    hey Paul -

    i used kaplan online... the q trainer tests and the q bank are the best way to go in my opinion... do lots and lots of questions and then GO BACK over them and read all rationales, even for the q's you got right. that's what i did.. and i learned a lot without having to re-read any of my textbooks. the rationales will show you why you should have answered in a specific way, so they help you understand exactly what you are being asked for.
    about meds.. yes, i got a lot of them on nclex... mostly teaching about them, side effects, when to take them, interactions... what not. there were some i've never even heard of! so i took a few educated guesses there... trying to look at both names of the drug to figure out what it was, what category.. abx, anti-HTN, cardiac...
    there is no way you can memorize them all.... so just try to look at the big picture.. categories of meds with common s/e, know the basic meds you always give.... antibiotics and the ones i mentioned above... some psych drugs/categories, l&d drugs.... No matter what you do, you will still have some questions on your nclex that you won't know how to answer..... but don't allow yourself to panic!! the answer is always there, do your best to narrow it down CORRECLTY (i used kaplan test taking strategies for that and the 'decision tree') and don't forget that while each question is important on that test, everyone gets 15 questions that do not count against you. anyway..... you still have a lot of time to study, more than i had.... if you worry about pharm and you happen to do kaplan... just do a bunch of questions on pharm and read the rationales... it all boils down to that.... BEST OF LUCK to you... if you graduated, you CAN do this, don't forget that!
