    Hi Istanbul

    I wish you good luck too. I studied from every book I found and I took kaplan courses for preparation for NCLEX-RN it helped me a lot so I suggest you search for Kaplan. I would like to inform you that I guess every 3 year I'm not sure exactly they are making the exam more difficult I don't remember details you can find here in forums. This year on April I guess they will change the changes.
    First I tried to study from books and I went to take the test and I failed at 170 questions.
    After I took kaplan I passed with 75 questions.

    Which school you had graduated and if you have work experience?

    I used Saunders and Kaplan.Saunders books are very good for reviewing.Kaplan's questions are excellent for preparing for the test.I recommend on those two.

    Hi Ulku

    I'm from Turkey too and I passed the nclex-rn last year. I couldn't pass first time but I did pass second time. You need to study regularly and to have a study program daily at least 4-5 hours a day. Otherwise it can be very difficult to pass it. When I tried first time I used to study from books like mosby. lipincott, saunders. But I failed. Then I applied for Kaplan comprehensive course. After that I passed. They are very strategic and they teach you how to manage to find the right answer. If you need more information you can ask me. I wish you best of luck.

    Hi Beyza

    I can understand you, it is really hard to be full time mom. I wish you can pass this test like me. You are right about pharmacology I had problem too. Unfortunately there are a lot of questions with pharmacology and are different than our country. I don't want to discourage you but nothing is impossible.
    Actually I don't know the difference between those two when I went for this course I contacted them through email that and I explained to them that I am foreign graduated and I want to take their preparation program for NCLEX-RN and then they submitted me the course dates with schedule of total program. So I chose one course that was closed to my house which was in one of the community college in my area. This is my whole experience with Kaplan. I wish it would help you. Best of Luck and kolay gelsin.
