how many questions for nclex cat test, what is the maximum time period for that.

Some of these answers look a little confusing, I hope mine doesn't add to that confusion. But basically, if you answer a a question correctly, the next question gets a little harder. Answer it wrong and the next question gets easier. Obviously you need to stay above a certain "line" for the majority of the questions. (I can't make you a graphic here, but maybe you can find one.).
If you keep anwering correctly most of the time thereby getting the harder questions, the test will shut off at 75 or so. Get more of them wrong, thereby getting easier questions, and you have to keep answering questions to "prove" you can pass. Now, just because it shuts off at 75 that does not mean you pass. Just because you take the whole test does not mean you fail. I think most people are in the middle as far as how many questions they had to answer.
I will add that I took the LVN test on paper, then 7 years later took the computer test for my RN, so despite my "15 years experience" I have taken the computer test.
