Quote from KBRN2011
Well i have alot. I have saunders (4th edition), Kaplan, Nclex 4000, exam cram and q & a review for nclex rn by lipppincott and i want to do three weeks nscbn. i just don't know how to use them all and where to start with all that i have. Also, I work but they have me working one day a week per diem which works out great but I'm not using my time well. How are you using all you resources and get everything out of them. Can you give me an outline of your study plan
Well, I started with refreshing my content, since I graduated last 2008 from BSN. I'm using Saunder's for that, then after 1 system, I will proceed and answer the questions from its CD, then the corresponding system also in LaCharity PDA. I'm almost done with it right now. After that, I'll reread Kaplan Strategies as I've already read them last dec 2011. I will try to answer its CD, along with Exam Cram, nclex 3500 and 4000. Planning to get NCSBN q banks 3 weeks before my test date. Hopefully, will make it this time. =)
You should assess yourself first if you want to do the content first. Coz I read from somewhere here in AN, that he/she will start answering questions then if the score isn't good, he/she will review the content and retake the test again. It's actually a case-to-case basis. But one thing's for sure, you're the only one who can really design your own study plan. Whatever works for you, is the best study plan. =) There are also successful testers sharing how they studied for the exam. You can check them too for more ideas. Good luck!
