I took my NCLEX last week and am quite embarrassed to admit that I failed. I was looking to see if anyone else had failed their first time and what they did differently that helped them pass the second time.
I have severe test anxiety when it comes to test like this. I passed the LPN program with a 3.87 GPA. I did well on all my assignments, projects, and tests. I did fail the first test of each class due to anxiety. Not knowing how it was going to be laid out and stuff.
For my NCLEX, I studied out of 3 books. 1 Kaplan with 250 questions, 1 Lippincott with 1000 questions. And 1 PN flashcard book. I did well with them, so getting 205 questions and failing came as a surprise.
What do you think?
