My former classmates who have passed the NCLEX said that 100 questions a day is good. Is that a standard that most people studying go by? Anyone surpassing 100? Do you find that the content staying with you once you go over 100? Thanks in advance for your comments!

You shouldn't be doing so many that your eyes are blurring and you're falling asleep over the book. Do whatever number you can do in a somewhat alert manner and feel comfortable with.

hi, i would suggest you do according to how much you can understand. its not the many questions you do in a day that matters its the much information you can retain. i personally i would do 200 a day, but i would break them down in 50s, that way i would understand more.

gudluck in your studying.

Hi excelsiornurse:),

Personally, I believe 100 a day is good because you need to review each and every question reading each rationale why the answer was right or wrong. You want to be able to retain what you're learning.:up: Good Luck!

I believe kaplan says 150 a day. I did 250 a day for 3 weeks but don't study if you don't feel like studying or are too tired because you would just be wasting your time. Nothings sticks to a tired brain.
