Was years ago but I took it about a month after graduation. I had one review book but honestly there’s nothing you can truly study that will prepare you for it. It was critical thinking. 76 questions, 2 days later I had preliminary pass results. Most of my questions were select all that apply. I remember one nightmare question that I’d had and still to this day don’t know if I got it right. But don’t sweat it it, if you made it through school with no troubles, You’ll be fine.

I graduated May 9th. Due to covid making others reschedule their test & limiting the number of spots, I tested Aug. 3rd. I used Mark K & UWorld mainly. Passed in 60 questions.

@Millieee13 BSN RNCongratulations for passing NCLEX! I am reviewing for 3 mos now on and off but hard to balance work and review. I know I am patiently studying but I feel like I am not ready yet. Do you know until when is the 60 and 130 questions up and running?

When are you planning to write @nikki1018

I took my NCLEX last weekend and passed in 60 questions. I used Kaplan through my school which I really liked Because it helped break down questions. I also used UWorld. I studied for almost 6 weeks everyday. I know nurseachieve has a free 30 day subscription right now if you check their facebook page. I felt the NCLEX was most like nurseachieve because it was straightforward and like one sentence or two. And seriously I had questions that were like what is this sign and symptom questions. I had lots of Lots of mental health and OB. Didn’t have too much priority, But I did have a couple safety and infection control, one dosage... and 2 pharmacology. everyone’s exam is different! I also listened to Free mark Klimek Audios,... he kinda Also talked about how all you really need to know is what everyone else knows which made it ease my brain when studying. He literally says it’s okay to miss the hard questions it’s the easy ones you don’t want to miss..

if you end up purchasing UWorld just remember that your scores don’t matter as long as you learn the material and write it down. I found my scores were low because I didn’t know the material but after I learned it I was like I got it. Honestly there is no way you can learn everything , if you really want to learn EVERYTHING then I would purchase the Saunders NCLEX book because that literally has everything in the NCLEX you need to know. When I got questions wrong I looked back at this book and they always had the answer.

I was an average student. But I studied really hard and made it. You will also.

Good luck!

Thank you! I’m not sure when they are going to go back to the original style of NCLEX. If you’re studying on & off I would definitely suggest doing a few NCLEX questions (even if it’s just 10) everyday. It’ll keep your brain in nurse mode. I over studied & I DO NOT suggest doing that because I was sleep deprived. To feel like you’re not ready is something I think everyone goes through. I’m sure you will do great!

@novayogi96

No, I didn’t get any SATAs where I selected them all! I got about 8-10 SATAS.

Hey, I think you are also starting the preparation for NCLEX. I'm looking for a dedicated study partner for NCLEX.I have uploaded my study schedule on the studypal if you are interested please me on studypal.

Thanks

I took my test (PN NCLEX) yesterday at 11:00 a.m and used the PVT and got the “bad pop up” your credit care has been declined, please contact your credit care company. Did I fail?

Hey, guys.

To all who took NCLEX 2020, did you think UWorld did a good job preparing you guys?

I graduated August first started studying on the 5th. Took my NCLEX Sept 10th and passed in 60 questions. It took about 45 mins. I primarily used Saunders and a little ATI
