To the OP, I completely agree with all that you have said. I found the QBank questions to be way more challenging and at times the rationales were quite contradictory. However, that being said, now that I've taken the NCLEX, I'm glad that I made the choice to take Kaplan. As far as content - either you know it or you don't. I think doing practice questions is a GREAT way to jog your memory about information that you may have filed away - and even if you don't know specific content, if you understand the pathophysiology of diseases, and you know the desired/side/adverse affects of major drug classes, you can use the tools that Kaplan teaches to get to the right answer. There is sooooooo much content that it's impossible for someone to retain every bit of that information. When I started the NCLEX, the questions were worded so similar/confusing as the Kaplan questions, and I was relieved that it wasn't the first time I was seeing questions like that. I think our instructor was pretty great, too, so that probably helped some. Overall, I think it's a really useful program and I'm glad that I took it. Now I'm just anxiously awaiting my results - it's AGONIZING!!! LOL. Good luck in your studies and on your exam.
