Please Help... I have failed 2X

  1. Well, I have searched, but the only thing that im really seeing is that I should use Kaplan or Mosby or another one of those review books, the problem is I am flat broke.. So far I have paid $620 To test (failed twice) now im getting ready to send in another $310 I work at Dominos and I dont make that much money, I have a Lippincott and a Cram Exam book.. If there is anyone Near Jellico (hour north of Knoxville, TN) that would be willing to let me use there books I would Appreciate it SO MUCH.. I am open to study tips as well..
    Thanks in Advance
    -David

I highly suggest a nice hot bath the night before wash down some gravol to help u sleep.. I know this sounds strange but all the students I know failed used this trick and were successfull.. I opted for a massage the day before also..

    Hey Dave,

    I googled it and it appears to be dimenhydrinate, it's an antiemetic which sounds really close to phenergan here in the states. It's in Canada.

    Just for me, if I took something close to Phenergan I'd be out for a long time, and absolutely of no use to anyone for 2 days. I personally wouldn't want to take something like that the day before something like the NCLEX.

    Sorry I can't be of more help to you with your other questions. Best of luck to you, and you WILL pass that NCLEX.

    My only suggestion is to get a copy of the Saunder's Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-PN and begin by reviewing the sections that were never covered for you in school. Then begin by doing the questions, only 100 per day, and review the rationale behind each and every answer, both correct and incorrect.

    You can be an "A" student in school and still have troubles getting thru NCLEX. It is an exam all in its own, and you have to understand what they are looking for in the answer.

    Start with that, and then see how it goes. Things should start making more sense for you. Not sure what you used originally.
