    I hope you drop by the NCLEX Forum at: http://allnurses.com/forums/f197/ . Perhaps that will help.

    You have to start getting the ball rolling and take that test. You can do it!
    I will be praying for your success. Good luck to you.

    Hold your head up and keep looking forward. You worked hard and paid good money for your education. Buy some study aid books, take a class if you can. I know it is hard having a family but you can do it if you really want to.

    Hi, I graduated in May 2006...I been lurking and posting in the NCLEX boards ever since then..The majority of the NCLEX board would say study Saunders and do the questions on the CD for nursing content...And go for Kaplan NCLEX PN book/questions for NCLEX style type of thinking and questions..

    That is what I got from reading the NCLEX board for 3 months and asking questions..I take NCLEX in 1.5 weeks..

    I am sorry to hear that you didn't do well in NCLEX-PN. I would listen to Bala Shark and purchase Saunders (and ESPECIALLY Kaplans stragedy book), or I would consider Delmar's Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-PN as well. Also, consider a review course (although I know they can be expensive). I wish you luck. I would make a study schedule to stick close to, and list where your weaknesses are (did they send you an outline of where they feel you had trouble?) and focus on them first, and try and keep that for about two months, at least.
