Scheduled my nclex for Aug.12th. Any suggestions!!!!!

Students NCLEX



I graduated in Apr 09 and have made my appointment through pearsonvue here in Cali and I want some tips from those of you that have taken the test recently. How did you study? What materials worked for you? How many hours/day and days a week did you study? Did study groups work for you? Give me all the info you got. Im nervous. Thanks

What worked for me....

My school had a three day NCLEX review course through ATI but I think ATI is crap anyway. So what I really did was use study books (Kaplan NCLEX Strategies, Kaplan NCLEX Meds, Saunders NCLEX Review Questions). Studied for two weeks straight 4/5 hours each day. Passed with 75Q. Do as many questions as you can up until the day before the test. Then take a breather and then go for the gold.... Good Luck!

Saunders Comprehensive Review. Do as many questions as possible each day and study the rationales. Read the Prioritization book by Linda LaCharity. Relax the day before the test.
