I failed Nclex RN on first try.
I took Kaplan and Hurst, but was unsuccessful.
Can anyone share any other resources that worked for you?
I just purchased UWorld for 90 days. I read somewhere on here that Mike Klimek audios are very helpful. Does anyone know how to obtain them?
I believe it is quite the opposite about UWorld. Since this is your second time going through it you should definitely do better (First attempt at Uworld I scored in the mid 50s, Second attempt I was scoring between high 60s to high 70s).
If you know the answer because the questions and answers look familiar or you memorized it; then, you should think about why it is correct and how come the others were incorrect before submitting the answer. This will help you to understand yourself better and how the test wants you to rationalize things. Not only that you have an advantage you don't have to worry about choosing the right answer, now you can truly focus on how to strategically tackle the question.
You know the material, believe in yourself.
Maybe you just need to improve on test taking skills. I am not a very good test taker myself. Before I went through Uworld the second time I would watch youtube and or use other resources to improve my testing skills. Sometimes it is not understanding the question correctly, not being able to think critically or weak at application.
A friend told me to make the material fun so you can absorb it better.
I also learned to make the questions personal. For example, instead of reading the nurse just got report on blah blah. I would say to myself "I just got shift report on.... Who should I go assess first... etc..." It helped made the scenario surreal and fun.
Another thing I said to my self was, if there was absolutely one thing I can do to help reduce the problem what would it be?
I also made it a habit to read the question 2-3 times before looking at the answer choices unless I absolutely know it. On the nclex I read most questions 4 or 5 times.
If you feel like prioritization delegation and assignment was your weak point use the book; however, if it is your strong point I would try to find the areas you are weak in and improve in that with other books or contents in that area.
Every little improvement you make for about yourself will help you have a higher chance in passing.
