I just took my Texas NCLEX PN last Wed 06/21/17 and did the PVT the following day and got the same message ... "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time." I cannot figure out this PVT at first because there's a lot of videos and stories about it. I passed, got my results after paying Quick Results fee at exactly 48 hrs after the exam.
There was a lady on YouTube who said do not give the correct expiry date of the credit card for safety purposes.
UWorld simulates the material for NCLEX as far as I know. They are up-to-date with the multiple choice questions, SATA/multiple response questions, drag and drop, HotSpots. I got 64% and 71% on my 2 assessment predictors. I also used Hurst, plus ATI which we used at school.
The key to NCLEX is know your content - Fundamentals, Pharmacology, MedSurg, Mental Health, Maternal-Newborn, Care of Children/Pedi, Leadership /Management. Of course, infection control will always be there and Pharmacology. I got a lot of SATA questions from the very beginning, one after the other, probably around 25-35 questions and multiple choice questions, and 1 Dosage Calculation. I thought to myself, OMG, this is like UWorld practice where I only got 55%-64% for every 85 set of practice questions. After 1 hr, I was at question 45. I looked again and I was at question 70, and then I didnt look again. The computer shut down probably in the 80s or 90s.
Expect the worse in NCLEX RN or PN. If you get the easy question, you are lucky.
Good luck to all.
