    Michelle that is awesome! I'm a student and I won't be taking my NCLEX until early next year, but reading this seriously makes me excited and motivated! I think that's a great idea practicing lab values every night...I definitely need to do that. I've heard that doing the Hurst Review and the Kaplan Review are both beneficial...have you heard anything about that?

    Thank you for sharing this! Today was a rough day. I'm in my first semester of ADN school and plan on one day becoming an APN. Your perseverance, encouragement and faith really made my day! When I got home this afternoon I was feeling like, "Can I really do this?" Then I said one of my favorite Scriptures, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me," and came in to find study tips on SATA questions because that seems to be where I am struggling on Fundamentals testing. I haven't failed a test yet, but I went from a 94 down to an 80 avg on tests once we started having more SATA questions. Your post is exactly what I needed today! Congrat's on passing your NCLEX!!!!

    @Heidi 1978, thank you. I wasn't any good on SATA questions as well but I made sure I knew the content. The content is your foundation. To be able to answer the questions you don't only need good test taking strategies but you have to know the core of the content as well. NCLEX's SATA weren't as hard as Kaplan's Question bank SATA. They were more straightforward. I read a tutorial of answering SATA by approaching each choice answer as true or false in relation to what the question is asking. I feel this helped me a great deal during the exam. Good luck! Remember have faith and know that you can do this.

    Thank you. I heard a lot about Hurst Review but everyone who has taken Kaplan in my school has passed so I decided to invest in Kaplan. Each reviewer has its own benefits. I used Kaplan and Saunders simultaneously, but I would have to say that Kaplan's question trainers and question bank really helped me for NCLEX. It's a good idea to start memorizing lab values right now. There is no other way around it. Good luck with your studies and NCLEX. You can do it.

    @Jhendora, thank you. I recommend using the Saunders Comprehensive disc to practice on SATA's. They have a lot of alternative test question formats and SATA is one of them.
