I think Kaplan is great but it's not for everyone. The question style is similar to NCLEX but it doesn't give you much info on content. In order to utilize Kaplan effectively, you would have to build the core of your brain which is all knowledge. Kaplan teaches how to tackle a question but then again, if you read the rationales, you are also learning content. I'm not sure how you read 2 entire nclex books in the span of 1 month & and half (Kudos to you!). I think for the 2nd time around, you don't need to do that. Focus more on what you need to learn as opposed to how much you're learning. I honestly did not really use a content book because I took it right after graduation & I felt like Kaplan was good enough for me. I just focused on the questions/rationales and then opened up any content book I had and only studied the section I needed to brush up on (I probably read a total of 20 pages worth of content). It's not necessary to read the whole book unless you've been out of school for some time. You've made it this far to take the NCLEX... Finishing nursing school is a big accomplishment but you're next goal is to destroy the NCLEX and I believe you can do that the 2nd time around! BTW, I only scored in the 60s for my question trainers and the Qbank which I think is good.
