    Hi sakshi. I too have failed the exam yesterday. It was my first take though. Iv been crying hard. Lol. Im a foreign graduate too. Anyway, im planning on taking up hurst. Coz iv read that it would really help when you lack understanding about certain concepts. You check it out. Then maybe we could talk sometime and become study buddies.

    Hello everyone, I took my exam on 9th. I came home n pop up ddnt work, I had put a post here n was suggested to wait for official results. I got them today n it said I failed yet again! I just don't know what to do? Where to study from? My second time I had tried Kaplan, last few times studied on my own, this time had a tutor n bought ncsbn but only did little but out of it. I just don't know where I'm going wrong. I feel so bad for my parents who are soo supportive yet I keep giving them same news. PLEASE HELP ME. I WOULD REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT.
    I live in philadelphia, if someone wants to team up to study.
    I feel soo devastated, I just keep asking myself if I'm really a failure? How can I not do this in 7th time! How dumb could I be??
    I feel dummer I took nclex 9 times I did 3 reviews and still fail practice over 4, 000 questions. I know my material very well I have a BSN in nursing. I dont what else to do I cry everyday. I ask God to please help me. I wish I was in philedephia to study together.

    I would strongly suggest that you use the latest edition of the Saunders NYCLEX Review Book. Be certain to read and understand the rationales for both the correct and incorrect responses. I am an RN who passed with 75 questions on my first try less than 6 weeks after graduation. I also tutored other students who also passed on their first try. We ALL used the Saunders review book. We ALL made certain that we read and understood the rationales for the correct AND incorrect responses.

    I used the NCSBN review website http://learningext.com/pages/home the cheapest review time was for 3 weeks it's about $65 . It had tons of NCLEX question exams . I also used their RX drug card app. I did NCLEX questions everyday. At first I would get only about half right . I had to work on actually reading and literally dissecting the question before choosing an answer.. critical thinking . I knew the material well so I couldn't understand why my answers were wrong on the practice tests but once I took my time pointing out relevant info in the question I started picking the right answers and my scores improved. I passed the first time . Good luck

    I looked through your other postings and saw you failed the exam in 75 questions. You stated that you had purchased ncsbn two weeks prior and you didn't have the time to even go through all the practice exams. And on your other practice exams from different materials, you were scoring 50/60's. That's a HUGE problem that you're not recognizing! You have now taken it seven times and seems like your motivation to seriously study has depleted more and more. Are you working a full time job and have big responsibilities that you aren't practicing the tests to the point you raise your scores from 50's/60's to 70's/80's? You need to read the rationals and understand them. You need to question why you are getting them wrong and focus to correct them.

    Yes, I'm being harsh but you CAN overcome this. You WILL pass the NCLEX, but you need to change the way you study NOW! What are you doing buying ncsbn two weeks prior, especially since this isn't your first rodeo. You should have bought all the books and programs several weeks prior. Write down review points in a notebook or two. Scoring 50's & 60's on practice exams should motivate you to change your study habits. What have you done different from the 1st time you took it to the 7th time?

    @glad2brn: You are not being harsh at all. I know you're saying all this for my best. The first few times I know I was lacking in content so I had worked on that and this time the tutor had helped me alot in content but I kept underestimating myself and the answers. Even when you would sit with him to do questions my thinking would be no where near what his was. And his thinking would make sense. For example I had a question about aspirin and I kept looking for gi related but then he said why didnt I think about clotting either. And then I got the answer. My content is way more than before but it's about answering the questions.
