took nclex 7/29/13

  1. 2 Phew! Just finished taking NCLEX RN. Finished at 170 something questions. When the computer stopprd I was in shock. Walked to my car, still in shock. I had no idea how I did through out the test. Usually people say they can tell when they're doing bad etc, but I felt like my questions stayed the same difficulty level throughout the test, which worried me a lot. I was preparing to go to 265. I felt very comfortable taking the test, I was familiar with a lot of the questions (thanks to kaplan and hurst). Lots of conference questions and alternative type questions. I'm so relieved it's over with though. I couldn't help but try the pvt, and so far have the good pop up. Crossing my fingers that I see my name on ca bon site. Thank you all for the support, tips and reassurance! time to relax

    I would occasionally get 2 satas in a row followed by a priority questions, but I would say that I had at least 10 no more than 15. Overall, maybe 20 alternative type questions

    My kaplan test scores were mid 50s to 60s. You seem like you're on the right track. It really helps to do a lot of questions, I could sat through 165 questions before I needed a break! After my break I had 10 more questions and the computer shut off(:

    I felt like I did better earlier in the Kaplan test near the end I got a lot wrong, I think cause I didn't take a break it took me 2 and a half hrs..

    Congrats J. so do you think Kaplan and nclex are similar or is Kaplan is harder than NCLEX?

    How did you do on your Hurst review questions? My scores were between 82-91 (not percents, but out of 125) . Also, are the hurst questions as difficult as NCLEX?

    Congrat's on passing! I can't wait to be in ur position!
