    Just to inform you all I PASSED the NCLEX. It wasn't easy waiting to get the results. Its always mixed feelings after taking the exams but to all those waiting to get the results just be hopeful and keep trusting God.

    congrats babykay, i passed too! just found out. hey lvngino if you're out there, have you found out yet? i wrote a really long post on the nclex thread after my test. too much to repeat, but that test was so hard. so many meds i'd never heard of, and just some really difficult questions. i don't remember more than a few being easy. i did great in the program, the ati tests, etc., but this test was a bear. it shut off at 85 and i got scared only because i really felt i'd gotten so many of them wrong. i'm so grateful it's finally over!!!

    You see...

    It really does seem like most everyone passes while thinking they failed during the tortuous wait.

    Good on you all! Now let's all go forth and use our obvious abilities for good!

    I just took the exam today. I pretty much feel as though I failed, I think it stopped at 85 questions. No dosage calculations, one of my strongest abilities, so I thought I failed based on that... Even though I received 85 questions I am still not confident I passed.... I had a good amount of med questions and of course I did not know what most of those meds were.
    I would say preparing is very difficult, because every one gets an exam that focuses on something different... Some get general questions others get highly detailed questions..
    A tip, critical thinking and prioritizing are clearly the hardest part of the examination. As far as meds are concerned, learn the classification of drugs especially how they determine the names.. No one can memorize all these drugs...Any way, best of luck to all who have taken the exam and who will take it...
