That is a lot of money to spend on something I feel the majority of people successfully pass in the first place. The book only cost around $30.00 I passed the boards on my first try. If you feel you need the couse I say go for it. I think you will do fine anyway.

"You have spent how many years in nursing school studying? What do you expect Kaplan to accomplish in a few days that your nursing instructors could not accomplish in months and years. " <----- SUCH a good point! All you guys made such good points and actually made me realize that I really didnt work my A** off for 2 years with no social life and constant stress for someone to tell me I cant do this on my own....Ive already proven I can, I graduate in May. Thats proof enough Im ready to take the NCLEX! I just really appreciate all your help....you opened my eyes to some stuff. Thank you so much! BIG HUGS to ALL of you!

HOLY COW> no I did NOT waste a dime on "prep" courses. I reviewed my books, starting and concentrating on subjects that had been covered early in nursing school that I easily forgot such as OB and PSYCH. I never considered for one minute spending so much money to prep me for an exam. I just did the exam.
