The questions are soooo hard!
i agree. sometimes i think they have wrong answer on priority questions.
Yes you are right. The questions are very very hard in the PDA book but I thought it was very helpful when it came to the nclex (especially) the infection control section. The nclex isn't nearly as hard as the questions in the PDA book.
Tnx i was thinking that if nxlex had the same questions i might die early! Haha
Yeah they're tough! But i like it. Goodluck to all of us taking the exam
PDA is definitely hard. I thought kaplan was easier than PDA
Me too..pda depresses me when i get to see my scores its like! What the hell happened!
They are difficult but in my experience were very helpful in studying for NCLEX. It can be frustrating but keep working through it.

^Agreed. I had a TON of SATA questions like in LaCharity, but was able to get through them because if this book.
Also, review books are relative, the scores are as well. If you score at least a 70% in a review, that means you are more likely to pass the NCLEX. Take attention to the review scores as how likely you will pass the NCLEX, not like your nursing school tests.
Once you are close to or over 70, you are ready. My scores were consistently 68-75 with LaCharity. I went in and passed the first time.

I'm redoing the tests i scored under 60%. I have a few 30s and 40s and my test is in a week ):
Know right! I'm redoing the tests i scored under 60%. I have a few 30s and 40s and my test is in a week ):
^Make sure you go back an read the rationales before retaking...that will help guide you for the NCLEX...good luck! ((HUGS))
thanks. i am reading them. what im worried about are the questions with content in the stem that im unfamiliar with.
i understand the "who do you see first," the therapeutic/best response questions, and the delegation/assignment rationales. but the ones asking "what's the MOST important to include in plan of care" dealing specifically with this type of med or that type of disease process i end up just guessing. bc i either don't remember the med or haven't heard of that disease or treatment for that disease. they feel like recall questions. and then i find myself cramming the little bit of content from the rationale into my head before my test in 4 days. learning content from rationales rather than review/textboooks is not a good thing. or at least i heard.
give me 4 people and i can point out the most unstable. give me 4 conditions and i can pair them into rooms or put them in a private one. but because i'm unfamiliar with a disease process or a procedure i skipped or haven't gotten to in my study time, i get like 6 or 7 wrong in every chapter quiz.
Kaplan, i get 60s. which they say is good. if only LaCharity did the same...
