HelpTaking the NCLEX for the second time in two weeks!

Posted

I took the NCLEX for the first time in July 2016, I honestly didn't feel prepared. I used ATI last time around and failed at 265 questions (worst 6 hours of my life). Now I'm scheduled to take my test again in two weeks, I did a three week review from ncsbn, and am now doing Uworld, where I'm currently at a 55%, but I just started and that's only 110 questions answered. What I'm wondering do y'all think this is enough to pass the NCLEX? Should I be doing more, honestly I'm scared to death of being in there taking another 6 hour test. ������

My test is on the 21st so a bit more than 2 weeks. I only got two weeks or less of actually studying though, due to family events.

set a schedule plan where u NEED to stick on it! 2 weeks is still good amount of time- HOLD every event you plan, GOAL IS TO PASS NCLEX.

-->>Finish Safety infection control, delegation management section, few of Fundamentals and Pharm. in U-World

-->> read the 35 pages review materials floating around here! 3-4x if you have time

-->>do SATA in U-world!!!

that will help you pass! remember quantity vs. quality-don't worry about your score or how many items you finish the important thing is you Understand the questions !

Goodluck!!

I've gotten to a 57% today for total score, and an scoring about 10 to 20% above the average on each test I've taken today. How is your Uworld going?

I got total score of 61% and 842 unused questions remaining. My score is based on the total. I did not repeat any questions or incorrect ones. I am trying to finish all the Q banks, make notes of the incorrect and correct items that I need to review more and after finishing the Q banks, I will answer the incorrect questions and read, review and understand the notes that I made. I am writing the rationales on the white bond paper and compiled them in a binder together with my other resources...

I've been marking all the ones I get wrong and also the ones I think I should review a bit more like the ones that were kind of a guess, then doing the same as you writing them down to review them more. í ½í¸€
