    find out your weaknesses and nail them. its not like school where you can avoid certain areas anymore. do saunders book and tkae your time doing it. review it and UNDERSTAND it, its not about memorizing. buy or go to barnes and nobles and look for lacharity book its a great book for prioritization and delegation.

    I failed 3 times and passed on the 4th one haha. i would suggest buying PDA by LaCharity and do those questions and do alot more after that! maybe go for 5000 questions before you take the actual one again. take questions related to the topic your studying. you should stay away from trying to get high scores, instead read rationales and try to understand why that's the answer.

    hope this helps.....don't give up!

    I bought the PDA book by Lacharity and so far is helping. The first time I took the exam I had bought NCLEX 4000 but I did not use it. I think I will try it out this time around along with the saunders book and the hurst review book.

    I don't understand, I thought if you get priority questions and SATAs then that means you are at the level of passing. But people who are getting these questions also fail? Can someone please explain?

    Well it depends how many questions u get...if u stop at 75 and get a lot of SATA questions and priority usually means u pass...I stopped at 225 and had over 30 SATA and tons of priority and I passed..u can't really tell..a friend of mine stopped at 105 questions and only had 7 SATA questions..it's computerized so it's different for every1.

    Yah I spoke with someone who passed his NCLEX and said that he didn't get too many SATAs. I guess it's random. The best anyone can do is study as much as they can and then leave it all up to god on test day!

    This time around I took 265 questions. Majority of them were priority questions and I bought the PDA book just to make sure my priority "skills" are up to part! . I read in the Hurst book that if you fail and you take 265 questions it means that you barely fail. I dont know the truth to it
