Pearson vue trick.... Pearson vue TRUTH?

I took my NCLEX today, stopped at 175. Did the PVT one hour after I took my exam, got the "good pop up". I hope it's true! I failed my first time, answered the max amount of questions, did the PVT an hour later and took me straight to CC page, sure enough, letter came in a week later saying I failed. Has anyone tried the PVT and have it be wrong? For you all taking the nclex soon and wondering what I used to prepare myself for my second attempt, I purchased NCSBN's 3 week course ($50) and read Kaplan's strategies. I didn't really read content, focused mainly on answering practice questions and read rationales for both right and wrong answers. Don't over study, make sure you have time for yourself to rest! :)

This is what I did and passed 1st attempt with 75 questions. I don't think anyone has gotten the good pop-up and failed. PVT worked for me when I took the LPN and then when I took my RN a few weeks ago.

So I am sure congrats are in your near future!!

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I took boards yesterday too!! I am in the same boat as you...I got the good pop up as well! I am on pins and needles waiting for my results. This is my second attempt as well. The first time I took the maximum amount of questions too. This time I took the minumum...so I am really scared I didn't pass! Good luck to you! I hope you passed! I hope we can find out before Monday!

I do believe the results will be posted in 48 hours.

Late response but I don't have quick results, I'm located in CA. I did pass though! I got my letter this past Thursday :)
