I took the NCLEX in May 2010 after graduating and failed it because I barely studied. Now, a few years later, I thought I would give it another try and studied a bunch of review books but I failed the test again and found that it was too much information all at once. I scheduled the exam for 45 days later and did all the questions of NCLEX 3500, the study guide posted here: http://allnurses.com/nclex-discussio...ex-750555.html
, and made sure I knew my labs and infection control..and passed this last time! If you have been out of school for a few years like me, this may work for you! Good luck to all who are testing and I wish you the best!
