Hello everyone. I'm just here to share my story about the resources I used for the NCLEX. I graduated July 27, 2019. I received my ATT 4 days later on July 30. (I did my application payment and Pearson vue payment 4 weeks before school ended). I started studying the week after I graduated. I started using Lippincott. I really liked it. After that I used Kaplan. I hated the rationales. I did few Saunders questions. Lastly, I used Uworld. Uworld was a life savor. Once I got Uworld, I stopped using the other resources. Uworld really and truly prepared me for the NCLEX.
The day I went to take my test I came in confident. My classmates described the NCLEX as being terribly hard. I didn't let that get to me. By the time I finished my test, my thought was "Is this it?" To me it was not what my classmates described. To me it was fairly easy. I owe it all to Uworld. I constantly did questions and reviewed the rationales (didn't care if I got them right or wrong. I wanted to understand the rationales and why a questions was right or wrong). I'm a visual learner and Uworld has pictures, charts, and the best rationales. Very similar to the NCLEX. I start the LPN-RN next Fall and when I finish, I will only use Uworld to study.
I hope my experience helps someone.
