    Thank you for this post. I graduate in December and I'm already nervous and dreading the nclex. I know it will be good and I will succeed. Thanks for the tips and encouragement.

    Thank you for your comment, Nurse2Bee2013. The NCLEX is a scary examination if you make it that way. Once you become familiar with common topics (HURST is a great tool), you will be fine. Practice questions, and reading helps! At one point, I was reading Saunders, but had to stop because I noticed I was memorizing... So, definitely refrain from doing that, lol. Congratulations on almost completing nursing school! And, good luck to you in all your future endeavors, you can do it!

    Thank you for your comment Nathan! You have a lot of time to prepare, just remember to keep studying. It's easy to forget a lot of information if you take a very long hiatus. Practice questions, try to get in the habit of doing a minimum number of questions per day. It will be worth it, I promise! Good luck to you, and please let me know if you have any questions!

    Bkshadow, thank you so much! Just remember to read each question carefully and understand what it is asking you. When you read the choices, refrain from adding in answers, and use the process of elimination. Practice makes perfect! I'm hoping that you get it this time too! Good luck!

    Hi! I took the NCLEX-RN this past July and passed the first time around...by the grace of God! I thought the test questions were a cross between ATI and NCSBN. I actually had 2 questions on my NCLEX test that were verbatim from NCSBN. My college used ATI throughout my program, and I used NCSBN to study for my boards as well... I also did comprehensive tests through Saunders, Exam Cram, and Kaplan...not to mention using a handy little study guide that a kind nurse posted to this site a year or so ago... Hopefully, this information and the materials below will help another soon-to-be RN! Best wishes to all...don't give up! One last tidbit, my friend felt confident to take the NCLEX-RN after she passed the ATI Predictor test, and she rocked her boards soon thereafter

    Hey I'm using Hurst right now. However, I couldn't help but realize that the materials they had presented me with doesn't have everything there is to know about that particular system. For example. I was going over the Cardiac system, but they never mention anything about endocarditis or pericarditis. However while I was doing some practice questions, I realized the question topic was endocarditis. Do you think Hurst is sufficient enough to help me prepare for the NCLEX-RN?

    Hurst gives you the very most important basics. I used Feuer also which was a great combination, but many have just used Hurst. Feuer and Hurst were just great.

    BkShadow, anytime! I liked the questions on PrepU better than the Kaplan questions. They were direct, and to the point, and similar to the NCLEX questions. Kaplan questions were a lot harder, in some ways, longer, but really focuses on critical thinking. Hurst and Kaplan are both amazing tools, but that is your decision to make! Please let me know if you have anymore questions, and good luck!

    Thank you so much Atom2013! I'm glad that you find my post motivational and positive. I'm sure you can pass it the first time. Learn information by doing questions, and study rationales. You can do this, I'm sure of it! Thank you so much.
