I am using Saunders to study for Nclex. I just started and am getting grades in the 70's on the exams. (I havent reviewed any nursing content yet.)

Does anyone know what grades I should be getting in order to pass NCLEX??

Thanks.

I see no one responded. If you dont know the answer and you used saunders to prepare for Nclex and passed nclex, can you please post the average grades that you got on saunders CD exams before nclex???

Thanks!

I don't think saunders has released any certain score that needs to be achieved to pass the nclex. When I did the saunders book I got in the 70s on most, but when I got less than 75 I would review the content in that chapter. I also read all of the rationales for every question regardless of whether I got it right or wrong. I haven't taken the nclex yet so I can't tel you in in the 70s is a "good" score. I do think that the questions in saunders are much easier compared to the questions from kaplan.

Hi. My reference was Saunders. Saunders helps you analyze the questin and may give you strategy on how to attack the question,but in my experience Nclex is not as easy as that. Continue reading ang answering questions to develop more analization ang prioritization. Before I took my exam,My average range from 78-84%.No one could say if you are going to passed or not,just continue answerin and reading question and believe in yourself.Pray before your exam.

I agree with smackdown,Saunders question is much easier than Kaplan. I find kaplan hard,but the most important thing is to know the Rationales for you to understand.I have read kaplan also,but it was too discouraging on my part.But then I again,even if I got higher in saunders and lower in kaplan,the most important thing is to analys and learn from it.

I also did Saunders everyday at least 100 questions for about 6 weeks prior to my nclex. Took the test and passed. I was very comfortable when taking the exam b/c the format mirrored the Saunders cd questions.

When studying I started out with 60's, best score was 85. Mostly in the high 70's though. (I was #2 in my nursing school class, got high 90's on most every exam while in school)

BTW I found that with each wrong answer, I took the time to read the strategy & rational, and made a short note about it, helped to reinforce how the nclex wants the question answered.

I think what helped the most though was answering 100's of questions prior to the exam, so that I learned how to read the question and think in nclex fashion.

Best to you.

No worries! Getting in the mid 70's is great...keep in mind, the comprehensive exams covers EVERYTHING! I myself am getting similar scores in the Saunders Comp book. It's amazing what a positive attitude can do-wake up every morning and write your name with RN after it:) It is going to happen before you know it! You can do it-I know you'll pass! Good luck to all-try to balance studying with fun (if you're at the movies with your friends don't be thinking "I should be studying." Be still.
