NCLEX-PN: 70% on practice tests, should I push my date back?

  1. Hey all, scheduled to take NCLEX-PN in 5 days (!)

    Got 70-71% on the two comprehensive practice tests I've taken.

    They say that's a failure.

    My friend was getting 85-87% before recently passing.

    Should I push it back two weeks? I know I have to decide myself, but any thoughts from others is very helpful. As always, thanks for any help!

    How are you studying??? What is your other sources?

    Usually, NCSBN (the NCLEX makers) propose 70% and above increases the chance of passing the NCLEX.

    Thanks for the support and feedback!

    I've been using the Lippincott and Exam Cram NCLEX-PN books, latest editions. Going through questions, making flashcards out of the stuff I don't know, reviewing those flashcards, repeat.

    I just got 78% on another Lippincott practice exam, so getting better! I'm gonna go for it folks.
