    After you take the test, you attempt to register for the test again. If it allows you to go to the credit card page, then, supposedly you failed. If it has some type of other response, not allowing you to go to the credit card page, you passed. Just check the Board website for your official standing. That is the one that counts.

    i have to say that this site is the only thing along with prayer that keep me sane for that long 48 hour wait! i have enjoyed reading all of your post and just like many of you.....i got 76 ?s.... i'm thinking what??? for sure they gave me one more chance (1 more ?) to determine that i just wasn't getting it!!!! i knew for sure that i failed . in school i was told about the pvt. and i am thinking yea right there is no way this so called trick works....

    yea so i was wrong. i read your many post and i was relieved to find that this pvt really worked for all of you.....and guess what it worked for me too!!!

    pvt good pop up about an hour after my test (july 8 @ 8am) and today (july 10 @ 8am) 48 hours exactly after paying $7.95....i passed!!!!!!
    *wine so pour a glass and have a drink with me, because my birthday is coming this friday& its going down!

    :heartbeatIt worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Pearsonvue trick held true to its comments on this website!! I was so anxious, in the back of my head I was convienced that I passed due to the overwhelming response of nurses that had said that the trick worked. On the other hand I still wanted to know for sure so I paid the money to get the qucik results and saw "Pass" what a relief!! All of the countless hours and days paid off!! I got 75 questions, 3 image questions, 15 SATA, and 5-8 drug questions, the rest were priority questions. I did get some content questions may 5-8 but not much, mainly priority questions. When I left the building I felt like "that wasn't soo bad, maybe I did all right." As time went on I kept going over questions and saying "oh my gosh, I didn't know that at all." It was a long 5 hour drive home, especially for my husband that could not even try to wrap his head around the fact that I might have failed with 75 questions. All I wanted to do was call my nursing friends but none were available so I went to this website and boy was it heaven sent!! Anyway if anyone is interested in study habits, I actually found mine here on this website

    ~ First: Saunder's Comprehensive Review to go over some content that I needed to brush up on. Very helpful book that has about everything you need to know in it. However, the questions were not that hard.
    ~ Second: LaCharity Priority book, this book came in really handy for this exam especially since MOST of it was about priority... which patient to see first!
    ~ Lastly: MOST HELPFUL thing ever!!!!!!!!!!!!! KAPLAN, I did the book you can buy as well as the expensive online tool with the q-bank and questions. This was so priceless when it came to preparing me for the NCLEX, it was worth every penny. The questions were hard, I would like to say for me they were harder than the NCLEX itself!!

    Our school used ATI as a supplement during nursing school it was a great tool during school HOWEVER, I would NOT recommend it for studying for the NCLEX. The questions are too easy and would give you a sense of false security in my book. Kaplan was the way to go and I am super grateful that I had the advice to take the class, it was worth it!!!

    Well, I must go but thanks to everyone for the support. This website was just what I needed, I hope I can help even one person with their persuit at the NCLEX. Peace~ Heather RN

    I took my test on July 7th, I waited four hours before checking perason vue. After logging in, I tried the pvt, and I got the good pop up. I live in California, no quick results here. Does anyone one know how long before I get my results and how soon I should see my name on the California's BON.

    I did the EXACT same thing, and I have to agree that THIS system works. While I did not buy the Kaplan online tool, I can say the book is valuable. My school also used ATI as well and even gave us the three day "prep" course. ATI and the three day prep is not enough to pass the NCLEX, not with the sheer amount of prioritization questions.

    ATI was great during school but I feel that our class would have been more prepared if would have used Kaplan during school. The book alone is invaluable, but if there is any doubt in your mind I say buy the online piece of it too. For me it was kind of just a little extra security to pass the first time and with only 75 questions, I really think it worked. I did between 100-150 questions 6 days a week for 2 weeks before my test before that I would review the Saunder's book to gather all of the information I learned in 2 years For me this is the system that worked best, I have heard from countless people this was the way to go and it proved to be right!! I am happy I only had 75 questions... but I have to say it is nerve racking, the waiting. The PVT really helped calm my nerves right after the test because you just get the overwhelming feeling "what if?" I honestly believe in the trick and would tell everyone else too as well but as we are in the health care field... it is always nice to cya!

    This Cannot be Real. I took the test today, 75 questions and the computer shut down. I prayed it was just "loading". It was really difficult. It took me almost 2 hours to do 75 questions. Im pretty sure i failed. The test started at 8am today and now its 4:29pm. I keep checking and so far I have the good pop up. My results state that they've been successfully delivered and at the bottom in bold red it states my results are not ready for viewing. Ive heard people having the good Pop Up for almost 24 hours then it changes to the CC screen and they FAIL!! Can someone explain this to me.. Has anyone heard of this. What are the odds!?!?! Im not totally going to believe that this works but with some hope i might be able to crawl outta the fetal position and sleep tonight. HELP!!!
