    Hi, I will be taking my boards in August as well, I'm waiting on my Att number but should get it soon. I'm doing Hurst online and reading Reviews and Rationales for Nclex. Do you think that is enough?? I do not want to stress myself out. I'm afraid I waited to long to test, I graduated in May with my A.D.N.

    I dont think you did a "bad" thing by waiting few months to take the NCLEX,I think it is good to take some time off relax,then take a review and study at home...you cant possibly remeber everything that you learned for the past two years in school...that is the reason why the reviews were created.

    I took NCLEX one month after graduation, and about a week or so after taking Kaplan, which I hated. But I passed NCLEX. I did the q-bank questions everyday for the week or so before the test and did probably 200 questions a day, by the end did 88% of all the available questions, I don't think they were too similiar to the ones on NCLEX, but I passed with 89 questions and guess it worked enough. Goodluck to all!

    is that all you did? i mean did you use other books such as saunders for content? .. or only kaplan is what worked for you? and how many questions did you do per day?

    I took the hurst review in january, then again after i graduated my ADN school in May. I am planning on scheduling the next available NCLEX, after i get my ATT.

    My plan:

    review the HURST seminar notes booklet
    Do the end of chapter questions,
    Watch the pediatric lecture and do the seminar notes section (on the DVD)
    take the mock nclex, (maybe take it twice)

    Don't freak out y'all NCLEX isn't so big and bad as they make it out to be.

    All of my classmates have been finishing with 75 questions and all of them reported that NCLEX was easier than any of the tests we took in our community college program.
