    oh man...I just looked up the cost of the DVD set. it's $995. I had no idea it was that much. I just used the ones available at my school. if you're interested, judymillernclexreview.com.sorry
    Back before I passed my nclex I looked into Judy miller I even purchased a few vids u can purchase them one by one I liked them & I even emailed customer service & they offered discounts which I thought was soo sweet ultimately even tho I liked the DVDs I ended up goin with Hurst & I loved it & it was more affordable

    please relax your mind. it is not how how many times you failed. focus on why you are failing. Go back to basics. take your med surg book and assumed you know nothing. read all core contents. nclex makex even the smartest one look dumb. I graduated three years ago and I ve failed three times. I ve done kaplan, Learning extensions 3 times. Dont give up. I am using atI AND feUR REVIEW materials I bought in ebay. Over this three yrs, I ve gathered resources relating to nclex. You need to build up confidence before taking it again. it is like pay back. Dont give up. email me at Elvisen@hotmai.com

    Hi

    I see that you have failed nclex for the 7th time and I think this is because of your study methods. I have not been in your shoes, but I understand how hard the process is. I only took it once and I will NEVER forget the 3 months of studying nonstop and how stressed out I was.

    Throughout college I have had test anxiety, I have ignored it for a long time until I got pretty severe, it lead to panic attacks. I couldn't ignore it anymore, I decided to see psych bc they can prescribe meds. I got started on anxiety meds. I took it 3 months before nclex and stopped when I passed nclex. As soon as I took the anxiety med all my stress, worries, anxiety just disappeared I wasn't sure if I felt better because I knew I was taking something for it( like a placebo effect) or if it really worked lol. I am not saying you should go and see meds because I don't know if you have test anxiety. There are a million ways to decrease anxiety but I didn't have time and nerves for anything.

    It was time to study for the nclex: I had no idea where to begin. I didn't want to study content , there's no way I can learn 4 years of nursing school in short time frame , I also knew that I learned a lot of content in school but I only remembered a small percentage.

    So I decided to start doing questions -- I must have bought 6+ nclex books, Kaplan, Saunders, and so many more. I read so many posts about how great these books were and how it helped others pass nclex-- so I figured if I have them all , and read them all I am going to master nclex.

    I realized that i did not have time to read all these books, so i decided to stick with one book, this way I would not get confused.

    I started with 50 questions per day with tv on, terrible scores, read the rationales. I kept doing this for 2 weeks straight! Every 2 questions my eyes were focused on the TV! My scored were terrible, I started feeling pretty stupid and that's when anxiety kicked in! I was thinking holly crap, I know know nothing! Time was flying, so the next day I went to Starbucks every single day, ear plugs, and started reading questions and rationales carefully! I was more focused and energetic. My scored when watching TV below 50! My scores with no tv, distractions above 70! I started with 50 questions, to 100, 150, 300!

    Whenever I got a question wrong, especially when you get many questions wrong about the same disease- that's when you know that you should review the content and that's exactly what I did!

    Read the questions carefully, read them twice if you have to, breakthrough questions down, eliminate the answers one by one, read the rationales, sometimes the rationales reach you how to select priority questions.

    I think Nclex is all about test taking skills and a little knowledge! Sad but true.

    Do not give up, I understand that failure is not easy to overcome , I also know that it can be hard to start studying from the beginning. You have an advantage now, you have seen the test many times, not you have a better idea about the questions and the content.

    Please feel free to send me a message with any questions. Best of luck, be strong!
