I failed the NCLEX on March 29, 2014 with 265 questions. My next attempt is on August 1, 2014. After failing the first time I took a long break before studying again. I used Kaplan only for the first attempt. For my second attempt I'm using mostly saunders and did not log into kaplan at all till recently. Read the chapters in saunders and did a lot of questions from the book and online program. Just last week I started using kaplan again and here are my trainer scores...

Trainer 1. 49.3 (March) 66.7 (July)

Trainer 2. 42.7 (March) 69.3 (July)

Trainer 3. 52.0 (March) 56.0 (July)

Trainer 4. 51.3 (March) 60.0 (July)

Trainer 5. 55.3 (March) 62.7 (July)

Trainer 6. 55.0 (March) 68.5 (July)

Trainer 7. 53.2 (March) Not yet taken

There have been improvement in the scores but I don't know if its because I am actually improving or because I've taken those tests already. I'm going crazy and I don't know if I should push back my exam or not. I really don't want to fail again! Am I on the right track?

I know not to focus on the scores but I do! Yours improved a lot so I think that is a very good sign! I think more people fail for being too confident or having so much anxiety that they can't recall the material. This is so tricky! I just want to get it over with at this point! I know that I could study for another 6 months and still not pass based on God only knows what!

Good luck!!!

I'm the same too. Its like I need something to show that I'm doing better or something. Idk. I havent done the Readiness exam yet so I may attempt that today since I've never taken it before.

Does the readiness exam really show that I'm able to pass? Ive seen the table but don't know how legit it is. Anyone know?

I just got home and I wanted to update everyone. My exam logged out at 98 questions and so far I've gotten the good pop up! Ive checked it twice so far. Once about 15 mins after the exam and just now...about 2 hours after the exam.
