Help! want to prepare for Nclex-rn.

  1. Hello, I am a nurse from another country. I failed Nclex in 2008. I was devastated, didn't know what to do. I was broke financially too, was having family problem so couldnot concentrate to go for exam again. Now, after all these years I am thinking to prepare for exam, but I feel very confused where to start.
    I have books from kaplan and saunders( not current version). Will this two book be enough for my review? someone please guide me. Thank you.

    Hello. Although I am not aware of how the new changes will affect the study material presented in Saunders and Kaplan, I do think that Saunders is great for content material. Especially since you have been out of school for some time, it would be best if you took more than a month to prepare for the NCLEX to retain all the content material. It is definitely important to purchase the newest edition so that it reflects the latest test plan. Make sure you are practicing questions as you end up learning a lot of content through the rationales. Good luck to you!
