    I too had 75 questions. I thought for sure I failed with all the SATA questions that I got. Take a deep breath. Let it out. And Relax. More then likely you passed. It seems as if more pass at 75 questions then fail. I know its hard to do, but there is nothing you can do now. When you read those 4 sweet little letters that say PASS on your quick results...all your emotions will sweep over you. Your finally done...Your a nurse! Good luck!

    He may be a junior senator for the state of illinois now, but he was in the Illinois state senate before he ran for the US Senate. So he did have a hand in what our situation is like now. Dont get me wrong I do like Obama. I come from a working class family, rooted in unions. I am hoping that he does get elected as President because I dont think our country can go through another 8 years like we just have. Can it get worse? Lord I hope not.

    I live in north central IL and the area seems to pay new grad rns anywhere from 19 to 22 per hour base pay and then most of the hospitals pay 3 dollar shift diff for midnights. Its not bad for the area since the cost of living is lower then Chicago.

    As you can probably see I live in a rural area. I will have to travel 150 miles to the testing center in Denver. Of course I travelled 110 miles to attend classes! No big deal.... My test date is July 10th. When did you test?:spin:

    I tested on Fri the 13th of June.

    I traveled about 60-65 miles away. That was the nearest testing center. I had to wait for 3 weeks till I could test at that center.

    I took mine on June 13th and still have not gotten my paperwork yet. I got my unofficial results with Pearson Vue, but nothing from the BON yet. I checked their website to see if anything was on there and its not yet. So if anyone has the answer to this question...help us out! lsebeg:

    Has anyone used the online NCSBN course questions? www.learningext.com If so, how did they compare to the actual NCLEX questions? I'm hoping they are pretty close, since it is written by the same people that make NCLEX. Someone I knew told me she saw some of the same questions pop up on her NCLEX, and I was wondering if anyone else had a similar experience?
    I had the 3 week version of it. I liked it as another additional resource to study with. I did all of the sections and found some of it to be similar. I also used Saunders for content info and Kaplan book and CD for how to interpret what the question is looking for. Its all about what helps you as a person. Not one NCLEX test is the same. When I took mine, a week and a half ago, some of the questions I got were way out there. I had 75 questions and passed. I think that all the repetition of questions that I did helped me. I learn by doing. Some people learn by hearing it, or reading it. So it just depends on how you learn.

    I didnt take a live face to face review. I think it is all in how you study and how you learn. What type of learner are you? DO you learn by reading, hearing it in front of you, applying it with programs? I had the Kaplan review book, I read some of their strategies and tips, did the 180 practice test CD that came with the book. I used Saunders for repetition and for content. If there was an area that I forgot, I would read the rationales. It was a good refresher. I passed with 75 questions. I dont think anyone can take that test and feel 100% prepared. You never know what kind of questions it is gonna throw at you. Sometimes you have to make an educated guess. If you can get it down to 2 choices then you have a 50-50 chance of getting it right. So, all in all, I would say that if you learn by hearing ppl lecture then do the live review, if you daze off and your mind wanders look into something else. Do what worked well for you in school.

    Congrats!! I had 75 questions and around 5 math questions. Sad part is I liked the Math even though I thought they were lower end questions...then I atleast knew I got a few right! LOL...I got a 853 on Hesi and passed the NCLEX with 75. I also did tons of review questions. repetition is the key!!
