I'm looking extensively at smoking, and I'm looking at the Elderly too. There is little point in using PPPP as it was the NAB and also with so much in the papers about the Elderly and Smoking this year, they've got to put it up sometime.

plus just cause something was not in the nab does not mean that it wont be in the exam. I dont think you can really learn BK i think its just stuff that you know, its not something i ever had to learn.

I'm not doing healthcare, but another pointer for you. There is also more than 1 NAB for your teachers to choose from, so just because it was in 1 NAB dosn't mean the SQA will not put it in the papers.

i'm looking at almost everything, i only mention a minimun of 5 pieces of K.U and thats only like 2 lines worth each time. Try makin up two or three line bits of K.U to fill an A4 sheet of paper both front and back then take out the ones you think would be the hardest and learn the rest!!!
Also as a last piece of advice in every year you can always mention the funding principles of the N.H.S which is basically just "cradle to the Grave" and "free at the piont of use"

the 75+ age group use 7 times more resources than those under 75.
Summer romances end for all kinds of reasons, but when all is said and done, they have one thing in common -- they are shooting stars, a spectacular moment of light in the heavens, a fleeting glimpse of eternity... and in a flash, they're gone.
