Archer is good and cheap but, UWorld is great as well. You can buy them both, that's what many do.

Archer and World Look identical.  Archer is free for 15 days and then $15 for 2 months I think.  I don't remember off the top of my head.  I didn't pay for archer - I already had UWorld so I did archer enough to be able to tell my friends..... if you can't afford UWorld - do archer.  Archer is new and in time it will be a great competitor to UWorld.  At the moment, some of their rationales lack details like UWorld.  Don't get me wrong - for $200 I would have chosen Archer and most likely still passed (I haven't taken NCLEX yet). There isn't a lot of difference - but Archer is new to NCLEX (not testing prep though) and they don't have all the rough edges worked out of their questions yet.  Oh - and Archer doesn't offer adaptive tests (or they didn't 2 weeks ago), the rest is nearly identical.

Thank you so much. Yes I do see the typo error but is kind of refreshing my mind per knowledge basis. Yes you cant beat that 15 buck for 60 days over 200 buck. Thanks for the feed back

Definitely UWorld over archer any day. Like stated above, maybe in time archer will get better but it’s not great, hence how they can give it away for free/ sell it so cheap. Nobody would pay for the quality that it is currently. Go with UWorld.

LOL you said why give it way. Yes the price is very cheap for people that dont money. Do you see the question informative let remove the rationale aside. Becasue they need to work on it very well. Have you taken NCLEX ? Is Archer question scenerio match up with NCLEX standard? please advice

I’m not sure I understand exactly what you are asking, but in my opinion, no the archer qbank wasn’t comparable to NCLEX questions. That’s my experience. Considering that the NCLEX is high stakes and it’s going to cost a lot of money to repeat it if you fail, I think it is worth it to go for a good product like UWorld or even Kaplan

I used UWorld to prep for the exam and tried Archer Review. I didn't like the rationales in Archer Review. UWorld is better.

Juliet29: I agree with IJEOMA12. If you have money to spend, get both. If you do not want to spend that much for the same passing result on NCLEX, just get Archer. Archer Qbank is the closest you can get to NCLEX. I took my exam 3 months ago and used Archer and Mark K alone and passed easily.

I first learned about Archer from my friends who did both UWorld and Archer together and they swore that Archer Questions are most useful for the type of Qs they test on NCLEX. For this reason and also because I could not afford pricey UWorld, I went with Archer Qbank and that is the best decision I ever made. Archer Qbank changed 3 times during my subscription alone --- they are very fast in editing, updating content, and adding many high yield questions almost every other week.  Archer has most SATA ( even more than UWorld), lots of fundamentals and adult health questions on topics that are tested the most. If you look Archer NCLEX Youtube channel, you will know that these are the day to day topics they test the most on NCLEX and these are the topics that you find on UWorld too 🙂 The questions I saw on the exam are strikingly similar to many Qs on Archer question bank. 

If you go on facebook, there are hundreds of people these days that swear by Archer. And it is refreshingly, "NOT PRICEY" at all which is a rare find these days. I am writing this detailed post so that many nurses out there who are struggling to come up with money can finally take a breath of relief!!

I am not sure why two commentators above said otherwise but may because they do not have the paid version and newest version of Archer. As you have already noted, Archer has been out now in 8 months and updated more than 10 times during one month of my subscription alone. So it is not true that Archer now is same as Archer in January 🙂 

I will conclude by letting you know what I found on why Archer keeps the Qbank free for 15 days. So about 2 weeks ago, I was getting a 1-year subscription for my younger sister who is going to appear for NCLEX early next year. I wanted to get it soon as I thought they will end their promotion soon. I asked Archer when their price will change and if the sale will end soon??

You know what they said ?- They told me that they want EVERY NURSE to access Archer question bank and they are transparent so they will not charge you to use the Qbank. They do not even charge you automatic renewals. If you like it after 15 days of practice, you have to manually go and purchase it for just $25 for 3 months!. They said the only way they will let every nurse know about it is by letting them access all their 2400 Qs for full 15 days!! You can not beat that offer, this company has my full trust and there is a reason why they are growing too fast--- so when the nurses use it, they really find it is as good as UWorld and when they pass, they spread the word. When they pass, they will tell others that they passed just by spending $25 on test prep, not $200. It is as simple as that. This seems to be a great company with revolutionary ideas and great goals. So I thought I would post my experience with it here.  I wish they allowed me to post some Archer Qbank screenshots, I would love to share their questions here to prove my points above --- or even better, you just go out there and get it free girl! I have recommended it to many friends and almost all have passed in the last 2 months and interestingly, most of them passed in 65 to 70 Questions. I wish you all the best, my friend. If you need any help, please feel free to ask.
