    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't pass. For some people, answering thousands of questions alone may work for them but it doesn't for some. I think what's more important is for you to understand/study the rationales of each question rather than count the number of questions you've answered.

    What really helped me in doing the questions was focusing on one subject/area at a time. I made sure to get 75% and above in that area before moving on to the next. I used the same concept while using saunder's cd and kaplan qbank. Goodluck to you Mabuhay and don't give up

    Did you get a letter saying that you failed or your name isn't on the website yet? If your name isn't on the website, that does not mean you failed. CA takes forever to get results...so I wouldn't be so quick to say you failed. Keep the faith!

    Hi everyone! This was my 4th time to take the RN test and I passed it finally!!I answered 75 questions, took about 2 hours, 4 select all that apply, one calculation, and alot of priority questions such as who to see first, and infection control. I took Kaplan along time ago but I failed twice. I finally used Saunder's and purchased Kaplan Qbank. For me, those two materials helped me pass this time. I recommend using Saunder's book, do about 3500 questions on the cd, and get kaplan qbank (I know it's expensive but it's worth it!). And finally, keep praying...Don't ever give up because God IS always watching us and his plan is greater than ours. To those who have failed their tests, please don't give up because your time will come!No matter how many times you take it, just continue to study, spend your time wisely, and do as many questions as you can. I think I've done a total of about 4500-5000 questions total and it really helped.

    I can't believe I did it!!!!I'm from california and I was about to think that I failed after not seeing my name after 3 days. My name came up online after a week. I was out of state having a vacation and my classmate called me to tell me that my name was posted!!!!Tears just started to run down my cheeks and I couldn't stop saying thank you to everyone who supported me, especially to God for making it happen I FEEL SO GOOOOD!!!This is really an unexpected and best christmas gift for me!!!Thanks for reading my long story but I'm just so excited to share it to everyone!!Happy holidays!!!!I feel like doing the monkey dance

    Depends on the state, some have no limit and others have a limit and then you have to do a refresher course before you can do anymore
