I would make sure that your confident with select all that apply (SATA) questions.. they are really putting a lot on the exams. I had 75 questions, and I would say i had 10-15 SATA. Also, make sure you READ the question, and recognize what they are asking. For instance: I had a SATA questions that was about administered blood, but the question was asking about which would DECREASE the risk of infection. ALL of the answers were correct way to administer blood, but NOT ALL were going to decrease the risk of infection. Understand? Also, I would make sure you know your conversions.. I had two medication administration questions that involved mcg... and you had to convert to mg, etc.

It also is all about the type questions your given, and your level of knowledge. So, go in confident, relax, breath, and conquer the test!!!

yes, it is very important to read the question carefully! try to relax, answer each question to the best of your ability. don't over think! in my opinion, if you practice priority questions prior to taking the nclex you shouldn't have any problem tackling the so called "higher level" questions. the one that really worried me was the SATAs (I had exactly 12) and Meds so I focused on them since I know its my weakness. I feel like I failed my exam, but I passed. Good luck with your exam! Make sure you eat before taking the test and as much as possible take a day off a day prior to your test! :)

Don't waste time worrying about how hard the questions are. Instead concentrate on learning the material so that you are able to answer questions correctly no matter how they are worded.
