    I've been using UWorld as one of my study aides. I really like the questions on it but feel they have taken a lot from PassPoint. I take my NCLEX this morning so I'll let you know how helpful it was for the exam haha

    Yes! I work in a coronary care ICU, and alot of the new GNs on my unit used UWorld and said it was really helpful. One of them even failed NCLEX the first time and then did the whole UWorld question bank and passed on her next attempt. They were using a free trial version... this is the registration link for the 1 week free trial if you wanted to check it out: https://www.uworld.com/nclex/registe...NT-971524-2015 Just breathe and practice, you'll do great. =]

    Here's a link for a free 30 day trial. I'm using it now. I how detailed the rationales are. https://www.uworld.com/nclex/registe...NR-997238-2015

    Yes, UWORLD Is good. Tougher, harder questions than Kaplan. Better rationales too. I think some of the questions can be too tough but it definitely helps prepare for NCLEX because those questions are pretty tough so UWORLD helps you prepare for that. I didn't use UWORLD that much but I do think it helps. I mostly used Kaplan but did set of 75 on UWORLD as well. Definitely helps. I passed NCLEX first try w/ 75 questions

    Kaplan's passing level is 65%, right? Im so nervous
  10. by   NJRN_
    Yes on the qbanks average is 65 & qtrainers the average is 60s. Being nervous is normal but just be sure to take deep breaths and go in confident because if not you'll be completely thrown off and panic which you don't want to happen!

    So do you highly recommend using UWORLD?
  13. by   leeann33
    I tested Tuesday and passed with 75 questions I HIGHLY recommend the UWORLD site. The rationales worked really well and I found myself "thinking" about each question choice with rationales from this site in mind. I also used LaCharity Prioritization, Delegation and Assignments 2nd Edition book. The book definitely helped. I had questions on who to assign what to, who to see first questions, a couple on infection precautions and some on breast cancer risks.

    I used UWORLD. I was at a 60-65% during the course of it. I completed around 1000 questions. I passed NCLEX first time in 75 questions 3 weeks ago. Use it, it works!!! See my post above......LaCharity Prioritization, Delegation also helped immensely as there were many many many questions related to that kind of subject.
