    Today was my first day of Hurst. Has anyone taken this before? I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing except for attending the class for 3 days.
    Have you watched day 4 & 5 yet? I haven't, was wondering what you thought of it if you did.

    Hi everyone So as some of you know, I only had about 2.5 weeks to prep for this thing, so I focused mainly on the Question Trainers and reviewing my Saunders book. Thus far I have done okay (to my knowledge) on the Question Trainers, however as I'm now trying to do more of the Q Bank (since I only a few days left! eek!!) and I'm getting very worried because I only have a 66% overall in the Q Bank with about 21% (I think after tonight 300 total) questions completed. Is this not a good sign..I don't know what to do with my limited time and I feel like I'm running around like a panicked chicken. What have been your Q Bank scores...basically I swing between 64% at my lowest and 70% at my highest...I'm so frustrated to see that below 65% mark (twice now).

    I'm in, I graduated in June 2012 and I need to pass this exam. I'm just waiting on the att but I know I need to find a way to build on content and getting used to picking the right answer. I graduated from a university in Puerto Rico so the testing style was a little different. Anything that I can learn here will be very appreciated, for I know that all we want is to be good nurses, and it starts by passing this exam. I'm glad to be aboard.

    Congrats! I just wanted to give you guys updates regarding my review. I have been using La Charity's PDA (I have 5 more chapters left), Mary ann Hogan's for content (questions are thought provoking references NCSBN review and questions). I have work until 6pm during weekdays so I study from 7 to 1am.

    I am starting to panic as my test date is getting closer (Feb. 7). I feel like I am far from being prepared, I am using Kaplan and Saunders to study. However, I have not been studying as much as others on this discussion...feel like I have been slacking.Having trouble staying motivated.

    At this point I feel exactly they same I keep my books and study guides open all day and skim through the books of things I'm unfamiliar with but still feel as if I'm not retaining enough I have a short attention span which gets the best of me everytime :/

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I graduated in June 2010 and failed the nclex-pn 3 times. Each time I failed, I would take time off before I get my study mode back. I am now scheduled for my 4th try on Feb 6, 2013 and I've been doing 100 questions a day using Exam Cram. When I am done with all their questions, I will move on the LaCharity.
