take my boards Wed 8 am...notice it is 330 am tues morn..i hope i sleep tomorrow nite.
I don't feel prepared ..the more simulation NCLEX exams I do the more unprepared I feel.
I am getting 75% to 85% on the Kaplan test (thats without studing for three months not to bad) and Kaplan says if you make 64% on theirs you will pass the boards....Any validity to that?
May insecurities are rising .........ARGH
What study guides did you guys use and which did you feel helped you the most?
One more thing...is it true that we can find out in two days the results now?
yes i am confused

My employer paid for me to go through a Kaplan review course. Because I have a family, I did not want to commit every Sat for 6 weeks to the class. I opted for the online course. I only listened to the lecture on test taking strategies and spent the rest of my study time taking and reviewing the questions on the question trainer software. I was getting 65-72% on them. I only studied for a week.
That said, I thought the NCLEX was easy. I had 75 questions and was thinking the whole time "When are the questions going to get harder?" I swear that it is because the Kaplan questions are SO MUCH more difficult than the NCLEX questions, on average.
If you are getting 75-85% on Kaplan, you will do great. Just remember the strategies that you learned, Maslow and ABCs. Good Luck and get some sleep!!
