I could not have passed NCLEX without Kaplan. I struggled all throughout nursing school. I also never passed HESI. Because of this, I knew I would have to study extra hard for NCLEX. I basically made studying my job. I did ALL of kaplan (watched the videos, read the book, did all question trainers, and did 100% of q bank questions). My average q bank was 60% (however, I made several 48%) and I made a 67% on question trainer 7. I thought question trainer 7 was the most like NCLEX. Question trainer 7 was more of analysis than knowledge based questions which is what my NCLEX was like. I feel like Kaplan prepared me for NCLEX. Best of luck to all of you! Think positive thoughts, you CAN pass NCLEX!!
