Anyone used the Princeton NCLEX review?

  1. I have just finished up Mosby's online assess test that I did for 30 days with 94-99% probability of passing the NCLEX.

    Today, I took a Princeton NCLEX review of 162 questions. That was enough for me. There things on there that I had never heard of and the questions were nutty. They give no rationale, only if you answer right or wrong. I haven't a clue how I did but I feel if this is the way the board asks you questions, I'm dust.

    This is scary.

    I found that Mosby's, Saunders and Kaplan to be the best. I learned a lot from their rationales.

    Funny thing, I never see Princeton on the board as something everybody loved.

    What has been your experience?

    Thanks,

    Our instructor told us about the Princeton Review because some former students recommended it because they said that a lot of their questions were similar to the boards. I bought it and have taken their tests too and I agree with you that when you take the tests, there is no rational like there are on the other popular ones. I believe that you actually learn more from the other ones such as Mosby because it is very important to know why you missed a question so it can help you on future questions. I wasn't too impressed with it. Thanks, cp

    Well, after doing Mosby's, saunders, Kaplan, I was confused as to the wording of the questions. If this is what the NCLEX is like, I've got a problem.

    I really am worried now because I was frustrated with the questions. I did really well on the others, and with Princeton, you haven't a clue how you scored. It gives you a multitude of scores of handsful of questions, but not an overall score on the whole test.

    Thanks for replying.
