    Hurst Review Opinion?

    I found that hurst didn't cover a lot of the topics that were covered on my test...

    NCLEX Registration help!

    I agree with Okami your ID needs to match your application/ registration to a T... Maybe go to the DMV and just tell them that u need your named changed/fixed and they will resend I one b4 your test day ? Just a thought.

    3X a charm finally passed NCLEX RN

    Hi @lieloo thanks I paid for 10 private sessions but it also came with 24 mp3s for content , a 265 practice exam , when she tutors u she goes over 12-15 questions per session has u answer them and then goes over each.. She gives u concepts more than what she already does on her youtube video.. The concepts I learned from her helped me on most if not more than half of my test questions. I would recommend her if one has the money to do so.

    3X a charm finally passed NCLEX RN

    Hey all ! Just wanted to start of by saying thanks to all the people who post/ reply to personal experiences on the NCLEX ... Like most I am posting my story here in hopes it helps someone along the way through this battlefield we call the NCLEX.. I graduated in May of 2014 gave my first try in July .. I used hurst , it was a good review for content but not so much of critical thinking some may disagree but that is just my personal opinion. I did the sample tests and was doing okay so I told myself ehhh no need to read the rationales WRONG:no: .. I failed at 89.. SECOND try I took KAPLAN it was good they are geared towards more critical thinking... I did all the qbank and q trainers I was scoring high 50's and low 60's .. During this time things were rough personally and I didn't spend as much time on my review it showed because I failed again at 265.... I couldn't blame anything or anyone else except for myself and I knew I needed to change how I prepared for the third and final time, THIRD try Instead of getting my money back from kaplan I asked to retake there course and use it to its entirety, I did all the questions read all the rationales and used the content book for anything that I needed to brush up on, I also did private tutoring with AnnaLiese Garrison ( some may know her from her 8 essential concepts from YouTube) she was amazing she really helped me focus on what the questions were really asking and how to not fall in the common " traps" of the nclex... After a grueling two months of hard work I took the test this past Thursday and found out today that I passed after answering 78qs :) .. My advice : whatever review u choose make sure u use it to its entirety , read your rationales even the ones u get right , don't try and memorize everything there is no way your going to know everything, and lastly believe in yourself ... You can do this ! Good luck to all the future RNs and test takers... Blessings and we'll wishes for all ! CT RN,BSN

    3 weeks till nclex

    Hey everyone just out of curiosity how many weeks did you study for the nclex -RN ? I'm getting so anxious cause I feel like I am not prepared and only have three weeks left... but as I have seen on here its a completely normal feeling. I have accepted the fact that I'm not going to know everything and I can only do my best but sometimes I get those " what if " questions in my head... Gahhh I just want this to be over and done with. I also purchased that 97 page review anyone on here find it helpful ? Thanks in advance !!!

    Kaplan practice exams

    Hi guys does anyone know if the 4 nursing practice exams ( NOT the qtrainers or q bank ) if they are separate questions or are they questions used from the qbank? Thanks

    Nclex invalidated due to cell phone

    AN members aren't allowed to tell you " what course of action to take " BUT I am suggesting that you do some homework on what the outcomes can be if you choose one or the other option via Pearson vue. After reading the other stories about the same situation they both are very different approaches in making a ruling if you can or cannot re sit for boards.

    Hurst online review anyone???

    Hurst questions are way to easy.... But don't let my opinion refrain from giving hurst all you got here are many who have passed with it too. Good luck !

    Hurst online review anyone???

    I used hurst the first time and failed with it ... I'm now doing kaplan but I think it just depends on what u need content or strategy.... After sitting for boards I did realize that kaplan questions are sooooo like nclex...
