NCLEX in 2 days

  1. Hi everyone,
    I was wondering what is the best way to prepare for the NCLEX the day before. I'm not sure if I should spend the day studying or relax and possibly meditate. I feel good about taking the test but I get test anxiety and I still feel nervous so I feel I should relax. At the same time I feel like I should get in the frame of mind and start thinking NCLEX-ish. Any suggestions?

    Take time to relax your mind! I am taking mine tomorrow, so I am about to go play basketball with some friends, since that relaxes and frees my mind, ha. Goodluck!

    I scanned my notes in hurst and some important topics in examcram (like drugs etc)a day before my test, I did the qbank 7, 2 days before my test, I did my test 2 pm last saturday and I scanned my notes on Infection Control and Cram sheet in the morning, I relax for couple hours while on my way to the testing center, I didn't drive but my friends did for me, I don't wanna drive if I am nervous lol.
    It works for me, I am a cramming person ever since college. if you think you need to relax a day before just do it :-) Good Luck on your test Nurse :-)

    Use the examcram sheet. You can google it. It has study tips, lab values and important info for the exam. Good luck!!?,

    I did use that book but not too much. I answered about 300 questions from that book. I mainly used NCLEX 3500 and PDA and Kaplan strategies book 2012-2013
