Passed NCLEX: Study Tips & Tools

I will try to keep this short and to the point as possible. I will be talking about how I studied. Study tools that I used. and if the Pearson VUE tricks works in 2019 or not. 

All About Nclex/Uworld/Pvt Trick July 2019

Last week ( 07/11/2019) took my Nclex-RN and two days later got my result ( PASS ). This site has been very helpful in clarifying a lot of my doubts about Nursing school/work and what not. So I came back to post my own experience and in hopes of helping some people find answers to their question.

I graduated ADN program ( LPN/LVN - RN bridge - Helene Fuld college of nursing.NY)  back in MAY 2019. Took a month off which I regret. but you know yourself better so if you need to take a break go for it but if you ask for my advice - take no more than a week following graduation. 

As a student, I was an average student. I never memorize anything other than lab values and I try to study the concept behind any disease and stuff. I suck at pharmacology. so wanted to share that before anything. 

I strictly used Uworld ( bought a one-month subscription), did 100 + question in a day, completed 2150 plus question in 23/24 days.

  • 100 question in a day, did study mode and went with the system to system.
  • Read all the rationale wrong or right.
  • Saved rationales and created a flash card to review later and to review everything a day before nclex.
  • you can review saved flash card - system-wise as well. To create flash card either click on the diagram or just select rationales and save in flash card pops out. 
  • On all my Study/exam mode. My lowest grade has been 48% and highest 65%. at the end of completion ( 2150 question ), my average was 58% on Uworld.
  • Didn't do their evaluation etc.

So took the nclex on July 11th and stop at 80 something. Nclex set up ( color wise) is very similar to Uworld which helps. I was just answering with the best of my understanding. Never felt confident enough about any of my answer. So after 80 something, it stopped and I walk out of the test in confusion and lack of confidence.

Did Pearson VUE trick right after using my real credit card,( you can do it by changing the expiration date ) had a good POP out. ( says I can't register at this time. ). Did after 2 hours and same good pop up, did after 8 hours same good pop up and did one more time after 24 hours and same good pop up. after 48 hours I purchase my quick result and it says I pass.

I thank everyone who has shared their opinion on this site. I will be happy to share my exp if anyone has any question. I started this writing suggesting it will be short and to the point. I think this is as short as it could be. Best wishes.

Congratulations on passing!!!! Woo!

I'll be taking my NCLEX on the 13th, and I'm the same as you. I sucked at Pharmacology. Not going to lie -- I'm pretty nervous. Did the assessment on uWorld and got a "Very High Chance" after two months of rigorous studying. Regardless, the NCLEX vary from people to people, so I'm nervous I'll be bombarded with Pharm questions haha!

 

BUT! Great job studying; you've earned it. Congratulations on your pass and Good luck to everything in the future! Thank you for sharing your experience.

Hi! Sorry for the late reply, but YES! I passed! Thank goodness.

I actually left the exam feeling like I failed, but two days later and with quick results, I found that I did pass it.

I appreciate the check-up 🙂

Congratulations to you! You're officially an RN. I graduated in May and I'm taking my on the 22nd. I took my 2nd assessment today on Uworld with 55% indicating a high chance of passing. I still have 400 questions left averaging 65%. Now, I'm just reviewing as much as I can and hopefully I am able to be calm to read and answer each question carefully. My anxiety has bothered me for a few weeks but I thought I'm just gonna go for it. Were the SATA hard for you? Do you think the NCLEX questions are more broad and straight to the point because that's what I heard from people using Uworld?

Hi, thank you for the wishes. As far as your questions are concern, I would say I had about 13-15 SATA and 3-4 procedure related question (out of 80 something question).

SATA questions were definitely straight forward and to the point. Definitely there wasn’t any that ask me about sign and symptoms or answers that requires you to memorize rather it was broad and based on understanding the concept. 

Also I had about 3-4 procedure related question - I can’t pin point which procedure (steps )but it wasn’t so different from applying PPE ,stuff like clean wound or cauterization. 

Tricks that I used to calm myself 

• Every time I saw SATA or procedural question I keep saying I am doing good that’s why I am getting those ( and it calmed me down instead of making me nervous )

• I trusted my first instinct and didn’t change any answer no matter ( my weakness during school exams, I change lot of answers and most often I get them wrong )

You have read enough that your bases are strong as a nurse - whatever question u will see - your first instinct as a nurse will most often lead you to the right answer. 

trust me I used to change lot of answers during school exams and I am glad I did and got them all wrong. I finally spent time to think over it and started to trust my first instinct and it helped me pass not only school finals but nclex too.  

Best wishes

Thank you for explanation and sharing your experience. I really appreciated it. I couldn't agree more on picking the first answer I would choose because that's what I have been doing on Uworld, and they are mostly the correct answers. Maybe it's time to take a little break to relieve my anxiety. Thanks for the encouragement and good luck in your future career as well.
