    Hi Murphyal555,
    I was wondering were you looked to find a private tutor? I have taken Kaplan & Hurst. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

    Hey RedDogs,

    I acutally found my tutor on craigs list and she turned out to be AMAZING. Just make sure if you find someone on craigslist to meet at a public place and ask for references before hand!!

    Just took NCLEX this am (8 am appt) & probably slept about 4 hours last night. Very discouraged as test cut off @75 questions and since the questions were getting easier, I felt discouraged early on. Don't even feel it's necessary to look for "popup" from Pearson.
    Work full time, first time to take this exam, older than most taking exam. Studied with copy of Hurst CD (lent to me), Kaplan newest strategy book & RN prep course book, took practice tests available free on line from Kaplan along with tests from used book store bought Mosby,Lippencott RN prep books & reviewed content. Have invested so much money into school, books, etc. Just curious about tutor services & cost.
    I will pick myself back up & retest as soon as I can, but what a devastating feeling to walk out feeling as if you "know nothing". Great website, appreciate opportunity to just vent!
