    I passed...............

    hey thanks ladysniper and jobimol, good luck for u ladysniper, i think the exam is not that difficult. IMO do the first 15 questions carefully then u will have more chances of passing, its just what i think.I had lot of pharmacology, newborn reflexex questions, 10 sata ,disaster triage questions, just concentrate on GI, endocrine, respiratory and cardiac system and drugs from these chapters. good luck. concentrate on each question,just dont think of anything else,take your break,do some breathing exercise to relax urself.just wishing u both good luck.

    the secret to passing the nclex

    During exam read each and every question carefully and all the answers,If u are doing good answers are not that easy to pick quickly,so just concentrate on each question,just relax loosen ur muscles and stay focussed.Also i felt you must really have to do well in the first 15 questions.good luck

    I passed...............

    hey i got around 10 SATA questions, lots and lots of pharmacology, i think around 30% was pharmacology related, and most of them where prioritization type, didnt got any math questions.Actually i thought i might fail because i made some simple questions wrong like one pediatric reflex question two or three pharm questions, the rest were all priritization and i didnt remember anything.I also took 75 questions and took lot of time for that, i took around 3 hrs for it eventhough thats not a good strategy. Dont worry you guys will make through it.If i can do it defenitely u guys can because am foreign educated,never had seen such question in student period.good luck.:up:
