First, I would like to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving! We all have people and life moments to be so grateful for.
Secondly, I wanted to see if I may receive some help (tips, recommendations, etc)
I am a retaker, and honestly it's difficult to figure out what to study after a couple of attempts.
what I've used before: hurst, ati, pda, saunders, Kaplan strategy, ncbsn, lippincott's alternate-format, online nclex questions, ...that's all I can recall at the moment.
I don't know what other resource to use anymore. And the ones I can think of or have been suggested are so pricey.
I'm seriously starting to think I have testing issues because I do well when I practice and I get to taking the exam and I don't follow through like I do when practing.
I have analyzed my CPR report and my below passing are management of care, safety and infection control, & psychosocial (this is the worst!). The rest all near pass.
I don't know how to prepare for next time I retake again,. I don't know what resources to use, cause I really can not afford expensive stuff right now or anytime soon. I've done so many questions, so it's not about the amount of questions I've done.
In school, I have remained at a B with an A here and there but majority are Bs no C.
A big part of me feels that I rush when answering questions. Like I rush so much at times I don't see key things (child age, home care, etc the key things that helps select the best answer from the correct answer). And I've worked to correct this problem.
Or maybe I don't know my contents enough, I really don't know anymore.
