  7. Hi guys this is the first time for me to post something here. So this is my story, i just took the nlex exam last september here in Oregon and failed it. it was really sad. i used up all the questions in the exam. and i was so sure that i failed coz i didnt know how to prioritize and delegate. and after 2 days i got my rezult!! failed.... after that day i borrowed kaplan from the lib and studied it, bought ncsbn, and kaplan qbank. my average score in kaplan was 62. im sooo nervous coz im gonna take it again this thursday!!! I also bought petersons. which i think is good too. do you think ill pass the nlex with my average score of 62? my scores in kaplan were like 55 percent to 77 percent. and a lot of them were 60s. Im really nervous. im hoping some of you have the same experience as mine. i need some enlightenment. thankyou!!:redbeathe:D:crying2: (mixed emotions) PS, this site is so awesome!! all the people here are just soooo nice!
