    I used Saunder 5th Edition, Lacharity's PDA & Kaplan.I did 200q everyday. 100 in the morning, 100 @ night. A month to my test date, I increased it to 150-200 in the morning & same in the night. But all I can say is do what works for you.The 1st time i took it was Jan 28th, i used only ATI book(my school used it) & I was filled with so much fear & lost confidence in myself. But the 2nd time around (March 31st), i prayed, read & believed in myself & God did the rest for me.Go in there & do your best. All u need is in your brain u just have to tap into it always believe that u will succeed.Good luck to you!!

    Hi aisha,

    I saw your message in my inbox but the system would not allow me to reply. I just wanted to say thank you for the Congrats on passing the NCLEX I appreciate it. I feel your Kaplan scores are fine they are around what mine were. My key was just practicing question after question and reviewing all rationales even if I got the question right.

    Also I prayed and gave it all to God. He will not let you down. Be confident, stay focused and put your trust in the Lord, but you also have to trust yourself. Do not over think the questions. Review as many questions and rationales as you can but don't stress yourself. I just prayed for ypou before responding and I will continue to pray for you. Please keep me posted! I am excited for you.
