Second time and I got the good pop up!!!

  1. I passed today! It's the best feeling in the world!! I just want to tell all of you that everyone can do this. I failed my first time, and I thought I would die!! A friend of mine who also failed pulled me out of my depressed hole and told me that we are going to do this together and pass together ...and we did!!! We took a class called "ready to pass". It was so helpful. We also did Hursts together. We listened to the lectures in Hursts twice!! That really helped!! The test was hard, and I wasn't 100% sure about any of the answers... But I studied hard. Listen, I probably did at the most 500 practice questions in a month. Core content is the best way to study. I recommend Hursts!!!! I loved it.

    "Ready to pass"is a class. You can goggle it. It's a review of everything, and it's core content based! It was a very good course, taught by very knowledgeable nurses.

    Congrats on passing! What do you mean by core content based? Is it the different diseases or what?

    What I mean is that "ready to pass" doesn't focus on practice questions. It focuses on learning the material correctly so you will choose the right answer on the exam. Even if you don't take that class, it's the best way to study in my opinion. I did about 2000 Kaplan questions before failing my first exam. I don't think a person can really learn by doing practice questions and reading rationales. In nursing school we are preparing for the exams only... and we forget whats important once the exam is over. Yes, you can read a rationale and learn from your mistake, but you will never see that question again on NCLEX.
