    I was thinking to create my own study log. Since you have started, I will follow your daily log to motivate each other.

    My study materials:
    Saunders Comprehensive Review 5th (read one time, did some questions)
    Saunders Q & A Review 5th (doing questions by contents as daily basis)
    PDA (finished chapter 1-18, case study 1-14, stop at case 15 due to difficulty)
    Hurst Videos (watched a few of them)
    NCLEX 4000 (haven't done any yet)

    Since English is my second launguage, I take longer time to fully comprehend what I read. I really don't have confidence to take exam. I have been procrastinating my exam date ever since I got ATT. Finally I set up on 10/30. Wish I will be ready by then.

    Let's study together and motivate each other.

    8/24: Did Saunders ethical/legal 45 questions and read rationale
    Did Saunders mental health 25 questions and read rationale

    I am so glad that you joined this log and let's motivate each other.English is also my second language but it's normal to procrastinate about this exam.I have been rescheduling my date from past one month but i don't think i will ever feel ready for this exam.

    Thanks for the timely update your daily log. It makes me want to study.

    8/25: Did Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing 26 questions from Saunder, and read content.

    8/26: Read Mental Health Disorders charter content, will do questions later on.

    I don't like study Psychiatric. I don't know why Saunders put a lot questions on this content. Is this important for NCLEX exam?

    I like the way you study, studying one subject on different materials.


    I usually study from PM till 3:00 AM or later,wake up around 11:00 am. I should change it, since my exam will be 8:00 am.

    Every portion are equally important for the NCLEX-RN exam.I really hate psychiatric like you but it contains about 6-12% of the test.I am not a morning person and i study well in the afternoon and evening time.That is the reason i chose the afternoon time to test.I also wake up late in the morning at around 11:00 AM as i go to bed around 2-3 AM.Thank you so much!! You are also the reason that i am motivated more to study.
    Let's keep going as we are almost there.
