    Elfchen-

    I definitely know how you feel. I felt like the days getting closer to my exam, I was doing worse on the practice questions. I think you are ready. One 43% won't hurt you. Have you finished all the question trainers? If you're getting 50-60+ I think you're set to go. I never made it higher than a 63 on the question trainers. Don't give up. You WILL PASS this time. Have faith. We're all pulling for you!

    Try to be positive first of all and there is nothing wrong with you! The NCLEX is really a challenge. Keep studying and keep your chin up.

    I highly suggest you really focused on question trainer 6 & 7.....a lot like NCLEX......think positive and be confident. Don't freak out when your taking it..........I did that first time and failed. Second time I took it, I was calm and focused.....and passed.............We are all here to support you......

    You're not alone. I'm also retaking mine for the second time on Oct. 12th. This past Friday and Saturday I had a headache that wouldn't go away. I think that it's because my mind is done studying. I'm going in this time, positive and calmer. I'll be praying for both of us.

    I know how you feel. If you are doing between 75% to 82% means you are doing good. I took the NCLEX -RN last Thursday I was doing between 63% to 75% on my Saunders Q & A. I don't know if I passed the test or not and I am waiting for the results in the coming days.

    You will do better when you take your exam this coming October 12th.

    Good luck!

    I made a 51% on question trainer #2 (one of the easiest ones!), but when I looked back on it a day or so later I remembered that I was tired & had alot on my mind that day. I was trying to push myself too hard...after that I tried to be rested & at ease when I studied. I did much better. Try not to be so hard on yourself...your other scores are pretty awesome for Kaplan questions! LOL a nice warm bubble bath works wonders for the body & soul!!! All my best to you! :angel2:

    I highly suggest do as much questions as you can. Take notes along the way. Understand each and every rationale even the right ones as well. Be confident. Eliminate what you know is not the answer. DO NOT read into the question. Try to inderstand and not memorize the question or answer except lab values. Ex: RBC is low......But why is it low? Or why is it high? Stuff like that. Don't just memorize the lab but also understand why the patient has low RBC. .....Know your canes, crutches, walkers. Know what angle the patient needs to hold it. Remember you want your patient to be safe..........Wishing you all the best......remember to eat fish the day before the exam. Don't freak out when you come to a question what you don't understand. Sometimes the answers will be there even if you had no clue what the heck they are asking you. Because no matter how much you study, there is always something you don't know or never even studied in nursing school that they will throw at you. When it comes to medications (which I hate so much) they like to ask what are you going to teach the patient. Know your s/s of the med and how you will teach the patient to look out for. Stuff like that......a lot of priority questions......Kaplan has a lot of those.....good luck guys....
