best nclex study materials.....

Nothing.

Get a study guide now. I used the one by the national student nurses association. But it does not matter which one.

Start using the guide immediately. Forget Kaplan of course they guarentee. The vast majority (I forgot the exact figures but they are very high it was over 80% I believe) pass the first time they take it anyway.

You are studing for the boards now. Don't waiste weeks or months after you graduate 'studying' cause there is no way you are going to lean it all in a few months if you did not learn it in school.

answereing sample test questions is not studying. however, continual exposure to NCLEX style questions while you are in school will help you learn how to take the test.

So get a review manual and use it now as you go along.

There are well under 300 total possible questions. Anything over that is repeating the same question in a different way.

So 1,000 or 2,000 it doesn't matter. If you think you will have memorized the question and feel more questions will keep you from just learning specific wording that doesn't happen there is no way you could memorize all of them if you tried.

Beside if you do memorize it you can answer it no matter how it is worded.

Would you say to not get a Kaplan book then to study for the boards? I was going to get their newest edition and a Saunders book. What are your thoughts on this?
