    I'm sure you passed but good luck keep us posted. I tried the PVT trick and it worked for me, I found out through quick results I passed earlier this morning (Thursday) Best of wishes!

    Awesome Congratulations! Ive now tried it 3 times with a real credit card and attempted to pay and got the good message/ pop-up. My Texas BON still has my GN permit up. Texas is quick to remove the name of NCLEX failures. so I'm feeling good.

    ^ you definitely passed. I did the same thing, I got the good pop up using the PVT but I said my sanity is worth more than $200, so I just went for it, gave all the correct credit card number, date, security code and it still didn't charge. Of course no one else I knew was willing to part with $200 like I did, so I got no confirmation from my friends using that method. but my quick results came and I passed.

    I figured if I have to retake the NCLEX the sooner the better. The info would still be fresh and I would be able to analyze the CPR and be better prepared $200 wouldn't be lost but applied to the Pearson NCSBN Proctored test. Yes, having the knowledge of probably passing from what I've seen at above 90% of all candidates on this and other forums have passed after getting the good pop-up/prompt message. My low level anxiety has virtually dissipated.

    Congrats! Wish I was able to feel that happy too, but I did the PVT today (almost 72 hours after the exam), but didn't get any good pop up (repeat test taker, to make it worse) lol Just my luck. I'll keep trying. Again, congratulations!!!

    Sorry to read that! once you get your CPR go over the areas that you need work on. I studied content first even though its taught in school my Fundamentals was weak, then for the 3 weeks before the exam I only worked on questions. NCSBN used there 8week NCLEX prep. USed the 6th ED,Suanders big book mostly content. my school had incorporated the La Charity PDA. for a $100 I never paid the several hundred dollar live review or any expensive NCLEX program. I do have a weakness on the SATA questions historically only getting around 40% right. I made it up with doing good on prioritization questions. You will make it regroup focus. ALSO sleep well the night before the test and control anxieties by being prepared or over prepared. I felt prepared but not over-prepared. I was getting burned out with working and taking 3 classes for a future BSN. I bit the bullet, dove head first into the deep-end of course!

    What a motivation! Thank you! Just got done crying to my friends about it. I don't have money to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive review courses as well. I've used UWORLD and liked it, but didn't get to hit all their question banks. I'm highly wanting to use La Charity now. Just gotta come up with money for the test and review materials lol Also need a little bit of time to brush off and get back into it.

    If you still have time on your subscription left, I recommend not to give up on UWORLD and try to hit all their question banks! The practice and content review are amazing (as I'm sure you know) and I felt like it helped. Especially the Leadership & Management section because that had many priority questions. Also look over the 35 page study guide if you've got that.

    Yes! Love UWORLD! Just disappointed with myself for not being able to hit all the questions. Was running out of time and didn't want to change my test date. I'll continue on with that and yes! I do have the 35 pages. You think that helped?
  13. by   NuGuyNurse2b
    I did not think the 35 page guide was helpful without the core content knowledge. yes if you have knowledge content down, then that guide was like a quick refresher. I honestly think people who don't pass nclex need to work on their core content because doing questions alone won't help if you are lacking in core content. I spoke to one of my buddies who failed nclex and I just kind of quizzed her in the process, going over questions and she would say "what's the right answer?" - cause she didn't know. NCLEX won't test you on ABG, for example, by giving you the parameters and asking you what disorder it is, like on practice questions. You need to know the signs and symptoms of those disorders in order to answer the question they are asking.

    And I think that's a repeating pattern I see on these message boards. Uworld is excellent, but investing in something like the Hurst program is good with reinforcing content that you learned in school. Doing questions alone won't be enough, no matter how good the rationales are, and I think uworld has great rationales.
