Anyone using NCSBN learning ext? Need feedback!

Posted

Hi,

I was hoping to get some feedback on anyone whose done the NCSBN, or is doing this NCLEX RN review through their learning extension online course. If you don't mind sharing, I'd like to know what your average low percentage scores are in some of the areas and overall average mid percents (whichever)? I hear that students really are just doing the practice bank questions, and reading rationales- right or wrong.

My NCLEX is coming up in10 days and I have been doing NCSBN's Learning extension and doing their questions and starting to do questions on a KAPLAN CD rom I got along with their book I bought. I am also doing the Saunder's nclex test bank questions on my mobile phone app too. My second question is, do you think this is a good study plan? I am also reviewing/refreshing up on material I know but need to look at again.

I'm really nervous about this... And I am happy to see how successful most of you are and want this so bad. I hope to work hard, and hope to get your feedback on my questions! Thanks and hope you have a happy 4th!

I used the 3 week course from NCSBN. I got really worried because many times I would get 40% on a test. What I realize now after taking NCLEX (and passing in 75:shy:) is that what matters is that you learned something and understand why you got a question wrong! I don't think the scores are necessarily a predictor of how you will do! I will say that not much of what was in the course was on my NCLEX per say, but NCSBN course is harder than the NCLEX. I think this course prepared me by helping me know how to think through a question to get the answer right, if that makes sense. My NCLEX was a humble jumble of different things. I think NCSBN is a great study tool! Good luck!

Hi Traumajunkie91, BSN, RN !

Thank you SO much for replying to my post here! I've been so worried about my percent scores on NCSBN and now feel more relieved. My exam is on July 11th and I'm doing questions after questions to review for NCLEX. If you don't mind, may I ask you also how you studied for NCLEX? What worked for you?

Again, thank you for replying! I hope I pass NCLEX and become an RN soon too! :)

Hello there! My scores on learning ext ncsbn are average 60-70% im now working on qbank 40 or 45-65. There was one time i got 40 and 50.. And sometimes 80-90.. My exam is on august. Im also doing uworl which is pretty cool got it for free trial.. I think i will purchase it. Goodluck on your exam pray and study!

Other than using the NCSBN questions everyday I also used the Lacharity book and also used ATI which was provided by my school. I did not study content, questions only! I studied questions every day for a month, around 100 questions each day. I honestly think it was too much. I think answering questions is the best way to study!

I'm just using NCSBN and LaCharity. Did you find the questions in LaCharity harder than NCLEX? I find them quite challenging.

I HIGHLY suggest NCSBN!! I just passed NCLEX on June 28th. I found that the first four lessons were fantastic!! They are boring for sure, but I am very glad I did them. I actually thought that the nclex questions read exactly the same as the test banks. Best wishes and I hope this helps :)

That's great to know. Did you use any other resource and how did you tackle SATA questions? I always have a hard time with them.

NCSBN has alot of sata, but honestly, I have always been very good at sata. I just have issues with my nerves and basic care stuff. I did prepU Nclex and prepU pharm (to build up my confidence) I used NCSBN as my content resource (considering they wrote the exam) and I did question after question after question after question. You can do it!!!

LaCharity was WAY harder than NCLEX. By far!

Ugh SATA is my weakness. I don't know how to conquer it. I think that's my biggest problem.

HEy!

SATA is my weak point to. I bought the LIPPINCOTT alternate item format book and it saved my ass. I passed in 75 questions. Please get that book if you struggle in that area.
