    Hi. From what I remember, the week before my exam..i continued to do questions. I've seen the Kaplan scores you've gotten and they are great. So i definitely think you're ready to go. I'm sure you also know that people say DO NOT study the day before. I did this and I think it helped rest my brain! When you're doing a lot of questions...make sure to take frequent breaks. How many questions have you done so far? If you've done a lot..I think i would cut back this week, since it seems to me you definitely know what you're doing. You don't want to kill yourself! Good luck hun. I think you'll definitely pass this time

    Thanks LenaRN06, you are amazing, I have done over 7000 questions, and I think that's why am so tired, thank you so much for your words of encouragement, I know that I am going to PASS. I am so sick and tired of doing questions. This time I have also studied all my school notes over, and I have read the saunders book, I am feeling overstudied, how many question did you do, and did you focus on your school notes, take care and pray for me.

    I will definitely keep you in my prayers Wow 7000 questions?? I did nowhere near that i think i did about 3000+ or so...never kept track....but you definitely need the break! Don't do too many now....you've definitely done MORE than enough, so I think you can do this


    Forgot to add this: i only studied using practice questions...didn't really look back at my school notes.

    One of the most important things to know about studying is when to quit. You don't want to overload your brain and have everything run together. Take these next few days to let your brain "settle", so to speak. Do what you can to stay relaxed. Tell yourself you're ready. If there's anything you still don't know, now is not the time to learn. Remember, NCLEX is testing beginning knowledge. It's easy to read too much into the questions or overthink them. Your tests in school were probably a lot more in depth than this test.

    I watched a bunch of girly, funny movies the day before. It really helped me from feeling too overwhelmed. I made sure I watched movies i either hadn't seen before or had only seen once before. Good luck!!
