The first time I took the Nclex was in October and I studied using only the saunders book and failed the nclex with 200 q's. I felt like the questions in saunders was wayyyyy easier than the actual test. But, I blamed myself b/c I let anxiety get the best of me and took the test as fast as I could the last 50 q's and I never even took a little break!:uhoh21:
Now, this second time around I took my friends advice and used Kaplan. I did the q bank with an average of 67% and my q trainer % were:
test 1: 57
test 2: 68
test 3: 61
test 4: 63
test 5: 59
test 6: 69
test 7: 64
Does anyone know if my scores are ok? I think I am just starting to freak out a little bit since I retake the nclex in two days. I have been working on taking my time on each and every question. I pray that my anxiety will not get the best of me! I have a job I am also suppose to start in January! It's just a little scary since I did fail the first time I took it and it was the first time I had ever failed at anything! I don't want to fail and have to experience the feelings all over again!
Please give me any advice or encouragement for my second time around. I think the day before the test I will just try to relax and maybe review a little!
