I am new to this forum but i really like all reviews.
Here is my story of Nclex...
I came to US about four years ago,Graduated from India in 2006.was a top student in my nursing school,got high grades.I took my first Nclex test in oct-2010,it was just a try to know how the test is,did'nt prepare well,result failed.
Second try i took kaplan review only but was not able to even start Q Bank thats really bad but i was pregnant at that time,took test feb. 2011,failed again
.was totally down but than thought God want me to study more hard.
Third try i took hurst review finished all review but was not get good scores in questions again.I did la charity book that was good for me i priority n delegation,felt well prepared that time took my test on OCT 2012 but result below in 4 areas,near in 4 areas.Than I gave up no more study for Nclex Rn,I cant do it,was feeling totally dumb no value of my 4 years study.
After couple of months my friends n family encouraged me don't give up u can do it.one of my friend told me about ncsbn review so about 3 month ago i started study again like totally new to this test feeling like giving it first time,done with ncsbn review,read all my content,got average scores in questions.
so this time I am using NCSBN review
Ohman David's QA and dvd.
LA charity PDA.
praying to GOD
doing david book now will be done with it in two weeks.My test date now is oct 16.any suggestions for me pleaseee....pray for me,nobody else knows this time that i am going to give my test only my husband.
First of all, never give up. Believe in yourself. U can do it! I used ncsbn 3 week course and Saunders. I honestly thought that those two recourses were great after I took my nclex. The actual nclex questions seemed easier than those from ncsbn and Saunders or pretty similar. Knowing the content is a must and fundamental but I learned that nclex is more into prioritization, delegation, infection control, and critical thinking skills. Practice a lot of select all that apply (SATA) questions too cuz it made me think more critically. You can select only SATA type questions from Saunders CD if u want to practice SATA.
And good luck to you! Success is near!
