    Everyone tells me to not take it unless i'm ready, but i'll never truly feel 100% ready because there's just so much info out there to know for Boards. But, i've been studying consistently at least 4-5 hours a day and my brain, heart, and body just wants to take the test. Does this mean i'm ready? Someone told me that if your gut is telling you to take the test, then that means you're ready. Several weeks ago, I knew I was not at all ready and I knew I had to study ALOT. But now I just feel like I need to take the exam, even though my scores are still low in Kaplan review.

    I can relate to you. My scores in Kaplan is not high! I'm so anxious on taking the exam soon. When are you planning to take the test?

    How long do you have until your exam? I would recommend you to keep doing questions at this point and read the rationales. Try to get those scores up.

    I have about a week till my exam. Been consistently getting in the 50s in Kaplan QBank. I am almost done reading the content material in the Kaplan book and then for 5 days straight i'm just gonna do questions and review the rationales on both Kaplan site and NCSBN.

    That's a good plan. Doing questions should help

    Just keep going at it...you know the content now its a matter of applying it towards the questions. Remember, when taking your NCLEX read the questions carefully & take your time! PM if you need any help!

    Thanks for the help and advise! Planning on taking my time when I take the test, scared about those SATAs. Using NCLEX 3500 for practice on SATAs, but it's difficult for me.....

    Just took the 180 kaplan strategies test from the strategy book and I scored a 61%. I don't feel too bad since its kaplan and it's a better score compared to my qbank scores!
