I took the NCLEX exam (redundant haha) last feb. 18,2012 at 8 am here in hawaii. I did only kaplan videos and nclex 3500 set in review mode. I started 8:30 am and finishing it at 10:03 am so about an hour and half.... shut off at 75th question with 10 SATAs and 2 drag and drop ,these i know were high level questions... 15 med questions... i think.. and 80 % prioritization questions (so tough) hehe.. did the pvt at 11am with delivery successful and had the GOOD POP UP (our records..etc). And i'm so scared that i'll be the 1 % of all nurses to fail but i am sure that God is good. I am claiming that i really did passed my nclex.. need to be positive to relieve my anxiety... Godbless to all my fellow nurses... (having my glass of cold wheat grass juice now with honey syrup (yummy) while doing my post hehe)

HellO! I had similar experiences as yours. I also had a lot of sata. I started getting sata after the 3rd questions. I also had 1 drag and drop, about 2 pictures that required lots of thinking lol (it wasnt like ok name this. I actually had to think about it), sooo many random meds, sooo many priority and safety questions. I was just glad that I Know I got the priority and drag and drop questions right. However I gave up with most of the meds. I was like wth. I couldnt even use my trick with using prefixes or suffixes. At least, I know that I got ob, psych, safety questions right. I did feel like crap when I came out but I knew that I answered my last question correctly. My computer shut off at 75 question too. I hope and pray that pearson trick works cuz it really relieved me so much stress!
