The one piece of outside advice that I got that helped me pass the NCLEX was "Do not do a subject review, do review questions." I went over at least 50 questions a day. NCLEX review books with CDs are great. If anything, just to the CD. The test is designed to assess minimum standard so knowing only the basics is enough to pass.Learning test taking tips and always, always, always reword the questions in your head. This will give you a better chance of avoiding trick questions. I know you'll do fine the next time. You seem like you really want this and that's a great future nurse trait . Good luck and never give up!
