I have decided to write a post about tips for the NCLEX through my experience. I took the NCLEX twice. The first time I failed with 263 questions, and the second time, I passed with 75 questions. The First Time I was... Read More

    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.

    thanks for your reply. how's the questions on prep u? is it nclex type questions? Im im dilemma on using hurst or Kaplan again.
    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!

    One of my favorite posts. Thank you so much. Im still waiting for my Att and in the middle of my Kaplan review. I have to admit laziness gets the best of me sometimes. But yeah your post motivates me more to be positive on nclex. I want to get it over with but I have to be well prepared. I want and need to pass it first time. Thank you again, Congrats, and Good luck to your career.
    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.

    HURST Review Services does not focus on every topic, it is very selective. Once again, it is impossible to know everything. For extra information and to cure my curiosity, I used Saunders. For every question topic that I did not know, I made it my mission, to learn more about it. I would look at the pathophysiology, and nursing interventions. I would then practice more questions in that particular area to see if I had a good understanding. If you feel Hurst is not turning out to be a good tool for you, I would explore other options. Everyone learns differently. I hope this was helpful to you, and please, if you have any more questions, let me know. Happy Studying!
