hi i just wanna know guys if im the only one whose experience is but im studying for 2months now used saunders for content and kaplan for q&a... but it seems like i cant retain all d info from what i reviewd.. i understand them though but the thing is that i cant really memorized all d s/e, s/sx and all that stuffs... i don't know what is happening to me,... i took most of d QT exams in Kaplan...
I'm having the same problem
how can you manage it? how are you doing on tour exams?
Well for now I'm doing hurst-review which is all abt content, so I watch the videos over and over; until I understand the subject and can explain it to others. Then I do Kaplan questions. I found out that once u understand I can easily memorize.
Stress, perhaps? You probably need to take a break? Relax, take a little time off from studying; even if it's only for a few minutes or an hour inbetween studying. It might help. There's no way you are going to recall every single thing you studied. I have the same issue too after studying & before I took the exam. But, I told myself that I studied, I prepared, I did tons of questions everyday, and I prayed. I'll be okay and I was. Passed the exam at 78 questions. Anyway, just continue to study; memorized only labs and some stuff that you absolutely have to know by heart like certain medications. But mostly try to understand the content.
thank you so much for the advice.. yah maybe i really need a lil break im just probably stressing my self out to much and forcing myself to the fullest... im actually done taking most of the test in kaplan and my score arent that bad i think... im just reviewing all the stuff that I already studied and found out that i dont remember them as much wen i studied them before.. by the way this is my scores:
QT6 64% and
You shouldn't feel like you have to memorize EVERY LITTLE THING. It's impossible, so don't be too hard on yourself. As long as you have an overall grasp of the disease and know what's significant about it... you'll be fine. Think about it, how many different/specific things can the NCLEX ask you in 75-265 questions?
My advice would be to know prioritization, doing as many questions as possible everyday, study test-taking strategies. Make sure you read and understand the rationales. If there's something you don't know, look it up.
