Exactly, so that is why you are supposed to learn it the first time, so that when you are done with all of your tests, you won't be trying to look it up in a book when you see it in real life
I'm not disagreeing with your method of learning, I'm explaining, that the time for learning the basics in nursing, is in school.
Generally most people see it as, when you finish your tests, you are ready.
But if you are still trying to find the answers while you are taking your test, you are obviously not ready.
Would you advocate an open book NLCEX? Do you really feel like people who can't pass NCLEX without a book should receive their licenses to represent themselves as professional Registered Nurses?
Sorry, please do not misread any type of aggressive tone in my post
