I took the new version yesterday, I cant begin to tell you how hard it was. I scored in top 95th %tile for my exit by Hesi (which is MEGA hard). But NCLEX was a whole other story.
I studied the same material that a friend did from a prep class and she passed but I didn't even see even 2 of the same questions as her, I totally bombed. Quit job and studied like a dog.
Lots of infection control, few delegation, mostly first priority diseases, check all that apllies, fuzzy unclear animated images to identify, crap load of meds, not too much math, few peds and maternity.
No cute little encouragement popups like others, just frustrating through & through. Don't know how i will ever pass.
I don't know what to tell future test takers other than study any and everything.
