    correct me if i'm wrong but i read somewhere that our nclex passing rate is like what...48%??? we can do better, of course, but as it is, that's already "fair game". english isn't our first language and we do a lot of improvisation in nursing school unlike in the u.s. where students get to work with actual scenario (and technology) where these nclex questions are formulated.

    :icon_razz:my nclexrn story....right after graduating from nursing school, i did a self-review for six months. i was working full time as a nurse assistant in a med.surg unit, and i didn't the have time to go to a review center here in the u.s. ( i find them very expensive too).so i decided to gather input from people who already passed the nclex-rn, some said they went to a review centers, but most people said they did a self- review as well. my review style was: i try to study an hour or two everyday, i study only when i am well rested. i study maybe at least a chapter every week, and i did a lot of practice test, the more practice i did, the better i became comfortable with the hard questions, also i learned a lot of new stuff we didn't cover in school. if i felt that i didn't do well on my practice test, i read my textbooks chapter again,( like med-surg textbook, not the nclex-rn review itself), it enables me to figure out the correct answers to my practice test. when i did my review, i made it fun by not studying at home. i hang out in the bookstore, coffee shops, in the park, the beach. and oh, i didn't memorize anything, but i familiarized many stuff, and try to connect things. i am sure many people has their own review strategies, but you can always try a lot of style that will suit you. the most important issue is that you will learn from your review, and try not to think that the reason you are reviewing for the exam because you want to only topass the exam, but to learn something from it. even the most experienced registered nurses still review/study the current textbooks because they want to be informed with the latest trends in nursing. even after i passed the exam, and working as an rn, i still go back to the textbooks when i have time just to review stuff that i kinda --sorta forget.pardon me for blabbing here too much, but i hope it will help those who plan to review for nclex-rn:holly1: :holly2:

    merry christmas to all i did self-review too concentrating on pathophysiology so that no matter how much they mix up all the signs and symptoms of the various diseases,:hatparty: i would be able to prioritize. now i just submitted my docs to a direct hiring agency and waiting for feedbacks from them. just read, read and read. you will be amazed at what you can recall come exam day...
