    Welcome - Sauders review I used when preparing for nclex and I highly recomend it. I am a midwife and managed to pass first time with no obs questions at all where as my husband who knowes nothing about obs had loads of obs questions even some on breast feeding.

    sauders is very good, my recommendation is to get the books with the cd roms and do as many questions as you can, ebay or amazon can be a good place to look
    belinda, jeremy and breastfeeding!! for some reason this made me smile!!!

    Just wanted to add that I had abosulutely no maths at all, or any breastfeeding questions!

    I would say almost 50% of my questions were which telephone call you would answer 1st! at least that's what it felt like to me. I had a few tick all that apply, mostly drug related, which in retrospect I think were probably not scored because of where they were compared to the other questions I had.

    Hi there, I sat the NCLEX last week in the states while on holiday. Thankfully I passed. I cannot recommend enough Suzannes study programme! (Look at the NCLEX discussion forum on this website for more info) Good Luck!!

    I am going to try and get more cd roms, thanks for the advice, did you all study for months or weeks , and how many hours a week did you put in?
    Did you find the drugs questions difficult?

    Sauders is the best book I wouldn't spend money on anymore. I tried to do atleast 1 hour a night when working and a couple of hours when not. Try not to overload yourself. I even made a few cards that I could take about with me especially if I was finding it hard to remember

    Good luck

    Our advice thats og and I is get the cd rom from sauders start doing the questions seta of ten at the time and then review the anwsers have a look at what areas u are falling down on . Start building up the number of test questions untill you are doing sets of fifty then week or so befor the exam do a good few sets of 75 or more questions to get use to consentrating for that length of time.
    This is the method we used we both past first time not bad bearing in mind that either of us have done any general nursing for years.

    Good luck and remember it is the nursing anwser u are looking for.
