I just got home from taking the NCLEX RN. It was the most stressful test I have ever taken in my life. I got all of the 265 questions and sat in the testing center for 5 hours. As soon as I left, I felt like I had completely bombed that test. I always hear about the pearson vue trick so I decided to try it when I got home because well lets face it, I couldn't handle the anxiety. I needed to know something. 🤷‍♀️ So I put in my credit and went all the way to the end to get this pop up, "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time." Now I know that everyone says that is the good pop up, but I just don't know if its real or not! I will say a little about my exam. I had maybe 30 SATA give or take, but the rest...oh my goodness...priority, what do you do next, 4 math questions, ekg, etc. My test was EVERYWHERE. What is your experience? What do you think?😨

Update!!!!

I found out this morning that I PASSED!!!!! I still don't believe it but my license posted the very next day on the board of nursing! There were a few things that I did to prepare for this exam. First and foremost, UWORLD. I SWEAR by it. I used uworld when I studied for my LPN exam and I also used it to study for the RN. I did the entire 2500+ questions from the qbank and went over every single rationale. I also got myself a notebook and wrote the rationales down just because writing helped me remember better. I even noticed that some of the questions I took during my studies, just so happened to be on the exam! UWORLD is very closely related to the NCLEX.

 One other thing I recommend is the Hurst review. I know many people have mixed feelings about the Hurst but honestly, it gave me the right amount of information needed to be able to answer questions on the test. I took the online live review with hurst. Once I completed that review, I had the option to go back and listen to the videos over again. If I didn't understand anything, I would listen to that section until I understood. Its all about repetition. I think doing as many questions as you can handle a day is truly what helped me. I was taking anywhere from about 150-200 questions a day. Now that isn't the magic number of questions to do, that is just what I felt I needed to do. I have faith in everyone that takes this test. It can be conquered! You can do it! 🙏

Hi OP! I took my exam today. Like your experience, I answered 265 questions in 5 hours. I felt sick afterwards and thought I could have done better. I went home, cried my heart out, and did the PVT Trick. I got a good pop up but I don't want to get my hopes up. It is the only ray of sunshine I have right now. I expect the worse but I hope the PVT is accurate. 😞

Did you use a legit payment info? Or changed expiration etc? For the PVT?
