second time i STUDIED my butt off.

i came on here used all the books and everything, i was prepared . i used lacharity, saunders, kaplan qbank .

Study as if you had never tested before. Get a review book, start with chapter 1 and go through the entire book. You don't need an elaborate schedule, just get a calendar and put each new chapter on the calendar at the interval that coincides with how many days, weeks, or months you have allotted yourself before your test date.

I completely understand how you feel. I failed twice and was almost 100% sure I passed on the second try. I put my all into studying the second time,and almost cried my eyes out when i saw my results.:eek: I was a pretty good student and had good grades in nursing school; and I can't understand why im having so much trouble passing this exam. Now I don't know where to begin with my third attempt because i feel like Ive used all my resources. Im also drained as well...any advice would be appreciated!!! Although I wanted to give up, I can't give up. I came too far and I wont stop until I have RN behind my name.

How have you been studying? Can you give me a detailed description of how you do it? (And I mean detailed here!). (For example - Do you study consistently each day, Do you do a section each day - i.e. fundamentals, GI,), hopefully you understand what I mean!) As much detail as you can give me would really be helpful. That way I can figure out how to be most helpful to you. Another question - Do you use one book or multiple books? Right now, take a few deep breaths and relax!! You passed nursing school and did very well--So you have the knowledge and know your stuff! Realize this and don't forget that!! The first thing I would do (Okay, second thing after sending me that detailed description of studying!! Aaah, I love details!!!) is look at Saunders (now I picked this particular book because, at least for me, it was easy to understand and it really broke down the test taking process -- here we go again -- details!!! Got to love 'em!!). Anyways, they have a section on "Test-Taking Strategies." Look it up in the table of contents -- not sure what edition you have -- but it should be listed there. Okay, so I need to get to the point here -- read that section. Actually study it religiously -- and understand their overall test taking process and how they ask their questions. That helped me tremendously. Sorry I kept blathering on, but you got to have some humor (to make you smile and feel better!!) mixed in with the serious stuff!! Hope this gives you some ideas to start!!

Oops!! Want to clarify something -- what I meant by reading Saunders is that they give an overall explanation of how to answer NCLEX type questions. Like I said it really helped me alot!!
