    Thank you! I took Hurst live review(Good for content review and easy to understand). Other materials I used are Nclex 4000 (I did 75 questions/day and study the rationales), Saunders Comprehensive Review book(it's a thick book so i just studied the chapter that needs recalling), PDA by LaCharity(great for prioritization), Kaplan Q trainers, Mosby's Pharmacology Memory NoteCards, Memory Notebook of Nursing, 50 pages Study guide.

    Study tip: I set a schedule for review and stick to it. Like, Monday: Do Nclex 4000 questions, Tuesday: Study Rationales, Wednesday: Hurst Video Online and so on.. I mix them up so I don't get bored.

    @westcoast: Congrats! I'm from NJ, I don't intend to work in Cali but they're one of the states that are lenient to non local board passers back then. Now, they have more requirements and they want me to go back to school. I just moved to Texas and I'm planning to endorse my license here. Do you have plans to take your RN license? I say apply at different state and just endorse it.

    I see. Uhmm Im planning to apply for another state for nclex rn.. But im not planning to move in other state coz all my family are here in cali. So after i become RN in other state thats the time im going to school and fullfill my deficiency here in cali maybe in that case CA will accept my RN endorsement. Im not sure in this strategy but for now im looking forward to work as lvn here in cali.

    It will not work getting any out-of-state RN license then try to endorse into CA, as the CA BON will always request for your school transcripts and that's where those trying to get passed the concurrency rules gets denied.

    If you're planning to move out of state, then, do what one poster did (SoCalNurse88) and some of Lyly's friends did to get their ATT in CA in about a little over 1 year's time: You can read their SUCCESS story, CLICK here: http://allnurses.com/world-nursing/r...ia-832461.html

    SoCalNurse88 is soon to take her NCLEX-RN in CA soon, best of luck to her!

    Here's Lyly's friends situation to become CA RN's for recent PH grads: http://allnurses.com/general-nursing...ng-831332.html Look for the mention of her friends on how to get the ATT approval in CA.
