    Don't give up! What is the name of the review? I've never heard of a review costing 6k. Have you considered Hurst or Remar review

    I took the sylvia rayfield review and it was good. I know people who did the hurst review as well. I think HESI is a good resource to study. I think the best think is whatever review book you use, take the tests that are on the CD that come with it. Read all of the rationales. Each day do as many questions as you can and read the rationales, then review your areas of weakness. What was your school's nclex pass rate? How many hours a day do you usually study and how do you study?

    I used the Kaplan Strategies, Practices, & Review 2010-2011 edition when I tested in 2010. For me, I only used ONE source and learned that ONE source inside and out. I read this book from cover to cover twice. But on the second read, I took my time and really thought about each answer, correct and incorrect, until I understood why the answer was or was not chosen. My reason for using only one source is because I didn't want to confuse myself with the 'one book said this while another said that' issue. But I will admit that I spent a small fortune on study materials like NCLEX 3500 & 4000, Saunders NCLEX, etc., but I either gave them away or got refunds for all accept the Kaplan. Whatever you use, just make sure that you know WHY you made your choice and spend a few moments acknowledging why you DIDN'T choose any of the other choices to make sure you feel without a doubt or with minimal doubt that you selected the best answer. Good luck on your next attempt.

    If you are willing to study, I am game. I live in NJ but we can skype. I need a study partner, cause I am so not focused and I'm reading and reading and cannot remember anything. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks

    RNewbie- I graduated from the Philippines so as much I remember only 3 among our batch took NCLEX and nobody got it on their 1st try. I study about 4hrs a day of questionnaire and 1-2hrs reading. I have to recall everything 'coz I've been out of school for almost 2yrs.

    LYNDAA-thank you I'll keep that on mind

    torresm13- hmmmm...sounds good! we're both on the same track, I read then after I jump into the next topic I can't recall the previous one. Do you think it would be better if we study on a library or like panera...lol..I used to do it at home but I feel so comfy...

    Give at least 6 months for CVS as a lot will depend on how quickly or timely CGFNS receive back your documents
