    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!!

    hi schizo, im filipino too. just wana ask if u graduated in the phils? if so, were u not affected by the concurrency issue that the filipino nurses were facing. i took nclex 2x and failed and now scared to reapply, thinking the ca bon would just deny me of taking it ;(
