Not sure, but when I got home and check my first time through I never got a pop up and failed. Everyone I know that had pop ups pass. I would like to know what the results were. Please stay informed... I take mine FRIDAY!! For the second time:(

Did you feel you knew the questions? What did you see most of?

I took mine for the second time as well Monday. This time around I really felt prepared. Unfortunately the school I went to only wanted our money and not how to REALLY prep us for the exam. When I failed my first time I took on a different studying strategy and going into it a second time I felt so much more prepared. I saw a lot of SATA, few calculations &a lot of priority.

Good luck to you on Friday! You will do great, ABCs and Maslows helped me a TON with answering questions!

Yes! It says delivery successful when I log in, I too have been re-registering to see the pop up every time. I could pay for early results but even those are unofficial &it can't get more official than your name popping up on the BON. The anticipation is killing me, probably the longest week by far to go by

Just sitting here reading to pass the time but smiled when I read this thread. Oh how things have changed due to computers and automation :o) When I took boards we took 5 separate tests (Med - Surg - Pedi - OB - Psy) over a 3 days span -- 600 questions on each exam and you needed to answer 350 correct on each to pass that part. And you needed to pass all 5 exams to get your license. When you finally walked out of the exam area, your brain was fried and you didn't know up from down or right from left. Then the waiting started -- I took my boards in July and the letter giving me my results did not arrive until October. I was one of the lucky ones -- I passed all 5 exams on my first try -- but I knew those who did not.

My recommendations for taking your boards? First -- study every day for a couple of hours but NOT the evening before. Get a good 8 hours of sleep the night before your boards. To reduce stress make at least 2 practice drives to the testing site so you know the roads, traffic, and parking. Don't depend on a GPS to get you there because they make mistakes some times. Eat something before boards -- even if it is a cup of coffee and a donut. Your brain needs nutrition even if you are nauseated from the stress. Relax and deep breath -- but walk into the testing site with confidence. Don't believe everyone who tells you their computer shut off at X number and they passed -- or that if you had to answer the max you almost failed. And realize you are starting a career where you will learn something new almost everyday. I have been a nurse for -- aaahhhhemmm -- 40 yrs -- and I am still learning even as a DON.

I have mixed feelings about my program. I really liked the instructors but the material was to wide and not well explained. To much like high school and less concern on nclex. Some programs have a mandatory nclex training class for the students before graduation. Wish we could have.

I have studied 2 1/2 months and still can not get pass 60 - 70% on the practice test. I've considering rescheduling the test till next week but the family is a bit agitated at this point. Any advice?

I use Vipra medical website

Saunders review book & mainly focus on the study cd.

I do not if this makes the difference or not, the questions that I receive from both are new and not the questions I already had been through. When I get my score I range between 60 - 70%. If I had the question before I always range 80 - 90% sometimes higher.
