Passed With 75!

  1. Hi All,

    I have not been on this website for awhile because of studying and other family distractors, but I took NCLEX-RN on Wednesday 12/27. I was searching through this section for two days trying to go on different experiences that other people had. I tell you, this test is unlike any test I have ever taken. The computer shut off at 75 and I thought for sure I failed. The reason why is because I got 15 check all that apply questions. Every time I answered a multiple choice question, a check all that apply question appeared. I was making little noises in the testing room trying not to be too loud and trying to stop myself from throwing the computer out the window. I also got alot of infection control and priority questions. I tortured myself and did nothing but wallow in my misery for two days. It was the most awful feeling ever. But I checked this morning and saw that I passed.

    It can be done. I am the worst standardized test taker in the world, but if I can do it, so can every one else. Never give up. Good luck to everyone who is about to face the NCLEX!!!!

    Congratulations! I also took the nclex (nclex-pn) on the 27th and found out today that I passed. I still can't believe it. Like you, I also had a lot of check all that apply questions (my test stopped at 85 and I had 10 check all that apply).

    Congratulations again!

    Congrats Lashawn!

    I had a lot of select all that apply but not as many as you. Did you get two in a row at times? When that happened I wanted to walk out of the test and never look back. Instead I composed myself and trudged on. Best of luck to you as you start our new career.

    Around the 10th question I got two in a row, after that it seemed as if when I answered maybe every third or fourth multiple choice question, I would get one of those dreadful check all that apply.

    Thank you for the congratulations !!!!!!

    I just used the Saunders book. I did all the questions in the book and then did all the questions on the CD. I also took Kaplan but I don't think I was using any of their strategies unless I was doing it unconsciously. I just read the question two times and then the answers two times eliminating the ones I knew weren't right at all and made an educated guess. Seemed as if I was doing that for all of them. It took me 1 hr to do 75 questions, that is why I don't think I was using the strategies. It worked for me. Saunders is all you need. I did the first tip of Suzanne's plan but I could not get the study guide because she says you need a full 6 weeks to do her study guide and I was taking NCLEX too soon. So that was all I did.

    congratulations i had like 5 innovative questions when i took my 75 item exam..i think the more u get those type of questions the harder ur questions are getting so the more likely that you would pass NCLEX-RN

    happy new year and God bless to all of u

    I also had 10-15 select all that apply on my 75 question test. A friend that I tested with, same center and time, had 2. She also had 75 questions and we both passed. I find those to be the hardest questions so my strategy was to check everything I wasn't sure was wrong. I do wonder if these were "test" questions...................
