    I would like to join your group. I am waiting on my ATT, I graduated on Aug 3rd; so prayerfully it will be here within the next two weeks and I will be able to test in the month of September. I am using Kaplan Pn, Saunders, Exam Cram, the 35pg study guide floating around and I am thinking about purchasing the 3wk course from NCSBN.

    I am waiting for my eligibility from my board.It will take 2-3 weeks probably.I have finished PDA, Kaplan strategy book and hurst review.I am working on Saunders now and combining Kaplan course book.Content is my focus,not doing any questions for now but I am gonna start a habit of doing minimum 50 and maximum 150 every day.I truly believe that it doesn't matter how many hours you have studied or from how many months you've been practicing for this test.what matters is how you are studying? is it working for you?Everyone has their own studying styles.So just find what works for you.

    Good luck to all of us.Never question yourself.Just believe we CAN and we WILL..

    I did Hurst and I loved it. I am looking to do another review. It's a bit pricey but well worth it. I used the Hurst review book to study for my LPN and passed the 1st time (by the grace of God). Good luck!

    Hi, i'm scheduled to take the test on september 10. I just want to get it over with. I have been studying for months already and delaying the test just doesn't do any good because i feel like i'm loosing what i have learned couple of months ago. Although i want to get it over with but i will of course be devastated if i fail because i'm doing good with kaplan based on my scores. But it really depends on how you're gonna do the test right? Oh well, let's wait and see. I just can't wait to sleep for one week straight after the test. Goodluck to all of us sept. takers.
