1. I was extremely worried last week. I have been using the Saunder Comprehensive Review and CD ROM .

    I also signed up for the online review course that is by the NCSBN website. I have been testing in the mid 70s with saunders but in the low 50s - mid 60s with NCSBN.

    I kept doing questions all week ( about 400-600 per day) and today i went back to the NCSBN site and took 4 more tests....

    I scored in this order...60, 63, 73, 80!
    In Saunders I am now scoring in the high 80s - mid 90s....

    I definately see an improvement....let's hope it is enough for NCLEX......

    I am taking the exam Monday morning so i guess i will get results by Wed.....

    I will continue doing questions until about 7pm on Sunday and then I will take a bath and relax, say alot of prayers and get to bed early....

    Wish me LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Take a deep breath, sit back and look at each question carefully without rushing.

    Good luck!!

    From another post.....

    I have several friends who are doing Kaplan and I am hearing the same complaints from them. Somehow I think Kaplan wants you to doubt your ability.... (then you are more dependant on them). One friend is getting 58-64 on their practice tests but is getting 73-78 on say Saunders. I took one of their practice test and got 68% on most other I've been scoring above 75... Who knows...

    Don't doubt yourself!

    I think this may apply to many of the paid "reviews"

    Well....it's over.....and it was hard...mostly priority type questions...like which pt would you see first....no new format....

    the lady at pearson told me to check tonight for results....she said they are usually posted same day, even though they tell you to wait 2 days..

    has anyone else gotten the results same day?

    By the way....i went to 175 questions......3hours....and no idea whether i passed or not....it's truly 50/50 ......i will go to pray now....

    Someone told me I needed to remember to breathe when I took the exam. They were right. Relax and take your time. Eat a good meal beforehand, but nothing greasy! Wear clothes that are loose and comfy (sweats are great) and bring a light jacket.
    Sit at that computer just like you're doing right now, like you have been during practice. After all, it's just another bunch of questions you're going to do your best at, right?
    I know it's much more, I was just trying to be light. Take it easy, you will be fine.
