Hello everyone! I need HELP I am taking my NCLEX next month and I am really nervous because I feel like I dont know enough! I am using the HURST review course for content review and also the kaplan content review book and kaplan NCLEX-RN srategies. practice and review. I also have saunders but I feel like Kaplan is easier to read. I am doing 100-150 kaplan questions a day and taking notes on questions that I missed. My scores are between 58-62% Readiness:58% Do you guys think my scores are too low? and do you guys think HURST is better than kaplan content wise TIA :)

If you just graduated you should not be spending more than a few minutes here and there on content. You should be doing questions and reading every rationale, even the ones you got right. This is active learning.

thank you! I graduated in May! yes I do questions and I do read the rationales. I only spend 1 or 2 hours on content I was just worried about my kaplan scores and thought that they are way too low. I mostly got As and Bs in NS but nursing school test questions werent as hard as Kaplan :(

I wouldn't get hung up on your absolute scores on Kaplan, rather look at the trend. If you are improving and continually getting higher percentages then that is good. My school used ATI so I can't speak to the Kaplan program. Keep doing questions, that should comprise the majority of your time. Only spend time on content if you are continually getting a certain topic wrong.
