    How much is the hurst review? Is it worth it? I didn't pass the first time
    I looked it up. If you take online it's $300 and live review is $350 but you have to check according to yor state when there would be a live. For me they don't have one till may so I would do online for $300 if I do it..

    Do you know where your weak spots may be, or the question you find difficult to answer?

    Its 300 for online review. 350 for live review. But you can only benefit with live review if hurst is going to have it near your area unless if you are willing to spend to go where they have the live review. i failed in my first try too. Im gonna do whatever it takes to pass the 2nd. We can do this!!!

    I honestly believe Saunders and Feuer audio is great. I'm an audio learner so the Feuer online audio review was extremely helpful. I met a "God Sent" educator who told me she teaches Nclex classes here in NY and that Saunders was the best book to use. You guys, DO NOT GIVE UP!!! You will pass.

    Hi, ProfRN4, I know many nurses who earn their nursing degree in America and fail nclex-LPN/RN, just like our friend that hasn't pass several times. I do not think she has language barrier. What about the people who earn degree in the U.S, does it means they have language barrier? You sound so foolish for speaking to our friend like this. To All the foreign degree holder, stop putting yourself down. You earn your degree just like anyone else. There are hundreds of stories like this, but people don't want to tell it on allnurses.com. She has the courage to explained her sad failure story and she is asking for help. By the way, You Are Not a Failure, because You are smart, you have wisdom, you have knowledge and you have the understanding to pass the exam like anyone. We are here to encourage this young woman in anyways. This is one of the reasons why people DO NOT WANT TO ASK because they are ashamed to ask for assistant because of people like you. I will encourage you to read at least two chapter per day from saunders yellow book or from any book that you have, and do many of questions & Why?means (Rationales). Within a month you should have read the whole book. Read first thing in the morning, it may take you about 2 to 3 hours and understand it.
    Good Luck!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome words Jole05, you are absolutely right! English is my second language as well I am an RN from PR, that is why my username have the RN on it...we earned our degree w/ sacrifice & we passed. We just need help w/ study guides and encourageme from other colleagues to pass the Nclex. I didn't pass the first try cause I didn't study like I was suppose to. I only used the learning extension from the Nclex ppl it didn't worked for me. So please I am begging you guys for support what study guide is the best and if the Hurst Review or another not that expensive works...we can do this I have faith and I will never give up!!! What is the best book and online review that can help me pick the correct answer/ critical thinking? Thanks in adviced And GB.

    Thanks a lot for you support. You're right I was feeling embarrassed at first and was thinking if I should tell that I failed "7 times" but then I told myself if I need help from everyone here I have to be honest, it's ok if I'm made fun of or asked anything. That's you I'm not getting mad if people are asking me "harsh questions" because I know they're trying to help me out.
    Thanks a lot
