I just past my exam and it stopped at 85 questions in 2hrs with a 5 min break. I was shocked and felt like I have missed most of the questions and I had a lot of SATA..
Well, from what I heard having SATA is a good thing. Anyways, I felt horrible for the next two days. I couldn't sleep because I was too nervous about my result.
I know I should of stay positive but in the past I suck at taking exams.
I am so thankful that I am officially an LPN.
How I did it:
I dedicated 60 days and study from KAPLAN anywhere class/ questions, Saunders PN Comprehensive review and Mosby PN comprehensive. It is pretty expensive but it is all worth it especially KAPLAN $399.
Study blue flash cards online helps as well.
We must know our lab values and nutrition. With the Nclex is all random q's so we would never know whats going to be asked.
Don't worry we all may not know it all but it is definitely the way we answer the questions. Read it and make sense of it, then eliminate the wrong answers, use ABC's, Assessments Vs Implementation... Make sure you evaluate each answers.
Each day I would do at least 50 question so about 3000 questions total. Aim for at least 65-70% on each test. Make room for at least 3-4 hrs of studying a day.
Relax the day before the exam and eat a good breakfast that morning and bring a water bottle.
I hope this help and I wish everyone the best of luck!
