Quick results or Pearson Trick?

  1. I am taking the NCLEX in MI next week. Do I pay for the quick results or just try the pearson trick? How long do I have to wait to do either?

    apparently the pearson trick can be done almost immediately after taking the test..haven't tried it yet because I am so worried I failed and I am chicken to look! The quick results are available 48 hours after the test. I would recommend getting them even if you do the trick, just for your certainty and peace of mind!

    The tricked worked immediately for me, but really that just served as somewhat of a 'reassurance' after taking the actual test... and you may find yourself doing it every day that you can until you can actually pay the 7.95 to find out if it was true. I'd set aside the 8 bucks just in case! Good luck on your test!

    It is the official results that count. Just wait on your quick results. Good luck.

    I did both the Pearson Trick, plus the $8 Quick Results. I'd say spend the $8 for a little extra peace of mind.

    If CA participated in Quick Results I'd be all over that.

    Just look on the main NCLEX forum page and you will see a thread discussing the Pearson 'trick'

    If your state offers it, believe me..you might as well take it. You'll be able to sleep at night! In CA they don't offer it, so I used the trick and it WORKED. I tried it as soon as it said "successful" and it blocked me from re-taking the exam. And, I found out officially this morning. Good Luck!

    i took nclex-rn july 6th @ 2:30 p.m. i had 86 questions. a lot of priority, sata, no dosage, a few maternity and peds questions, and i drag and drop alternative format. i felt so dumb after i left the testing center because i felt like i guessed at a lot of the questions. i felt like they were hard. i did the infamous pearson trick two hours later and couldnt get to the cc page, i did it again today and still got the pop-up. guess thats a good sign. i'm a little skeptical about believing it bcause i read a few posts where people said they couldnt get to the cc page and still failed. i shall see tomorrow

    The pearson vue trick, got me to sleep and calm my nerves for 48 hours. Before I opened the bottle of champagne and call all my friends to share the good news, I paid $7.95 for the quick results.
