Preparing for the NCLEX.....

  1. For all those who have taken and passed the NCLEX exam, what grades or % did you get in your CD trainers/exams before you took the NCLEX? Thanks so much.

    For Kaplan I got in the 50's-60's and that was only because the Kaplan questions were really hard but very good for critical thinking skills. Goal for Kaplan is 65 and up. Never got 65 and still passed. Saunders would vary from high 60's-90's. I thought studying Saunders and Kaplan together helped me pass the NCLEX the first time around. Good luck!

    Thanks for your question. I've got one week to go until the exam and I was wondering the same thing. I am doing learningext.com (from NCSBON) and keep getting 70% on areas before I do a course review. Keep wondering if this is good enough or if I should make sure I get higher.

    Be interested in the responses!

    70% is good if it is on delegation, prioritizing, safety, pharmacology and alternatives. It is very important that you understand the rationals. I took NCSBN for three weeks before testing and I think it helped a lot in these areas. Nonetheless, please be aware that I combined it with Saunders. Good luck.

    Go and read at the "International" forum, where all the information you need is.

    I did Saunders and was in the 80+ range for them all.
