    i havent been in guam as an nclex taker so i cannot give u any information about it, im sorry. but it is good knowing that you passed the US immigration. i heard theyre a lil bit strict giving a visa to nclex test takers esp for filipinoes. anyways, the airport personnel in Guam are very strict with what you bring ie luggage etc. make sure you dont bring any photo copied material of any book. my roommate way back in college brought 10 pages (yep just 10 pages! of summarized normal values etc) of photocopied dianne Billings medical surgical nursing book and with her bad luck, anofficer searched her luggage (they do search luggage randomly not for everybody since prohibited materials often come from asia) and bec of those xeroxed pages, she is banned from entering any parts of USA until i dont know when. she wasnt able to take nclex as well.
    anyways, i am sure everything will be okay. dont be scared. think of it as a holiday. pray and take a deep breath. there are thousands of filipinoes in Guam. if you get lost, ask. thats what i do all the time hehehe...

    best of luck to you and i hope you pass.

    i took ncsbn course last year right after i had a misfortune with the first try, had 50% correct atleast max of 80% on other area. wasnt able to finish it since i ran out of time (took 2 week course-left over from a friend's review) i am currently doing Suzanne's plan full time with high hopes. my total score is 30% with ncsbn, i dont know hows that happen. i am still on positive side.

    hope we pass. u take care on ur Guam journey. be safe and enjoy. let us know the deelopments.

    with my friend, the last time ive seen her was like 5 years ago or so, her mom is a new nurse here in Ca at that time. Got married to an american, tried to get her as a private nurse of his step dad. still denied.all she can do is cry and go disco everynight sigh maybe her way to release tension ei? its been her 9th almost 10th year now since she had problems with bringing photocopied stuff in usa.
