NCSBN 5 week course review extlearning

  1. Hi! Did anyone do the NCSBN extlearning review online? What were your scores? I know NCSBN wants you to have 75% on each lesson. Are you reviewing all the materials before taking the post exam? If you completed a lesson, did you go back to retake lesson to improve your score? Did answers change or were they same ones? Did you think NCSBN were similar to NCLEX style questions? How many lessons did you do in a day since its only 20 q's but a bunch of material to review?

    P.S. Is there SATA in NCSBN anywhere on the lesson plan?

    Any suggestion....thank you! Sorry for so many questions here.

    hi assess&safety 1st,

    i am waiting for my att next week. i did not pass my first time. and, i am so stressed about the 2nd time. i want to pass it soo baad.
    yeah i took kaplan before i took nclex the 1st time. it works for some people but didn't work for me because i didn't discipline myself enough. and i don't really like how the kaplan book is organized. after i found out i failed the 1st time.

    this time i used lacharity and i finished it. and, i signed up to ncsbn ext. learning (5 wks). i love ncsbn, i really think those questions remind me of the nclex.
    i scored in pretest: 66%
    lesson 1 management of care: 75%
    lesson 2 infection control: 1st 65% then 2nd 95%
    lesson 3 health promotion and maintenance: 60% i will do it again

    i would like to post my review here! i am trying to stay positive with everything i do but it seems like my life is becoming harder and harder every day which makes it more interesting and challenging!
    i need to your supporting comments : )

    I had 3 to 2 SATA in each quiz. It's like the NCLEX. Ask the system about it.

    Hi guys,
    How is your studying?!

    Lesson 4- Psychosocial Integrity/ 1st: 50% 2nd: 85%
    It was very difficult and confusing

    I am also trying to keep my mind away from negative thoughts. And, I found the solution to get rid of it. Two steps:
    1- Flee
    Don’t pay attention to negative thoughts and don’t argue with them. Just flee and run away! Leave all those negative thoughts and go.
    2- Fill :spin:
    Fill your mind with positive thoughts. This is one reason why having a quote of the day is a good thing.

    So, my quote of the day:
    "When obstacles arise, you change your direction to reach your goal; you
    do not change your decision to get there."
    -Zig Ziglar

    See ya!

    futurelpn2012,[FONT=century gothic] in Saunders book what content are you reviewing? Or are you doing CD?

    [FONT=century gothic]Lesson 7 - Reduction of Risk Potential is my worst %[FONT=century gothic]. I think that's my weak area. I am so embarrassed to even posted the % and I took it twice, too.

    [FONT=century gothic]Lesson 5 - Basic Care and Comfort 60%[FONT=century gothic], I keep getting 60's each time. I have taken the Lesson 5 - Basic Care and Comfort 60%, twice now and same 60%.

    [FONT=century gothic]I'm currently working on Self-check Practice Questions Bank 2 Various Topic ....

    Question[FONT=century gothic]: to can I improve my score % for Reduction of Risk Potential and Basic Care and Comfort?
    [FONT=century gothic]What should I review? Not sure if it is content area or what? Sorry....that's why I am asking. Thank you in advance.

    i'm also doing the 5-week ncsbn review. my scores are as follows:

    diagnostic pre-test - 61%
    [color=#004578][color=#004578][color=#004578]management of care - 70%
    [color=#004578][color=#004578][color=#004578]safety and infection control - 85% (when i took nclex rn in 2010, i was above passing in this area)
    [color=#004578][color=#004578][color=#004578]health promotion and maintenance - 72%

    there's a lot of reading to be done with ncsbn...just like going through saunders from cover to cover. my brain is on information overload at this moment.

    well, back to ncsbn

    Lesson 5: Basic care & Comfort / 1st: 55% 2nd: 80%
    I am so tired

    You will be fine. Do not worry! << non-therapeutic communication
    Just stay focused on studying review before answering the questions and make some notes.

    Me too. I am reading through Saunders but most of the time I am doing NCSBN.

    Good luck all :heartbeat
