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!
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
