thanks, I used the Saunders comprehensive review at the beginning. Later I found there were too much content and I don't think I had enough time to go through everything! So I changed to use uworld instead. I think uworld is a lil bit hard, however, the explanation below the question is very comprehensive and systematic! I love uwrold so much! if you want to review some basic info, I suggest you to use hesi. For me these three materials help me pass the test.

hey thanks for the infos, Im also using uworld, i finished the whole q bank with 58% correct. took the both self assessment, yesterday and got 64% placing at 74th percentile and 65% at 78th percentile for the 2nd assessment. both says "very high chance of passing". i dont know how accurate that is, what do you think? starting to feel anxious. im taking the nclex this coming 30th.

my q bank average score is between 40-50%, not so good. However, I found the test questions were not so hard than I expected. So I also think you have a very high chance to pass the nclex! I highly recommend you to review some basic info, because once you made a mistake about a question, the next question would be basic. so don't ignore basic info that is important as well. Btw, good luck for your oncoming test!
