I have spent the past 3 days in the house. Only to go outside to take out trash. Although I have been studying, I'm feeling like I'm not doing enough. Working my way through NCSBN, listening to Kaplan and hurst, kaplan qbank, saunders alternate format, PDA, and a guide I found on here. Today I did some reading and 65 questions. I don't have a date set, but I do want to test before the year is out.

Do as many questions, higher level ques (ncsbn) for 2-3 weeks and take the exam. You will do well.

You only reviewed for 3 days to take the NCLEX- RN? Good luck, I guess.

Please reread my statement and then if you have anything worth while to say, then and only then, respond.

Yes, that is my plan. How do u determine the higher level group questions on NCSBN?

You cannot unless you are well versed in Blooms Taxonomy and other learning assessment theories. All types of questions (SATA, alternate format, multiple choice) have higher and lower level questions. What the research shows is a high level question you might find easy if it's in a preferred subject matter area

Sounds like you're making the right moves to prepare, but just have test anxiety. Before the test, take a deep breath and relax. At that point, there's nothing else you can do. Trust that you are ready and have faith in yourself and your capabilities. Don't think of it as a "test", but an opportunity to prove what you have learned. Praying for you!!

Oh, didn't read your last sentence. Plus, I don't pray, so I can't exactly say I'd pray for you, but I can say good luck.

Do 50-150 questions a day, ratio them well. 30 days with 100 questions a day is 3000, which is a good place to start. Another thing, if you've been studying for 3 days, but covered ALL of those different materials in those 3 days, then I'm guessing that you might be jumping sources too much. Kaplan, Saunders, Hurst, PDA, NCSBN all in one day or even 3 days is a lot. Try not to jump around too much, knock them out one at a time.

My personal studying was simple, and I passed.

Wake up at 8 AM, eat and FB a bit. Do 100 questions starting at 9, finish by 10:30.

Chill from 10:30-2 to 4 PM, by eating, FB, watching TV series (Sons of Anarchy, Marvel Agents of Shield, Supernatural)

Start the rationalization at around 4 PM to like 5-6 PM. Then watch TV series till like 10 and sleep.

Repeat until exam day for a few months. Passed at 115ish questions last week, first try.

I read your threads, you didn't pass sometime before September, and was preparing for your "Round 2" by dedicating all of September to studying, then come November, you said "getting back upon my study horse" by starting NCSBN for your 2nd or 3rd take I'm guessing.

You planned to "read my Hurst book at least 4 times". Oh man, that sounds like a huge waste of time. A tip, it's not about quantity, its about quality. If you read the book once, and actually paid attention to what you're reading, then you don't need to do it 3 or 4 more times.

Yes, the anxiety is setting in. Although I did do some questions today, I did relax and got out of the house. Now I'm ready to dive back in.

Yes I have been using all of those source at the same time. My day starts with doing 25 Saunders alternate format questions, then work my way through NCSBN and do maybe 50 questions, and listen to Kaplan content review. I am seeing I like the Kaplan and hurst content Latoya better than NCSBN. Thank you for good luck!

See you have done ur homework. Have heard all growing up u learn by repetition, so when I study I i try to go over things as many times as I possibly can. Honestly it hasn't really worked, but it is all I know.
