Just ordered NCSBN course review

Students NCLEX

Published

Having the option to choose from a variety of review courses I finally decided to choose NCSBN course review.

The two main reason for choosing the latter one was the prize (although I would love to purchase the the Kaplan Qbanks I cannot afford around 500 dollars since I arleady purchased at least three NCLEX review books (Saunders fourth edition and Saunders Q&A in both the regular format and flash cards!) I also bought very expensive Judy Miller Cds (850 dollars ) which is great for the content and review. So I am literally broken in every sense. However I wanted to have an access to the newest questions so I thought that the site which makes the NCLEX would be a right place for it (my second reason) I came across on allnurses some positive comments about NCSBN.

I literally have so much of NCLEX material that I could open my own NCLEX review class. Haha, just a little of humor ... but seriously those of you who took the NCSBN review did you feel it helped you in some way to get through NCLEX? Anyway, I will update and let you know how is the review, and in mean time please share your thoughts if you are not to busy studing for NCLEX, good luck to us all!!!

I did like the NCSBN along with Saunders (used both for final and third time) but some people didn't. Everyone has different study styles so what works for one doesn't always work for another.

I too just ordered NCSBN yesterday. I have only started the diagnostic test and the first two units. I found out about it from a friend who found it very helpful and she passed in 75 questions. Since I have just started I dont know how I feel about it yet but I am going to stick with it. Good Luck Studying!

I know it was long. Hopefully I don't get 265 questions on NCLEX because I can't sit there and concentrate that long. We are doing about the same, I only got a 69%.

I didnt schedule it yet,I'm thinking in a month or so (in the mid of July or at the end) How about yourself?

BTW the diagnostic test was horrible to take,I barely finished it,I printed out the results today and I will go over it tonight.

I am taking it July 10th. It sounds like it is so far away but I feel the days are slipping away and it will be here before I know it. Hopefully it is enough time to study. I looked over diagnostic test briefly last night. I had a good day studying yesterday and then today I havent done much just didnt couldnt get myself motivated.

From reading the posts, seems like this is a good review. Have only seen positive remarks about it on the site in the past. Good luck to everyone as they prepare!
