i am actually in teh Kaplan class.
in hindsight i wish i had opted for the 'online only' course.
in person is a complete waste of time.
the woman leading the class is nice, however she directs you to 'look that one up' when asked for further explanations.
also a side rant. you have to go at the pace of your classmates. a lot of whom will agonize over the answer/rational and how impossible it is when it relates to the realworld.
it's like OK< we get it...in the real world this blah blah blah. but you're wasting everyones time crowing about how this would never be applicable in teh real world!
i want to tell these people get over yourself you're wasting time focusing on problems rather than solutions!!! gah
sorry i'm just stressing right now.
good luck to all those going to take the exam!
my buddy who i went to nursing school with who took Rutgers said the 5 hours of review was draining and didn't have the energy to do questions afterword.
also two last comments on kaplan.
1) they have out dated questions. i have had two questions asking for Grains to Mg's.
2)the diagnostic exams they make you take on entrance and completion of the coures are pencil and paper...like what the...??? why do this? it's almost a regression. Why not offer the diagnostic/exit tests on computer at the center to mimic the NCLEX as much as possible.
bak to doing questions.
