Okay, I have taken the PN nclex, and honestly it was easy, between all of the SATA questions, which I guess I did well on because I passed with 75 questions. Now, I am awaiting my ATT to take the RN Nclex, and I just can't focus. For the PN, I did the Hurst online,a little of LaCharity, and Kaplan strategies mostly, with some internet stuff sprinkled on; I studied very loosely.
Now, I still feel like I don't have a really good grip on my content. Honestly I'm a good test taker, so I could probably pass if I took it today, but I would not feel comfortable going to work at all. So I need my content.
I think Saunders along with Hurst again, would be perfect, but I get distracted so easily. And just looking at that huge book, completely makes me turn away. Don't get me wrong, I love to read, for fun; but this is not fun. And, yes being an RN for me is a dream which will be fun, and I know I need the content to really get there no matter how well I perform on tests.
I did the pre-assessment and got 72%. I did the best (in order) in Pharm (seriously?, don't know how that happened), Fundamentals, MedSurg, and Psych. I took a look at the 6 week calendar it gave me, which I know I won't use, which is why I am here.
So anyway, for anyone who is somewhat like me, how did you actually get through reading the entire Saunders book, without going to sleep and forgetting what you read?
