Hi All passed 2nd time using Kaplan!

  1. Just wanted to let everyone know that I passed 2nd time, I studied using Saunders first time good for content, but Kaplan really helped me. My computer shut off at 75. For all those getting so worked up, I know you have come a long way, but you need to relax, and concentrate on just studying and critical thinking. And go into the exam with positive thoughts and know you will pass. Sometimes I feel more anxious when I read some of these threads and get more negative, but I kept thinking positive and knew I was going to Pass because I reviewed. And for those just coming back from the exam lets be positive because alot of people are reading these threads and feeding into your anxiety. We actually need to start a real thread about Nclex and help each other study and share notes. I think I read only a few threads real old that actually had some valuable information it was from people who were preparing for the exam. Good thing about the Nclex is that you can retake it again and again and again, isn't that Amazing?????!!!! So don't ever lose hope, the board doesn't lose hope, so why should we.

    Honestly, I thought Kaplan was harder then the Nclex. I was scoring 54% to 64% on Kaplans Qbanks and trainers. And they said you need 65% or higher to pass, somedays when I would review I would just get 46%.

    The key to your Destiny is in your own Hands!!! (who said that?)

    peace

    Same here, Kaplan for me on my 2nd try...Congratulations for all of us who got depressed and yet stood up to face the nclex again! And for those who are still having doubts to whether or not retake the test, GO for it!!!!

    Congratulations! A lot of people believe that the Saunders book is good for content review and Kaplan is great for critical thinking like the actual test except harder.
