    I wish you loads of luck for the end of July - I am sure you will be ok if you can keep the nerves away!

    I am studying hard too and hope to do mine in september - I am an RN in the UK and feel a little scared about the NCLEX as it is a long long time since I did exams!!!

    Anyway, Good luck!

    I'm taking it this Wednesday, and I have studied myself to death! Today, I am reviewing my labs and dosage calculations. Tomorrow, I'm going to the beach by myself to vegitate.

    Best of luck to you.

    I think we all make ourselves a little sick and a little crazy studying for these boards. It might help a bit to go for a long walk, just something for a breather. You tackle it with renewed energy if you have a bit of a break. Good luck - and just remember to not read through the questions too fast! It will pass (and so will you

    I recently passed the NCLEX & looking back, I realize that I stressed myself out too much. My advice to those who have yet to take it & are in panic mode, is to just relax. Just keep doing practice questions every day & remember to take breaks. Don't burn out. Definitely STOP the day before the exam & do something fun. You'll want to have a fresh head going in. Also, remember that most of us end up leaving the exam feeling like we failed. But, if you read the many posts, most end up passing. YOU WILL TOO.

    GOOD LUCK!

    hi warhawk
    this time LAST year i was in the same boat as you...i acutally took my boards on monday july 28 at 745am (yeah they really made that much of an impact on me)...anyway...i know what you are going through...all i can say is, take your time studying, going over questions, and most of all UNDERSTADING what you are studying.....don't forget to take your breaks....most importantly DO NOT STUDY THE NIGHT BEFORE!!! best of luck to you....
    p.s.
