I am sorry if this has been posted 100 times. I am due to take NCLEX Friday afternoon, so I need to make a decision by tomorrow morning whether to reschedule. I have taken HURST in January and in May, but honestly feel like I haven't retained much of anything from school or Hurst LOL I have taken numerous practice tests from NCLEX 4000, Hurst, and others. I am getting around 70% on these practice tests. I took Kaplan's readiness test tonight and got a 61 (I don't worry too much about this one because Kaplan said I would fail the GRE with a 750 and I got an 1130). I have not had the time to study that I would have liked (or thought I was going to have) and just not sure whether to reschedule. I started my RN job this Monday and if I don't pass, I have to go back to a tech, plus all the expenses of retaking. However, the only other spot open is June 6 and I have a lot going on between now and then between the new job and my daughter's graduation that is June 3. I'm just not sure if the extra time will really give me extra time to study.
My problem is that I don't know how these practice exams stack up to the real thing. It is comparing apples to oranges because none of them are adaptive like the NCLEX nor give the same picture. Should I hold out another week and get what additional studying I can in or is the 70-75% I'm getting enough to pass?
Any thoughts/advice, etc would be great.
