Thanks everyone I appreciate the congratulations. Well now looking back here are some tips i learned along the way.
1. Study/ read over material everyday. It doesnt matter if your doing a full 6hr study session or a 30 look over your notes. Get in the habit of looking over material bc as the days pass youll start memorizing and learning things instead of trying to re-learn everytime you sit down. Itll save you time in the long run.
2. Commit to your study guide, it be a bought one or not. It was super important for me to have a structured study plan. Bc my test was so far in advanced it was easy to lose track. I personally bought the Kaplan Nclex RN- ON demand study guide. That helped me stay on track and they offer lots of resources, most importantly TONS of questions.
(Achill08- your right about there being a million different resources for nclex, i was so lost my self. The reason i chose kaplan was bc my roomates and many other people in my cohort bought it and felt it was really good. On top of that i also researched on many different forums for other peoples point of view and what finally caught my attention was that i kept reading kaplan helps you best with learning how to answer these tricky questions, as well as catching up on content. Its easy to get overwhelmed with everything so i recommend choosing one study guide after researching it and committing to it.)
3. Find a consistent study place where you can be free from distractions and really concentrate. I found this really cool coffee shop by my house that had a separate study room. They had free wifi, good coffee and a studious atmosphere. I also recommend finding a study buddy. Unfortunately i never could find one as committed as i was but it helps! Just having someone else there studying with you, even if its not for nclex, always helped me stay focused longer.
-If i remember anything else ill post it up-
*DISCLAIMER- I just want to say i did not pass bc just i bought the Kaplan review guide, i passed bc i put in many hours of studying and reviewed tons of questions and content. You have to put in the work and sacrifice consistently.
