Having a hard time to concentrating to study for NCLEX... Any suggestions?

  1. Hi everyone,

    I just graduated about 3 weeks ago & Im having the hardest time concentrating. I know I need to study hard & "get on it" but I feel every time I study that I will never retain this.. Do you guys have any suggestions on studying?? Hours/days?? Just an NCLEX book & review questions??? HELP~!!!!!!

    I would suggest keep practising questions and reading the rationale even if you got it right. Allocate 2-3 hours a day

    Thanks! 2-3 is great to hear!!! i read somewhere like 9 hours a day.. WHAT!!!! That's crazy. I've been doing 3 hours in the morning and maybe 1 hour in the afternoon. It gets really tiring after awhile and I feel like Im just reading stuff & nothing is processing!

    Just keep at it, eventually you'll retain the information, but 9 hours a day? I don't think you'll have a problem with NCLEX. lol Your'e probably just second guessing yourself, like I did before I took NCLEX. The important thing is to just study until you are confident before walking in that room to take boards, to decrease anxiety. Don't want to have a panic attack while taking your exam. lol
