I enrolled in kaplan qbank pn last month. I graduated in February, ATI exit exam at 99% passing NCLEX, GPA at 3.8. I have been practicing exam cram, nclex 3000, Saunders, ATI, 250 SATA Lippicot. I feel I'm good at content and meds, But OMG, when I do kaplan questions, sometimes I have no clue, my lowest is 56% and highest is 72% (been doing about 15 tests, 50 questions/each, I took about 80% questions) Kaplan questions made me feel that I'm so stupid. I'm nervous, my test day is 4/24, but I feel so scare with the scores like this since everyone said kaplan is similar to nclex. Please let me know if I'm ready or not?

I took it Friday - the computer shut off at 75 and I got the good pop up. Like you, I graduated with a high gpa (3.9) and got a 99% chance on exit ATI. I took Kaplan and only finished about 70% of the questions. My overall average was 71%, but I got 55% on a couple of the Qbank tests. Kaplan made me feel pretty dumb sometimes, especially after getting 90's throughout school. It's designed to be hard though, and I was told that everybody gets only 50% correct on NCLEX. I didn't do any of the other exam preps that you listed. If I were you, I would go over infection control, kaplan rules, and labs again. And it sounds like you will do just fine. :)
did you have a lot SATA questions? How hard are they? I'm scare:(
I had about 20, and I didn't think they were as hard as Kaplan SATA. I don't know if it's true or not, but I've heard that the more SATA you get, the better you're doing. Everybody I know who passed with 75 had 15-20 SATA. I was happy whenever I got a SATA. I just treated each answer choice as a T/F and a lot of them seemed pretty obvious to me.
NLCEX sata questions are nothing like the kaplan or any other reviews. the actual test is simple and to the point. do not fear them
