    When I took NCLEX, I didn't take a review course. I used Saunders book et CD and Mosby's online tests for the NCLEX. I passed the first time.

    A friend of mine took the review class and failed NCLEX the first time she took it. Another friend failed 2 xs. He got ALL 265 questions every time. He passed on the 3rd attempt.

    Good luck!!

    I didn't take a review course either....I also used Saunders and the HESI.....I used the CD's and did a system a day for 2 weeks, took the weekend off and on Monday, passed NCLEX the first time.....if you average between 60-70% on the CD's, you will be just fine.....

    Another good resource to use is the review notecards you can buy at any bookstore (they are on a large silver ring), they are convenient and helpful....

    GOOD LUCK!!!! Remember, the light at the end of the tunnel is not a train....

    Have moved your post to the NCLEX forum where there is much already written on hints and tips for studying. Good luck

    why quit if you can take a month to 3 months break with or without pay then you can go back after the test. Best of luck looking for the best review center. I will likely to ask my school or PRC for accredited nursing review as most of the review centers in the philippines cater NCLEX< CGFNS< IETS and TOEFL.

    just to add there is a thread in the Philippine forum regarding review centers, Can do on own as long as you make your own plan, also Suzanne one of the mods on here has done a plan which is free and can be found in the sticky titled new revised first tip
