    Sorry to hear that. I know failing is devastating. I've failed many times. I used everything. Now I'm using remar, feeling unsure about it...don't give up!

    I am really sorry to hear that.Believe me i felt the same way you did and i was 100% sure that i was going to pass this time.I knew all the content that was offered by Remar but still failed.When i got my official result day before yesterday and compared that with the previous one did even worst after doing the Remar review.The only thing i can say right now is just do not give up.I gave myself one week to grieve and have started all over again.

    oh no :-( I am so sorry to hear that. I still have two weeks before mine and I was using Remar alone, and felt a bit unsure so I got HURST. Don't give up, you CAN and WILL pass NCLEX.

    I got my results yesterday and I had again all near passing the same as my last results..

    I'm also giving myself a week to relax then start again just a little lost on where to start??

    I already have done Kaplan and Hurst...


    I'm not going to give up..I believe in myself and I made it this far.
    I'm just not a good test taker:/

    I'm just confused I scored 70% on the remar practice test and on the Kaplan book test I scored 68%

    It's just not my time yet..

    Wow Im so sorry you didn't pass your NCLEX. I can imagine your frustration. Im also using Remar and now don't feel too sure about it. Did you feel Remar helped with any part of the actual Ncelx?

    Please don't give up. I'm now regretting buying Remar. So do you feel Remar isn't enough

    I won't give up

    Honestly no it isn't enough make sure you use another resource and practice a lot of questions

    There was questions on the nclex that remar helped me answer but I had a lot of diseases and drugs that I never heard of so I had to guess

    Gosh I had heard so many good things about it :-( Best wishes to you

    Do you practice a lot of questions or solely remar

    Hey Hamburg. Is it possible to give me the link to the ncsbn review? For some reason i can not find it and i have been looking all over for it. Also i heard that you can only take it if you have failed three times. Is this true? This will be my third time taking the nclex. Good luck to you!!!

    Im sorry to hear you weren't successful with NCLEX. Don't give up and keep trying. You'll passed in due time.

    I know of 3 people who used ReMar review and passed. Out of the three students, only one solely used ReMar to prepare for the 2nd retake. Note: all three examinees were at least second to fourth time test takers.

    I believe the ReMar developer recommended utilizing supplemental material such as Saunders and Lippincott for additional content and questions. As examinees, we can't cover everything. I know everything is covered in Saunders; its just an overwhelming book. My "C" student classmate solely used Saunders for 30 consecutive days of review and passed however, that's her and not me.

    I personally know one of the authors of Saunders, attended her NCLEX review, along with others classmates, some passed and others we were unsuccessful with NCLEX. She IS an EXCELLENT instructor however, we all learn differently. Thereafter, we individually utilized a variety of NCLEX review material. A few used Kaplan others used Hurst and some attended Martin, Excell, etc. live reviews.

    I'm using Hurst, ReMar, Lippincott, and Mary Ann Hogan's Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN for supplemental content and questions. I know we all have various learning styles and what I'm utilizing may not work for another student. I wish you the best and will keep you in my prayers. Stay focused and go conquer NCLEX.
