    Hey kababayan. I am using Hurst online review and have used Kaplan. There is a free link of Kaplan Qtrainers on this site. It's almost exactly the same with just a few changes. Kaplan videos are not so great as Hurst's, IMO. Just purchase the Kaplan's Qbank. Good luck!

    Hi kababayan. CGFNS-CVS doesn't require you to have a license, they are just asking if you have one. I applied to them 6 months ago without taking the NLE back home. They waived the license requirement on my CGFNS account. I got my eligibility from NY bon about a week ago. Good luck.

    I used the 4th edition of Saunders for the first 2 weeks of September. I would always fall asleep while reading that book. It's so overwhelming. After finishing about 75% of it, I realized that I just read it for fun, I didn't retain all the info like I wanted to. I got worried, as I felt like I was still weak on my content. So, I purchased the Hurst review. I watched all the videos and reviewed the notes and the 5th day materials for the last 2 weeks of September. This month, I'm going over Saunders again. I must say.. It's so much fun and easier to study it now.

    I have both books. IMO, Prentice hall has good info but way too much. Saunders breaks everything down and will prepare you well for the test. Saunders type questions are very rare though. I would also suggest you get the Prioritization, delegation and assignment by Lacharity ($24) and use the free Kaplan Qtrainers (slideshare). You can find the link on this site. Best of luck!

    Me too. I didn't take the NLE because I don't have a plan to practice there. Good thing NY BON doesn't require a SSN as I am not a citizen yet. I got my eligibility letter from them today and I will be scheduling to sit for Nclex very soon. You're right, methylorange. CA BON does require you to have a SSN.

    I will keep that in mind. Thanks for the advice, keldel. I already printed that out hihi I love it.

    Nope! You don't need to take the NLE. My friend who is also a US citizen who graduated in the philippines took the Nclex two months ago in CA without taking the NLE. Good luck!

    Wow! I have all the materials you have mentioned, thanks to allnurses.com. What a relief.. I've been studying since August and I'm planning to take the Nclex in November. I used kaplan for the whole month of August. I finished their course book, did 89% of the Q bank and took the first 2 Q trainers. I'm saving the Q trainers 3-7 until I i know the core content "without a doubt and hesitation". I have read about 70% of the Saunders 4th edition along with the Hurst review book and Kaplan strategies in September. This month, I've been using Hurst and I'm almost done watching the videos and the 5th day materials. Then, I will start practicing questions using Lacharity, NCLEX 3500 and Exam Cram until the I take the beast. ) and study all the rationales. But.. I still feel unconfident ( Maybe it's just my anxiety kicking in as I just got my eligibilty today. I know I still have a month to study and I'm trying to stay positive. But it's really, really hard. Oh well..

    Thank you so much. I'm so glad I found your thread. I'm happy for you. You should go out and celebrate!!
