How do you know you are ready to take NCLEX?

Hello everyone!

I am studying to take the NCLEX soon and took a review class and it has been over for about 3 weeks. I have been studying their materials (as they stated) and doing questions on Saunders CD and the NCLEX RN Mastery on the iPad.

My test scores have not even been in the 70 percentile, however, I was wondering for those that are studying using Saunders (which I use to do questions) -- what percentages are you getting and what should I be getting to know that I am ready to take the test?

I am not using Kaplan, so let me just say that first so the Kaplan users dont waste their time chiming in on Kaplan materials that I have no access to.

Thank you for your comments!

i am just feeling like I will never be ready and need to already reschedule the test.

For a lot you never feel ready to sit the exam just know that in yourself you have prepared as best as you can

Thanks for commenting! I felt that way all through nursing school!! But I was wondering about people's percentages.

I didn't feel ready when I took it but I knew it was time (if that makes sense lol) I took it July 30th (so last week haha) and I scheduled it June 9th. So I bought this app called NCLEX Mastery and that's literally all I used. Did it for 6 weeks and when the date came close I was like well now or never! And the test was tricky and confusing but you just think back to clinicals and theory and your studies and make an educated guess.... Mine stopped at 85 so either I did great or terrible lol and since I'm in Cali I have to wait like two or more weeks to find out :/ but know ur labs and fundamentals. Study your weak areas. You have got this far! You can make it to the finish line! Good luck!
