    Thread moved to the International Forum since it is specific to the NCLEX exam, and not to working in the the Philippines.

    actually ATI is an international review course for nclex,its like kaplan's counterpart here in PI i guess. it can be reached thru their website..i forgot the exact website but if youre interested you can just google it. what i won't ever advice is the review center that used ATI..the name of that review center is evoke learning center located in espana, near ust. yes, ATI review course is good but the review center evoke who handles it here in the PI isn't.maybe the ATI in the states is way better. alot of times questions asked to the lecturers aren't answered, they just tell us that they'll research on that and will get back on it soon..but never did it happen that they cleared a question asked to them. i learned to self study because of their attitudes though..

    any pinoys who can share their nclex experience is a great help for all of us who'll take it. better answer the poll questions.. thanks!

    I stopped at 119, I used Saunders and did self study while working as a IP nurse. I felt drain but happy after the exam.

    wow..seems like things are really tough in terms of reviewing for the nclex for us foreign students eh? Saunders is on top of the list for the most used review material for filipinos preparing for the nclex though..kaplan is second i think..lets see on further posts if saunders really takes the lead..

    how many questions you had on your exam?

    i answered the full 265 questions

    what did you use as a review material?
    i used the online review of ncsbn for more than 8 weeks (studying and working at the same time), used saunders and nclex made incredibly easy practice questions.

    enrolled in a review center or home study?

    home study but i had to pay for the online review of ncsbn. it worked for me because i also had to work at the same time study for the exam.

    percentage of topics youre very familiar with on the actual nclex questions?

    i'm sure it was 100%, but during the actual exam itself, when anxiety and negative thoughts sets in, all i could do was pray that i'm ticking the correct answer.

    what did you feel after you finish your exam?

    i sulk in my hotel room after the exam. couldn't even taste the food that i was putting in my mouth that time. i was 100% sure that i failed the exam (answering 265 questions and all). i didn't cry but i was depressed for a while. i tried to forget all about it and just waited for the failed letter from ca brn. after almost 8-10 weeks of waiting, god (and st. jude) heard my prayers and i passed!!! i shouldn't have underestimated my self!
