    ] I approach it differently this time around. I contacted my dean from my university and she set me up with a remediated professor. That professor coached me and helped me look at the stem of the questions. She also helped me managed my anxiety, i think that was the key problem that led to me overthinking it. Also, i exercised 3-4 days a week with hot yoga, yoga helped me with my anxiety level. While doing so, i used the ncbsn 5 wk course. I only used 4 weeks of it. I followed the study plan ad much as i could. Im a visual learner so instead of copy pasting the content, i had to write everything out as i studied (the areas i was wrak in, such as meds). So i studied for 4 wks, 5-6 days per week; 3-6 hrs depending how focus i am. If im distracted, i take a long break since its pointless to study when i cant absorb anything. I took mine 2 days after Christmas. Imagine the holiday distractions! Haha. Oh the family and friends, shopping, social gather was a bit distracting, but i stayed focus. Did i take a breAk? Sure. I made sure i take a break fir every hour that i studied. So after an hour, i took a break and went to target for a quick xmas shopping, and i went back to study for another hour, then took a break and had a snack, study fir another hour, than take a break for a shower. Etc. In the past i studied for 6-8 hrs, 4-5 days per wk for 2 months. I didnt repeat it because i had the content down. It was just focusing on the safest answer.... I overthink- my weakness. Whats your weakness? Because everyone works differently. Identify that first. Is it content? Over-think? Rush too much? Etc. My colleagues who i tutored during nursing school all passed on their first try. They all did kaplan, and all of them said they didnt use the strategy that was taught to them. I didnt find it useful at all. :/
