1st time I used Kaplan and read the entire book and failed at 75 questions. I cried for almost a week, I felt I couldnt pass that test no matter what I did.
2nd time I focused more on how to answer questions. I didnt read a book, I didnt focus on content because by reading your rationals you are already getting content. I bought NCSBN, La Charity and the last week I did one Kaplan Q trainer per day. I did from 200-250 questions daily, and i read every single rational and wrote them down because that helps me retain info, I used binaural beats on youtube also to retain info and stay focused, I dont know if it was a placebo effect or not but it did helped me. I didnt read pharm, or any specific topic. I just did questions and tried to understand every single one of the rationals. I used 3 weeks to study. The last day I didnt really study, I went and got my manicure and pedicure and at night I read the 35 pages that is circulating around.
The day of the exam I did 265 questions in 5 hours, got home and tried the pvt trick with a gift card and got the good pop up. And the following morning saw my name on the BON page with a BIG PASS !!
Im so happyyy , I feel so relieved. If I could do it, you can do it too. Ohh I also looked up arrhythmias on pinterest so that I could see what they looked like and what drugs they needed and their complications and boy was I glad I did that ðŸ˜œ
Good Luck!!!!! Any questions, please feel free to pm me
