    SuperSara, Different states have different rules. I live in FL and they give you 3 tries...then require you to take a very expensive remedial course! Well, I did not have the money nor time to take the remedial course, and Georgia lets you take the NCLEX an unlimited number of times for up to 3 years after graduation. I took it in Georgia and plan to transfer my license back to FL. Look to see what your state requirements are! Good luck!

    Hey again! Wow, so you tried the trick and it would take you straight to the credit card page? How soon after testing did you check? I sure hope I passed; I've gotten my hopes way up! As for my studying techniques. The past 3 times I took it, I only focused on questions! (because everyone kept telling me that I know the material; I must just be bad at the questions) The thing is, I know myself better than anyone else. And, I knew that I had a content problem. So, I took the focus off of the question format, and more on what I needed to know to become a safe nurse. I kept reminding myself why I wanted to become a nurse in the first place. For me, I had to relearn basic content from Hurst and then once I thought I knew the material well enough, I started testing my knowledge with the Lipincott questions. That's what I did...I hope that helps. Try to put your nerves aside and have quality study time:-) As for meds, I am going to be completely honest with you...I did not study them very much. I learned the main meds like digoxin, lidocaine, -pril were ace inhibitors, -lol were beta blockers, etc. Maybe that wasn't the best way, but I knew I couldn't memorize drugs. I just learned basic classifications, studied main drugs and moved on. Hope this helps!

    Hey There, I just wanted to encourage you that I too have taken the nclex 4 times. I just took it for my 4th time yesterday morning at 8 am. Anyways, the first 2 times...I got the full 265. Third time, 185. Yesterday, 76! I truly feel that I passed (however, won't know until tomorrow) I would highly recommend the Hurst Review. It is $300, but I can honestly say it was a huge help! It focused on content more than question style...came with a full set of notes and videos to go along with it. Everything Marlene Hurst told us to study I saw on my nclex yesterday. She really challenges you to memorize the material and know it!! And, then I did Lipincott review questions as well. I did a hard core study this past week, memorizing everything in my Hurst notebook. I actually went to the library...amazing how much more productive studying I did, than when I studied at home. (with my 1 year old:-) I know how discouraged you must feel. I feel your pain! Good luck to you! You can do it! :)

    Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    hi! i have a question regarding the person vue trick. i took my exam yesterday morning, 8 am. the computer shut off at 76 questions. i had never heard of this "trick" before. anyways, i tried it 8 pm that night, and this message came up "records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. please contact your member board for further assistance. another registration cannot be made at this time." has anyone received this good message, and then it eventually let you through to the credit card screen? thanks:rolleyes:
