I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 48

I feel like burning most the LVN review books I bought as they did me no good what-so-ever on the NCLEX. The questions I got came out of left field. Stuff that wasn't taught in school like post... Read More

    raffy.... i'm more referring towards reading everything in saunders. i knoe what u mean about information overload. bcuz even though i gave myself enuff time to finish reading saunders i still feel like i can't remember EVERYTHING. i've been doing Q&A saunders as well as kaplan. kaplan is hard & gets me frustrated, but u're right tho. it helps me to think even more in depth when it comes to critical thinking.... stuff that will help when i take the nclex. what did u do to help u pass?

    I was against review from the start. During nursing school I had a hard time remembering what I read from the beginning of a chapter when I got to the end of it. I figured doing straight Q&A would be more effective. I did 1500 questions from saunders, 1500 from lippencotts, and I did around 10 ATI practice tests. I also read my entire ATI pharmacology book. I dont know if i passed it yet, still havent recieved my results.

    Are you serious??? Where in CA did you take it??? I took mine in San Jose. I have no idea why yours is delayed. My friend took hers on the 14th, a day before me, and she hasn't gotten her results either but I think it's because she had some problems about address change and name change. Did they tell you why yours was barely mailed out today?
