    thanks to all of you who replied to my post and im happy to let you know that I PASSED!!! someone here wrote that you will be surprised how much info you knew all along while taking the exam, its really true, i felt exactly the same and i laughed at myself ive always thought that nclex is such a dreadful exam but when i was taking it, i find it very doable, of course for the very main reason that i have prepared well enough for it. Happy holidays everyone and may you all have a blessed New Year!!!
    Congratulations!!!
