    Hi guys!

    I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico in 2011 with a BSN, Yep! a whole year and next month I will finally take the NCLEX, it's been a rough journey applying for liscensure in Tx. It was Rough because I am considered an international applicant. Well, that took me a year and in August I got my ATT I was happy and so excited when that email arrived, but shortly after I was terrified that the ATT mean NCLEX! Well to be honest I've studied here and there but it wasn't a full blown study session(so to me it doesn't count like studying),a few questions here, and there & Read some chapters. Now it's been a year since I've been in a health care environment, I feel like I've forgotten all that I learned in nursin school. So naturally I'm panicking. When I read the practice questions, I panic and answer them wrong, when I read the rationale I'm like "DUH! I knew that, why didn't you read more carefully!?"
    Anyways, here I am exactly one month and a day until I take this behemoth of a test and I need advice, words of encouragement, anything that will alleviate and help towards passing the test.

    study material:
    NCLEX Exam and QB by Linda Stanford (app)
    NCSBN flash cards
    NCLEX REVIEW APP(can't find who made it...maybe not so reliable)
    Mosby's RNtertainment: An NCLEX® Review Board Game
    Prentice Hall's Reviews & Rationales: Comprehensive NCLEX-RN Review

    Thanks guys!

    I test Oct. 9. Trying to resist urges to reschedule. I've been slacking on studying due to prepping for a job interview. Now I have to catch up. Ughhh....

    I am in the same boat citylights, as far as trying to not reschedule. My nerves are taking over.

    Hey, I'm going to take my NCLEX on October 15th under TX too I understand when you said it's a rough journey applying for texas licensure because I am an international applicant too.. I've been studying 'here and there' for about 6 months and then I got my ATT. Now I am really focused and have been studying hard core for 2 months now.. Good luck to us!

    How you doin on lippincott? Im using lippincott's alternative test format and it's hard ;( well, atleast for me ;(
    Hi I'm using Q&A book with cd, i like it , most of it is analyze. questions, 1 of my friend sad it is very helpful and she pass, and another friend sad it is very hard just Kaplan and Saunders is enuf. So I'm ok with the questions it's not too hard for me, for content I suggest Saunders yellow book with cd, and for questions I use Pearson book Ann Hogan, LaCharity, I did Kaplan, by the way Kaplan's questions from Lippincott ! I am going take my exam on October, I'm international nurse ,it's will be 3-rd try, Good luck everyone !!!

    We're all in the same boat, I'm really trying to avoid retaking it again since its been a year since I graduated. But reading questions here and there I don't feel like I'm studying enought

    Citylight and Tiffany I'm in the same boat. We can do this ladies, let us give it our best try and practice 300 questions daily and review as much as we can.
