Does anyone have tips for studying for the nclex?
Mar 25, 2015
for me i took a month to review content by reading the NCLEX illustrated study guide. it's actually only approx 630 pages, which would have taken me about 2 weeks to finish by reading 50-100 pages per day if it wasn't because i kept getting distracted very easily due to the fact that i was still waiting for my ATT.
I got my ATT just one day before i finished reading the book. After that I practiced questions on Kaplan for two weeks by doing at least 150 questions per day and reviewing each question at the end even the ones that i got right to make sure i was getting them right for the correct reason and not just because i got lucky, and i wrote down any medication i didn't know about, I finished all the 7 qtrainers, and the whole qbank which consisted of approx 1100 questions, and also did all the practice questions. My scores in the qtrainers were kind of low, however my scores improved and were within the recommended scores by kaplan instructors (above 60%) once I started doing the qbank questions.
