    I took the 3 week course through ncsbn.org it costs $49.00 for 3 weeks, and I also used my Saunders nclex review book and the kaplan book on how to read the questions and pick your answers. for 1 month this was all that I did. The course was very good and was of great benefit to me I would recommend the ncsbn.org course to anybody who is having difficulty passing their boards. Their questions are very similar tho the state boards. :angel2: best of luck! keep me posted.

    This is exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm also doing ncsbn online course, and using Kaplan and Saunders books and CD's. I hope it works for me too!!
    Well done to you

    Biggirl4, try to stay positive. They say that everyone feels uncertain after the test. I had a friend a couple weeks ago whose test stopped at 75 and she passed. She said that when the test stopped she just sat there for a minute because she didn't know what to think. And now she's an RN. I will be in your shoes this week myself, so I'll be writing trying to get everyone to encourage me. I pray all goes well. Keep us posted.

    i took the ncsbn, saunders, and kaplan.

    i found that kaplan questions are the best and as difficult comparing to the nclex.
