    My tips are: don't kill yourself cramming for the NCLEX. You already KNOW this stuff! You can do some light content review, on your weak points (mine were meds and OB) and then just make sure you know that Kaplan strategy backwards and forwards.

    1. Reword the question
    2. Eliminate answer choices you know to be incorrect
    3. Don't predict answers
    4. Recognize expected outcomes
    5. Read answer choices to obtain clues

    Just follow those steps and you will increase your chances for passing. Good luck! We're all pulling for you. I know that after the test, waiting for the results was almost worse than taking the test itself! Find out if there's a way to look up health care providers in your area (for example you can look up FL health care providers on http://ww2.doh.state.fl.us/IRM00PRAES/PRASLIST.ASP
    which is how I found out I passed.):spin: It was there a little less than 48 hours after I took the test. Also, I had a 1:15pm appt to take the test and I showed up at 11:30 and they let me take it early. Don't study the day before or the day of the test, you'll just freak yourself out.
