for those that failed the 1st time

  1. For those that failed the 1st NCLEX and passed the 2nd or 3rd time. What helped more. The extra studying or the previous experience and knowing what the questions would be like?

    Check out this thread. It's very similar to what you're asking.

    Good luck to you!

    I failed the 1st time, and am taking it again next week. I knew content, but did not know how to critically think the depth I was suppose to for nclex. Did you get back the print out of the test results from your BON? Well, it says to either reinforce more content (on the topics you got "below the passing leve"l on)......or that you know the content but need to work on critical thinking (if you were "near passing" on the majority). I dunno if it is just my state that narrows it down, or if all BON'S do that, but it really helped me. They were right...when i started kaplan this time around, my "content only" tests were all great scores, but my "application and analysis" levels were poor. Now that I brushed up on my critical thinking skills, my scores are up. Well, i guess I will see next week when I retest if what I am saying is true! LOL!
