    Suzanne,

    I am sure I did over 4000 questions before taking the NCLEX-RN and I still failed. At 75 questions on top of that.

    Now I am not sure what to do. I did the Lippencott cards, The Princeton Review, The Saunders Review, The ERI review as Mosby's Review and the NCLEX Exam Cram. I studied using the computer as well as did questions and did the rationales for the answers to the questions.

    I am not sure what to do at this point. I just found out yesterday that I did not pass. The only thing I can think of doing now is to take Kaplan.

    I am not sure what to do know. I am so frustrated because I feel like all my studying did not pay off.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    I haven't taken boards yet but really soon and a friend gave me the advice of not to study from more than one book because then you only mess yourself around, so she just used Saunders ONLY, GOODLUCK, Always remeber you know the content, because you made it out of school. You can do it.
