    Forgot to mention this: while reviewing all rationales to all your q-bank questions w/ Kaplan, have all resources in front of you such as your pharm book, med surg, maternity and peds text books. And just do your research according to the answers you truly don't understand, whether they are RIGHT (because sometimes our right answers are right guesses) or WRONG.

    Hi court304! I took and passed the NCLEX after the first try and after just 75 questions just last week! I highly recommend the kaplan review book (of course most questions in the CD) and if you have time, use the Saunders book also. I used just those two, but mostly the Q-bank questions from Kaplan. Do EXACTLY what Kaplan says to do, for example, for a 3-week plan they will say to do 50 questions/day until the day of your exam. Here's your job though, after EVERY practice exam, please please please review EVERY question, whether right or wrong. Doing this process w/ every question IS your studying session! Don't try to study all content, system by system. What I did w/ the Saunders book was use that to touch up on my weaknesses. For instance, my weakness was med surg aka physiology adaptation. So I did all 500 of those questions, which is mainly factual, short answer style questions. Kaplan has legit NCLEX questions. Saunders does not, however, is really good soley for content review. I say legit because almost all nlcex reviews will say "NCLEX style questions" however, I found that only Kaplan gave challenging questions THAT WILL PREPARE YOU. Hope this helps!

    please disregard my last post, pearson has my results available, just waiting for my husband to come home and I'll open it (crossing fingers!!!!!!) I will follow up in a few!

    Does anyone know how accurate the 48hrs results are? I mean in terms of pearson having the results available to students in 48 hrs, or do they sometimes take longer? I took exam on Wednesday morning at 8am and finished at 9:45am. I also don't see anything on my state's website and I am starting to freak out all over again!

    Thank you! LOL...but I'm not going to celebrate until I actually see the word PASS on Friday! But @ least my anxiety went down a lot!

    Hi! Sorry to bother you again! but I did the trick the the GOOD message popped up not allowing me to register because I have already registered. I want to freak out and cry tears of happiness but I'm still doubting it! omg, I'll post an update if the trick worked.

    Argh, I gave in to trying the trick but didn't get anything..it just said results unavailable at the time. I'll just suffer! lol

    I wanted to try it but hesitant to get a false reassurance, only to find out I failed on Friday! Have you met anyone that the trick hasn't been on point with?

    Hi everyone! I took my NCLEX this morning and of course I am VERY anxious! I don't know what to think, but I am setting myself up for the absolute worst, just in case I do indeed fail. All I kept praying and hoping for was for the computer to shut off after 75 and it did! I was happy only because it was over, but I am aware that the amount of questions will not determine if you passed or failed it. So of course I come home and start torturing myself and look up answers to my questions. Whats making me freak out is that my questions weren't AS HARD as I thought they should be!!! Isn't it true that the easier the questions are, the more likely you failed? Sighhhh, I know all I can do is wait another 2days. I'm venting out my anxiety!!! I'm hoping that they didnt seem that hard was because I was prepared..they did seem easier compared to the Kaplan review questions!

    Thanks so much Dream_Nurse2b. Well put in simple terms. I appreciate any bit of assistance! I'll look more into the rates of IV infusion.

    Hello! I am new to this website and I already love it. I graduated in June and will be taking my NCLEX-RN exam very soon. I have been reviewing every day and must admit that my understanding for IV solutions are poor. I understand the tonocity of the solutions, but would like some examples of when a patient would need hypo-,iso-, and hypertonic solutions. Also, can anyone help me w/ IV rates in regards to what is considered a fast infusion? For example, one of my Kaplan review question rationale explains that an infusion of NS at 125mL/hr is too fast for someone with heart failure. Can someone please tell me what infusion rates are too slow, too fast, etc. Thank you in advance!
