  1. 0
    I've been studying for a while now..

    Qbank - Total % correct 63% (been averaging 62 - 68 with some 70s on timed tests) on 86% of the questions done.

    QTrainer
    test 1 - 76%
    Test 2 - 70%
    Test 3 - 63%

    do i have to do all of them? my test is on thursday the 21st and to be honest im swamped, i feel burned out ive been studying everyday using hurst lectures, old flash cards, and kaplan questions and i feel like i cant wait for friday.

    i hear QT 6 and 7 are most like nclex, should i just do those?

    Yes I heard 6 & 7 were more like nclex because they're all application & analysis questions. I say start 6&7 NOW so you can have time to review rationales

    Your scored are close to mine and I passed a few weeks ago. I would do 6 & 7 and read the rationales.

    just did 7 and got a 62%, im debating whether i should not do 6 simply because of how burned out i am... its 10:45 so i would have to do it tomorrow and thats 1 day before my exam and everyone tells me dont study 1 day before.

    Why not do half of 6 today and then take the rear of the day off. Make sure to review test taking techniques so you have a way to answer questions if you have no idea. The techniques I used were umbrella answers, never select absolutes (always, never), on sata do the true false method, if you have no idea pick c. Exam cram has a two page review for the day of the test. It's available online. Good luck!

    Take that readiness test. But from your grades you should be fine

    Are you buying the Kaplan question from the website or are you using the one available online for free?

    the free ones

    edit: i bought the qbank though

    for the q trainers i took them timed 1 minute a question, and i didnt look at the rationales while i was taking it so i didnt give myself any information i wouldnt have known without reading it. and i also graded myself in 75 question intervals, i was pretty much in the range of 62-75 the whole time.
