Content Review for NCLEX-RN? Please Help

  1. Hi I just graduated this May with my BSN in nursing and took the NCLEX a few days. I got 265 questions on my exam and unfortunately failed. I took the Kaplan review coarse and finished the entire Q-Bank and question trainers ranging from low 50s-low 60s as my results. I feel like Kaplan was heavily based on test taking strategies instead of content itself. I came back and signed up for U-world just to have something different but I realize that even with these questions, I need more content review because I feel thats especially important in getting SATA right (which is one of my weak points). Can someone please recommend any good content review sources, books, websites, or other NCLEX preps that may help me.

    I honestly did all the questions from UWorld and then reviewed the ones I got wrong. Reviewing similar content with different questions helped me learn the content I got wrong.
    I probably did about 100 questions a day for a month and a half, to put some perspective on how long I was studying. I also studied with my nursing classmates who also used UWorld. They would ask me questions to help review!
    When I took the NCLEX this past July I finished in 75 questions and passed! I had about 24 SATA and literally thought I failed. Other classmates of mine had like 30 or 40. Just because you don't get as many doesn't mean you failed.

    how many questions did uworld provide and did you find them similar in difficulty to the nclex?
