    Also -- since I'm testing on a Saturday does the "Pearson Vue Trick" work on the weekends?? I think I will make myself go crazy if I can't get my results until Monday!

    Hey everyone, I just finished up my nclex this morning at 10.76 questions, walked in the house and received the good pop up. I am ecstatic. I used only the hurst review for my studies. I tried Kaplan but it relied to much on trying to trick ur way around the test. Hurst gave a focused review of content needed just to pass nclex. I took the nclex back in nov an failed. Dropped lap and ran with hurst never looking back. I didn't realize how much I didn't actually know till I started studying with hurst-did the online course.
    Anyways lisamarie answer is yes good pop up on sat which is the weekend so I know you will receive the same.

    Congrats nycedagreat! Im doing th Hurst online & just took my 1st Q Review test & scored 80 out of 124. What were your scores? Im not sure if Im doing well or not.

    Hey your scores are great. I actually only took two Q reviews my score was 72 then 84. I slowed on the test and just stayed on the getting the core content down. I do believe that the core content will put you over the top. I think your scores are fine the more you study the higher your scores will go. 75 and pass is the goal. If I stayed doing Q review my scores would rise and will yours. Good luck!!! Thank you every one for your kind words. I really appreciate it.

    Hurst $300 for online $350 for in person. But the NCSBN (Makers of NCLEX) has a 3 week option that is only $50. 5 week for $70, 8 week for $100 and 15 week for $160.

    Kaplan review is an online, on demand, or in person content review and question bank.

    Pass the NCLEX Guaranteed or Your Money Back | Kaplan Nursing
    I graduated in May of 2012. I scheduled myself for NCLEX-RN the first week in June. The only thing I used was Kaplan. I did ALL of the Q bank questions and 7 big tests. I passed with 75 questions on my test day. Kaplan even formats the screen to look just like what you'll see at NCLEX. If I got questions wrong, I would read the rationale and then go to the Kaplan book to read more on the subject.

    Well tomorrow at 0800 I take my NCLEX!!! I'm feeling ok - not as stressed out as I was expecting! I've taken today off and just relaxed - I'm planning on just reviewing my lab values before I go to bed and going to bed early. My Kaplan Qbank average is 64% with 80% of my questions completed. I figure at this point all I can do is pray and have faith that all of my hard work and studying is going to pay off!!!! I'm planning on doing the Pearson Vue trick tomorrow and am hoping for the "good pop up"! Anyways, if you guys could send positive thoughts my way it would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully tomorrow I will be reporting back with my RN!
