Congrates on passing this exam. wahooooooo. so you believe kaplan is best. Tell more about the course . how many hrs you was studying and efforts u put. did you continuously study for 10 months?
Honestly, studying at home was not very good, for I would always find something else to do instead of studying. Usually, I would study 1 or 2 hours per day, but as I said before, I didn't stick to my own schedule. I bought a Sanders Nclex made increadibly easy book 2004 version. I tried separating topics because it had a lot of information which made my studying worse because you can't just learn everything.
I believe Kaplan is the best option because it narrows down each topic. For example, the book has a section for meds with the most important things you need to know without confusing you with dosages (which btw, NCLEX doesn't ask, with a few exceptions, such as digoxin or lithium). Kaplan also teaches you to read the question to eliminate information you don't need and also fin 'clues' to direct you to the answer.
