa to USA from the UAE instead of the Philippines since she want to work immediately upon landing on US soil than relying on family-based petition which could take up years before the immigrant is allowed to work. Wow! I learned a lot today. Not technical-wise but character-wise.

    Just my 2-cents worth, never ever malign somebody you have not really gotten in touch with, spoken to, nor even brush shoulders with. Lest, character defamation coming from a Registered Nurse which should pose as a role model, to the aspiring nurses and fellows alike. And I think, by Mr. Laciste’s behavior, we, filipinos tend to judge our own race, in the end, we can’t blame other races bringing down people of our own color, too.
