    Summerbummer, I saw a thread with Congrats to you, so I followed it. Sorry about that.
    Oh don't worry about it. I would've really hoped that message was true, though! Hehe. No hard feelings here. =)

    Hi guys,

    I just have a question. Did anyone else got their results in the mail like, 2 business days after taking the test? Coz I got mine yesterday, and to tell you the truth, I was surprised because it was really quick. And I really felt quite confident answering most of the questions, you know. I even felt some of the questions than easier than Kaplan's. So I really do not know what happened. Like I was really not meant to get my license this time. Hmmm.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement, everyone. Appreciate them. =)

    w100jun and em1025 all the best and prayers for you tomorrow. give us the good news.

    also, out of nervousness i went to barnes and nobles.......for retail book therapy. i swear this nclex is killing me.....i never had any test anxiety before...but when i think of it now i swear i get goose bumps, chills, redness, heat....you name it, i have it. anyway....i was just freaking yesterday thinking about the test and bought a book.....can you believe it.......i have only 9 days. i feel so overwhelmed remembering the signs and symptoms.................seems like every single disease sx...is similar. the book name is "memory notebook of nursing" 3rd edition.....it has pictures, mnemonics, and imp. s/sx....if you guys are visual learners.....swear this book will be helpful. it does not have all the imp. stuff you need....but it brushes up your memory....and easy to remember. how is everone doing. i am really doubting myself....i wish i can cool myself.

    Yes I did. I took my 2nd test on 11/22, and I got my results 11/28. I thought I did better on the 2nd one and thought for sure I passed, but not. I actually did worst. On my 1st test I had all near passing. The 2nd one I had below passing in physio, reduction of risk pot., and psychosocial integrity. I was blown, but I'm not giving up. I'm a lousy test taker and have poor study habits. I crammed all through nursing school, graduated with 3.35, and found out cramming does not work for me with the nclex. I have also schedule the previous tests with out being ready. This time I'm scheduling when I'm ready and not when I'm pressured too. I'm starting Suzane's plan. I bought Saunders 4th edition and I have already started doing the comprehensive test.
    Heres to us who have yet to find the path.
    Happy Holidays

    Hello Everyone!!!I am still here and I have NOT seen my name on CALI BON. I'm pretty sure I failed because this is what happened last time too. 16 days before I got my official FAILED results.

    Congrats to everyone who passed. :-)

    Summerbummer ... hope you're ok. When I failed the 1st time ... I really had trouble studying again. This 2nd one ... I have a more positive view. Hopefully, 3rd time will be the charm. Keep your head up and pray. Our time will come too.

    Good Luck to all of us who will have to retake.

    Good Luck to everyone who will take it soon!!! We're all praying for one another.

    imhopeful, sorry to hear that. i'm so speechless when people say that they didn't pass the test. i've been there before & i know how it feels. tom i'm taking my chance again. sometimes i ask myself why do people have to go over & over this test. i know everyone's putting their hearts out for this, but still didn't make it..and then try again & another failure & so on. i believe that God has reasons for everything. I may not know what His reasons & His plan for us.. but i'm keeping my faith that after falling down, we are given another chance & we can rise up again. God knows our hearts desire & He will give it to us in His time. Godbless!

    I took my test today I don't know what to say or think all I know is that I failed the test. This my 3rd time taking the test I don't even think I will check the BON site on Monday for quick result. I pray to God to give me strength to study again.I'm depressed.

    em1025 & w100jun: i'm praying for you both. i think everyone felt unsure & that they failed after their exam. it's a normal reaction i guess. so how was the exam. please share it with us. Godbless!

    i'm also part of the quick results & i'm planning to just check my results after christmas just to make sure i won't ruin my x-mas day.
