Kaplan review people, how were your scores on the diagnostic, readiness, other tests that you did along the way in the program? I want to know how your scores corresponded with success on the real NCLEX test.

I can't remember my exact numbers. I posted them here before. I know for the readiness, I didn't get the golden 65%. I believe I got a 59. I passed nclex on my 1st attempt with 75 questions. Don't get too hung up on the scores. If you follow their program, you should be fine. If you feel ready, more than likely you are.
In truth, I felt more ready prior to taking Kaplan than I do now! That may sound crazy, but it's true. Just waiting for my ATT to arrive and I'm gonna get scheduled ASAP since I feel like I'm forgetting more info by the day.
I haven't done any trainers since last week so I think I'll give one a shot this a.m. while it's quiet at home and see how that goes.
Well, I failed my first try in NCLEX. Alot of factors came into play. 1. I was stagnant for a year and a half. 2. I only reviewed for two weeks with CD roms of Saunders and Lippincott. I scored pretty well on them, but they were content areas, not generally the higher level of questions.
So I failed with 75 questions. It may mean I failed so BAD or it can mean I just wasn't able to answer the higher level of questions. It's all hypothetical. So I enrolled myself to Kaplan's RN program from international graduates.
Okay, the first thing I did was answered their Q trainer 1-3 as indicated. I scored a 57,63, and a 68. Pretty bad but if you compare it to the 60-65 percent they want from you, its SO-SO. I also noticed that I never got more than 4 questions wrong. It was pretty much leveled. Then I took my Diagnostic exam, then I got a 58. I tried their qbank 'cause I heard it has real nclex type questions. I have taken about 8 already and I'm scoring 52-58 mostly, though I got a 62. It's frustrating. But you have to practice. Reach for that 65% goal. With Saunders and Lippincott, I would score very high. I still haven't found the time to read thru their books though
can anyone pass with 60% on diagnostic? my qt7 is my lowest 54. i was just wanting to finish it. any advice?
Diagnostic exam or do you mean the readiness exam? Try aiming for 60 and above. Diagnostic exam just determines your weakest areas. But if you get a 57 percent on the readiness for nclex exam, then maybe try and do a few more practice questions. Just to be sure
60 on readiness. 54 on qt7 and 58 on qt6. other than that all of it is above 60. except for qbanks so is it good?? i doubt that i can study more..or retain more info... (
The aim is to have atleast a 60 on the readiness. 65 is better. When is your exam? If it's in a week, they say double up the number of practice questions. It's really difficult to score above 60 on the questionbank 'cause it's only 50 questions, but do it over and over. Try doing the questions you got wrong over.
