My name is Zach and I will take my NCLEX in 2 weeks for the 2nd time. I just want you guys to assess if I'm ready to retake it. First of all, I failed at 140Q (near passing; 1 above) 20 SATA, 10 Order Q, 3 meds, no math, 1 picture). My first try, I did Hurst and Lacharity. My Hurst Q reviews were 75, 90, 84, 83. I studied about 2-3 weeks for the test.
Now, I studied about 5 weeks already and different things I did were learning ext, kaplan QT, and still hurst. I finished the learning ext program and average in the range of 65-75 on their QB after reviewing hurst content (I would say my average is in the 68%, I had more 60's than 70's). Kaplan QT I have 55-62 range for QT1-QT5. I will save QT 6 and 7 on the week before my test.
Today, I took Hurst Q Review 6 and 7 and made 75 on both exam (one of the test had only 117Q for some reason). This scared me because I was making 90's and 80's on my Hurst, I was supposed to be more prepared this time around but I scored lower =(
Should I move my test in Oct (I'm poor, I can't afford blowing off 325 per test) or should I gamble and take it.
Thanks in advance fellas
