I just graduated on December 12th 2012. I received my ATT on the 28th of Dec and scheduled my NCLEX-RN for today Jan 3, 2013. From the moment I graduated I began studying (for about 20 days) and I... Read More

    I bombed most of the Kaplan SATA ?'s They are so much simpler on the NCLEX. As long as you understand the content in the SATA ?'s I wouldn't worry too much about them. I even did the multiple format practice questions and did horribly the day before the Nclex. BUT I didn't let that bother me. I heard that they were easier on the NCLEX here on allnurses.

    I understand how you feel about feeling like you are getting worse...part of me believes that the question trainers are designed that way. See how you do on 6 or 7. Your diagnostic and readiness scores are great! I think you are ready but if you must..,do qt6 or 7 for a boost of confidence!

    Good Luck You Got This!!!
    Just took QT6: 74.5%

    WOW that made me feel tons better!!!...if the NCLEX is just like QT6 I feel a bit more relieved!!! =)
    Thank you again for the kind words!

    Ok so I have just completed the first QT's and I'm not feeling so confident, I didn't use the strategy on the 1st QT or QT2 but tried to use it on QT3, I'm praying that I get better at this and not worst!
    diagnostic test-67%
    QT1-71%
    QT2-69%
    Q3-59% (OMG some one shoot me!!)

    Your scores look great! I did the worst on QT3 also. I think the nclex is most like QT6 and QT7 though so I would at least take one of them. Literally felt like I was taking another kaplan test during the exam. One thing kaplan didnt really go over was ecgs and I recommend being familiar with the basic rhythms. I used hurst and they had a worksheet with like 6 basic rhythms and that study guide floating around this site had a list of meds to give...super helpful. I don't think you need to know anything too deep though about ecgs just the basics!!! I thought the exam was hard, but I thought kaplan was challenging. Anyhow, I got the good pop up with PVT so hoping I passed!
