Taking the NCLEX Exam in a weeks time

  1. I'll be taking the NCLEX exam in a weeks time. Do you have any suggestions on what would be the final preparation for the exam? :spin: Thanks a lot...

    I think meals shouldn't be that heavy, otherwise, you'll feel sleepy during the exam(shifting of circulation needed to digest food). A medium meal or a light meal(frequent feedings) will do. Preferably one that is pure and rich in protein. I suggest a no carbohydrate meal on that day(prior to the exam). Just protein on the exam day(prior and during the test time).

    Research shows that a high carb diet on that time will make you sleepy and impair your ability to concentrate.

    God bless my fellow examinee!

    Thanks for all the inputs you guys. I hope and pray that I will pass. Took the exam last jan. 24 and still waiting for my results. When I took the exam I always stay focused. The pressure is tremendous. To think that I was the only one left inside the testing center. I got 213 questions and it took me 5 hours to finish it. Godbless to you steve. More power I know you can do it...

    Hi, I would like to know, if you practice answering questions, what should your score be or the percentage inorder for you to know that you are ready? Is it at least 75% for all or is it ok for you to score 60% at times? Thank you so much

    if you're using saunders 75% is enough..

    if you're using kaplan - 60-65%.
