I have the Saunders Comprehensive Review. Should I also buy the Saunders Q&A Review too?
Jan 16, '08Occupation: RN Specialty: OB ; Joined: Jun '06; Posts: 56; Likes: 5I got my ATT on Monday so I'm signed up for the NCLEX on the 28th. I was very lucky to get that appointment, I think someone rescheduled theirs as I was looking at the times. I don't have my eligibility letter yet that says I can work as a GN though. So I'm just a unit secretary w/ a BSN until then! I'm really hoping it comes by Friday...I'm in Florida...does anyone know if that is something that comes via email like the ATT or is that a snail mail letter that comes from the BON? My manager said it usually comes a few days apart from the ATT...I just don't know what to be looking out for!

Ive been studying like mad! Im trying to shoot for 6 hrs a day so far so good and oh my god I have learned sooooo much! mostly barnes and noble, but get this ... Ive mostly been doing sauders and have been doing really really well answering all of the ques. then I went to a Hurst review to switch it up a bit and I got a lot of them wrong! My confidence level went down ... also in regards to your ques. I never realized there were 2 different sauders? hmm, interesting. I might have told you www.ecampus.com is a good site to find books as low as $14 per book. Some are used, but from what they say are in good shape and some are new. I have some books coming any day now... I think I have way too many books, but I feel I need to switch it up 'cause I get bored of the same book and figure I want to 'cover as much ground' so to speak... also a god tip in one of the books was saying that NCLEX is testing us mainly on how to save a life and also is basic as a new nurse... kinda makes you think that a lot would basics such as lab values, med. side effects, categories of drugs, of course safety and also focus on scope of practice ... we would never do the job out of our scope and see an unstable client.. thatd be the RN. I did read a lot on triage which is the same as delegating.. Ive covered some very interesting topics...!! I will email you tomorrow some of my notes i have typed up so far.. mostly Pharm. but Im also writing in my notebook and havent transferred it yet.. it just sticks better when I do the reading, the notes and then type and print... ugh! I wish I learned in an easier way!!!
Jan 17, '08Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 436; Likes: 292I wish I'd get my ATT. I graduated 12/13, and still nothing. I registered with Pearson 7 days ago.
I saw yesterday that they have an opening at my nearest site next week, but at 8 AM.
I'm not a super-early person.
I hope they have some later - in -the-day options!

Graduated Dec. 8th. School did not send packet off until JAN 4th -- Nearly ONE MONTH later! ARGGGGG!!!!!!!:angryfire
Checking my e-mail about every 15 minutes when home.
I guess I will be lucky to test by the end of MARCH!
My state will not even show you the test dates and sites available until you get your ATT so I can't even plan work around potential test dates!
OK Rant Over!
Congratulations to everyone who has their letter.
Good Luck to US ALL on the test!

Jan 17, '08Joined: Jan '07; Posts: 436; Likes: 292I heard that, if you sign up with Pearson in advance, create an account and pay the $200 - then as soon as you receive your ATT letter you can schedule your test date.
And I signed up last Thursday and do have an account, so all I'm waiting for is the ATT letter.
From whom does the ATT letter come from?

You are awesome! I wish I had the motivation you had in studying...I haven't studied since Monday night.
I found out that my director sent our papers on the 26th of December but the BVNPT cashed my check yesterday for the application fee. My director said we should receive our eligibility letter late next week. I'm starting to get nervous but I keep putting off studying....
Thanks for the info btw...and thank you so much for sharing...
Jan 18, '08Joined: Oct '05; Posts: 48; Likes: 27I graduated on Dec 14 and still have not received my ATT. I think our transcripts were delayed going out because one of our teachers didn't get our grade in on time.
I have also heard that all the test dates around here are full. So frustrating!

Because it does go to your bulk folder. Once BON deems you eligible then they electronically send info. to PV then PV sends your ATT thru email (if you chose that method) and usually a day or two latr you get your 8x10 or maybe its 11x10 envelope from BON....if yu have already paid PV then the day you get your big envelope all you have to do is jump online and sign up ... if you dont pay PV prior then you have to wait up to 72 hours MORE before you can pick your day and time ... good luck ... !!!
