i'm planning to take a Kaplan course w/ review class hours. Do you recommend it? is it worth the money? it's $499. I just learned today that the money back guarantee only applies to first time test-takers. I failed my first exam so i'm having second thoughts about it. I'm also doing Suzanne's plan, but i still want to get a class review.
Another question, is there a big difference if i take the classroom course or the online course? and it says there that you have 3 month access to online resources... could i access this at home or do i have to go to a Kaplan center for this? Please give me more information about the Kaplan course review. I really need some help! thanks a lot! :spin:
I am doing Kaplan right now and I think that it is worth every penny!!
I know the money back guarantee is only for first time takers. But you have no idea how many people in my kaplan class know people who failed the nclex and then took the kaplan course... then passed!!
The classroom course you go to the class and you go over questions, and they show you how to break down the question even if you have no idea what the answer is.
In addition, once you purchase the classroom course, you get everything 24/7 online access to videos of content review, as well as question reviews. Plus your Qbank & Qtrainers that simulate an "nclex" exam. YOu can do this from home, or attend the kaplan center near your area. I do mine at home during the night because I have a baby.
The may class of my school graduated with 100% pass rate on the NCLEX, and most people I know from that class took Kaplan.
In addition to kaplan, I will do the learning extention from the ncsbn site, once I am done with all the kaplan questions, just for additional studies.
Good luck to you!
when are you taking the test?
