    I bought the online review from the NCSBN for just $50 and passed the NCLEX with just 75 questions three weeks ago. I agree that it is a very good review. In fact it was the first review ever made available to nursing students for NCLEX, before all this prep for NCLEX became a big business, according to their website. I did not have money for Kaplan, like some of my classmates, so I bought this and I must say that the value I got far surpassed what I paid for it. I also used the Saunders and Mosbys questions as well which helped me round out my preparation because a friend of mine who took it last year recommended that i study questions from different sources. The only beef i had with the NCSBN questions were with the SATA and Alternative questions, they kinda sucked and I felt were done half-ass. But that only made up like 80 to 100 of the 1200 plus questions. The other questions which were like 1000 questions were very good and I felt were very indicative of what I say on NCLEX. In the end I passed NCLEX with 75 questions and apart from the standard fees paid for licensure and exam i only paid $50 for my NCLEX prep compared to $400 to $500 for Kaplan and i yielded great results, don't ya think ;-)
