Feb 18, '07Quote from Julie, RN2 weeks of "real" studying for about 3 hours a day (just questions, never bothered to study content). Honestly, I feel like had I studied any more it wouldn't have mattered. I passed in 82 questions. My friend who studied for 2 months like a lunatic passed in 75 questions. In the end, we both were *positive* we failed (just like almost everyone else who posts). Then wah-la....we passed. Go figure.I am just curious.....
How long did other nurses study before taking the NCLEX?
And did you feel your studying was beneficial?
Feb 22, '07I have a question: which book is more suitable for the first semester nursing students? I have problem with critical thinking, and would like to buy practice exam books that cover on those. Can anyone help me?
Feb 22, '07Hi! I used NSNA, Saunders, Lipincott and other local reviewers. I was also preparing for CGFNS exam at the same time and it took me almost a year in my review center also attending live lectures and listening to some audios our review center has. After my CGFNS exam, I didn't really studied that hard already in preparation for my NCLEX which is like 2 months after. But I did, practice test taking of 265 questions.
Just read and read and do practice tests. Always prioritize Safety, ABCs and Maslow's. Never delegate assessments, planning, and evaluation to an unlicensed nurse.
