- 2Nov 6, '12 by kh321I took the Ati RN predictor twice. The first time I had a 40% chance of passing the NCLEX-RN. I had 5 weeks left until graduation. I did so many questions and retook the predictor. My second time the results were much better. I got a 91% chance of passing the NCLEX-RN the first time. I continued doing questions and passed the NCLEX-RN in July on my first attempt. The predictor let me see my weak areas which helped me focus when I was doing questions.

With the actual test they don't really calculate a percentage there is just a passing line and if you can answer the questions above the passing line correctly then you are good. My understanding is that if you get a lot of "check all that apply" questions you are doing well on the test because those are the hardest to answer.
I am using the Kaplan and Saunders books to study and they are both really awesome. I chose not to pay the $500 for the Kaplan course because A) I don't have $500 to spare and B) I tend to test really well in general and don't suffer from huge test anxiety. Not that I won'r be nervous heading in but generally once i get past the first few questions I can settle down and focus and push the anxiety away.
It's AFTER the test is over that I worry and panic about how I did LOL
