    Hello everyone! I was just wondering if studying from saunders (book and cd) is a good plan to follow. I know that the test plan has changed and was curious if there was a better book to be studying from. I dont have the money for kaplan, but i did read the book and i feel like it has helped. Any advice from people who have recently taken the exam would be great!

    I've mostly used Saunders when I took NCLEX LPN and NCLEX RN. Passed both tests in one attempt. I think Saunders prepare you very well for the test.

    oscar and kay thanks. I was def. considering that.

    I think I am sticking with Exam cram right now Q & A.

    If there is an area I don't feel comfortable from a question I missed I have open my Saunders review book to read just that area. I've only had to do that twice. I just started really studying yesterday. I did 100 questions yesterday. Broken apart though, I did 50 in the Am then 50 in the Pm.

    : )

    You'll ROCK it next time...promise.

    i think you should focus on just 1 book, having too many resources might get you even more anxious and overwhelmed. i recommend saunders 4th edition nclex review book..good luck next time around
    I agree. Focus on 1 book. It's too overwhelming to try and use too many books. I used Saunders for NCLEX LPN and NCLEX RN. Works for me and many other people.

    Just wondering whether the math questions on the NCLEX are straight forward, or are they disguised in a bunch of words and extra numbers meant to throw you off. I am taking the NCLEX this Friday and yes I have been practicing math, but it isn't my strong point! Never has been. & I don't want to be that person who fails the NCLEX based on that. Otherwise, I graduated in May of this year and I have been taking the Kaplan class for the last three weeks. I do about a hundred questions a day and my trainer scores are in the mid to upper sixties. I did ATI while in school. & I totally take this seriously. I have a job waiting that is based on whether I pass this test. & I'm just worried. Does anyone else have this issue? Your are welcome! Thanks!
    I didn't get any drug calc from nclex rn...took it this morning. When I took nclex-pn, there was a lot of drug calculations. But not today. There's a whole bunch of prioritization questions, delegations, and SATA. I had a couple of med questions - not necessarily math problem. Good luck to you.... You will be fine.

    There's a lot of SATA when I took nclex today. I was trying to count how many, but lost count. I just answered this as best as I could.

    Yay! I have a question for you. I saw that you used Davis as one of your study guides for the boards. Was this the 2010 Davis NCLEX RN book? If so how well do you think it prepared you? I finished the book (all 2000 q's), and now am finishing up my Kaplan Qbanks. Thanks!

    I used Davis...a little bit. Then 2 or 3 weeks before my test date, I used Saunders alone. That's what I used even when I prepared for NCLEX-PN in 2006. And I think Saunders prefer you well for NCLEX.
    I have too many nclex book and it's so hard to decide what to use. I read from one of the posts here to just settle and focus in one book, whichever one you prefer. I wanted to the Kaplan but, didn't have the money for it. From what I've heard from ppl here, Kaplan is good. So, you will be fine.

    Good luck....I'll have to wait till Friday for the quick result. But the good pop up made me feel good. Best of luck to you.... I hope we both pass and everybody who's taking it.

    I'm losing my mind!! My school/state took forever to process paperwork so I could not get motivated to study! I've been done since March and have studied on/off - nothing impressive - since then. FINALLY, got my ATT and picked a date. Am I on a suicide mission??

    Do I even bother to 'review' material or just start knocking out questions? I have Saunders Comprehensive, Davis Q & A, and Priortization & Delegation. I get about 50-60% on the practice tests. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. No specific area is weak, just the same across the board.

    I took LPN boards in 2003 without studying......not feeling the same about this exam!!

    I was an LPN-RN student, too. Took NCLEX RN this morning... I was nervous the last 2 weeks. I studied from Saunders NCLEX Q&A, did all the questions in the book then used the CD. I have too many NCLEX RN book, but I didn't want to confuse myself so I just focused on 1 book. You will be fine, I know it's easier said than done.
    I got the good pop up from PVT this morning after the test, so hopefully I really passed.
    Do as many practice questions as you can, that's what I did. I did 100-200 questions everyday and made my notes. Those practice questions really help a lot.

    Just wanted to know since I'm taking my Nclex-RN this Sunday How long after the exam should I try the trick? Thanks!
    I took nclex today. I went home and did the PVT...got the good pop up. So, you should be able to do it as soon as you get home. Good luck.
