    I also took mine today. I got maybe 10 SATA's and a dozen or so priority questions. Seemed like more meds than I would have liked. Also seemed like alot of teaching and diet questions. Got the blue screen at 75 questions. My last question seemed easy to me and I know I got it right. Confuses me, either way. I did get the good pop-up though and can't seem to quit checking it, as if could change. But you with all those SATA's and priority questions should feel confident! I am sure you did great!

    Waiting for an update...

    I suggest using a variety of different study tools. The review programs tend to be a little redundant and relying on "strategy" to pass will not help. You've got to know the content. Using a variety helps you to stop thinking only "strategy" and start thinking "what do I KNOW about this?" I took the Hurst review at my school and didn't really get much from it. I had the Saunders question bank, Lippencott's NCLEX 4000, and a Prentice Hall review book/CD. Then I came across the Kaplan tests online for free and that really was my favorite. The questions were much harder than the others, and harder than I saw on the NCLEX. Good luck studying and do lots of it!!!

    In some cases, maybe not a sign at all, when i took my NCLEX end of Dec. I only had 7 SATA, i finished with 86 questions and i was so lucky because that was the first and last time for me.
