Taking NCLEX 3rd time....pls help!

  1. Hi! I took NCLEX two times already and need some tip on how to prepare for the third time. I plan to take the test on Dec 28. I want to follow Suzzane's plan this time. Those of you who tried this plan, how helpful was it? Please let me know what can I do to make this my third and last test taking round. I have two little kids and I really need to start working. I graduated last year, and not being able to work for this long is really eating me up and I am very frustrated and you can say I am devastated.

    I used her plan and I took it a 3X and just found out I passed using Suzanne plan only it was the best. Just follow as instructed. Check out the sticky at the top of the thread New revised first tip Suzane plan. Just focus on reading and understanding every rationale whether it was right or wrong. Matilda50 RN

    I just passed my NCLEX after two previous attempts - the only thing that helped was an online review class given by Ready To Pass (www.readytopass.com). I also contacted them and got individual tutoring over the phone which put me on the right path. But keep in mind, the only thing that will get you to pass is you....STUDY, STUDY some more and STUDY even more!! Good luck!!

    Thanks! No matter how much I study, I am getting nervous this time especially after failing 2X. I didn't know about readytopass.com, I will look into it. I will contact Suzzane too.

    Hi CUNurse2b

    I am taking my test for the 3rd time next month and I had those same feeling until I began using the Suzanne's plan. Gaining more knowledge made me feel better and learning how to apply it to the q's will build confidence. No negativeness

    Suzzanes's plan is no more available. Why not go over your content and understand the disease process. I have a suggestion for you.

    NCLEX ABCDZ STRATEGY

    A. Spend 1/3 of your time reviewing content you don't understand
    B. Spend 2/3 of your time answering test question
    C. Used most comfortable NCLEX review book for content.
    D. Begin with the area that is most difficult for you or area that are least familiar
    E. Use a good nursing reference manual or internet to find information
    F. Define the disease in terms of pathophysiological process and understand the disease process.
    G. Identify the early and late symptoms of disease
    H. Identify most important or life-threatening complication associated with the disease.
    I. Define the medical treatment.
    J. Identify nursing intervention associate with early and late symptom of disease process
    K. Identify what to teach patient and family to prevent in other to adapt to disease process.
    L. list the area you need to review.
    M. Answering question in a test mode will improve your test taking skills
    N. Each time you answer question, check the number of question you answered correctly that will motivate you to read and study more next time.
    O. Keep track of your score to see how you're improving in all area of your content.
    P. If you answer less than 65% correctly, these is a WARNING SIGNAL!! Spend lots of time reviewing content and stop doing question on the weakest area
    Q. If you answer 65-75% correctly your performance is improving and success is certain. Continue working with the content until your score is above 75%
    R. Every wrong answer, identify why you answered it wrongly.
    S. Practice 75- 85 question to known how you'll be prepared for NCLEX Exam and see how many you answered correctly
    T. Do understand the question first, formulate your answer of hand and compare with the option given to see how close your answer!!
    U. Anticipate Test question will increase in difficulty when you get the first question right!!
    V. Do not panic if someone finishes before you!!
    W. Do not CRAM CRAM!!
    X. Remember that you have learned a great amount of nursing knowledge and the exam is only designed to determine whether you're able to practice safely @ entry level
    Y. Keep a positive attitude and Pray!!
    Z. Wish you all best of LUCK
