Hello. I just took my NCLEX PN exam on Monday at 1 pm here in California. It is my second time and hopefully my last. My first try, was back in 2014 and i stopped at 85 questions and got the letter in the mail stating I failed..It was a bummer..This time I also stopped at 85..A couple SATA, 2 math ( one i know i got wrong..haha ), 2 meds, and a few others..Anyways, what was your study materials? Can you email it to me please? I am anxiously waiting for my results..and because of that, I am studying again.. California takes quite some time in mailing exam results back.. Thanks.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I know a few people said that it took them to the credit card page and they end up passing. I know when I take my test next month I will not do the Pearson trick. I'm going to pray and keep faith until I get the official test results. So just pray and keep faith. I will pray for you, blessings!

So I took my NCLEX-RN exam today for the 3rd time and let me tell you it was really tough!!! I studied using learningext.com and a 3 day course from nclex-pass.com. I walked into the testing center nervous but confident that I was gonna pass... The other 2 times I wasn't as motivated to pass as I am now due to my circumstances... I hid my test date from everyone except a select few and I'm glad I did... I panicked when it past 75 but still pushed myself to answer the questions.... Finally, it stopped at 199 and I was exhausted when I left the testing center.... I was debating on doing the person vue trick or not but eventually did... I even had my boyfriend click the NEXT button because I was too chicken to do it..... And the wonderful POPUP CAME!!!! I cried and cried because the other 2 times it went straight to credit card so I truly BELIEVE in this trick!!!!! I prayed to God along with St. Joseph of Cupertino and they were really watching over me!!! God is good!!!! I can't believe I can finally say to my family and friends that I AM AN RN NOW!!!!!
To those who didn't pass the first time, don't give up hope!!! Keep on pursuing your dreams to become a nurse!!!! I thought that I was dumb because everyone in my class can pass except for me but i knew I can overcome this test and I DID!!! GOOD LUCK to all future test takers!!!!
After 2 days of anxious, compulsive (and a touch psychotic) web-site refreshing, I finally see my name on the Nursing License verification site!! So, in addition to the good news, I get to save $ on purchasing quick results!
To Jason....I used the Hurst Review, and this was the best money I have ever spent in my life. I also purchased a few NCLEX books...and had started going through one of them when I realized I needed more than a book to make sense of things again......you see, its been 15 years since I graduated from nursing school. (Can I procrastinate or what!?!)
I was shopping around for review classes and had read good things on this site about the Hurst Review and the focus on core content...which was exactly what I needed. I took it online and it took me about 3 months to get through it. That sounds pretty lengthy, but I reviewed and reviewed and reviewed a topic until I mastered it, before I moved on to the next topic.
To eine: The test was crazy, there's not ONE thing you can focus on cuz a million different things are thrown into each question, and one question is really like 4 questions. To pass, you must have an overall good understanding of how body systems work together and WHY an important disease does x and y and impacts z.
Thank you to all the students who post here, this board has been soooo encouraging!

any topics u can share from your test? will help i guess...big thanks to you!
You might not mean any harm but telling people that you don't know their studying plans at all a stranger so to say is really like coming off rude and degrading.Post your nclex tips and leave it at that.Allnurses.com is about nurses encouraging others that are there already or need help getting there.Say what you did to help you when you were in there shoes instead of the opposite.Example: nlcex taker A is not sure of studying management;nclex passer B would say i study two hours everyday for two months from so and so time till so and so time.You get it now.Congrats on passing your nclex.
and buy a book with CD, Sometimes they have wrong numbers in answers for SATA ( for example 1,4,and 5), but rationals are correct with explanations.I think this book is very helpful to understand clinical thinking.
