    I took my test yesterday, no official results yet, but I did get the "good" pop up. I think NCSBN questions were pretty close to NCLEX. I also did Saunders and Silvestri. I think the most helpful thing though is learning how to answer the questions using the Maslow/ABC rule. There were so many things I felt I didn't know, but I kept reminding myself that I'm competent enough to be a nurse. What is the best/worst thing that could happen is a good way to answer questions too.

    I get 80's and up, BUT... We had to do that As a requirement to graduate from my school. So I've done about all of the questions including the test bank ones, we had a class our last term dedicated to those tests and Saunders and Silvestri. So I just continued until I took my exam

    That's good and it paid off. We had ATI thru my school. I'm studying at moment exam cram ...kind place to place I hope that's not bad but I want to do as many questions as I can. What was your average # of questions per day? How many hours did you study in a day, too?
    Oh and how many months did it take to do NCLEX from last day of school? I know ppl say do it with 80 days from last day of nursing school.

    We did Hesi, that was a part of passing that class as well. I did tons of questions a day. I mean I always studied. I woke up at 8, cleaned my room fed youngest read to him. Studying by 11 (questions and review books) put my son to nap at 1 or 2, studied til 4 or 5, dinner. The evening was family time. I graduated 6/15 took my test 7/28 so not too bad. My friends who graduated in April only waited 3 weeks. I think summer just takes longer.
