Tested on 6.15 at 8am. Was wringing my hands for the next 48 hours, but all was well (looked at the Quick Results this morning).
Some things to note:
> You will not necessarily get all question format types on your exam. I only got a few of them, got no dosage calc, and it worried me when my computer screen blued-out after question 75.
> The folks at Hurst act as if their review service is the be-all end-all of NCLEX prep, but I didn't find them to be helpful at all. If you don't feel like Hurst has helped you, don't worry about it, because you aren't the only one - and it doesn't mean that you'll fail NCLEX. Personally, I found ATI to be far superior to Hurst.
> If your testing center offers ear plugs or noise-cancelling headphones, USE THEM. I am not someone who gets distracted by little sounds while I'm focusing on an exam, but I have to say that having the sound of my fellow test-takers clicking mouses, sighing, and shifting in their seats blunted/cut out by the noise-cancelling headphones took my concentration to a whole 'nother level. I felt like I was the only person for miles. Use those blasted things if they're available.
> I got my quick results 48 hours after my scheduled exam start time, and not a minute sooner than that (I'm in Texas). Fortunately an entire day was eaten up by work, so I wasn't brooding over it during that time.
> I took my exam in my new home city, and made a point to go to the testing center the day before, time the drive, figure out where I would be able to park, and actually go up to the office (my testing center was a suite inside a Wells Fargo bank building) so I knew exactly where I needed to go.
> Leave your phone at home or in the car. Don't bother bringing anything extra with you, aside from your ID and maybe a bottle of water (which you can't take with you into the room - they offered us lockers).
> The day before you test, chill out. Just give yourself a break and don't stress any more than necessary (easier said than done, I know).
Best of luck to everyone getting ready to test! Once it's all over, you'll feel like the weight of the world has dropped off of your shoulders!
