    hey bettyvn...

    i guess we're on the same boat testing out suzanne's plan. i started doing the questions today and will keep on trucking until i finish the whole book. i have heard a lot of good things about her plan and hopefully the same will happen to us in the end.

    i just find it more therapeutic that i am not alone in this struggle and there are people just like me out there. good luck!

    You guys are great...I feel like I'm in therapy. I failed twice and I studied soooo hard. I used Kaplan mostly and I was averaging around 80% on their tests.
    I feel like my whole life has been on hold for the past year.

    Anyway, I got the Saunders books and I'm finishing up step one in Suzanne's plan. Hopefully I'll her plan soon and once again...start studying.

    Hi, Did you schedule a date yet? Let me know maybe we can encourage each other and motivate us. About Susann's plan. Are you doing the entire book. I have read some of it but sometimes I get bored any pointers on how to study better.

    Yeah,

    I rescheduled for the end of November...Suzanne suggested that I need to move the date out further out to the begenning of December because I do not have enough time to complete her program.

    I studied so hard using Kaplan and to be honest, Saunders questions seem a little bit easier to me (I should know...I've taken it twice!:angryfire) When I get bored with a chapter in Saunders, I tend to move on to the next chapter and go back to the chapter later on in the day or I take a break for a few minutes and then go back to the chapter!!

    I plan on doing the entire book, according to Suzanne's plan. I figured I'd try anything at this point considering that Kaplan didn't help me at all.

    We should all definately encourage each other. Hang in there!! You and I will BOTH pass the next time around. I've learned that positive attitude is the best way to go!!! Good luck

    You're right!!! #1, God would NEVER give us anything that we can't handle!! All these experiences just makes us stronger. The conclusion that I've come to is that all this extra learning that I'm doing to pass the NCLEX will only make me more knowledgable when I'm out on the floor doing nursing!! Good luck to you and keep up your positive attitude =)

    Jopal, I read your thread today, thanks for the pointer. I will try your plan. I sit down at work and read a little bit at a time but I get distracted when I stop. Anyways do you get the fluid and electrolyte chapter. I'VE READ IT A COUPLE OF TIMES BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO STAY IN MY HEAD.
    Try to push the date so that you feel more relaxed, Suzanne's plan takes time and depends on the person. What state are you from?
