    My suggestion is try to find one book or review course and stick with it. Learn the content and study the questions inside and out, having too many can be overwhelming and can actually confuse you. That's just my opinion but good luck!

    I used Hurst for content review and Kaplan and Learning Extension for questions. SATA are my weakness as well!

    I like Hurst. I did used Saunders. But in my case i guess i need additional back-up references like ncsbn learning extension and PDA. I think most nclex examinees weakness are SATA. So we have to work on that more. God bless us.

    I sticked to Saunders for q&a's. It helps a lot but it just didn't work for me. So trying on other references is a must this time.

    I agree with nalaa: find a book and stick with it. Kaplan is very easy to read. They have good strategies gor figuring out how to answer questions that you do not know the answer to. I wrote out the strategies and referred to them as I took the practice tests until I could do the strategies without looking at them.

    Now you know what to expect from the test. Try to relax a little and don't beat yourself up. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!

    Thanks a lot. I can do it on my 2nd, i will make it my last nclex! The problem on my first was my time. I did study a lot but i felt it wasn't enough because i have a baby and most of my time was just on her. I did only study on my husband's day off in which he take turns in babysitting. I should have studied everyday. But anyway it was over. Time to start over again and make the most out of it.

    I just bought PDA and Kaplan 2012-2013 and will be giving more time on studying. I haven't scheduled for my 2nd/last nclex yet. But my plan will be on June.
