Kaplan Qtrainers 6 & 7 feels like a STEEP uphill climb

Posted

Hi

Kaplan qtrainer 6 and 7 is very difficult and it really tests your critical thinking power.

Is there anyone here who actually finished qtrainer 6 or 7 on the suggested time? i find it impossible to critically think a very complex question for 1 minute for each question.

Never the less here are my scores.

Q1= 71

Q2= 77

Q3= 68

Q4= 65

Q5= 71

Q6= 69

Q7= 62

avg= 69

I got a 43% on qtrainer 7 topic prevention and detection of disease. this is really scaring me.

I still have 5 days before NCLEX, Should i take the exam or postpone it?

any advice? tips?

thank you

i think you ll pass... your scores are better than mine.. and i passed it the first time..

goodluck..

wow. thanks. what did you do after finishing the qtrainers?

Those are great scores! You're consistently getting above 60, and consistency is key.They say above 65 for q1-5 and above 60 for q6-7 is very good. Don't forget to take your last day off. You can do it!

thanks. that really helps. thanks for the reassurance. i feel so sad and blue for the low score i got on q7. Im reading the rationales now and if i just paid more attention, i should've gotten the right answer. Lesson learned.

thanks

wow. thanks. what did you do after finishing the qtrainers?

read the rationales... a week before my exam... from q1 to q7

lorodz- you are quite good. can i ask your local nle score if you wont mind?

and what school you studied nursing?

tnx. pinoy here ..

hello taimanov,

can you tell which cd you prepare for exam what stratergies used during exam?

for medication what you used to remember.

is mosby flash cards really good ? if you have can you share that.

i think you will do very well do not postpone it

Those are good scores. Just trust that you know the material and take the exam as scheduled. Make sure to take a day or two off just before the exam to rest and relax (if possible =-).

Good Luck.

to all the supportive people here and to all who have helped me in my quest in passing the NCLEX, i would like to THANK you all for helping me and being so supportive! this is a great, great supportive community!

(sorry for the late announcement) After a month of waiting, (results via snail mail-CABON) I found out that I passed NCLEX! :yeah:

computer stopped at 75th question! whew! as they've said, the questions were worded like the kaplan qtrainers 6 and 7!

what can i say? hmmm...oh passed the NCLEX by self review and lots of prayers. :yeah:

Don't get me wrong but i think the NCLEX is quite predictable if you pass or fail. As what have been posted here, you should aim for the the high level questions- the priority ones, there were questions that i am pretty sure of the answer (thanks to abc) then the next question would be a priority question on which the stem is in BOLD letters, if i am unsure of my answer the next question would be a knowledge based question (that means my previous answer was wrong). knowing how the NCLEX works and being aware of this pattern, it scared me, and i almost lost my focus. (deep breathing helped a lot)

Anyway, the last 3 questions were very, very odd! my exam ended with a weird knowledge based question about a certain drug.

once again thank you allnurses!
