Hi everyone, please I am new to this forum. I just received my ATT today and I was given till January 8 to write the nclex. I have not scheduled yet. I have finished Saunders comprehensive review averaging 58% in the questions in the book. Now i am ready to start doing questions only till my exam date. I have some resources already, Exam cram, Maryann Hogan comprehensive review, Kaplan i purchased and have done like 200 questions, and la charity, Prepu nclex 10,000 & HESI question bank. I think it is too much resources, but some are saying that I should get UWORLD. I have the saunders questions that came with the book too. Please advice on how soon you guys think I should test and which materials that I can put more time. I just want to focus on the ones that truly mimic the nclex. Please guys recommend any material you think helped you the most or are closest to the nclex questions. I need you the good people of all nurses to help me. Any input will be appreciated. God bless you all as you comment to help. Thanks to you all.
Use what you have before buying more. Don't confuse your mind with too much information
Personally I used Kaplan (my school purchased so it was free), borrowed a friend's UWorld (their rationales are AMAZING) and downloaded the Lippincott NCLEX app. That seemed to do it for me! I honestly found the Kaplan questions waaaay harder than the actual NCLEX, so I guess it did help me prepare because I passed in 75! Although I admit I used to hate Kaplan at first.
Sounds like you have a bit too many resources. I'd suggest not overwhelming yourself with so many different things. I would strongly suggest doing an overall content review in the different NCLEX categories (physiological adaptation, basic care & comfort, pharmacology...etc). Then practice as many questions as you can and make sure you read & understand EVERY rationale!!! Doing questions and not understanding the "why" behind the correct answer won't help. You have lots of time, so use it wisely! Good luck
