Calling July 8th test-takers!

Posted

Hi guys! Just drop by. We need each others support now and prayers, too!

I am testing July 7.. good luck! We got this! :)

Keep us posted! :) hows ur review going? What are you using?

I am using Kaplan course and the qbanks. I studied the content videos, read the whole book and this last week will be spent doing qbank questions and reviewing rationales. I bought the Lacharity book, but haven't really used it.

Right now, I am watching some Nurse Jackie and doing qbanks.

How about you?

I still feel a little anxious about this exam, but I feel like I am ready. I was scheduled to take it July 15, but decided to reschedule to an earlier date to ease the anxiety (thinking this will be out of the way soon).

i am finishing my Hurst lectures now. Hopefully, i can get it done this weekend. i also have 5 more chapters left on La charity. i am not sure if i will still be able to go to the case study part. i am doing 75-100/day questions on nclex 3500. and have done with Q1-Q4 on kaplan qtrainer. but got very low scores. 45-50% only. i dont know where this is going. only prayers and faith in God will get me through this.

You're fine hun. The scores really doesn't say anything about your ability to pass. Don't let it discourage you. Just relax. :) You know this. I did crappy with Lacharity questions, so I just stopped using it and just focusing on Qbanks.

You got through nursing school.. you are capable of passing the NCLEX.

I will pray for you and I will constantly post here so I can remind you every day that you can do it. :)

i'm scheduled july 8th as well!! i'm extremely nervous. i'm answering questions from ncsbn, ati, kaplan, & davis's q&a and reviewing content from saunders. i started the lacharity book but haven't finished yet. my test scores for ncsbn have all been below passing and that's really making me nervous....especially since i think their questions are most similar to the actual nclex. i'm a repeat test taker and i have a job offer that's contingent upon me passing....no pressure!! i just pray that this time will be it. have to stay positive and focused! good luck to all of you and hopefully we will all be back here posting that we passed ;)

Goodluck to all of you!!! :rckn:

I am testing July 8th as well! I am taking Kaplan online and have been doing some Davis Q&A on the side. I have been studying for a good solid month. My Kaplan scores are below passing level though so I am nervous! Plus, I have a job offer contingent on passing so I am even more nervous.

Good luck to everyone! :nurse:

Good luck guys!

We're almost to our testing date. I am just doing QBanks now and just reviewing rationales.

Good luck you guys. I would not have scheduled so close to the holiday myself.

Hey mizznurse,

I actually plan on taking the day off. I think we deserve a day off and then get back into studying after that! My qbank scores have been improving slightly. So far, I am really happy with Kaplan and hopefully it helps me on July 8th!

How is everyone else doing with the studying! Good luck everyone! :)

July 7th also here! I'm planning on doing a good amount of studying every day until the night before, when I'm gonna relax and go out to a movie.... fingers crossed.... btw I'm using a book called comprehensive nclex rn review by hogan... she was my instructor so it came with my course which was pretty good, its also a pearson/prentice hall book but has anyone else ever used it? Im curious how this book stacks up to lacharity, saunders, kaplan, none of which i have had the dinero to use...

Katy, you're right.. we deserve a day off to release some anxiety n stress. Have an awesome 4th of july!

I know, i noticed my scores impoving also in Qbanks.. so i will keep on practicing. We got this! :) I am only relying on Kaplan to pass this exam.. as far a as study materials are concerned.. i hope it's sufficient.

Thank you! I hope you have a great and relaxing day off! We need it before the test. I am only using Kaplan too. Good luck. We can do it! I am trying to stay positive, plus I think Kaplan really helps. Are you going to take the day before the test off?

Knowing myself, i probably wont. haha. i will probably do some last minute reviewing.. I may be different but it puts me at ease reviewing last minute. I will try to relax that day though.. no major studying.. probably just going through my notes. Will probably visit church and watch a movie. How about you?

I know most of my classmates who only used Kaplan and passed.

Hang in there. We will pass. :)
