i took nclex on yesterday(july 18). i stopped at 83 questions. i tried the trick, wouldn't let me re-register but i'm still skeptical. guess i'll know for sure monday or tuesday. nclex was weird. the questions were so vague that it was kind of hard to discriminate the correct answer. well, on some at least. on some questions some of the answers were just far out there wrong and the correct answer was obvious. that only happened a few times though.

 

i had 12 sata,2 calculations, several prioritization, several pharmacology teaching, and 2-3 therapeutic response.

 

i took hurst review and used the kaplan strategies 2010 book and nclex 3500 for questions. i tried saunder's but found it useless. the questions most resembled the kaplan and nclex 3500. some may say that the 3500 questions are too easy but the content of the questions is very helpful.

I take mine on the 30th. I am a Canadian RN who originally did an associates degree then went back to get my BSN. I've been practicing in community nursing for most of the 12 years of my career with a bit of palliative in there. I have reviewed each of the content areas from NCLEX for a few days and done close to 4000 questions and the Kaplan review. I would be really embarrassed if I didn't pass this since I've been a nurse for some time now. Also, I need to pass in order to be able to commence my Masters this fall in the US. Cross your fingers and say a prayer. I do have one question for past test takers. Where you able to bring food with you for your break? Where you able to bring any food or drink in with you? Cheers and good luck to all.

You will get a small locker at the test center so could put a few small snacks and drinks in it but you will not be able to take anything into the room if I remember rightly

I graduated May 2009 and took boards for the first time June 24. I did the "tricks" that I heard about from this website and unfortunately all signs pointed to failed. I found out 2 days later that I did fail. I am scheduled to take boards again August 14, 2009!! and am really scared. I have practiced several nclex 3500, and nclex 4000 and was wondering if anyone in this support group had any advice!! I'm praying that I pass this time, but I feel like I'm missing some valuable information that could really make alot "click" for me! Thank you for any help!!
