    Saunders 4th or 5th edition?

    I'd stick with the 4th ed and get another book on practice questions if you could..

    where should i rely on the lab values?

    Don't stress too much on the lab values.. Just choose one material, i used the lab values of Saunders.. The lab values on the NCLEX were really either too high or too low.. hope that helps

    How u apply kaplan 2010-2011 strategies

    To tell you the truth I wasnt really able to use all of the strategies of Kaplan.. I just looked at the question and answers.. Then it would depend from there.. I only used the ABC's, Maslows, Acute vs Chronic, and Assessment vs Implementation.. Don't stress yourself on using the strategies. Just know the concepts well and keep answering questions, eventually you'll get the hang of answering questions

    Taking NCLEX-RN next week

    @puprlechicxiii I would really recommend Rachell Allen.. I felt that I was ready when taking the exam.. Even when I was taking my exam I knew I would pass.. Because I was able to learn and understand the concepts very well through Rachell Allen's Program Are you in the Philippines right now?

    Just keep doing practice questions.. dont mind how many you got correct, whats important is how much you absorbed.. goodluck!

    Help Failed my NCLEX twice!

    I went to Rachell Allen Reviewers in the Philippines. A lot of my classmates from the review were re-takers.. they said that Kaplan and Hurst didn't work for them.. So they went back to the Philippines just to review.. They have a really good program.. it'll take you 35days to complete the program.. I took the exam on Nov 18 and passed!

    Nclex preparation and requirements

    hi! i just took the NCLEX on nov 18, 2011 and passed, i'm now a CA RN.. im also a US Citizen and studied in the Philippines.. NCLEX no matter where you take it is still the NCLEX.. It doesnt matter where you take it.. Also the processing time is still the same.. i would only consider the time it takes the mail to arrive.. because Cali sends mail through snail mail so it takes around 3-4 weeks to get to the Philippines.. but its better to process it while your still in the Philippines, because Cali requests a lot of paper work especially if your foreign educated.. go to rn.ca.gov to check the requirements..

    Help!! Taking NCLEX on Thursday!

    Just relax.. i took the test on nov 18 with 75q's and passed.. i did as much as the same number of practice questions as you 2 weeks before the exam also.. but i tried not to pay attention to whether i got the question right or wrong.. i just made sure that i knew the rationales whether i knew it or not.. what's important is how much you absorbed, not how much you got correct.. after the test i felt that the kaplan questions were even harder than the nclex questions. Remember to relax at least a day or 2 before the exam.. Goodluuck and Gobless!

    Fingerprint Card Problem

    by the way.. i haven't gone through fingerprinting yet.. thinking that if i go through it, that it would be a problem.. would the NBI here in the Philippines know if the card is still good for use?
