I don't think they should be a requirement because the information is available without taking the course. I think it is a scare tactic by the presenters in order to make a buck. You already know the material. The real test is in interpreting the questions and chosing the best answer. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE taking NCLEX tests. Good luck.

No, I don't think it should be a requirement. Many students come out and pass without any assistance. Focus on your weak areas. I did find Kaplan nursing NCLEX very helpful because it taught you how to answer certain multiple choice questions. I don't see why anyone should spend 500-1000$ to pass NCLEX!
