    Be sure to rest the day before. Don't freak out like I did lol. You know what you know. Although a little anxiety is always good and can help focus you.. too much is obviously not good. When you're waiting in the waiting room, take deep breaths and think positive. Tell yourself you can do it!! There were other people my age while I was waiting to be checked in.. and it was nice to take to them. Helped ease the nerves.. and helped me realize that I wasn't the only one that was freaking out. During the test, take deep breaths every once and awhile, especially when you start to feel overwhelmed. This definitely helped calm me down, and brought my focus back to the test. Also, take the "unscheduled" breaks if you need to!! Good luck!! You can do this!!
    Thank you for the advice! That helped me ease a bit. I can do this i can do this! Ahhhhh!

    Julz, would you say that the questions of kaplan are similar/harder than the NCLeX?

    I didn't do Kaplan. I couldn't afford it. I borrowed the Saunders CD from a friend, did free questions online and did ATI that was paid for by my school. BUT, in my opinion, all those practice Q's were harder than NCLEX. I'm not saying NCLEX was easy by any means, but it was more straight forward than some Q's from the practice tests. There were some easy questions and some very hard questions. There were questions that I was sure that I was just guessing on. But since it's an adaptive test, once you answer questions right, it will throw harder ones at you. If you are averaging 60-70% on your practice Q's, you are doing well. Hope this answers your question and lessens your fears.
