    Each exam is different and it will pick up on your weak areas.
    If yours is meds, you can be sure that your exam will focus on that.

    I received 3 questions regarding medications. The medications were common antihypertensives and benzodiazepines. I wish I could divulge more specifics, but prior to taking NCLEX I signed a statement agreeing that I wouldn't reveal specific questions.

    Good luck!

    I posted this in response to another post but it definately is for you too so I copy and pasted it for you... Med's were my weak spot too....

    Don't memorize each drug, just the categories of drugs and how they work (i.e. ACE inhibitors end with 'pril', Beta blockers end with 'olol', etc...) then you will have a chance of knowing what kind of drug you are dealing with even if you have never seen it before (because with the NCLEX that seems to happen a lot!)

    Good luck! Eat fish the night before, chocolate during your break and get plenty of rest.

    Forgot to mention I found the EXAM CRAM NCLEX-RN book to be wonderful at breaking the medications down in a way they could be remembered.

    Just a thought

    Try the internet. It is on Amazon.com and might even be on Ebay!

    Good luck when you take you test. Remember, I don't think the test is designed for a person to feel good about it when they are taking it (or when your done for that matter). As long as your answering questions, keep believing that you can pass it.

    I had 1, maybe 2 med questions. I don't even remember what they were.
    Like Suzanne said, it's about picking up on your weaknessess more than anything.

    yep, im using both as of now and i think theyre pretty good, but as u know, they really dnt focus on meds and stuf.. more on med surg (which im confident about at this point) and strategies..
