Hello all. I graduated nursing school in 2018, and I just found out that I failed my NLCEX for a 3rd time. I’m feeling quite hopeless, as my offer at a hospital will be rescinded, but I want to try again. Just how do I conquer the NCLEX? I’ve used Uworld each time and when I take the assessments I do well and my estimated pass rate is always in the high percentile, yet I get to the actual exam and still fail. I’m thinking I need to hone my test taking skills. Any suggestions overall?

I used a combination of Uworld, Kaplan's book (not the course) and Saunders. Supplemented with videos on Youtube (I learn better with video). I made sure to do 200 questions every day, plus read and make sure I understood everything. Listening to Mark K NCLEX videos on Youtube is very helpful. I think the questions on NCLEX are more similar to Saunders out of everything. Just my 2 cents, I hope something helps. Don't ever give up, you can do this.

I believe that the SATA questions are kicking most of us in the rear because there is no partial credit for them.  They are either right or wrong.  If you add one question more or less than you should, that makes the whole question wrong. I had to answer about 35 of them out of 190 and I was very stressed out.

If you haven't already look into Kaplan's NCLEX strategies! They help a lot with prioritization questions for sure

To be honest I didn’t use it to study for NCLEX, but it was very helpful for studying for tests in school. Best of luck with continued studying, you guys got this!
