    Graduated May 30th, NCLEX scheduled for July 12th. I am working full time as a GN and studying by doing a Kaplan review and 25-150 questions per day. During the final week or so I expect to do 265-question exams.

    The day before the exam and of the the exam I will let it go and focus on being in a healthy and rested condition.

    Hey Darrell,

    Sounds like a great plan but I think you will be fine. As you will soon see there really isn't any way to study for this test and I don't know how to explain it other than to say you either know it or you don't. It isn't that it is a very hard test because it is not, it is the answers they are not what you are looking for at all. Don't worry so much about it though because according to your work history you won't have any problem at all with this test. I had so many SATAs that I just knew that I failed but apparently I had a very lucky day, and so will you. Good Luck to you and don't study to hard. I didn't study at all by the way, all I did was at least 3-4 times a week I did about 75-100 questions. That is plenty.

    Thanks for the boost, Travel Soon. I have all the anxiety I expect is common to the situation, but I also know the process will continue forward despite my feelings, so I continue to do questions and review the book. If nothing else, I find that the refresher on topics two and three semesters old leaves me feeling more confident in the new job....

    I have kind of been doing the same thing. I take mine next Monday the 7th, and I have 79% of Kaplan completed, plan to do my Question Trainer 7 on Saturday and I will be done with studying after that. I got a hotel room down by my testing site and I plan to relax in the waterpark they have there! Good luck! I also agree with the post about positive thinking--I think it influences you greatly and I KNOW I am going to GO IN THERE AND PASS THIS BIOTCH!!! Lol! I have also been working as a GN; I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!
