Hi Therese,

You absolutely do NOT need Kaplan to pass NCLEX! Took it twice & failed with Kaplan (1st @ 265, 2nd @ 135). Went my own path on the 3rd attempt & passed at 75. The strategies are great, but it's nothing you can't find in other books (i.e. Davis 2010). If you have the money, go for it, but rest assured, you DON'T need it to pass.

Most people find it useful, but you have to judge for yourself what is good for you.
