Took nclex today! (Foreign Graduate)

  1. 1 Hi! I believe that Saunders helped me alot in terms of content. The questions were kind of similar to saunders. Most of the questions were one liners. I got the good pop up after 76 items. If this would be of help, I did self review, I did the Saunders 4th and 5th edition, kaplan book review, hurst book review, nclex 3500, nclex exam cram, lipincott. i believe that saunders really helped me alot as far as content and critical thinking. i hope i could help future exam takers. good luck!

    I did about 300-400 questions 6 days a week for 3 months, but that was because I got my ATT late. I was ready after the second month. I usually rotated the books. A 100 from saunders, 100 from 3500, 100 from lipincott, and a 100 for the exam cram. My scores were usually 75-80+%. This worked for me.

    I had about 8-10 SATA.

    The kaplan book that I studied was the strategies book, it was the first book I used then I answered the CD which contained 180 questions, then I went on to my other books.

    Hope this helps guys! Goodluck!

    I am so terrified of those SATA and getting tons of Them ugh and Pharm.!!! Idk where to find SATA questions to practice....we're they more critical thinking or had to def know the info to answer??

    Pharm was OK, just knowing the classifications of the drugs were and the common nursing interventions and side/adverse effects were enough to answer the questions. I had about 3-5 medications and 2 drug calculations. Saunders and Nclex 3500 have good SATA questions. I didn't get a ton of sata, just about 8-10. I think its a mix between critical thinking and had to know. Saunders helps in both of those situations. Goodluck! you can do it!
