I to failed with 265q. I was also told that my problem was lacking strategies as well as dealing with test anxiety. I used NCSBN my first attempt. I liked it a lot however for round two I've decided to take the leap and do the Kaplan online review / redo NCSBN / Saunders questions / and I'm using the nclex mastery app on my phone. My first attempt I was studying 12-16 hours a day, 7 days a week for a month and a half. This time I'm allowing only 4 hours a day, 5 days a week review followed by no more than 150 questions. I feel like this has helped me retain information rather than cramming. I feel confident this time, more so than my first attempt even though I have not scheduled a retake date. I'm not rushing this time with scheduling, I will know when I feel ready and I'm going to PASS and so will you my friend.
