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

    WOW noyesno, you take it the day after me!!! I am so happy I could cry, I just finished Question Trainer 7 and am happy to say I got a 68%!!!!! Sitting through 265 questions was a nightmare and hope that none of us have to sit through that many questions on the NCLEX (but if it's what we must do to pass then so be it! ) So you just finished QT 6 huh? How did you do if you don't mind me asking. How are you feeling? How much q-bank have you finished so far and what is your plan of action between today and the big day?!

    GREAT JOB on Question Trainer 7!

    That's a really high score!

    265 is a lot of questions and I really hope I pass with 75 questions. Crossing my fingers! I'll cross my fingers for you too!

    I got a 67 on Question Trainer 6.

    Here is how I've done thus far:

    Diagnostic: 63
    Question Trainer 1: 67
    Question Trainer 2: 65
    Question Trainer 3: 68
    Question Trainer 4: 62
    Question Trainer 5: 63
    Question Trainer 6: 67
    Question Trainer 7: I'm going to take it on Tuesday
    Readiness Test: 72
    Average Question Bank: 66% (still have 250 questions left to go)

    I know my scores are on target but I feel like I guess a majority of the time.

    Plan of action:

    Go through the lectures on demand for my two weak areas (Physiological Integrity and Health Promotion) throughout the week. I watched all the lectures on demand the week before starting Kaplan but I thought it might be wise to review my week areas again.

    Monday: 150 question bank questions

    Tuesday: Question Trainer 7

    Wednesday: 50 question bank questions and review lab values

    Thursday: 50 question bank questions, review lab values again, and cross my fingers that you pass in 75

    Friday: TEST DAY!

    Any special plan of action for you?

    WOW!!!! Your scores are GREAT, I have no doubt you will pass in 75! I'm actually going through all 265 questions right now from QT 7 and am really making sure I understand all the material, this is quite the process cause i'm only on question 93 and have been at this for a couple hours (I'll find something I need to review in my Saunder's book and then find another topic right next to it and continue reading on that - lol). Tomorrow I work a 12 hr shift at my job (currently working on a busy trauma floor as a tech so it definitely keeps a lot of this fresh!) and then Tuesday I plan to finish the rest of my q-bank questions (I have 81% completed) and study rationales and content in between each set of 50, and Wednesday (my LAST day yikes!) gonna just review as much as I can... All the notes I've taken, q-bank questions I've missed, etc.. I know people say to relax and do nothing nclex related the day before your test but I am not one of those people. If I give myself a day off I've noticed that I am slightly rusty when starting back up again. I do plan on getting a GOOD night's sleep (if I'm able to even fall asleep!) and packing myself a few snacks to bring with me along with a Naked Juice <-- For some reason they make me feel fueled and help my brain cause I seem to do well when I drink them.

    I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed and saying a prayer for us, we've worked so hard to get where we are and I think the big thing is just to remember that we ARE smart and well-prepared.

    I'm glad I've found this little blog, it's definitely nice to relate to people who are in the same boat as me!

    Hey Guys! Good luck this week! I take mine on the 16th. I have 4 friends that have already passed with 75q.
    I just did QT 4 and only got a 60% I think kaplan says try for a 65% that is okay I am not going to freak out.
    My Qbank is done and I got a 58% so it seems as thought 60% is my magic number UGH!
    Keep us posted
    HA! my one year old black lab just rolled off the bed. poor puppy!

    Thanks! I really hope I pass in 75.

    Question Trainer 7 is going to take a long time to get through and to review. Reviewing the rationale is so important though so that will motivate me to do it.

    Your plan for this week sounds really solid.

    In terms of feeling rusty, you must do what works for you. I don't think there is anything wrong with studying up until the end.

    I'm worried I won't be able to sleep the night before. Toss and turn, toss and turn.

    Naked juice and snacks sounds like a good idea.

    Prayers and crossed fingers in the meantime!

    Question Trainer 4 was really hard. I got a 62. It is suppose to be easier than Question Trainers 6 and 7 but I thought Question Trainer 6 was easier than 4. I thought Question Trainer 5 was harder than 6 too.

    Glad you aren't going to freak. I really think they make the percentage to shoot for a little higher than necessary for good measure.

    58% is really close to the magical 60%. I wouldn't worry too much.

    Poor puppy! Good thing labs are pretty resilient. I'm studying with my two labs right now. They are both laying in my bed and I am sitting on the floor. HEHE. Best study buddies.

    Yeah I definitely agree that the earlier question trainers were harder! I got 56, 60, 61, 61, 59, 70.5, 68 on the 7 question trainers so you can see the difference towards the end. Maybe it's not that they are easier rather I just was improving on my knowledge base and getting better with answering the questions. You are doing great, Jen!

    Have you guys tried any of the NCLEX-RN SAMPLE TESTS? These test are located in the question bank. You go to CREATE A TEST and then you'll see the NCLEX-RN SAMPLE TESTS on the left hand side right above EXIT. There are three 50 question tests available.

    I haven't heard anything about these tests. I just discovered them now. What do you guys think?

    I tried sample test one: 64%, I guess that is okay? It is within the 60-64% range. I e-mailed the NCLEX-Expert at Kaplan about my grades. Haven't heard back yet!

    Oh good to know about these, haven't even noticed them yet! I'm almost done reviewing all 265 QT 7 questions, just about 60 more to go... Jen let me know what you hear! And noyesno, good luck on QT 7 today... let us know how you do! I'm gonna try and finish the rest of my q-bank questions today and maybe even do those sample tests as well... what's the difference between those and the q-bank or QT's?
