    second NCLEX frustration

    I also graduated in May 2007, tested in August and failed and retook it in November and passed. It is natural to feel what you feel right now. One advise....you can always reschedule and regroup yourself. Focus on one (or possibly two, if needed) reviewer. I used Saunders combined with NCSBN on my second try and I passed with 75 questions. The first time I did Kaplan and failed with 265 questions. What helped me was that I went over and over the ones that I always have problems with. I prayed a lot....it helped me. Good luck to you.

    Good luck to tomorrows test-takers.........On behalf of all November test-takers who've already passed, I am spreading to you our blessings from the Almighty. Take your time reading the question, be calm, and pray, pray, pray---- it is very powerful. Good luck and let us know about your NCLEX experience.

    Je_da:We know your intention. No need to delete your previous message about the herbs. It's very helpful. Born-in-the-USA, Je-da took a lot of effort typing it down for the purpose of helping others. I myself am hurt with your poor choice of words. We are here to support each other, aren't we?

    need advice plsssss!!!!

    Virg2z: Like you I didn't pass my first NCLEX-RN exam. I'm happy to say that I passed my second try last week. What did I do diffently? Well, first of all, I was more prepared mentally, physically! I studied systematically the second time. I managed to do 100 questions per day. I concentrated using only two resources (Saunders and NCSBN). I rescheduled once because I felt that I wasn't ready. A week before my test I was still doing 100 questions per day. I was rewriting stuff that I keep forgeting. I find it helpful because I can visualize what I wrote. Two days before my test date, I just revisited lab values, and if something comes into my head that I needed to find out about, I went ahead and look it up. That's about it, I kept my books away and just relaxed. Good luck to you.
  7. Kaplan's minimum score to predict a good chance of passing is 65%. Kaplan's questions are harder than the real NCLEX. If you score in the 90%s you are more than ready to take it.

    Kaplan

    Well, I am not really the right person to give you advice about Kaplan. I took Kaplan review, did all the Question Trainers and Q-banks, but still didn't pass. Honestly, I found Kaplan to be harder than NCLEX. I guess, if you follow it religiously you'll do okay. It wasn't for me, because I had a different study technique. I took my second one last week and I passed....this time I followed Suzanne's plan. I combined it with NCSBN which was very much like NCLEX. I passed with 75 questions vs. failed with 265 using Kaplan.Don't get me wrong, there are many people who passed with Kaplan. I think the bottom line is your readiness and confidence. If you don't feel that you're ready, you can always reschedule your test date. That was my mistake in August. I hurried up in taking it. My advice to you is to do at least 100 NCLEX questions everyday -- study the rationales. Kaplan has good rationales, I give them credit for that. Good luck.

    Diahni: What you're feeling is very normal post-NCLEX. I am now starting to wonder if there is a medical diagnosis of post-NCLEX syndrome (hehehehe)...You'll do okay. Keep us posted. To Born2Brn, Kaikam, and Reddy-----good luck tomorrow. Stay calm, be positive, and pray, pray, pray.

    I took it again for the 2nd time today.....

    Sorry to hear that Platanos.......What did you use to study? I suggest that you take a little break for now (a week or two) and start studying again. If you are near passing, that means you just need to take inventory of what you are weak in. I followed Suzanne's tips plus NCSBN. I was successful in my second try with 75 questions. I studied for 3 months. Don't give up now, you can do it.

    I passed in 265 questions!

    Congratulations, McDreamy. Good luck in your career, RN.

    Congratulations Barbara, Chocolate, let's CELEBRATE, RNs. I'm glad many of November test takers are doing really well..........it's because we work hard and believe that all is possible in God's hands.

    Platanos: You're in my prayers. I know what you're going through. I've been there myself. I took my first one in August. I also had 265 questions. It was a shocked for me. I had a hard time accepting it. I took it for the second time last week and I successfully passed. I know it's hard when you have family depending on you. The waiting is hard........ relax for now. Let us know how it went. God bless.

    Chocolate, welcome to the club, RN! We are happy as a "family" at this forum to know that many of us are passing. God knows how bad we want this and HE knows that we will be good nurses. Go out there and prove to the whole world that you're one of the best. Good luck.To future test takers, Suzanne's plan has worked for so many of us. We hope that you do the same. God bless.
