Does the NCLEX really look at how long you spent on a question? I'm a little obsessive and spend a good amount of time (not excessive haha) reading each quesion and answer choice. Will that hurt me?
There's no proof or indications that the time you spend answering each question is being monitored or counted for (or against) the test taker.
However, my personal strategy was to spend no more than one minute on each question. If you don't know it, then you just don't know it, so there's no point in wasting precious time on any one question.
