    Kathykay and Blabber, you care really something! I do hope I can pass NCLEX on my first take. I'm not planning to take the exam immediately. I'm not the kind of person who rush things when it comes to this matter. I'm planning to take it after a year. Study while working. And Suzanne, thank you for answering our questions... I really had no idea about PN, agencies, etc etc... until I read the information you gave! It's really not that easy!

    Please go to the NCLEX Discussion Forum and look for the sticky that is called the First Tip. That must be completed before you can get the rest of the program sent to you. There is no place for you to review it, it comes only from me.

    Follow the instructions that are there.

    1. What are the materials that you used?
    Lippincott Made Incredibly Easy for my comprehensive Review. Saunders is also highly recommendable. For the Q&A part, I used Lippincott Q&A made incredibly easy, Saunders' Q&A, Kaplan, NCSBN, and a lot of NCLEX Cd Reviewers.

    2. How many hours per day did you study? how many questions did u answer per day?
    Me and my friend usually start studying at 9pm until 5am. We do it in a coffee shop or just along baywalk. If you are a sleepy person, then this study habit/ studying outside your home might be useful for you.

    3. How many days or months in total you studied before taking the exam?
    a couple and a half months

    4. What are the specific strategies that you used or the the test taking skills you applied during the exam?
    a. ABC
    b. maslow
    c. nursing process
