How many Qs did you practiced before NCLEX?

  1. Hello,
    Can you share how many questions did you practiced before NCLEX ? And did you pass or not with that amount?
    And one more thing. I read people passed NCLEX with correct answers on Kaplan 50-60% and Saunders 60-70%. Did anyone pass with lower scores?
    Thank you.

    Hi. I never kept track of how many questions I did overall..but I think it was in the 3000 range...since my school recommended we do at least 3000 questions before NCLEX. I did pass on the first time. Personally, I had 50's-60's in Kaplan..but I think there was someone in this forum that still passed the NCLEX with 40's-50's in Kaplan. Good luck!:spin:

    Just discipline yourself to do at least 100 questions/day. If you are that determined to pass ... you can surely make it!

    I did that for 2-3 months and it worked, I passed on first take. I used Saunders and Lippincott mainly as my CD review materials.

    Good luck to you. :spin:

    I did over 5000 the first time, the second time I did over 7000 questions, all the best to you.

    I did the 3000 questions on the cd of Saunders comprehensive 2nd edition and also 50% of Saunders Comprehensive 3rd ed ( 4,000 questions) and 50% of Saunders Q and A 3rd ed. But I did cover all the content areas using these 3 cds. I ranged from 60% to 70%.

    I passed my NCLEX-PN and NCLEX-RN on the first time.

    All the best for you!

    I dont remember exactly how many questions I did a day. Some days I did like 200 and others I did 100. I dont know if I passed NCLEX yet, so we will see if I did enough.

    I don't really think there's a magic number, but I think it's more how you use the questions to learn about (and then attack) your weaknesses. If you're consistently having trouble with a particular area, simply going back and spending time in review of content is your best bet.

    In other words, you can do 500 questions about cardiac meds, but if you've never sat down and systematically studied them, that might be a better use of your time.
