Is it too early for me to panick???

  1. Hello,
    I have been practicing questions with the Saunders CD for about 4 days now doing 100 questions a day and reviewing the rationale for every questions. So far I have only been scoring 63-65 ( my highest was a 78). Right now I'm doing client needs/physiological integrity. I'm scheduled to retake the NCLEX-RN on Nov. 26th. With me scoring this low, I'm beginning to panick and really am starting to get frustrated. Am I on the right track and should not worry about how I score? Please help me build my confidence..Thank you!

    What you need to consider is that you're learning what you missed as you study. If you went back and took the same questions over you would do better. This is part of the process, study and learn now. So please don't panic, continue to study and learn.

    Good luck to you.

    thanks for giving me some feedback. I also hope that since right now I'm concentrating on client needs/physiologic integrity ( I was below passing with my first NCLEX-RN attempt) that I should keep practicing it until I'm more comfortable before going to the next level/category. Does this sound good? Yeah, I study all the rationale and why during the exam review and I even write down things that I have forgotten or not so familiar with and then refer to my book. Please keep encouraging me. Thank you!

    Hi,
    I have the Saunders 3rd edition. Yes, I did attend a live review class right after graduation ( they came to our college). But I didn't benefit from it ( obvioulsy coz I didn't pass the first time.. ). It wasn't Kaplan, it was thru Drexel Univ. After getting my result ( and failed ) I was going to get a refund but I decided to take it again, this time they sent me a live review course on DVD ( 15 DVD's with content program covering from Neuro to Integumentary, Peds, Maternity, Newborn, Fundamentals, Psych). I watched the whole thing ( took me 2 weeks to complete) and I felt like it was more beneficial than the one we got at the college coz I can stop and rewind it anytime. So, now I'm just concentrating on the Saunders CD for practice.
