I am curious to know whether the level of questions of the actual NCLEX-RN was harder/easier than you expected?
Is it any harder and more sofisticated than the questions you've practiced during your preparation?
After using the Saunders CD, I cannot really say that things were terribly hard, like Amanda said, a lot of it was just being there taking the test itself. I started out using the Kaplan Question trainer CD, & while it's good for practice, I think I preferred Saunders. Kaplan focused mainly on getting you to use their strategies & did not consistently explain why each answer choice was right or wrong. With a particular question, they would go through the answers something like this:
(1) Implementation; not necessary
(2) Not necessary at this time
(3) Not necessary at this time
(4) Correct; this is an assessment, the nurse needs
to assess first.
As for the strategies, I guess they're good to know, but I wasn't able to use them on my test. Good luck.
