Ok, maybe this is a really dumb question but here goes. How many of you have found the Class exams to be much harder than the NCLEX practice exams. (The CD's that come with your NCLEX books)
Last week I studied my notes, objectives and re-read all the material for a Renal test. Then on Sunday night, I went through the NCLEX CD and did really well, a 96%. I took the Renal test on Monday and one look at the first question and I was dumbfounded! Those questions on the exam were ten times harder than the NCLEX practice ones. Needless to say, I did pass the exam but I'm wondering who else has encountered this problem.
A lot of other students are saying that the nursing program is setting us up to fail and I'm beginning to wonder if maybe it is true.
