    Well took boards today. Stopped at 75. I don't know how I did, but to fail at 75 don't you have to get MOST of the questions wrong??

    I suggest NOT studying content, and just DO QUESTIONS. These NCLEX questions make you question what you know, so if you did a similar question, that will provide reassurance. Of course, they asked about things that I had practice questions on, but they asked a different aspect of information...

    I would definetly recommend doing a ton a practice questions. I did approx ~1500 questions. I also took a review course. I would not recommend taking a review course. If it will give you confidence and you have extra money to fork out then go ahead. My review course instructor told me us tons of stuff that we should not worry about. Everything she told me was on my NCLEX.
    I had one med calculation question. Lots of prioritization of who to assess first when taking a new assignment, who to delegate to, lots of questions r/t universal precautions and what precautions needed with certain diseases. I also had alot of communication questions. \
    Good luck to everyond. Christel
