    Are you referring to the NCLEX, the licensure exam for LPN's/LVN's and RN's? The content is all nursing-related, but just like real-world nursing, you use your knowledge of math and science to answer many of the questions.

    Here's a link to the organization that creates the NCLEX. All kinds of info there. We also have an NCLEX Discussion Forum here at Allnurses.

    I would suggest you pick up an NCLEX review guide. I highly recommend the Saunders Comprehensive Review Guide for NCLEX-RN. It is full of sample questions. It also comes with a CD that you can use to take sample tests. You can focus on particular subject areas or a general review. Pay particular attention to the rationales for each question. It will guide you as to why one answer is MORE correct than the others. You will get a good feel of the correct way to answer the questions on the NCLEX test. Good luck!
