Hello fellow and future nurses! Before going in to take the NCLEX for the third time, I promised myself that when I passed the beast I would post my experience to encourage and motivate others, as... Read More

    I replied to your pm but I am not sure it went through. Anyway, I also did not finish Saunders going into my second attempt and never looked at it after failing as I knew it didn't help me pass, obviously! I had however used PDA so I simply went back and erased my answers because I knew the questions were challenging and some time had passed so I wouldn't remember the answers. I did not answer the case study questions and I never reviewed the chapters after checking my answers. Like I stated previously NCSBN is good but I thought NCLEX 3500 free edition online was equally helpful. Hope this helps! Most important of all, do not give up and remain confident!

    Ditto, failed the first test on march. Do not be discouraged, you're not alone. Let us study more and more instead of worrying. We can do it. We will do it!

    Hello. Do not lose hope. Make sure you allow yourself time to completely heal failing your first attempt so that you do not allow your frustration to get in the way of studying and passing the second time. I felt very frustrated the second time because I could not understand how I could have failed after studying so hard. Then I realized that it wasn't because I did not know the material, I could not narrow my answers down to the correct choice and always chose the second best answer. So I did as many questions as possible to understand the correct way of choosing the correct answer. Good luck, remain confident and soon you will become an RN!

    I only glanced through the content. Especially if you get the 3 weeks you see that you don't have enough time to answer all the questions available which I think was key to passing the NCLEX. Don't spend too much time with the content because its not the best out there but instead make sure you utilize every single question. Don't worry to much about your scores. I would score in the 40s at times but I just looked at it as a number. Theres no way it could predict how well I was actually going to do on the NCLEX. Do the questions and rationales, that's where you gain the most. Good luck!

    Im very happy for you...Congrats to you!!! I am scheduled to take the nclex on Weds, this will be my third atempt. I am doing a refresher coarse with ATI..I get depressed when I dont reach the benchmark, and want to give up. It is hard for me to really dedicate my self to my studies because I have three small children who make that impossible..Im just going to keep plucking away and praying everyday that i pass on weds.
