50-60% on kaplan q bank. NCLEX 2tommorow.im scared

  1. i have consistently been getting 50% and 60% ish on my kaplan q bank questions.. of various topics...and with 50 questions... i got discouraged reading bout everyone else who has failed and who had to take it more than once.... do i have something to worry about??..im drained from studying... i have been studying little by little every day almost (5/6 days out of a week)..doing tests..memorizing labs...etc.. SINCE AUGUST..

    i am not the type to cram continuously.i have to look at stuff little by little.. im taking nclex tommorow at 8..and i can't seem to look at any more info..

    people at my school who took the test over the summer all passed and claimed that they got around the same percentages on their qbank ?'s. im confused... confident...but still scared and "iffy" bout passing


    any advice..or feedback?

    Yep - Rep is right. You're not going to cram a ton of knowledge into your head tonight anyway, so just relax and try to get a good night's sleep.

    Kaplan practice questions are among the toughest, so I wouldn't stress too much.

    You mentioned you have been studying since August and that means you are well prepared for the exam. You will do okay tomorrow.

    You're prepared. I was getting 50'-60's too in Kaplan and I still passed. Good luck tomorrow! Now rest up, no more studying and have a great's night sleep. You can do it!

    Please try to relax! You have prepared....now just go & do it! I honestly did not think it was that hard. I thought the exit HESI was much harder!
    I tried to really focus on the 1st 10-15 q's...I was told (don't know if its true or not) these set the direction your q's will take. Good luck & let us know when you pass!

    Good luck vic. Get a good nights rest and take your time tomorrow. I just took mine on Thurs. I studied a lot too. Just take your time and read the questions thoroughly and ask yourself what are they looking for? I wish you lots of luck. Let us know how you did.

    I didn't even do Q-bank. All I did from Kaplan was the question trainer 6 & 7. I used Saunder's instead and I passed. Don't stress......relax and good luck.

    Hang in there vIC!!! I had 128 questions with 4 of those darn "select all that apply"...I know exactly how you're feeling! I got tired & felt myself losing focus, too. I left feeling like I had guessed on alot of stuff, too. I think most of us walk away with that feeling. Take a few deep breathes, sit back & just relax for awhile...my prayers are with you! :angel2: :icon_hug:
