took kaplan, now taking nclex very soon!

  1. Okay, I am so nervous about taking Nclex. I graduated dec. 3rd and took Kaplan dec 18 through the 21. I have been doing the qbank questions on their website, about 100 or more a day. Sometimes I do well, but a lot of times i don't do so well. They say you need to get a 65% on their tests in order to put you in passing range for the Nclex. I am a horrible test taker, I get anxiety so bad and I am so afraid of failing. I am trying to be confident, but I feel like an idiot. Anyone have any advice? I think i'm going to go crazy.....

    Same here.... I kept getting 50-70% on my kaplan questions but passed the NCLEX in '05 with 75 questions......Best of luck!!

    Benadryl really helps level me out if I take it before a test!!!

    Same here. I think the highest on Kaplan that I got in the q-bank was in the 80's.. on the question trainer it was 63 so never made it near 65. Passed my first time with 75 questions. You can do it!

    with kaplan tests i got as high as 50% sometimes little bit more. I did use many nclex books and questions. On Nclex i had many drugs that i have never heard of but at 75 my computer shut down and I PASSED.
    Dont put yourself down. You are ready. Believe me.
