I've just found out i've failed the exam for the second time, I've never had an issue with school (always good grades) and now I go into this exam and think I'm having no issue and it's another fail. I studied the fourth and fifth prep guide and felt like they were easier than the exam, bought four prep guide books off of amazon and did not have any issues with them either I found them to be an awesome resource, and I bought the predictor exams and previous exams off of yardstick and was finishing with 80% no concerns. I'm writing exam in the next up and coming exam date due to I need to get this finished for my job. I'm just feeling so down and shocked by this exam. I don't know how to start studying for this exam again. I feel like I know the material but when I choose the answer for the exam I'm questioning which answer I would do as a nurse and "what answer does this exam want?". Any suggestions how to over come picking the answers?

Not sure if there is any differences between yardstick assessment and ASI (I wrote with ASI), how did you read the questions? How did you answer it? How difficult did you find the exam when you were answering?

Thanks for the response! I wrote wtih ASI on my final breakdown. I found the questions half and half, some easy to identify and some harder to understand. I finished 140 questions without second guessing then the rest had to really think about them. What study materials did you use? I re-write in three weeks

I used 6th edition NCLEX-PN examination by saunders. Hm, Is it knowledge you're lacking? When I answered the questions I considered the ABC's and know that SAFETY and EXPLORING patient's feelings etc is important. Also, process of elimination, at the end you should be able to pick between 2 answers. How are you studying?

@DoodB162 ur not alone on this. I failed on my 1st attempt as well and I'm going on my 2nd attempt next week. I tried the predictor test as well and believe me when i say my results weren't great at all. I compared my predictor test results with the cpnre results and it's nowhere close so dont go based on that. I'm hoping we all make it tru... btwn where did u do ur exam ? I did mine in toronto

Hey. I’m in Calgary. I actually went and met up with CLPNA to discuss my marks and how I could do better and basically they said to stay away from yard stick, any predictor exam, etc. They said it’s all false safety net.
