Hey y’all!

For those of you that have passed the NCLEX already, what sources did you use to study? I take my NCLEX in June and would like to start studying now to get ahead. Thanks!

Are you in your final semester? I used UWorld my final semester to help me get through Complex Med/Surg, and am now using it to study for NCLEX. The rationales are amazing. The Saunders book is also good to brush up on weak areas.

Hello! Yes, I am in my final semester of nursing school. I’ll definitely buy UWorld and buy a used Saunders book. Thank you for your feedback!

I used nurse plus academy, it was excellent.   My test stopped at 75 questions.   I freaked out because almost every question was select all that apply.    Trust your muscle memory, don't second guess yourself.   I was going to change a lot of questions in which case I would have failed but I passed.  One of my instructor's told me your first instinct is probably right and she was right.   Study those SATA questions for sure.  Apparently if your doing good on those you get more of them.   To me those questions are the hardest.
