anyone care to share their study schedule for preparing for NCLEX? good luck everyone!
Some people don't even have one. They just schedule the test, then dig into their review book and go for it until test day. I think it is a good idea to get a calendar and map out a schedule with some extra days here and there for those subjects that need more time.
I am actually scheduled to take mine June 1st. I am using the Kaplan review and I have it mapped out which days to take which questions trainers and what not and then over the weekend I plan on reading over more rationales, reviewing isolations stuff, looking over lab values one last time, and reading through things that I had problems with.
My schedule was 2-3 hrs of studying/reading then testing myself on whatever I just studied. I finished Saunders, Lacharity and Kaplan books word to word. I made flashcards, cheat sheets, drawings...whatever it takes for me to understand the concepts. Took me about a 1 1/2 month. Passed NCLEX 1st try with 75 Q's. I thought NCLEX is easier than lacharity prioritization book. Hope this helps!
I take my test June 23 & took the Kaplan course so I know what you're talking about. I tried doing the question bank.. im just getting overwhelmed because there is so much material.. I like the idea of the 2-3 hour of content reiew and testing on that section.. The way Kaplan has it mixed up I wish they would have broken down each section into subjected categories so after reviewing there were questions on those topics.. thanks for the helpful techniques
