I graduated in March, reviewed for the Philippine board exam until June and after that... definitely took too much time trying to recover from nursing school. Applied for NCLEX in August and since then have been studying on and off because waiting for the ATT makes it feel like I don't have enough pressure to *really* study. And the longer I wait, the less it seems I remember. Any advice for study materials/tips that can help me be ready? I am working full time and target exam date is in or before March 2020.

I have the Pearson Reviews & Rationales but I find it quite bulky and wordy even though I know it's supposed to be really good. Have been using the My Nursing Mastery app doing 25-50 questions a day as well since it's more affordable but at this point I'm willing to spend more for a really effective program.

I took my NCLEX-PN 3 years later and still passed by using UWorld. I didn't even finish all the questions in the bank because I believe in quality over quantity. If I knew a certain amount of info. really well then that would be better for me then doing every question and knowing nothing (which is why I failed when I first took it). Anyways, I wrote out my notes from the rationales on UWorld rather than worrying about getting questions right or wrong. Also, I did the question bank in order which is tedious but it helped me stay organized.

I would use Uworld and just continue to do questions daily.  Review the basic lab values and pharmacology.  You can't possible recall everything but if you do questions daily it will keep your brain always working and critical thinking

Look at the study strategies of those who passed the test within the last 6 months. Definitely take the test before the test writers decide to change the test format again.

During my mother's time, Kaplan was the go-to source. During my time, UWorld was, and probably still is, the go-to source. Nowadays, I am not sure, so look at the most recent study strategies.
