Kaplan NCLEX-RN Strategy Practice Exam

Posted

I just bought the Kaplan blue book 2008-2009 edition. I just completed the 180 question practice test on the CD-ROM and scored a 78%. Would you say that it good? I'm curious to know what others scored also.

I didn't take that test but am using the Kaplan online complete and I know for all the question trainer tests they tell you to try to get at least 65% so I think your score is fabulous. :D

I didn't take a review course. I read this book from cover to cover and helped me pass NCLEX!

Yes, your score is REALLY REALLY good! I scored 69% on the CD and passed NCLEX with 85 questions.

I just finished the 180 test also and scored a 68%. I'm worried..my q-bank average so far is only a 60% but I don't take the nclex until July 8 so I have a little more time. Haven't done q-trainer 7 and 8 yet. I think I was supposed to do those before starting the qbank...oh well. :confused:

I used the CD and got a 74% and passed the NCLEX with 75 questions. I think the key to the NCLEX is repetition of questions that you do to practice and understanding what the question is asking.

Your Kaplan CD score and your qbank cumulative are pretty good. I only got a cumulative score of 57% on Qbanks and passed NCLEX!

hello every body....I have a big preocupation because I purchase the nclex rn extrategy book 2007-2008 and I want to know how useful coul be if I take the course book too because have meny doubt concerning my preparation.any one know if is just for extrategy too or if it have any thing ealse like important topics.please some boby healpme......tahnkyou:no::bluecry1:

A year ago I found some very useful questions on this site from the NCLEX exam. I think it was from Kaplan. Can you tell me where I can find those questions again?

Best thing to do is a search trying to pinpoint what you want.

I took the same 180 question exam as well, did a 68%. Have alternated on different kaplan exams between 73(max) and 63(min) Really pray this gets me past the boards. Talk about anxiety. Would provide updates on exam outcome soon.

When do you take the boards? Also, how long did you study before taking the exam?

Thanks

Looking to take it in the next two-three weeks depending on when I get the ATT papers. Length of prep. varies from person to person depending on your situation. But normally, once your practice exam scores(Kaplan, ATI etc) begin ranging between 65%-75,80%, you're in position to take a shot at the boards. This is by no means a "golden rule" nor a guarantee you'll pass, just as a lesser score does not rule you out either. There have been exceptions. In determining your readiness however, these are things to consider.

I'm wondering if the scores are still valid. Got a 70% on the 180 question exam in the Kaplan 2011 strategies book. Still got a few weeks to go before NCLEX. Hoping I'm still in a good position!

In the 2011-2012 book, I scored 71% on the CD, 79% on the book and got 64% on Question Trainer 7. Passed with 75 questions over the weekend.

Also used the Kaplan Course Book and Kaplan Drug Cards. I didn't take the Kaplan course however. I'm just a huge fan of Kaplan after I used pretty much only their strategy book to pass the PN exam with 85 questions.

Sorry,

Are you talking about 'The RN course book". If that is the one you referring to, it is not easy to study. Please let me know.
