So after 2 months of waiting for BRN to fix my name, i was finally able to test.. I had spent 2 months to prepared for this test, even when my name wasnt fix i still make time to study (even if it was only 10 questions per day). The week of my test which was today 7/29/11.. i had a panic attack 2 days before my date because i was doing practice questions and was getting alot of wrongs. at this point i thought about rescheduling. but my HUBBY, FAMILIES, AND FRIENDS told me not to..
today, i am glad i didnt. I got 75 questions and took the test in 45mins. When i got done i didnt feel like i fail or anything. I didnt feel any anxiety or panic at all. Instead of going home I took a drive around town to reflect how i did on the test. When i got home i finally got the courage to do the PVT and i got the good pop up. Now I can only hope that i did pass.
I got tons of interventions and teaching, few of sata, few of drag and drop the answers in the correct order. no math (thank god), 1 ekg strip which was asking for an intervention and it was a simple strip.
I highly recommend HURST, Saunders test strategies and learning extension (NCSBN) site because that was all that i did. I find that the questions format were exactly alike to learning extension and similar questions were found on NCLEX! I did a total of 3000 questions (2000 while i was waiting for my name to be fix and 1000 in the week of my test date) from my iphone app: mosby and saunders. My practice test i was scoring in the 60-70s (i now no not to worry about those scores).
good luck to u and me!!! ALSO GOD WAS A BIG PART OF MY LIFE DURING THE WEEK OF MY TEST DATE. I pray every chance i remember too.. SO THANK YOU GOD for always being by my side.
