To study or not to study????

    Has anyone ever attempted the NCLEX without studying? What was your outcome? I'm a REALLY good test taker. I also retain info really well. I am debating not studying and seeing how it goes. Worst case scenario is that I have to take it again, right?

    Are you serious? You want to risk failing and wasting $400 on an attempt w/o studying? You'll have to pay another 400 to retake it I hope you know. Idk why you'd attempt the NCLEX without studying. Not smart.

    My friend took her boards straight out of nursing school and did not study a thing and passed at 85 questions, Maybe take a couple practice tests and see how you do and go for it

    I wouldn't say NOT studying.. I would say not review content. I would just do Nclex questions/ practice tests . there's no point in going over content if you already know it. I graduated last august but didn't get my paperwork till February of this year. I didn't go over content just did comp tests. took the test OCT 4th and got the good pop up.

    I believe it's only 200$ to retake an exam. 200$ to register with Pearson Vue when you send your paperwork & then 200$ to take the test. As long as your still in the time frame of your ATT it's only 200$ to retake your exam. if your ATT expires then you have to re-register, & pay the registration fee as well as the exam fee.

    I feel like we are exactly the same.

    I didn't study during nursing school and I had no problem.

    I didn't study for nclex and passed at 75 questions in under an hour.

    The day of the test I did do a couple hundred practice questions.

    I honestly believe that most of the people who fail are people who studied way too much and confused themselves.

    That's still 200 dollars you waste imo.

    TRUE. I'm NOT for wasting money. which is why I said she should at least do some Comprehension tests. I reviewed well over 5,000 questions and rationales as well as the AN 35 page study guide. I did not review book content but I did do ALOT of questions to cover my butt. I did not want to retake. I studied 6days a wk 6-8hrs a day for 5weeks, sooo glad that's over lol

    What scores did you get on your exit exam? For me, mine was 98% chance of passing, and I could have gone without studying. I studied hard though. So If you scored very high on your exit exam I would say go for it. Take Kaplan test 7, it's a free download, and see what score you get. If you get above 65 you are good to go.

    Yea, how did your exit exam go? I scored 1150 on exit hesi. Didn't study for that at all either. So hopefully that will help you gauge where you are.
