Hello, I am new to the site here!

I graduated in December 2016, took the NCLEX on January 20th failed with 265 questions. close but not close enough :( Currently awaiting ATT for second attempt at this darn test

Since failing I have started NCSBN 5 week course.

I am having issues with NCSBN, I am a good memorizer I see a question and answer and can pick that right away. Therefore in NCSBN I am answering and if its wrong and I look at it even once I'm memorizing . I am writing rationales down etc. but do not feel this is really helping me !

What did you do to help in passing this test> I can take HURST in march when they come to ohio live.

thought about buszta.. but want to make a good decision. input ideas help success stories of failing first attempt what you did to rock second attempt??

THANK YOU!

Really depends on what your weakness is. I did Hurst and I felt it was good in terms of content review. Granted you still need to go back and study the book you filled out but it was good overall. Also try UWorld. I'm sure everyone here has talked about it once or twice already and it seems to work for a lot of people. I graduated the same time as you. Why did you test so early if you don't mind me asking and what was your study technique before taking your first exam?

I graduated in December and failed NCLEX with 265 questions too. I am waiting for my ATT to retest. The first time around, I didn't really study much. My school has a high pass rate, and my classmates that took it before me said it was a breeze and they only used uworld. I used uworld for 2 weeks and didn't finish the Qbank. Big mistake. I can't believe I went into the biggest test of my life unprepared. This time I am doing the HURST review (was provided by our school) Im going back over all those notes/videos and doing the Q reviews and Uworld. I also have the Saunders review book to look up content I don't understand. I also plan to get the Lacharity PDA book. Stay positive. We will pass this time!!!

I also failed my first attempt but I passed on my second attempt! It happens! Just stay focused and do practice questions! I also used to listen to different nclex reviews on YouTube as I was driving. I bought the nclex mastery app for my iPhone, got rid of fb, ig so that when I got bored and reached for my phone my only option was doing some practice questions on the nclex app.

Good luck! You can do this!
