I promised myself to write what I did after I take test 2 so here we go (pass or fail):
Ok so I took my first NCLEX on July 24st and failed at ~140Q. I studied for about 3 weeks for it. Near passing in all section. I studied hurst q trainer and lacharity. I didn't do content, just questions.
After I failed, I took 2 weeks off and resumed to studying (about 5 weeks of studying for the 2nd test). I studied the hurst book and videos for about 2 weeks straight (really know this book, especially the day 1 electrolyte chapter). I also borrowed my friends NCSBN because she passed already and had 2 weeks left on the account, did only the question bank and rationale at least twice. Finally I did the kaplan Q trainer 1-7 (Qt6=59% Qt=57%). Reviewed all the rationale at least twice. I also have a full time job so it was kind of hard to focus. Deleted all my social media accounts (fb, ig, and didn't play video games anymore)
So today I took the NCLEX and stopped at Q 78 or 79 (I don't remember). 20 SATA, 5 DRAG and DROP, 2 PICTURE QUESTION, and 1 EXHIBIT SATA. My last question was a prioritization and I know I got the question right (thanks to Kaplan). Got home, tried the pearson vue new trick, used a credit card without balance and got the good pop up. "our records indicate that this candidate has a test scheduled already...blah blah blah"
Just hope I passed this time. I felt more confident after taking the exam. I guess official result will come out tomorrow or will probably they my name on BON for my name.
Thank you guys !
Don't be discouraged after failing!
