    You know I got my ATT letter on 5-20-09 and I checked the dates and the first available was 5-26-09 and I thought that is way too early and I was scared but I realized that I was not gonna know any more now than I would a month from now. Though I did study questions about 100 a day for the days between the 20th and my test day. I studied ATI that my school had set up Virtual ati and the 2 week class is still going on I only did 8 days of it and mainly focused on the med surg part, I dont hink that is what helped me. I also had a kaplan book that I bought for 30.00 it was one to learn strategies, though I dont think thats what did it either.
    I feel that what you were taught in school is what helps, you either know it or you dont...the NCLEX RN is not hard, its actually much easier than any school test I had anyways...yes there is alot of anticipation and stress in wondering and waiting and seeing if you will pass but I feel you know the common sense material or you dont its that simple. Others might disagree with me but thats the way I feel.
