    So is it like the NCLEX review 3000 or 3500? that's what I'm currently using.

    no it does not have a predetermined set of questions. it works like the boards meanning if you get a question wright the next one will be at a higher level. if you get the question wrong the next is a easier question. depending on the level of questions consistantly answered determines the amount of question you get. it stops when it is determined your level and gives you the level of questions answered and probibility of passing the boards.

    I just go the website and find out this information on " understanding the test results". Here is the link:

    that's why some of your difficulty level is different, the the % is still 94%.

    this is what i dont get. according to them a difficulty level of .35 or above=99% when i got a score of 0.124 i got a 94%, which makes since on there table. but when i get scores in the 0.491 i still get 94%. only the last couple of tests have been at 99% but the difficulty level was 0.6 or above. o well dosent change the fact my date is coming up o so fast. no worries just means to me i still have some room for improvement.

    NCLEX 3000 by Springfield is a good program too. I did 75 questions twice a day. The rationales are good at explaining. But I also did the Mosby's CAT together as well so I get a good amount of questions from different programs.
