    It's been a couple weeks, but I wanted to go back to this site and post my scores for Kaplan...

    This is in the order I took the exams...
    Diagnostic - 56
    QT1 - 67
    QT2 - 56
    QT3 - 60
    Readiness - 59
    QT4 - 54
    QT5 - 53
    Q-Bank - 60% Average with 82% complete. I started on q-bank because my Q trainer scores were going down. I started off mostly in the mid 50s to low 60s and ended up in the high 60s to mid 70s.
    QT6 - 65
    QT7 - 60

    I prepared for 5 weeks total, but prepared intensely with Kaplan for 3 weeks. During my last semester of nursing school, I started going over the PDA book by LaCharity. I probably reviewed about 60% of that book and it was very helpful. I used the Saunder's yellow book throughout nursing school and started reading it the last semester of nursing school, but I did not get far. I read the entire E-book for the Kaplan course. I watched the online videos in areas I was weak in. Before I started the Kaplan course, I reviewed ECG rhythms through this online ECG Simulator that I found. ECG Simulator | SkillStat Learning - Fast, Fun and Effective! It was very helpful because I had 5-6 questions that involved rhythms.

    I passed the NCLEX-RN with about 78-80 questions. After questione 75 I stopped counting and it shut off so unexpectedly. I had 8-9 SATA, 1 ordered response, only 1 med calc question, about 6 med questions in all, one chart question, and one "point to where this is" question. I had a whole bunch of prioritization and delegation questions and as I mentioned, 5-6 questions involving heart rhythms. NCLEX is set up just like Kaplan and the questions are much more straightforward.

    Hi everyone, I would like to share my testing scores from Kaplan review. Here are my scores:

    -Kaplan QT 1-7 scores:
    : 59, QT2: 59, QT3: 48, QT4: 64, QT5: 58, QT6: 64, QT7: 62
    - Kaplan Qbank average: 59% (99% completed)
    - Kaplan Diagnostic Test: 63%
    - Kaplan Readiness Test: 65%
    - Books: I used 2 books: Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination, 5th Edition and Kaplan NCLEX-RN content Review Guide, First edition.
    - NCLEX result and # of Ques: Pass with 92 questions.

    I took my board exam on sep. 11, 2013 and I pass with 92 questions. I have to say that Kaplan's questions were well prepared me to for the real exam. I'm strongly recommend for nursing students to take Kaplan review prior to the real exam.

    QT1: 59, QT2: 65, QT3: 55, QT4: 57, QT5: 57, QT6: 55, QT7: 51
    - Kaplan Qbank average: 59% 100% finished
    - Kaplan Diagnostic Test: 65%
    - Kaplan Readiness Test: 53%
    - NCLEX result and # of Ques: Pass with 265 questions and a trainwreck of stress

    Also would Highly recommend people to watch the videos before taking the question trainers, i didnt watch the videos until after the tests so my scores are somewhat skewed due to some being repeated questions
