Just wanted to share my experience since I know i went through a lot of these feeds while waiting for NCLEX results or just figuring out the best way to approach the whole exam. Graduated from nursing in Australia 2013. Was an RN there for two years before moving back to the USA. I took the exam for the 1st time February 2017 and failed in 265 questions. Tried the PVT and got the pop up that said my results were on hold, 2 weeks later i got a letter in the mail saying i did not pass. Used Hurst and nclex mastery app to study. Second attempt April 2017 in 75 questions. Used UWORLD only and did not pass. I checked the PVT and straight away got the bad pop up, it took my $$. 3rd attempt, July 2017 took the NCLEX and PASSED in 89 questions. Checked the PVT same day as the exam and said my results were on hold. Two days later i got the GOOD pop up saying i cannot register as i've already scheduled an exam recently. I figured i was lacking in content and bought Saunders 7th edition. Studied 4-5 hours weekdays. It also has an online component that has pre and post test and lots of practice questions in every format you will see on the exam. HIGHLY recommend this book, it's the only thing i used the 3rd time around and PASSED. So on my 3rd attempt, after getting to 89 questions, the screen went blue for a couple seconds and a screen popped up saying i was about to start 30 RESEARCH questions for FUTURE nclex exams. While doing these 30 questions my time was ticking down and i thought i wonder if it'll go back to my test after these questions. After the 30, another pop up saying to do post survey. Last pop up saying my test was finished. Totally thought I failed, felt like i knew nothing, tried my best. Got SATA, Multiple Choice, NO MATH, 3 put in order questions. PASSED!
