hello all. i did the pvt and it said "this candidate has previously passed this exam. a new appointment cannot be scheduled." that's the "good pop up", i'm assuming. i will keep you all posted on my offical results:d. i had 75 questions, one calc (for you future nclex test takers out there make sure you know your conversions) 13 sata, many infection control questions and lots of priority questions! i did not pay $500 for the kaplan class, i did hurst in march. if i could do it all over again i would pick kaplan! this test taking strategies are great! i used the 2011-2012 kaplan strategy book. mnemonics also helped me a lot (most of them i found on here). for example.......transmission-based precautions:airbornemy - measleschicken - chicken pox/varicellahez - herpez zostertbprivate room - negative pressure with 6-12 air exchanges/hrmask, n95 for tbdropletthink of spiderman!s - sepsiss - scarlet fevers - streptococcal pharyngitisp - parvovirus b19p - pneumoniap - pertussisi - influenzad - diptheria (pharyngeal)e - epiglottitisr - rubellam - mumpsm - meningitism - mycoplasma or meningeal pneumoniaan - adenovirusprivate room or cohortmaskcontact precautionmrs.weem - multidrug resistant organismr - respiratory infections - skin infections *w - wound infxne - enteric infxn - clostridium difficilee - eye infxn - conjunctivitisi hope this helps someone else. be blessed.
