    Failed NCLEX 3 times

    READ saunders and uworld. Practice questions, nclex is really hard for me coz I only used Saunders. My husband used uworld and I could say it will help you to understand question. I passed nclex for the 1st try at 75 questions for 2hrs and 10 minutes. I read the questions word by word and I did not care if there is 265 questions which is wrong lol. Be patient and practice more it will help you. Don't loose hope dear!

    NCLEX SHUTS OFF AT 75 ITEMS

    PLEASE TAKE SOME TIME TO READ Hi guys! Took my NCLEX exam this month and I felt the disappointment like every test takers that was writing in this site. I would say that I felt 50-50 after taking the exam at 75 questions, I was quite happy I finished at 75 but unsure if I PASSED or not. I had 16 SATA's, 3 drag and drop, lot of prioritization's and 1 image. The contents of my exam are about infection control, OB, PAEDS, community health, med surg, delegation and research. I was waiting for any computations and simple questions but literally I have not answered any easy questions (like side effects, positioning). I only used Saunders Comprehensive Review book 5th edition and uploaded the pdf in google, downloaded it on my phone to review. I also used the Saunders Exam app in Apple store to use as my review questions and THAT'S IT. I haven't use Uworld, Kaplan etc. just SAUNDERS. On the day of the exam, I did not bring any food or drinks because I was assuming to finish at 75 and thought I can go outside to buy some but they said that was not allowed, they are strict on their rules. So the stress and anxiety was added because I need to finish fast and if not I will be hungry on the next 265 questions. I answered the questions word by word so I took my time for 2hours and 10 minutes to be exact and answered the survey/research for 20 minutes. I can say that if I go along with 265 questions, 6 hours was not enough for me. I went home wondering if I will pass or not, I even told my mom I might fail but she said it's fine as long as you gave your best. I must say I am quite confident that I will since I googled some of my questions and my answer was mostly correct, I literally memorized the questions. I want to RECOMMEND to use Uworld because it will help you to answer difficult question and will train you on how to attack this unusual questions which I find hard to answer because I only used Saunders which only asks simple and based on the book type of questions. I would say that NCLEX asks common sense/brain draining type of questions because it consists of prioritization's, I don't know but that is what I felt. Working in a hospital based setting will help you to answer easily and understand the questions. Saunders will help you to gain base knowledge and I thank that book for helping me reach the ladder for my future career. I can say to know if you likely pass at 75 questions are: - you are answering lot of sata's, prioritization's - answering moderate-easy questions on the very last part of your exam - if you compare on the middle part of part of the exam it is really different ( it means that the computer have decided you passed their mark/standard.) - answering straight correct answers on the last part but the question was all the same level of difficulty. - noticed that if you answer two right questions they will give you the hard question right away After onerous 62 hours of waiting, I received my result yesterday via email (quick result) and I passed. 🥳🥳🥳 THANK YOU for reading. God bless!
