    The Saunder's Comprehensive Review book in combination with Suzanne's study plan is the best NCLEX prep there is. You'll find the details for Suzanne's plan in a sticky at the top of this forum. Good luck to you!

    Thanks a lot for your reply. But how can I get it? Should I pay her or just ask for it?

    You'll need to get Suander's Comprehensive Review 3rd edition. Read the first post of the thread titled "First tip of my new study guide" (at the top of this forum), & follow what it says to do. Then private message Suzanne4 & request her study guide. She'll need to know which test you are taking, RN or PN, & what your home e-mail address is. You will need at least 6-7 weeks to complete the study. She doesn't charge for it.

    I, myself failed the NCLEX-PN twice. I've heard many great things about Suzanne's 4 study plan and she has 100% passing rate. She doesn't charge for this. Don't give up because I'm definitely not giving up. :angel2:

    Everyone from my class that took the Kaplan review passed with 100 questions or less. Our school now has the highest passing rate in Florida from our class. Kaplan had given us a group discount so we all took it.
    Good luck..

    I agree with the above posters Kaplan was really good for practicing critical thinking type questions. But it is a little pricey. Suzanne has helped everyone who has taken it multiple times, and international RN's, to people taking their exam for the first time. All you need is the Saunders Comprehensive book (3rd edition) and CD (the book comes with the CD). Good luck!

    Hello. I also had to take the NCLEX more than once. I actually waited a year a half later to take it again and at that point I had been out of nursing school for 2 years. I took a review course through a RN and we sat around her kitchen table and answered questions for an hour and then reviewed the answers the second hour. I soon discovered that my problem was not content, but it was test anxiety. Throughout this course I answered over 6500 questions and when I went to take my NCLEX it was no big deal because I had already answered thousands of questions. I don't know if this will help you or not, but my advice it just to answers questions and I mean a lot. The CD's are really good because it gives you the experience of answering questions on a computer. The books that I used was NSNA and Mosby's. I would highly recommend both of these books. Please don't give up and Good Luck to you.

    • i'm sorry you did not make it second time around. here is what i did after my first attempt.
    • i used saunders for content 4500 questions,
    • ignatavicuis-workman 5th ed medical surgical book -free online questions from evolve web site -http://evolve.elsevier.com/staticpages/index.html for integrated management questions only on each chapter. this covers prioritizing, delegation and triage.
    • i bought 21 days of nclex review questions from ncsbn for $45.00. i did all questions and concentrated on prioritizing, delegation, pharmacology
    • a kind person posted an amazing site for infection control, which is absolutely helpful if you read everything and understand: http://info.med.yale.edu/ynhh/infection/welcome.html.
    • i used this site to understand triage more: http://caring4you.net/disaster.html.
    • two days before testing, i did the free kaplan questions from this site: http://www.caring4you.net/tests.html. good luck and god bless.
