    2 days before the test I kinda got like that, and the day before I took the test I did 100 questions and was the same way. It's just burnout, and I think it means you're ready to take the test!

    few days or a week before the test.. put away those review materials and take some time to relax and treat yourself. you've done your part and prepared well. you need to relax... feel confident.

    When I studied for the NCLEX-RN I did and reviewed the questions and rationales. I was burned out but I would only do 100-150 questions perr day and once I answered and reviewed the questions and rationales I would do something else for the day and maybe if I was up to it at night review a small content material about a specific subject, disease or lab, but not always.

    Good Luck, I passed with 83-85 questions on the first try and my Kaplan scores were 58-65.70%. Interestingly enough. The day after I took the NCLEX, i did a 75 question test just for kicks and I got a 81% The stress was off so I was able to focus. I personally found that the questions on the NCLEX were not any more difficult than the Kaplan questions

    Thanks so much for your input. I have been doing Kaplan questions like crazy. I also attended the in class Kaplan review. I am learning a ton, and feeling more comfortable with the answering of the Kaplan questions, but my score seems to hover around hi 50 % and low 60 %. It is comforting to hear your scores were not too much higher. I scored very high on prioritization and delegation and I am awesome at Psychosocial, so I am counting on that to increase my scores.

    Any other advice, please let me know

    When you're saying you did Kaplan... do you mean you did the questions in the Kaplan book? Or are you talking about the online review class or the other class you can take? Sorry I'm confused.

    So wait..... you spent over 600 dollars preparing for this exam through Kaplan?

    I took the kaplan review class along with the qbank. Let me just say dont worry about the scores. I was getting between 65% and up. Make sure to do the 7 trainers. Trainer 1-3 i got 58-61, trainer 6 64% trainer 7 67%. focus on the reason the question is right. I took the board this pass sunday with 76 questions all priority and i pass. You can do .

    hi to those who have passed and have used the kaplan question trainer and qbank, if you can sell these materials to me i would be very willing to buy it, but hopefully with a much lower price because there's no way i can afford the it through the kaplan site because its too expensive for me, i've heard that these materials are the best to use to prepare for the exam.
