Hello :) I have a question. I am taking my boards next Wednesday(the 23rd). I purchased kaplan's qbank and I'm doing 200 questions per day ( I'll be done with them by this Saturday). Anyways, these questions are very... Read More

    Hello! I am taking the Kaplan NCLEX review on line. I am also "freaking out" I feel like my test scores are horrible. I got a 61% on the diagnostic test, I have only done 3 question trainers and have gotten 65%-55%. The Q bank is really hard I have a cumulative of 53% and I am so upset. I take the NCLEX in 2.5 weeks and need to pass, I have a job waiting! Any advice?

    I just posted a long story about my Kaplan test taking ability or inability! HA! Sounds like my scores are not bad, it is just so hard to see the low scores, in RN school that would have been a big fail. Did you take the NCLEX yet?

    Hey jenfos2, I'm taking my NCLEX on Thursday and am sooo nervous!!! My scores on the question trainers were:

    Diagnostic Test = 67%
    NCLEX Readiness Test = 64%
    QT#1 = 56%
    QT#2 = 60%
    QT#3 = 61%
    QT#4 = 61%
    QT#5 = 59%
    QT#6 = 70%
    QT# = Still need to take this 265 question one which I'm planning on doing tomorrow...

    As far as the Q-bank, I have completed 76% of the questions with an average score of 64% which I'm happy with. Just in the past week my scores have been improving greatly, I even got a 78% on one of the practice 50 question tests I did yesterday! I am doing 50 questions (the max it lets you) at a time. If you do like 20 at a time it can throw off your scores...

    What about you, how are your scores looking? Any advice? Your big day is coming up soon right??

    And any advice anyone else has? Or other Kaplan scores prior to taking NCLEX? Just trying to see where I'm at.

    Happy studying!

    Hello! I think your scores are great! Mine are not that good. I have a 55% on the q bank and I only have 5% left to do!
    My diagnostic is 61% I spoke to a rep. at kaplan and she said a 60% means you have a 89% chance of pass NCLEX on the first time! YOU AR SET!
    My qtrainers are all over
    1: 50%
    2: 65%
    3: 57%
    I am doing the rest starting tomorrow.
    did you do the sample tests? I got a 64% on the first one. I just noticed those tests. They are in with the q banks.
    You will do great. I only graduated with 20 people and 4 of my close friends just took it in the last few weeks. THEY ALL passed with only 75 questions! Keep me posted. Good luck. I will be studying all week if you want to chat okay?
    my e-mail is jenfoster2@gmail.com it is easier that way. I am still getting use to all nurses.com

    Just saw this:

    On page 28 of the Kaplan book it says, "Aim for 60% correct on Question Trainer Test 6 and 7 and all Qbank questions."

    Feel free to lower your standards.

    OMG I take my test on Tuesday (the 8th) and you just really made my day. I was underneath the understanding you needed 65% plus on the Qbank. Here I am averaging around 60% and I was freaking out. Ahhh so much relief. Qt6 I got 56% and Qt7 I got 62%. I feel much better now. Thank you!!!!!!!!!

I'm about to start Question Trainer 7 so wish me luck, this one's gonna be sooooo long! Twinessa, be sure to let us know how your exam goes and how many questions you get I am very excited for you and wish you the BEST OF LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And by the way, yesterday I did 4 sets of 50 Q-Bank questions and now have 81% of the questions completed with still an average of 64%. On the 4 sets of 50 yesterday my scores were: 64%, 56%, 70%, 56%... Haha, They are so random! Sometimes I do well and sometimes not as well, but I just think some are harder than others!

    Your question trainer scores are pretty solid and your diagnostic score was good too.

    How much of the question bank have you completed?

    How did you do on the Readiness Test?

    Watching the lectures on demand can be very helpful. Try giving that a shot and keep on during questions and reviewing the rationale.

    EDIT: just saw your follow up post. Sounds like you've done most the the question bank. 55% is still pretty solid. It's a little lower than the recommended 60% but I think they put in a high standard for good measure. Keep up the good work!

    OMG, prettyinpink57, I totally know what you are saying about the question bank being random. Sometimes I get a 60% and then I get a 78%. I keep saying that they need to shuffle the question bank a little better. The difficulty of the 50 question tests varies so much.

    Good luck on your question trainer 7. I am not looking forward to that long test. I just took question trainer 6 today and 200 questions was too much for me. Got so antsy!
