Out of curiosity... 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... Read More

    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

    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.

    here's a breakdown of my scores from kaplan. dont laugh they are really bad.. but i passed on my first try

    diagnostic-- 60
    QT 1-- 47
    QT 2-- 52
    QT 3-- 50
    QT 4-- 58
    QT 5-- 55
    QT 6-- 60
    QT 7-- 59
    readiness-- 65
    Qbank overall-- 57

    i personally hated QT 1-3 because they were purely based on content and recall... i freaked out after i got those three scores... so i decided to study my butt off.. listened to the online content videos while taking notes (and listened to the pharm content video twice because i suck at pharm). I started taking QT 4-7 seriously (as you can probably kind of tell from the score improvements...). I would recommend that you take each test seriously (in a quiet environment and tell people not to bother you, sign off aim and other chats, and have snacks next to you, get up for restroom breaks.. dont just try to 'get it over with')... and... last but not least... ALWAYS REVIEW EACH SINGLE QUESTION! whether you got it wrong or right....

    good luck everyone. you can do it i only used kaplan and i loved the online stuff!

    I averaged 59 to 63 on Kaplan tests and Qbank but I passed NCLEX with 75 questions. I do think that Kaplan can really help to prepare you even if you aren't getting the magic numbers.
