NCLEx "Difficult" Question?

Greetings All:

I am so curious about "difficult" NCLEX questions - I understand that a question is deemed "difficult" by the statistics - if a lot of people get it wrong, then it's a "difficult" question. I am sure the level of analysis comes into play, too. Mere recall is obviously easier than recall followed by critical thinking. That said, does anybody know where to find examples of "NCSBN Certified" difficult questions?

Thanks so much!

They are all difficult if you don't know the answer! So get on the computer and start answering questions ( at least 5-7 thousand)

good luck.

Moved your thread to the NCLEX Discussion Forum. As far as I know, the NCSBN doesn't publish specific examples of each difficulty level.

Thanks Larry,

Ha! I know what you mean - I've been working from a variety of cds and books, and am amazed at how they range in difficulty, which is why I was wondering. The consensus seems to be to focus on testing, testing, testing, but boy does it ever get tedious!

Eric,

I like Larry's definition - if you don't know it, it's difficult.
