    You can do 10,000 questions before the exam, but if you dont understand why you are getting the questions right or wrong, then you are just cheating yourself.

    I would suggest to chose 2 sources to study, 1 for content and 1-2 for questions. The Key is to know WHY you are getting the questions wrong. Lets say you get one question wrong due to not knowing the content, read about that content right and there, dont put it off. Have google opened, and read about it, understand it. Once you know why you got the question right/wrong and understand it, move to the next question. The Key here is to be consistent: Study content hardcore 6-7 hrs a day for 2-3 weeks and then do questions every day for 2-3 weeks ~200 per day. You need to be confident that you are going to pass this test.

    Everyone gets nervous and its normal, I was super nervous, but once you get to the testing center, know that you will pass, have faith and TAKE YOUR TIME. Read the question twice before you look at the answers, then look at each answer, is this answer giving you the answer to the stem of the question? Does it make sense?

    Do questions, questions, questions and make sure you understand ALL rationales as to why you got them wrong (even the correct ones). I did 150-200'Qs per day (6000+ all together)
    How are you with the content? Go over your weaknesses. I concentrated 90% of my time on Qs. Passed first time around
    What really helped me-Saunders (great book-for the questions)
    There's also an app for ur phone Kaplan Qbank (free 135 Q's)
    Check it out and good luck with ur studies

    I took my NCLEX in 2010 right after they made the changes. I bought so many different NCLEX sources. But I only used the latest edition of Kaplan's Strategies, Practices, & Review. I read it through twice from cover to cover: once just to say I completed the book; and twice to actually pay attention to what I was reading in order to answer the question why......why this answer and not that one. And I didn't move on to the next question until I could honestly say, ohhhhh I can see how that could happen. I studied about 8 hours total while I was waiting on the ATT. But I had been an LPN for over 20 years AND my ADN completion had just taken place as well.Personally, I chose to study only one source because I didn't want to confuse the content with one guide saying this and another one saying that......just my preference. All the other stuff, I got a refund since I never took them out of the wrapper.One attempt, 75 questions, and within one hour of starting, I was on my way back home. Took me 2 hours to try the PVT, and when I did, SUCCESS!I read somewhere that ever 7 years the NCLEX is revised. So that was an issue for my selection of materials because it was revised 04/01/2010 and although I bought an NCLEX book as soon as I completed my last theory exam in 2009, my official graduation was not until 04/16/2010. So I had to regroup.All of that to say this.....make sure your choice of study materials is current.Good luck!
