You've had a couple of days to feel discouraged, now make up your mind to get it going. Get a review book and get started. Saunders Comprehensive Review is a good choice. Good luck.

thanks for the advice, i know this is what i want to do, im just scared to take it again and not pass, i just bought the green saunders book

You should read this book- NCLEX Review:Strategies and Skills by Nancy A. Dibona.One of my Nursing instructors recommended it. This book will help your with your test taking skills. Just continue to study and stay Encouraged and Focused. I checked this book out from my local library just in case you didn't want to spend any more money on a Book. Good Luck!!!

I just took my Boards the 7th, and found out I passed today. I had the saunders NCLEX book and ATI from school, but hardly had time to do it... I was actually scoring below the benchmark on the ATIs, but I was trying to keep my brain going. On top of that I had mostly choose all that apply questions, which I am terrible at, and the Meds I have never seen before.

My test stopped at 87 questions. What helped me, was that I read the question, read the answers then reread the question. Some of the answers you can eliminate just because they are not actually answering what is being asked. I honestly was unsure on alot of the questions, but eliminated what didnt make sense or wasnt actually answering what was being asked.

I also reviewed the process of the CAT, and how it works, which gave me some relief, In the Saunders book at the beginning it says that It will ask you a question, if you get it right it will give a more difficult question, one wrong an easier etc... I figured since I kept getting the choose all that apply, which in general are a little harder, it actually gave me relief.

The best advice I can give, because I dont even know where you would begin either, the test is so random and on everything, is Process of elimination, reading the question, and what it is really asking. I hope this helps!

dont give up we in tyhe same boat and we will study hard cus we can do this god bless

The NCLEX PN is a hard exam, I didn't realize it until not too long ago. You are expected to know alot of pharmacology and assessment skills. It can be done though don't give up! These forum has tons of great information that is all FREE!

I am so sorry. That test is really hard. I am not sure if I even passed yet. When did you take it and did you do the Pearson Vue trick?? Keep your eye on the prize, you can do it. You are not the only one that failed and you will not be the last. NCLEX is no joke and I am surprised more people are not successful. Keep your head up!:redpinkhe

What material did you review before you took it?

yeah i think that this time around im really gonna read the answers over n over and think about what the questions really asking, i took my test on 21st dec, i cant take it again till feb now, i used the kaplan book to study and the hessi evolve book

@nurses1 I took the Kaplan class and that is all I did. I did all the questions they gave in the question trainers. I think it helped. Do you guys know anyone that got the bad pop up/credit card page in 2011?
