what scores where you getting in ncsbn? how does the review work? (so i know ahead of time?. i plan to do the 8 week course or should i do shorter week. it will be my second time doing nclex. i am reading saundars book each chapter at moment and doing questions with rational too in book. i have two saundars books.
i apologize for getting back to you so late! the course was a "review course" composed of several "modules" along with a question bank at the end. you begin with a 180 pretest to determine what you know and show you how you did as of that point. if you need it, in the review course, you can access a folder that goes over each specific topic and disorders that go with it. (i.e cardiovascular: pericarditis, cardiac tamponade, etc...) at the end of each module you are given a brief (18-30 questions) post-test on that subject.
if you feel comfortable with a subject, feel free to skip that module. (you can always go back and review if you need to.)
you can access the question banks at any time. there are about 10 question banks that consists of 18-20 folders each bank with each folder containing 20 questions!! that is alot of questions!!!!!
read the rationales no matter what! but most importantly, get used to how the questions are being worded!
don't worry too much about your scores. i began getting 50's% at my lowest and 83% at my highest. (i may have gotten one 90 and it never happened again!lol)
hope this helps!
