Avoiding certain words in questions

  1. I'm trying to figure out which words do you avoid while taking the nclex. I had a list a read it in saunders but can't find it. Think if the answer had words like immediately and ?????. Can't remember others. help

    I'm not sure which words that you should avoid- but I would be very careful with words like always or never. These are almost 'absolute' words- they only lead you one way- something that is true 100% of the time, or false 100% of the time.

    My best advice is to read the entire question slowly, and reread it before you choose your answer.

    Good luck

    You mean reading the option slowly and reread it. Absolute words such as avoid and every are GENERALLY incorrect answer. GENERALLY means it is applicable for 95%. While answering question from Saunder CD, I have seen few correct answers which contain these absolute words
