Best NCLEX-prep Programs?

taygg taygg (New) New

Hi, all!

I've taken the NCLEX twice now. Both times I failed at around the maximum number of questions. :(

I'm wondering if anyone has used the "BoardVitals" or NCSBNs "Learning Extension" courses?? I am debating between these two as far as a resource to purchase to prepare me for my third attempt. I have already taken ATI and Kaplan review courses. ATI seemed to focus on content review while Kaplan was more of a test taking strategy program. I did like the decision-tree but obviously I still have failed the NCLEX so I need something more.

Any tips or advice would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Try UWorld and give the demo a try. NCLEX-RN Exam - Online Practice Questions & Review

I used it, along with many users on here. It's definitely one of the best ones out there. It is just a qBank but the quality is phenominal. The questions were very similar to the NCLEX and the program of UWorld mimics the actual exam so it helps with being comfortable writing the NCLEX because the formatting is familiar.

I passed on my first time with a lot of it having to do with UWorld, it's worth it in my opinion!

Edit: I just tried the BoardVitals trial version, and what I don't like about it is that once you click on an answer, it will automatically say if you are right or wrong.

I usually like to click on questions and tend to change the answers before submitting it to the next question.

Also for the SATA questions, it will show you automatically that you are "incorrect" until all correct answers have been selected; I don't understand why they do this because you will continually know you are wrong to your choices. In other words, what if you "thought" that 1, 3, and 5 are correct answers, but the program still shows "incorrect" - so you know you are wrong and your now biased towards adding additional answers to them.

I would not recommend the BoardVitals because of that.
