So I just finished my test about 1 hours ago, and I can not even begin to explain the nervousness I am having.
So a little about me, I finished my ADN December 18th, 2014. After LOT'S of issues with getting my ATT... I finally took it today. I'm glad I had weeks to study. It truly helped. I finished the test with 75 questions... But that does not make me feel good at all because either I did really good, or really bad and I'm a bundle of nerves right now! I swear to you, once I hit about the 25 question mark, I got nothing but SATA! Over and over with maybe a few regulars thrown in there.
I don't know if I have passed but for studying I used:
Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination, 5th Edition I reviewed area's I knew I was weak in and did every practice questions and TONS from the CD which came with the book.
Hurst Reviews NCLEX-RN Review book
I used this mainly for the strategies, thought I did do the majority of the questions.
Exam Cram NCLEX-RN Practice Questions [book]
I liked how small this book was and took it everywhere in my purse, so I could practice questions during down time.
Prioritization, Delegation, and Management of Care for the NCLEX-RN
Great book to have! I read front to back, yet I got no questions on Delegation and only a few on Prioritizing.
NCLEX-RN Flashcard Book
I used this, but it wasn't my favorite.
My school was very ATI heavy. We took most of the practice quizzes during the years and I retook most of them in the last few months for practice. I also took the ATI predictor test and got a (82% I think) 99% chance of passing NCLEX score.
NCSBN Online Review
I did the 3 week plan about 6 weeks ago to brush on my content, I also did about half the practice questions in the time I had. I really liked this site. The questions were great and I liked how their were delivered.
Well wish me luck as I wait the dreaded 48 hours for my results....
