NCLEX 2017-2018 Suggestions on study materials (U-world, Hurst Review, NCSBN review)?

  1. Hi everyone

    Does anyone have any suggestions on study materials (U-world, Hurst Review, NCSBN review)?
    I had been using U-world only but did not help me on NCLEX. I see people on allnurses.com are using Saunders but I personally think it's too easy compared to the real NCLEX. I personally do not like Kaplan. What other resource materials do you recommend? I do not know anyone who uses NCSBN review but I am thinking about purchasing their 5 week course. Please help. I need to get a job to pay off my school loans. Million thanks!

    I used Brilliant Nurse and Prep U Lippincott Passpoint free trial. I passed 10/28/17. I like Prep U because it weight your progress in levels. Level 4 you're on the level of people that passed NCLEX. I also used NCSBN & (Hurst lectures was awesome) before and the questions I believed mimic the NCLEX. I was near passing and above passing in one or two areas but didn't pass. I believed it is a good program as well. All the best to you. You can do this Comrade.

    I am done with all the Uworld questions and
    reusing the questions again. I read all the rationale but I still feel I am not ready for NCLEX. How to prepare better? I feel that I do need more contents.

    Be positive that you can do it! Read and analyze every rationalization of an item.

    I failed my first Nclex RN exam and I am also in the process of reviewing for my 2nd try! I am using Saunder's Q&A 6th edition, also the flashcards, I did NCSBN for a month but this was last month so it has already expired and i plan on purchasing UWorld for a month (probably next month once im done reading Saunder's) What materials are you using? I need to practice moreon my test taking skills.

    What do u think about NCSBN?

    I'm using U world faithfully but didn't help me for license exam. U WORLD has good rationale and it's a good practice

    Yes, from my opinion it NCSBN mimics the exam. It also has lots of content as well. I did my exam 10/28/17 and passed.
