passed NCLEX! If I did it, you guys can do it too! :)

    hello, fellow nursing students and nurses!!
    I just found out that I passed NCLEX with 85 questions on my first try and can I say A---MEN?
    by the way, the pearson vue trick worked for me.
    I took it yesterday at 2pm and my state's board of nursing already has the result out.
    I am writing this post to let those people who don't have 'perfect scores' (as in >60-65%) on their kaplan exams know that they absolutely, surely can pass NCLEX too!

    diagnostic: 53.9%
    readiness: 53.9% (my kaplan class somehow made us take this exam after diagnostic and I think it should be the last one?)
    Q Trainer 1: 46.7%
    Q Trainer 2: 56%
    Q Trainer 3: 52%
    Q Trainer 4: 54.7%
    Q Trainer 5: 60.7%
    Q Trainer 6: 64%
    Q Trainer 7: 55.5%

    yes, I know. The scores are not good at all.
    however, I took a lot (A LOT) of questions from q banks and read all the rationales and tried to understand instead of memorizing the answers.
    I personally thought NCLEX was harder than Kaplan just becuase I had 15ish SATAs.
    Kaplan is all I studied. Everyone is different so try to find what works the best for you!

    I wish all of you the best of luck!!!
    If you ever get discouraged about your scores, come look at mine again and feel better! haha

    Congratulations! This is very encouraging as I did the Q-trainer and my readiness test was 57.6% back in December when I took it and I just wanted to cry. I take it July 1st. My scores don't seem to be going up much at all! But I'm trying....
