HI Everyone!!! So last night in my previous post, I was starting to have a mental breakdown. I felt sooooooo unready because I felt like I was reading too much content and was trying to fill two years worth in. Basically,burnt myself out. I realized I did not retain anything because I was so stressed about knowing everything and when I would take an exam I would stress out over not knowing what a certaisen procedure was or what med that was used for again. I stressed myself out that I was up til 2:30 in the morning reading people's advice on the nclex. I got alot of good tips
So this morning I got up at 8am and was still frazzled so I decided to take the Readiness Exam for Kaplan to see where I was, although I had not finished the question trainer. The last question trainer I did was q4 and I got 64.68%, so let me round that off to a 65%. So I took the readiness exam 180 Questions and thought "****, what is this? Omg, I have no idea what this time. Oh god I'm guessing now." Needless to stay, that crap drained me and lower my confidence. I ended up getting a 56.11% which is a 78% of passing the Nclex for the first time...you can bet I started to cry because I know everyone has a score of the high 60s. So I called my friends and cried and cried. Then I pulled my self together and realized, omg all i had to do was be consistent with doing questions and doing the rationales. I trust Kaplan because everyone says its good and I trust alot of you guys on here who told me that Kaplan helped you so much. I decided to start doing 50 questions for an hour, take a break, come back and read the rationales....then another break and then come back and do another 50 questions.... basically train myself to get use to how Kaplan wants us to answer question. Thankyou guys so much! I did reschedule my exam from the 12th to the 14th lol, even though I know that won't help much lol. Anywase, any words of advice will help me in this journey. I know a girl like me who came from a refugee camp can achieve the American dream!
