    Hi everyone!
    I took my nclex yesterday and had the full 265 questions :/ took me about 4.5 hours. Like everyone else, I was getting down after question 75, then 150, then 225.. and so on. After 265, I left the testing center feeling completely drained and defeated. For the past 2 months, I diligently had been preparing for this day but felt like it was all for nothing. In August, I took Kaplan and found it very helpful. They give you access to their thousand-question Qbank, which personally I think is the best way to study for nclex. The questions are a great form of practice and it helps you gauge where your weak areas are. Anyway, my Kaplan instructor repeated that you CAN'T get down on yourself if the computer doesn't shut off at 75! If you're still getting questions, then you're still in the game!! So during my test I tried to remain focused on each individual question in front of me. I'll be honest though, I left the test and broke down in hysterics, and continued crying for the next few hours. About 3 hours after I finished the test I had my bf do the PVT (since I was waaaay too nervous) and I got the GOOD POP UP! I've never felt more overcome with joy and happiness!

    So all of you 265-ers out there...TRY TO STAY POSITIVE! 265 does NOT mean you failed. I personally know 2 other students from my University who also got 265 and passed! Good luck!!!!!
