    It's funny how fast these threads deteriorate into, "Please PM/email me at ____."

    I wonder it there are Pearson agents on here trying to get people to talk about specific test questions to bust them.

    Sorry to thread jack, but i just wanted to point out a trend that I noticed. Please continue.

    Pearson doesn't write the test. From personal experience I can tell you that when you come out of the test you do not remember specific questions probably because of the stress. All we have are incomplete memories such as, "I had 20 or so SATA questions". We already know there will be a lot of them, every prep book and course tells you that.

    Hi everyone! I have been on such a journey as all of you have been. Today I took my nclex.. 2/11/13. My computer shut down at 92 questions..I sat there for a good minute in disbelief..that is it? It is OVER? I took my LPN boards 2 years ago..shut down at 85. For some reason I couldn't remember the exam being as stressful to prepare as this one was. I did the PVT trick and got this so called "good pop up"..I hope it works..if not I still want to tell everyone/anyone how I studied

    Lacharity~ PRIORITY... who do you see first? This is so important...high level questions are priority! FINISH THIS BOOK! There is NO WAY to tell how nclex will test..if you understand priority...(who is the MOST unstable- not the person that just came back from surgery, not the pt getting discharged, not a person complaining about mild pain- NO! The person with a REAL problem ie., fever, unstable labs, etc.)

    Kaplan~ NOT WORTH IT! The exam is content content and more content. Kaplan is so twisted with the questions..I finished the Kaplan course and it was nothing like the exam. Nclex was very direct..(except the select all that apply) If you need content, and never heard of this program READY TO PASS, it is amazing! I live in NY I'm not sure if it's available anywhere else..It is straight content..if anyone wants any info private message me!

    SO basically just the priority book, and CONTENT. I had no math, about 20 SATA, 3 drag drop..please if you have seen this before PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE look at your infection control..again if you want any info on this private message me!

    I want you all to know that I was not an "A" student. I got mostly B's..I struggled through the LPN program. The RN program was better but to be honest, I had to study A LOT to pull my B grades. My scores on Kaplan were all in the 50's (again, questions were NOT like nclex) -- Some people swear by this program. If you want to just practice questions it's ok..Lippincott I feel is much more like nclex. I would google for WEEKS to look for what was similar to nclex. Please don't waste your time on something that will not help you. Yes nclex is random but if you don't know the content you can't answer the question.

    I still don't have my official results..I hope the pop up works! Any questions don't hesitate to ask. It's still fresh in my mind!
    Can you please email me on additional information I'm not allow to send private message yet my email is talcide12@gmail.com

    See I feel that this post might scare the potential NCLEX takers out there looking for advice. I took the Kaplan course and feel that it definitely was beneficial. The online practice questions and tests were what I focused on. There were some areas I was scoring in weaker than others and for that I reviewed Kaplan's content in said area. The Lacharity book was great, I agree with that and I did complete all the questions but not the case studies. While there is content on the test I feel the NCLEX tested me more on smart decision making and safety/infection control. I would take a course that supplies A LOT of practice questions but definitely encourage all to make sure you read and understand rationales because that's what guides your thinking process. The main purpose of the NCLEX is to test for minimum competency and they do that by evaluating how much you can think/act like a nurse and is not based off how many disease processes you know. My advice is to take the time you need to review questions and RATIONALES, review weak areas, review the basics (safety,infection control, and labs), take your time and believe in yourself. Know while testing that the right answer is in front of you and you have the ability to determine that answer because you've been critically thinking your entire nursing school career. Believe in yourself and know that someone out there (me) believes in you too! Best of luck friends!!!
