NCLEX Questions in NS

  1. 0
    While in nursing school, how many NCLEX questions do you do a day? I am trying to organize and prioritize my studying skills. Do you think 10 to 20 would be good to start with? I have an app on my phone that I use when I am out and waiting on the kids to get done with their activities and I also just bought the Saunders NCLEX Review Book.

    While in NS I did about 25-40q's here and there using Kaplan app (free) and Saunders books. I concentrated more of my time on studies. As graduation was nearing I bumped up the # of NCLEX questions to about 50-75. After graduation full force NCLEX study (150-200q's/day). Passed my NCLEX in first try with 85 questions

    None. Not that I think it's a bad idea, I just don't think it's critical. The NCLEX is way over-dramatized on this forum. The overall pass rate nationwide is 90%. It's a challenging exam, but it's not as big a deal as people make it out to be (75 questions, no review course, NCLEX 3000 CD, read less than half of the Saunders review book).

    I didn't do any self study until my senior year, and they had a requirement to do at least 3,000 and show proof of it to be "cleared" to pass our senior year. Most of our tests were worded NCLEX-style.

    While I do think that people's anxiety about the NCLEX can be very, um, "extra" to some, please bear in mind people have test anxiety, dyslexia, may have been developmentally delayed earlier in life or ESL...just because they may not "look like" they have a "problem" does not negate that a test may show a weakness...vulnerability shakes a lot of people to or from their core, ok???

    I do NCLEX questions for the topic I am studying. When I finish studying a topic for the first time I do questions it helps with the my tests and I know how well I am doing for that area. When I go over it for the test the review I a few more questions with my study group. I don't do a certain number each day it depends on how much I am studying and how often I study. I always do the questions in the book and a few more in Lippincott or Saunders.

    Agreed with Dembitz! People will make anything and everything sound impossible when it really isn't bad.

    I do questions that pertain to the test I'm about to take as a way to study. I guess I'm also studying for the NCLEX along the way, but I wouldn't actually dedicate time solely for the that purpose until after graduation.
