NCSBN Online Review

  1. Any one of you who took the NCSBN Online review? What scores or % did you get in the quizzes? Was it a good predictor of passing the NCLEX exam? Any comments? Thanks.

    I took it and to me it was not the best study guide, I like kaplan and saunders more, all the best to you.

    NCSBN is not good. Saunder's and kaplan is the best.

    I definitely agree. Saunders and Kaplan are the best.

    I took it. I thought it was ok. I didnt like the outlines but I did like all the questions. they helped me, I think. I took NCLEX today and I got 75 questions..who knows if thats a good thing or a bad thing. My scores ranged anywhere from 50% to 83% with a median score of 68%. [S][/S]

    I think it helped me. I think the tests were the most like the real NCLEX than anything else. I agree though, the outlines arent wonderful. PS..I passed my NCLEX

    I didn't care for it, at first, but it did make me think. I didn't get similarly styled questions for my NCLEX, but it did have a series of questions to work with, because I did so many questions before the exam, that I ran out of CD ROMS...literally.

    I did not like it and it was useless for me. Sounder's and Kaplan Q-bank and Q-Trainers are the best. In my opinion, Nclex resembled Kaplan 99%. I had 75Q and still waiting for my results.

    Hi! thank you... Someone told me not to take the course because it did'nt help her. on the other hand, my friend told me to stick on ncsbn online. Im still thinking what cd to study, is it saunders Q&A or springhouse 3000. I just finished Kaplan trainer, and I scored bet 60%-70%. What's your advice? thank you... :-)

    BTW, I passed NCLEX-RN with 75 Qs and Qs that I had were nothing even close to NCSBN. Instead, they looked like Kaplan.

    Good luck !!! I still say that NCSBN was waiste of money for me.

    Well my friend its still up to you if you want to enroll NCSBN. For me i've seen NCSBN outlines are quite to detailed or easy to understand compare to other review materials. You said that you've finished already the kaplan trianer and i see your scores are really good, Kaplan Questions is really hard compare to actual nclex questions (according to those who took the exam). Btw i also take the Kaplan course and it really help me a lot and now im trying to finish all my cds' saunders, kaplan trainer, mosby, lippincot, etc.. And another thing try suzzane's method i sure she'll help you. Start reading the suanders book for reference and take lots of questions. gud luck dude!! we can pass this exam! trust God.
