    I am doing the Kaplan course right noe, but also using Saunders. I do want to go through all of the Saunders book before I test. I purchased the Saunders book while in school and has been such a help. I did use the questions while in school but I plan to answer the rest of hte questions as a study guide for the NCLEX.

    I'm currently using Suzanne's plan, I'm working on the first step. I'm trying to get at least 5 chapters done a day. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right because once I take the the quiz for each chapter, I look at the correct answer and read the rationales for each question. So if I did not get at least 75% on the chapter I now know the correct answer, which I don't know if is hurting or helping me in the long run. Because once I re-read the chapter I'm now familiar with the correct answer once I take the quiz again.

    I recently used Suzanne's plan and pass NCLEX the third time using
    her plan. I can definately say it work, I used kaplan before but I find
    Suzanne,s plan using the saunders work for me. Just follow her plan
    exactly as she state and you will be successfull.

    Best of luck

    I used Suzanne's plan and passed. You must follow the plan just as she has it written and you will pass. She is right about using to many review plans, it is to hard to stay focused when you jump from plan to plan. I bet I have 30 review books, I put them all away except the Saunders 3rd Edition. She has been doing this a long time and if you really want to pass use her plan.

    If you are having problems focusing may be worth taking a short break from studying. Are you allocating set time to study? Are you working as well as studying? Sometimes worth making a timetable and keep to it.

    i am a stay at home mom with 2 children(a 9-year old son and a 2.5 year old daughter). I know that I may have a lot of time but its so hard for me to retain all the info. I failed the 1st time last October and I really want to pass the next time. Please share some good practices that may apply to me. Thanks Silverdragon for your response

    Hi
    I too am a stay at home mom with three kids age 5, 3 and 2!!! It is difficult to concentrate with them around but I try to study when they are either sleeping or watching T.V. etc... keep them busy is my motto!! I am right now on Suzanne's first tip.. still reading up and I do have a study plan like I decide I will complete a set amount of chapters and try my level best with all the cleaning cooking et al... dont try to retain any info as such.. practice Q's related to the topics you are reading and that will tell you what to focus on..that is what I do...hope this helps

    Orca, I don't have any advice, but I thought it might make you feel better to know that I, too, am struggling with just the first tip...It's no problem when I can get a 75% on the Chapter quiz - but when I have to go back & re-read a chapter...it just takes me FOREVER!! I actually thought I was doing the first step wrong until I saw your post, so it's good to know I'm not the only one - thanks

    For those who are doing the program or did the program, I have a question. I'm not sure if I'm doing the first step correctly. Once I've completed the quiz at the end of the chapters, I look at the answers and read the rationales for all the questions, my problem is for the chapters that I did not score at least the required 75% on I now know the answers so when I go back and read that specific chapter and take the quiz over again I always get 100% because I've went over the right answers previously. Do anyone know if this is the correct way?

    That is correct. If you do not get 75% or more the first time you read the chapter and do the quiz again, you should get a lot more.
