How I prepared for NCLEX and passed

  1. Hi!
    I failed nclex first time with 265 Q. For the second time, I first used hurst review, it gave me basic understanding of the topics. But on all 4 assessments I did not get passing score, so I purchased UWORLD. I finished all the questions and both assessments. On all practice assessments I scored about an average. On some test I did scored in low 40s. I did at least 100-150 Q day and read rational for all those Q. I started with Pharm Q and read rational on right and wrong selections. By doing pharm first, it helped me answer the questions in other sections as well. I completed all the Q by the subjects in UWORLD. I read rational on all the questions (even if I got the answer correct). I prepared the notes from these rationals and studied these notes for 3 days before my exam. (I prepared 144 pages note from hurst and UWORLD). This gave me confidence. I PASSED NCLEX with 75 Q the second time.


    You can also do it... don't give up hope. I wish best of luck to all the people who are preparing for NCLEX.

    Thank you for sharing your story! I also failed my first attempt with 265 questions, and am planning to retake my exam sometime in the next month or so. Hearing about the success stories of others keeps me motivated. Congrats on passing!
