Monday I take my NCLEX at 8am.

I am a nervous wreck! Everyone keeps saying "oh don't worry, you will pass!" or "you passed RRT boards, you can pass the nclex", but snap, what if I don't??

I am using Kaplan Q Bank and Hurst Review (mostly the videos). I was focused on content at first, but then my friend took hers and said it really didn't have much to do with content, more like prioritization and management. She passed by the way, but she literally brought her study materials with her to the beach (she is goals!). 

Anyway... what are some tips/tricks that you used to calm down before the exam. What did you do the day before the exam? And how do you slow yourself down when taking the exam? I noticed by taking my practice exams that I miss some questions because I read it too quickly and missed a word or something.

Thank you guys!

To slow myself down, I took my hand away from the mouse while I was reading the question. Once I read the question and answers several times, I put my hand back on the mouse and selected my answer. Practice it at home to get yourself used to the motion to take your hand away from the mouse. You can't speed through the question if your hand is not on the mouse.

I feel the same way, I had a bunch of SATA and some stuff out of left field, but, um, I feel like it was too easy? I went to 76 questions though... so I'm freakin' out! 

I got the "good" popup too, but also I know it isn't terribly reliable, and maybe I tried it too soon... ugh these 2 days are gonna be painful!!!

Good luck to you all. My friend recently took it and failed she got the bad pop up. So if you're getting the good one it's probably right. I'm still 1.5 years from taking mine but I know I'll feel the same.
