Good advice for all test takers, if you don't know it the day before the test, you aren't going to suddenly "get it" the day before. I did review lab values, finished my Hurst test and watched the test review from the "5th day" CD that came with the review, but that was for entertainment purposes (Marlene Hurst is a riot) and due to not being able to sleep. I would add to get to the testing center early, relax in the parking lot or nearby park, breath in ... breath out, listen to some EASY music, relaxation CD, or the birds ... RELAX. Remember, they know you don't have 5 years of nursing experience (if you do forget the "real world"), the test is focused on the base knowledge of a BRAND NEW NURSE.
I will echo the other comments: know your priorities, Maslow's, Infection Control, and basic drug categories/uses/side effects, scope of practice. Unlike our school tests, don't be afraid to call the Dr. IMO the test questions weren't that hard, the answers were very close and some didn't have a "throw away" so you have to read the options very closely.
Lastly, I looked up some statistics the other night. In 2008 129,121 US Educated First Time Candidates tested 86.7% passed, the 2009 first quarter results are 31,063 candidates 88.07% passed first time. This is from BSN, ADN, Diploma and even "Invalid or Special Programs" (whatever that means). The point is that this test has a quite high pass rate. https://www.ncsbn.org/1237.htm
