Hello Guys!

I graduated a month ago, and now facing the big "Monster" called NCLEX! I'm very nervous indeed, but I try to believe that I CAN pass this exam with no issue! I'm currently doing a 5-week course from NCSBN's learningext. I'm very worried as I'm always scoring in the low 60's on each posttest (given after each lesson). The passing grade is 75, and I have never gotten close to that..ever! Is that a bad sign?

I plan to take the exam on the 14th day of July..which is a month away! I started Pharm today, and I can say this: I FEEL LOST! There are so many side effects and other stuffs..How do I learn those?

Please did anyone have a good experience with learningext review???

I will also LOG IN my daily regards to studying for NCLEX! You good people can help me stay responsible during this journey to SUCCESS!


First and Last time NCLEX taker!

Lesson 6: Classification of Meds according to Body Systems (Didn't finish this! It's SOOOO VAST!)

Self check practice questions: Total of 20 (Got 45%) :(

Going to bed now, hoping to wake up and study once more!

-Peace and Blessings :)

You can do this! New grad has higher chance of passing. Goodluck :)

Oohh I wanna believe this SOOO MUCH!!!!!!! I feel like I'm not retaining anything! I don't do well in the practice questions! ooh my world! :(

but THANKS THO!!!!!!

Don't worry, you will be fine. Just remember you have learnt so much this far, you can do it...Make sure to practice some questions daily between 25-50 questions (Saunders and NCLEX 3000 helped me), know your lab values- normal and abnormals, you are already prepared...and please do not stay up to study the night before......GOOD LUCK!!!!

Thanks a lot, phillylove! I plan to study to the best of my abilities!!! My issue is with Pharm, I can't really sit on my butt and wish that I don't get any Pharm questions on that, because I might be badly surprised! I'm just trying to do my best in that area.

I practice with Self-Check practice questions from the learningext review course..a total of 20-40 a day, and I'm not doing all that good...scoring low 60's and most recently 45's. I'm quite scared about those scores, but I'm hoping that I learn from the rationales provided :)

I actually used Kaplan for my review, and the way they laid out their medication section was really helpful to me. They recommended studying by class, and knowing all major side effects and nursing implications for the classes, rather than every single individual drug. This was extremely helpful and it really worked on my NCLEX, because if I knew what class the medication was in, I knew what side effects to expect and what would be concerning to me. I took the NCLEX on Monday and had about 10 medication questions, ALL pertaining to adverse versus expected effects. By studying this way, I felt very confident in my medication/pharmacology NCLEX questions. I passed with 75 questions. Good luck to you!!! :)

THANKS, RachelW! I scheduled this morning for 16th of July, 2012 (8am)! OOHHH LORD, it just got REAL!

I just rented La Charity from Barnes and Noble..hopefully I can answer some questions from it before the 16th!

I took the test at the end of December, did not pass. Someone posted this book as a suggestion, I bought it and went through it and took the test again on 6/12 I am now an LPN. Thank God, I prayed a lot, when I looked on my state BON this morning broke down in tears.

Everyone on this site is awesome. Don't give up.

Here's the book: Comprehensive review for Nclex PN - Pearson Reviews and Rationales - Second Edition 978-0-13-262141-0

I bought it on Amazon.

Thanks, skbgirl! But I'm actually preparing for NCLEX-RN exam. But I will definitely make use of PDA, even if it's for one day!

Random: Do you guys act "crazy" while studying? Be it when you are answering practice questions or just reading materials? "Crazy" like talking to yourself and trying to be a professor to your self (if that makes sense..oooh...NCLEX is making me have Broca's aphasia! Lol!)? I caught myself doing it few minutes ago, and I was like "Jess, you are definitely going nuts!" :eek:

NCBSN's learningext: Lesson 7: Reduction of Risk Potential (It's sooo long, so I did half of it...continue again early this morning!)

Kaplan's Practice, Strategies and Review Book: I did 100 Practice Questions (scored 72/100 :banghead:)

Since today, I've been reading some posts from today's NCLEX takers..and it seems like Infection Control is the highest thing! Thus, now I'm listening to Kaplan MP3 format lessons on Infection Control.

After this, it's time to brush my teeth, wash my face and time to snoooozzzzeeee!

Good night, everyone!!

Today was mostly wasted! I didn't read anything. I barely listened to Kaplan MP3 lessons. I started practice questions from NCBSN's review course (Question Bank of 20 questions each)..

ALL Topics V... 60%

ALL Topics VI.. 45% :crying2:

ALL Topics VII... 70% ( My VERY FIRST highest score ever! :yeah:)

I'm still up..and it's 3.12am!! I'm determined to answer the WHOLE Question Bank 1 before bed tonight!
