  1. Does anyone here who use kaplan RN qbank for nclex? Is this course online good for 3mos or does it make any difference if u can just have it 4 weeks bfore the exam?

    Hey jessa11, the kaplan qbank is good for 3 if you decide to take it 4 weeks prior to your exam you can, so as long as it is within the 3 month period. Goodluck!

    Your welcome, and it was challenging, I am waiting for the results in the mail. The style of the question I felt was similar to kaplan.

    hello s30zurfing

    Hey jessa11, I started from 38-58, then 60, and one exam I reached 72, the lowest was 22. And I know how you feel, but keep practicing answering questions and rationales. And I recommend PDA lacharity & nclex 3500 for SATA and client needs and if you have more time Saunders 5th edition for client needs but I only did a few for those and brush up on content. My mom just found out yesterday on the BON website that I passed. It still has not hit me yet, I want to see the actual results in the mail, ha. But I have also looked on the BON website and saw my name, did the pvt trick and it won't let me register to pay. GOODLUCK to you and you can do it!

    Don't worry so much about your scores but just read the rationales and learn how to answer the questions. I only studied for a week and only used Kaplan Q banks and Question trainers right before my NCLEX and passed with 75 questions. I didn't go over content or any of that stuff I just learned from doing the Kaplan questions.

    Q1 - 58%
    Q2 - 60%
    Q3 - 50%
    Q4 - 56%
    Q5 - didn't do was lazy
    Q6 -56%
    Q7 - 50% Did not finish this I stopped at question 215 because I started Q7 the night before Nclex at 9pm and when it was 4am I was not done so I needed to get 3 hours of sleep and take my NCLEX at 8AM. So basically I did Q7 but didn't finish and did't even look over the rationales for what I did because I needed to go to sleep.

    As for the Q banks my average percentage is 50% and I only did 500 questions out of the 1172 questions available. Again I ran out of time to do questions.

    I felt kaplan prepared me how to answer the questions because I didn't know much content honestly. Any content that I learend was from doing Kaplan questions for 1 week. Kaplan question trainer 6 and 7 were really hard. Nclex questions were wayyyyyy easier.

    HI HUNG,

    THANK YOU so much for ur advice, i feel better knowing that im not the only one who experienced getting below 60 percent in Qbank, my exam will be on 24th of April and i just enrolled 1 week ago. I am convinced to do the Qt trainers after i finish the Qbank practice test. My only problem is where to download and get the kaplan Qt trainers since i only enrolled in kaplan Qbank. Anyway thank you soo much ...

    wow that was great. Congratulations , thank you for uplifting my spirit.. I will try harder and never give up just like u did. I already finish answering the La charity and had saunders as well. I'll just have to focus more in my Qbank and do the Qt trainers after...
