    I just registered on this site today & I have been hearing a lot about the "PVT" and the "good pop" and I don't understand what that means.. can someone please be kind enough to explain. I just did my Nclex this morning and I am so restless - I can;t eat nor drink. I had a lot of "all that apply" and I had a hard time and I just feel that I did not do well cot it stopped at 147.. what is PVT please?
    Merging this with existing thread for continuity

    Good luck

    So apparently I have to wait one more day to find out. I took my boards on the first. Some of my friends were able to count the day they took them as one of the two business days. I guess I'm not so lucky. Well positive pop-up is all I'm running on right now...which isn't much according to some.

    Oh no!! You just made me nervous again!! I was feeling a little better after I saw that I got the good pop up.... but people have been getting false positive/negatives?? Oh boy. I find out Sunday morning.

    I took my NCLEX-PN in CA on August 16 and it stopped at 75 questions. I had mixed feelings re: whether I passed or failed. Two dosage, priority, many pharm., and many SATA. I tried the pop-up and received the "good" pop up. After reading the string I was happy that I tried it as it offered some relief. I received my letter that I passed on Aug. 25th, less than 10 days later!
    Isn't it 85 questions for PN and 75 for RN?

    Alright guys. I walked out of the test feeling like absolute shite. I was about 90% sure I failed. I studied my ass off, but the questions were seemed foreign to me. I never felt more sure than an idea of the answer for many of the questions. I got a crapload of select all that apply and meds. A nightmare as those weren't my strong areas. I was terrified as I reached the 75th question. I hit the "next" button. "Please, one more. Please one more." No such luck. I was officially done. When I walked in people were already seated and testing. I was the first one to leave. No exaggerations, the testing people looked at me sympathetically. Maybe only because they could see the disappointment in my face - though I knew they didn't know whether I passed or failed - I ran out of there. I immediately called friends to inform them that I failed. Friends who had taken their boards argued that I had no idea what I was talking about, but there was no convincing me. I never passed a test before that I felt that I had done terribly on. I think that is the great divide between the boards and probably ever other test one will take before the boards. Anyway, I was told about "the trick" and tried it repeatedly with the same surprising results. It seemed to imply I had miraculously passed. No way. I felt good about it, til I came across a few threads here that stated people were getting false negatives and positives. I immediately started developing ulcers again. Today a few hours after the time I had taken the test on the first....it finally said my results were "available". Oh Crud. I was thinking of you guys when I decided to do the trick one last time before finally getting my results. I tried once again to register for the R.N. exam and the "Good pop up" appeared. Ok....this seems good. I checked my results. I passed. Maybe there is some truth to this whole thing afterall. Keep your chin up and don't let yourself get to bent out of shape over it. The trick just might be true. Best of luck. - DABDA R.N.

    hey guys i've been reading on this forum for a while but just joined today.

    i took the nclex-rn for the first time in july and failed. i had 265 questions and after it was over, i just knew i had failed because i kind of threw in the towel after i passed the 75 question mark. i went home and found this site and did the pvt. it took me straight to the credit card page. i was devastated. but three days later i bought a kaplan strategies book to study.

    after that, i signed up for a kaplan review course in august and it gave me a lot of confidence. i got 65% on the readiness test and the same scores on question trainers 6 and 7. i did 100% of the qbank questions and did 150 q's a day for two weeks until my test. i made flashcards with rationales for all incorrect answers and found this to be very helpful.

    i took the nclex-rn for the second time september 2 and it shut off at 75 questions. i had about 3-4 pharm questions about meds i had never heard of before. lots of SATA and priority and one med math question.

    i tried the pvt again and this time i got the good pop up!! i've been stalking the ohio bon site and i've done the pvt about fifty times just to make sure. although i have that little bit of reassurance from the trick, i'm still so nervous

    and i dont think my nerves will be rested by the quick results anytime soon because of the labor day weekend, so i'm guessing i wont get my unofficial quick results until tuesday!? i'm just hoping the ohio bon shows my name tomorrow, i've heard it takes them about two days to post your license info....if you pass.

    I never had to worry about it...my "approved" was posted on the board of nursing site less than two days after I took the exam.
