    mydestinyy... THANKSSS!!!! I have a calendar and its all filled up. There are times where I'm so exhausted from the daily run around that I dont feel like studying. Its hard to motivate myself but I know that I cannot be behind, because last week I decided to study 5 days a week instead it became 2 days of studying. The more I put this back the further I'll be from passing and cant wait to get it over with!! I notice the days I dont feel like studying, I decide to just watch the videos because I rather do something then nothing. I'm very visual person so it is more interesting to me to watch vs look at the book. Also, I started having my brother test me as we drive to the hospital/home. Again, I'm repeating what I have studied so I don't forget
    You are welcome..and i totally understand what you mean..there were times when i felt the same way..like i just did not feel like studying..n you know what even if you force yourself you cannot study or should i say retain anything..in times like that i did thr same thing u are doing..listened to hurst..did my laundry..cooked my favorite food..and took it easy..cos your brain needs to relax too!! I would read some motivating stories online ...i forced myself to study at times..it did NOT work!! So take breaks in between..oh n btw i love you tube cos i am more of a visual learner too..like i was getting so mixed up with MG,MS,GBS,ALS... I watched videos of real people with these disorders n just listened to them talk..it worked for me cos when i saw GBS..i would remember the video..so hey what ever works for you...bottom line..STAY CALM..YOU GOT THIS N HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF..dont be hard on yourself for not sticking to ur study plan..( mine is scratched out so many times..it has holes in it..lol)

    My advice is not to become overwhelmed with so many different things to study. I thought I needed everything to study and ended up with 10 different books plus my Hurst material. I became completely overwhelmed. I have 3 small children and my life is quite busy as well. Something that helped me learn the HURST material and all throughout nursing school is to record your notes while you are sitting down to study them that way you can listen to them on the road, washing dishes, washing/folding clothes, mowing, or anything else that you have to get done. This way you can listen to much more material and not feel like your selling yourself short by taking care of other responsibilities.
    For the NCLEX, I ended up not worrying about my other 10 books of NCLEX study material (I actually hid it so I couldn't see it!) and just studied HURST. The content is great and if you can just learn it the way they say it, you can apply the information to any disease process. When I sat down Tuesday to take my exam, I immediately started freaking out because my very first question was on some random disease that I had never heard of! But, I used the Hurst material to rationalize each question and my computer shut off at 75 questions! It has been two days today and I am waiting for the quick results to let me check because it still says my test results are unavailable at this time, but I have been getting the good pop up on the PVT since 30 minutes after I took my exam....probably tried it about 50 times now! So, if everybody is right about the PVT, I passed.
    Good luck to you and keep your confidence! I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
    Your totally right about hiding the books. Im really happy for your success. CONGRATSSSS!! wish the best for your career as well!!!

    I studied 6 out of 7 days a week. I found that when I was reviewing the material, I retained more when I took my time with it. I would spend about 2-4 hours a day reviewing just 1 topic, ex: fluid and electrolytes over the course of 2-3 days. Reviewing it over and over again within those 2-3 days. Then I moved onto the next topic. In addition, practicing questions is a must. I was completing 70-100 a day and 2 weeks before my test date it was closer to 150-200 a day. The last 2 weeks before my exam, I reviewed the entire Hurst book again. By this time, I was able to read a topic a day and state it to myself. I retained it. Highly suggest picking ONE source to review for learning your core content (unless you don't understand something) and go crazy with using multiple sources for questions.

    So how long did it take you weeks/month wise when you took 2-3 days studying one topic???

    A month and a half. Some topics did not require the 2-3 days.
