    RUN reviewers are the same reviewers in UP and UST. i havent attended the class tho. review your options. attend a live review, do online class (NCSBN, Kaplan, Mosby, ETC ETC), or study on your own phase (Suzanne's Plan or own plan:P) see what is best for yah....

    PS:
    i too graduated on the same year! classmate!!!!:P

    Worst possible mistake that you can make at this time is to use all four books to prepare. Use one and then see what else that you need.

    Everytime that I have seen students that did not pass the exam, and they had alphabet letters of all of the books that they used. It definitely does not help.

    Check out the stickies at the top of this forum for more advice for you.

    Also moved thread to the Philippine Forum since it is specific to the Philippines and their centers.

    I found a lot of errors in the Exam Cram NCLEX book. From the lab values up to the rationales in the review questions. Stay away from this book. It will just confuse you. I regretted buying it. Good thing it's not that expensive in the local bookstore.

    We do have an NCLEX Forum here to help you prepare for that exam. Preparation is no different, no matter where you trained. Or when you trained.

    Hi, I graduated in 1996, haven't worked as a nurse either. I just passed the exam and I am so thankful for everyone here in allnurses esp Suzanne for guiding me, I have been ignorant about almost everything before. Try Suzanne's study tips. What I did was read Saunders compre book, one book is enough, then the cd, review mode first then the exam mode.
