What is the best way to study for the NCLEX?

  1. Like many of you I am going to take the NCLEX in June to become an RN. Maybe you guys can give me an idea of the best way to study for the NCLEX.
    Thanks,

    I recommend Saunder's for review book, it also comes with a terrific CD.
    Plan on doing 100 questions per day, and have at least 3000 to 4000 completed before taking the exam...........

    Good luck...................

    memorize everything on every page of every book...especially pt teaching on obscure drugs and 1 in 100k occurance pedi diseases....i never felt so dumb in my life...there was no way to think thru scientifically at least half of the scenarios i was given this morning on my nclex...people do pass and i may have passed but it was only because Gods angels themselves were pushin and clickin my mouse.

    Lippincott's review for NCLEX is what im using.. Its great.. It allows you take tests.. And it shows you were you are strong and were you need improvement.. You should check it out.. Its not very expensive.. you get a book full of Q and A and the disk.. Which it what im using... Hope that helps..

    I took the nclex yesterday and it was awful. I had 265 nclex questions, meds i never give, machinery malfunction, and diagnostics. Does anyone pass after answering 265 questions.

    Try studying while you're still in school... And if your school has a computer lab they probably have the "test" there.. I just took it every time I was in the computer lab..

    I did 75 questions in about 20 minutes..Passed too.

    You must be, a remarkable student with this results!

    Actually I am planing to take the Nclex by the second time, the first time my english wan't enought to understand the whole exam.

    Now almust a year later I am planing to take it again, I am feeling nervous but normal, not like the cases that I heard in this web.

    What helped you the must, to approach the exam so outstanding as you did?

    Iam studying BY Saunders 2005, Lippincots, Kaplan books from the review course, Frye's bullets, Princeton review, mosby and so on, want take many questions from different sources I think that is a good way to pass.


    Whatever tip or info, I will appreciate it.

    Congratulations again.

    I know that there are people who pass after taking the whole test. However, I unfortunately was not one of them. I took the whole test and I failed it. I am now studying again, and will re-rake it again in April. I sure hope that my next attempt is my last attempt! LOL Good luck to you, I hope you passed.
