I started Kaplan on Dec 25... I just feel like i should be doing more. Not sure why really. Guess its just nerves. Good luck to you and let me know how it goes... Im going to try the PVT, I had a dream last night that I got the "good pop up" So praying that it goes that way :)

What were your scores like for the qbank? and did you think the qbank was a good rep of the actl exam?

Took Kaplan, passed with 80 questions first time. I thought Kaplan was wayyyyy better than our crappy ATI tests at school. Dont know much about Saunders.

Good Luck to you! I sat for my exam this morning after completing 100% (though I had 111 ?s left) of the Qbank and all 7 Question Trainers. My tested ended after 75 questions and a decent amount of SATA (I didn't count them b/c I felt like it would create unnecessary stress for me). I definitely know I had more than 10, LOL!

I definitely don't think you should study the night before--you need to give your mind a break, so that its fresh and ready for test day. Have confidence in yourself. You can do this, let us know how it goes!!

This has ALWAYS been a rule of thumb for me for any of my exams...throughout nursing and beyond! No questions the day before the exam and get lots of rest the night before. A well rested mind does well! ;)
