Quote from UHRN2004
Graduating in December, anyone have tips for NCLEX!! I also wanted to know if anyone has taken or is taking the Kaplan course. Is it worth it?
Thanks to all,
I didn't take the Kaplan course, but a friend loaned me her CD from it. I wasn't all that impressed.
I think the best deal of the century is Mosby's online NCLEX review. It cost about $43 including tax (which is probably different where you are), and is good for 30 days, unlimited uses.
It gives you either 75 or 150 questions (your choice), a prediction of your probability of passing in terms of percent, a breakdown of the areas addressed by the questions and whether your need minimal, moderate or a lot of review, and a "booklet" of about 60 pages (if you print it out, which you don't have to) in a pdf file, of each question you did, what the right answer was, the rationales for all four choices, and what answer you picked.
I absolutely loved it. I had planned to do a practice test every other day. Only managed two a week. (Lazy)
Just took my NCLEX and (I know I'm going to tick some people off with this) it was almost boring. Not quite, but almost. I do think that says something about the amount and quality of my preparation.
I passed. I'm an RN. (wow. just ... wow.)
Anyway, Mosby. Here's the link: http://www3.us.elsevierhealth.com/CAT/
