Will you please give me some information of a good resource to prepare for NCLEX? And after graduation, how many weeks or months of review did you do before you took the exam?
Thank you very much!
Moved to NCLEX forum.
You might find some useful information by browsing through the threads in this forum.
As you know and have seen UWorld is a favorite. I used Uworld and my ATI review that was provided from school. I also used the Saunders book NCLEX-RN book as well as the access to the online resource that it comes with. I have seen Hurst in person (my ex used it) and it's great to re-cap your content, however, if you have a grasp on content, then I would not spend the $400 for it.
Saunders is a great book. It is to the point and summarized. And for $60.00 you get access to THOUSANDS of questions. Once you review Suanders, then move on to Uworld and prepare for strategy style questions.
I graduated last month on August 17th, I immediately dived into reviewing and doing questions on Uworld EVERY DAY. I am not working, so this allowed me to study as if it was my full time job. I studied in the morning, took breaks and studied again in the afternoon.
With that being said, after 4 weeks, I took my exam today and passed after 75 questions, one and a half hours.
Good luck to you! You can do it, just believe!
I purchased UWorld for 90 days both assessments 1 & 2. I studied for about 5 weeks M-F and I passed in 75 questions this was back in July. Good Luck!!

: Reason: n/a
I did Kaplan online, so I could do modules at home on my old schedule. I primarily learned their test-taking strategy, and then did a bajillion practice questions. I didn't do much content review, I just looked things up if I kept consistently getting questions wrong about the same topic.
As far as timing: I gave myself a week off after graduation. I started studying that next week, and then signed up for the earliest test date I could get after I got my ATT. I think all in all I studied for a month, and then passed in 75 questions.
