I just found out on January 25th,2016 that I passed my NCLEX-RN the second time with 75 questions!!! I could not have done it without using the UWOLRD question bank as well as the HURST content review!!!!
I graduated from nursing school
in December 2014, did the Kaplan review
and their whole QBANK and really didn't feel confident because their rationales weren't thorough enough. I also felt that I couldn't apply the decision tree to any of the questions. I took my first test in March 2015, got all 265 questions and FAILED! After that I was depressed for the rest of the year.
I then bought HURST because I needed content review and that helped me a ton! I also bought LaCharitys Priority, delegation and Assignment, which is a great book as well.
Then my friend told me about UWORLD. I read the testimonials and thought it was just another question bank site trying to make money. I did the practice questions and was blown away at how thorough the rationales were. Not only did you learn why the right answer was right, but you also learned why the wrong answers were wrong and what situations you would instead see those in.
The questions I got when I would practice were actually harder than the questions I got on my actual NCLEX! When I took my NCLEX I felt like my questions were way too easy and that it was too good to be true. I really thought that I failed, but I found out that I passed!!!!!
I just wanted to let people know who are on the fence about buying the UWOLRD QBANK that this site is amazing!!!!! I stand by this product and have told anyone who's asked me how I passed to use this site!!! You do need to put work in though, as long as you do the questions and read the rationales and understand why you got the answer wrong or right you'll be set!
Good luck to everyone who is studying!!! Just believe that it is possible to PASS, and use UWORLD and Hurst to help set you up for success!!!
