Kaplan Q-trainers Question

  1. 0
    Hello Everyone.

    For those whom have done Kaplan. How does the Kaplan Q-trainers work? I have completed 1 and 2 so far. Once I look at my results, which categories do I review in the Qbank? The ones I get 70% below or which ones?

    Also, When do I take the readiness test? Some people say that Question Trainer 6-7 assimilate the NCLEX, so should I do these two before the readiness test or after the q-trainers 6-7?

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

    P.S. Are Kaplan questions easier than NCLEX?

    You should aim for at least a 65% on question trainers 1-5 and at least a 60% on 6 and 7 because they are harder. My Kaplan teacher said to review any category that was under 65%. I took my readiness test before doing 6 and 7. I was attending a live Kaplan review and we were to do question trainers 1-3 before the class started and we did the readiness test on the morning of the last day. After the readiness test, based on our scores and when NCLEX was scheduled, she had us plan out when we were gonna take 5-7. She said do #7 3 days before NCLEX because its 265 questions and most like NCLEX. All Kaplan questions are passing level questions and they are harder than the actual NCLEX. Even my teacher admitted that.

    Hello! I used Kaplan Trainers. My scores ranged from 60-72%, I made sure that I read all of the rationales even if I got the question correct. I also would use Saunder's Book for topics that I needed to brush up on. I took the test and passed with 75 questions. I hope that this helps.

    Just set a goal for yourself. i.e., "I'll get at least 80% on every practice test." Don't believe everything you hear like Kaplan Qs are harder than the NCLEX or if you score 60% on the Kaplan practice Qs you'll be fine. It'll have you being overconfident and not putting in more effort to study. At least that's what happened me, and i failed. This time around, I'm forcing myself to promise to get more than 75% on my practice tests and making the the effort to study. I say forcing because I'm the hugest procrastinator. lol. :P

    keep taking tests til you reach your goal but don't stop at your goal... after reaching your goal, try to exceed it every time.

    At the end of the day, only you can decide if you are prepared for the test. For me it was more than the score. If I did not do well on a certain section, I would review it. That way I would be able to understand the content. You never know what will be on the test so it pays to be prepared, feel confident, and try your best. Being prepared is the important thing. What may work for you may not work for others. Only you know what you should do.
    Hope this helps!
