    Congrats! I'm just done with Kaplan Phase 1. I scored 51 on my diagnostic, and 50s on question trainers 1 to 3. Any suggestions or tips to share? Should I freak out on my low scores? Also, are the rationales for the diagnostic test given? I cannot view them.

    Do not freak about those scores, as long as your getting half right or at least over 50% is good enough. the diagnostic doesn't give you the rationales, something about they wanting to keep as real as possible but i would advise focusing on the areas that you were low on. Keep reading the rationales, right and wrong and even write some of them down if you have to. I would say I learned the most by reading them and looking the notes I made...oh, and SATAs on NCLEX are wayyy easier than Kaplans, they are straight to the point as long as you know your content...good luck!!

    I took my nclex Monday at 8am was very shaken afterwards. I knew my content but apparently not enough. I tried the Pearson vue trick right after got to the cc card screen, at this point I was sure I failed. But refused to accept it until today Wednesday when I got my results "failed" I have 45 days to retake it now and I will definitely study harder this time around 😢
