I live in New York State and I just took my exam today. I did the work, did over 4000 questions in two months, read all the rationals (even the ones I got correct), know my labs and drug interactions on most prototypes and all the others I saw on questions. I did UWorld, subscribed to NCLEX Mastery, had a Lippencott book for NCLEX-RN with an interactive program with assessment and progress. I charted my progress, focused on my weaknesses, reviewed my strengths..I walked into that exam feeling calm and confident that I had done the work (but still pretty nervous and not cocky). I was assaulted with SATAs, prioritizing (which I think are fun), some math but it kept getting more and more difficult until about the 20th question when I could not relate any of the options to the question. there were disorders we did not cover in school...I had a brain infarction...then a few of the questions got easier and I freaked because I thought they were "dumbing down the test" because I SUCKED. I lost all confidence and then at question #60 the screen said I had a break (after just 90 minutes)...what was that about? I was then prepared to do all 265. I returned after a quick glass of water, started the test again with easier questions then it shut off at 75. I felt sick...still am panicking. I feel like after question 20 I was guessing...and I came home and looked up some answers...that I was wrong about...I know I KNOW I failed. So in New York State, we have the Quick answer..after 48 hours...but I am dying to try the PVT...but I just don't think I would trust it. I heard that if your state has the Quick return that you can not do the PVT. Anyone know the answer? And did anyone else hear of someone getting a break after just 90 minutes? Again, I think it was because I was doing well for a while then nose dived...like they thought I needed a break??? If anyone has an answer, I would appreciate your time..Thanks!
