how to study and pass nclex-pn in 2 weeks?

  1. Hello,

    Any suggestions how to study and pass nclex-pn in 2 weeks? Is that even possible??


    If I work on the all Q&A and study the comprehensive review if I have extra time, will that be OK? Anyone using this strategy before ?


    Thanks

    I too will be taking mine on the 24th, I'm using the green Saunders for contents and the lippincott's Q&A for questions. Good luck.

    I'm in the rn program concurrently. It is so hard to manage the time to study my rn materials and spare some times for on materials

    It's possible. Just make sure you have a great grasp on content and really understand it and you'll be able to critically think to answer the questions. Good luck studying!

    Of course it's possible. If you understand how the questions work, recognize what the question is really asking you (don't over-interpret), and can critically think your way through a problem, passing in two weeks or two days isn't an issue.

    Some people really need a solid several weeks of studying before confidently passing. I took a 6-week review course first, and that's what *I* felt I needed. Some use a book for a week and do fine too.
    The bottom line is, do you really know the material? Rote memorization doesn't work on this type of exam. You have to be able to take the knowledge and apply it correctly, in many situations. If you can do that now, you can pass

    Good luck.

    Thanks everyone for the reply.
    I have this problem : after I study, I can't seem to remember the material. However, everytime when I see the test questions , I was able to apply the concept most of the time.

    And I read from Kaplan strategy book that, most questions on nclex is more toward application than recall type questiondoes any of you know any nclex review books have questions that are close to the standard of the state board? Thanks !!!!!!

    Hi. What material did you use to study priority questions for lpn exam?

    I have Hurst Review but no time and learn better by doing questions. I did have UWORLD PN but only has 1000Q only for $50 so I asked for refund.

    I have PDA but most people have said its for RN exam. Currently using Saunders + NCLEX3000 and a few study guides/exam cram cheat sheets. Thanks!!!!

    Did you not like the Uworld questions, because I've read the questions are very similar to the test
