I am doing the online version of Kaplan and I am consistently getting 69% on the QBank tests...does anybody know if this translates into a fair chance of passing the NCLEX or a horrible chance?

Kaplan's goal is for you to score higher than 65%

higher than a 65% on their practice tests? does that imply a decent chance of passing the nclex? or they want you to get higher that 65% on the nclex?

I've been doing Kaplan trainers and some of the qbanks but can get no more than 55%. Does this mean I will fail the nclex?

I used all the q-bank questions and averaged 62%.

I passed the NCLEX with 75 questions.

I was told by my in class Kaplan instructor that a score of 57-62% is good, and that a 65% reflects a 95% pass ratio on NCLEX. I haven't taken boards yet, and I keep scoring in that range on the q-bank and question trainers so we will see how it all goes. Good luck!

69% is awesome! You will do fine. I think I averaged in low 60's (two years ago with Kaplan). I passed first time with 75 questions. You will be fine...Congrats in advance!!!

I am currently taking the Kaplan and the instructor informed us that if we do not consistantly get a 65% on all, re-book it and don't take it.

After coming back to the real world, I have read many responses on other threads that this is NOT true. You CAN pass with a lower grade.

A 65% on the Kaplan represents an A. Middle to low 50's represent a low B to a C.

There are good points and silly points they give out but in all honesty, I have found their test taking stratigies to be very effective in getting the right answer. I still have lots of studying to do before the test in a week but I feel confident enough that I will pass and its important to keep that focus.

So you guys out there who are stressing because your only getting 58's on the Kaplan............I have absolutely no doubt you will pass! Be confident going in to the test room, eat TONS of sugar to keep your mind alert ( Lifesavers are excellent unless of course your a diabetic)!!! :) and sugar ingested just before a long test has been proven to enhance test taking, don't even crack a book the day before-- have a relaxing day and have fun!!!

Get to bed at a decent hour and deep breathe, close your eyes, focus, put in ear plugs when you take your test and your chances are greatly increased.

Good luck to all!!!!!!!!!!
