Mosby Online AssessTest

  1. hi, all ...

    today i took the mosby online assess test. it is a 265 question
    nclex-style test ... once you are finished, it gives you a more
    detailed analysis of you results than the prep books/cds i have seen ...
    plus, it gives you a probability of you passing the nclex based on a
    normative sample of 4000 people who took the assess test in 2001 then
    went on to take the nclex ...

    for example, if you score x% on the assess test, they say "of those
    who took the assess test in 2001 and got a score of x%, y% went on to
    pass the nclex".

    i got 75% on the assess test, and they say that gives me a 98% chance
    of passing based on the predictive power of the 4000 who took it in
    2001 ... (for whatever that is worth, of course) ... i am still
    studying my butt off ...

    at 40 bucks it isn't inexpensive, but it was quite valuable to me ... good luck ...

    I got a 75 on mine as well. I didn't think that the score was all that great until I noticed where it said on the score sheet that I scored higher than 96% of the norm group. It helped relieve some of the anxiety before NCLEX and I could relax a little.
    My actual NCLEX shut off at the minimum 75 questions and like everyone else, I was sure that I failed (I didn't.)
    I kept getting all these crazy questions about colostomies/ileostomies and when I went home I looked up some of the questions I could remember and of course my answers were wrong. I still passed anyway.
    Mosby AssessTest is a good and fairly inexpensive investment.
