Has anyone here ever used Medpreps to study for NCLEX-RN? I ran across it this morning, it's not expensive. $30 for 1 mo. $50 2 mo. and $60 for 3 mo.

I have never heard of that before. I hope you plan to use some other test prep resources because I just looked this up and it looks as if it's just practice tests. Honestly, I wouldn't waste my money because you can get so many practice questions and exams from Saunders, Kaplan, and so many others. If you have facebook, add NCLEX pages and "like" NCLEX groups to get constant practice questions on your newsfeed for practice. This helped me a lot. Download NCLEX apps on your phone too, the free ones! They have practice questions, a limited number of them, but hey it's free practice questions!

Also, when studying for the NCLEX you want to get tips and learn the strategies on HOW to answer the questions. I used Kaplan and only Kaplan, and I just passed a little over a week ago! I know I passed because I used what Kaplan teaches you: strategies to use to tackle every NCLEX question. Even if you know nothing about the topic of the question, those strategies are what help you to eliminate answers. It's super helpful and I strongly recommend it.

If you can't afford the Kaplan course, I'd still get these books I studied from:

1. Kaplan NCLEX-RN Content Review Guide 2nd Ed. (available on Amazon for about $30). It's general review of nursing content in all NCLEX categories of client needs. This book is great if you just need refreshers.

2. Kaplan NCLEX-RN Strategies, Practice, and Review. This book actually goes over each strategy and NCLEX tips, then has you practice a couple questions and goes over them with you. It's actually very handy! There's also practice quizzes after each chapter and then a practice exam at the end. If you get any book at all, THIS IS THE ONE TO GET!! I got the 2012-2013 edition at my library and checked it out for a month, so I didn't pay for this at all. I'd check your library to see if they have a version.

I hope this helps get you more practice. I wouldn't waste money on practice tests because you can get practice questions free from many places. However, if you can afford it, by all means give it a try! Just remember, the NCLEX is expecting more than just nurses doing practice questions. You need to know HOW to think like a nurse and answer the questions not based on just nursing school knowledge. So pick the exam prep book, tools, etc. that you think will work for you.

Best of luck to you :)

I was going to buy that Med Prep NCLEX review online but I was not sure if this will help us.
