I am running out of energy, patience, brain cells, drive , stick-to-it-ness, did I say energy.? My NCLEX is 4/29. I grad. from a respected tech. college, I was a B student. Took NCLEX 1st in early Feb., got 205 qque's didn't pass. I've studied since mid-Feb. for the second time. I can't find any study partners from my classmates. There's only 4-5 that haven't passed NCLEX yet that I know of.
I took the 75 question Saunders assessment and it gave me a 30 day, @ 60 chap. study schedule. I've done 40 chapters. @800 questions. I know that I need to do 3,000 questions.
I then read on this website that Saunders que's is too easy, read not like the actual NCLEX, that you should use KaPLAN'S which is more like NCLEX. I just scored 59% on the Kaplan practice questions from their Strategies book.
I am really frustrated.!! I'm not sure what my true weaknesses are. The Saunders assessment doesn't tell you what they are.
** Can anybody give me some advice on how to get my Kaplan scores up. I know that I need to practice more questions but I feel that I need to study more content. But Kaplan says that just studying content is not the correct way to study for NCLEX. The Saunders book says the opposite, I believe.
Please advise! I am getting so depreseed. I have 3 young kids and my wife are depending on me.
