    Thank you all so much for all the support. I read all your posts and it makes me more motivated to try again. Especially to Juls & LoveBSN who were always there to support me. i am now determined. I can do this!!! the strategy of Kaplan didnt help me. I got weak due to all those unfamiliar drugs! I need to dust off and start again. I hope you guys can still guide me on my journey to success (hopefully)
    I wouldn't focus too much of your time on drugs. I only got 4 or 5 drug questions and most people I have seen on here got fewer than that or none at all. I think if I were you, I would practice SATAs and priority Qs along with whatever else you think you might have trouble with.
    I will be checking here often to cheer you on, girl!

    I wrote you a long PM but it didn't go thru.
    I guess in a nutshell, keep doing practice Q's. Try not to overload yourself with information from too many sources. That can be extremely overwhelming. Just pick a couple of your favorites and stick with those.
    The two I found most helpful were Saunders CD and NCLEX 3500. I had trouble with SATAs, so I would do lots of 'alternative format' questions and read the rationales to make sure I completely understood them.
    Above all, keep a positive attitude and tell yourself that this time you will succeed! And pray...which I know you already do. I know I couldn't have done it with out Him.
    Keep pushin' forward!

    It was a CD that came with the book. It has tons of practice Q's. You can do quizzes, tests and there's also a study mode that gives you the rationale after each question.
    Hope that helps

    i know exactly how you feel. took me 4 times to finally pass but i never gave up! so dont give up! you can do this! maybe you can try hurst review? if not, i would read saunders like my life depended on it haha. every chapter practice alot of questions. and buy the PDA by lacharity. drugs isn't hard if you group them. most of them have similar side effects and theres always one from each drug that seperates them from the rest. hope this helps! goodluck!
