I just took my NCLEX this morning. I had about 12 SATA, 5 Math, 2 drag and drop, 3 EKG interpretation, 1 Exhibit, and 1 picture (dunno what it was). The screen turned blue then on to the survey. My oh My, I was in tears doing the survey.
Funny thing was, on my 5th question and a SATA, I just had a sudden urge to pee. Hahaha... then again on my 14th, again on my 22nd and on my break. After my break, I didn't take any more. I have consumed almost 3 hours and I wasn't even on my 75th. Then... the dreadful blue screen.
I waited about 15 mins before I went in. I was having a short conversation with the attendant. I was just sitting there and taking deep breaths. He'll look at me and ask, are you ready? I said no. A couple breaths more, then we'd laugh. I was smiling and chatting with the people (test takers and test attendants) at the test center. I was so darn nervous that I talked to everyone in the test center to shake off the nerves. And I wore a pretty dress. My thinking was, whatever happens or if I lose consciousness, at least I look pretty. LOL!
Anyways, this site helped me with a lot of tips. I answered over 3000 Qs and never was a day I felt I was ready. I am a foreign grad and that made me work extra harder on my content and review. Some stuff I never encountered in school neither at work back in PI.
By the way, I couldn't bring myself to do the PVT trick. I went to the BON site (NM) and just typed my SSN, and saw my name with a license number. That's when I went tried the PVT. It should be the other way around, I know! Lol!
Anyhoo, I got the best birthday gift.
