    Click on assessment mode, then click on pre test, after you have taken it, you should click on scores, and then there will be an option that says calendar, there it will give you a schedule for 6 weeks! good luck!

    And this is listed on saunders 3rd edition cd?
    I still can't find it..all it says in step 1 is study mode, quiz mode, exam mode.
    and then in step 2: Level of congnitive ability, client needs, integrated process, content area.

    I used Sauders third edition to study for NCLEX-RN and passed the first time with 75 questions. I did analysis and application questions only which gave me a lot of practice with SATA(select all that apply) and priority and delegation questions which are key to being successful when taking the NCLEX. Hope this helps.

    I have the both the 3rd and the 4th edition of the saunders book and the study calendar is only available on the 4th one. If anyone wants i can upload a copy of my 6 weeks study calendar on here. The only thing is it wont be based on your scores that you got on the assessment test so there might be areas that i am weak in that you may neccesarily not be. But I looked at my friends calendar and then my own and to be honest the only difference i saw was that we werent reviewing systems on the same days (for example if in week 3, day 4 i was reviewing oncology she would be doing it in week 5, day 2 etc.) but everything i had she had. I dont know if it was coincidence. But anyway, if anyone would like a copy posted in this post just let me know. If not i wish you guys all the best on your NCLEX.

    The study calendar will cover the entire book in six weeks regardless of your scores. The primary difference seems to be the order of chapters studied and how they are paired together.

    It's good to give you a jumping off point and provide some structure with studying but it's not so personalized that it will really help you focus on your weak areas.
