I failed the first time with 265 questions and passed the second time with 75. I used ATI review ( I had already paid for it and went thru it once so I redid it) exam cram which I loved, lacharity (loved that one too), NCSBN (although I didnt get through the whole thing) and my note cards with drug endings and pneumonics. I used Saunders for content on my weak areas. I only studied about 3-4 hours a night and took a day off here or there. I gave myself 45 days between the 1st test and the 2nd. Took the first week off because I had just found out I failed and hit the books. Oh I also used this site alot for the support and encouragement. Good luck with your studying. This was what I did and it worked out for me.

I am taking my test for the 3rd time as well and hope everyone well on their next try. No one understands how it feels to see FAIL 2x's! It takes a beating on your ego and confidence, but we have to get up and try again! Like one of the writers said, we made it through Nursing school and we can make it through this as well. We are fighting for this title, which only means that we will appreciate it that much more!! Good luck to everyone!!!!!

thanks guys... and you are right we did survive the battle of nursing school/college, if we can do that then eventually we will get that RN title & win the battle of the crazy nclex exam

ATI is assessment technologies institute....im not sure about their specific nclex reviews and or courses or whatever it is that they offer but i do know that many nursing programs use it as an added review and assessment tool during their programs. Including my nursing program....i personally did not like it when i was in school...but im not too sure about their nclex prep....as far as what i remember from their assessments during school....it was difficult and the questions were not as well compared to those of nclex as those of kaplan

hey guys.. I will also be reatking my nclex rn exam this month. I cannot believe how quick October has arrived. This month i am claiming it b/c i want and need this to be it for me, as my journey has been long and challenging, not a s long as some that i have read on here, but it has been long just the same. With the grace and help of God plus my studying that i have put it, i know that the Lord is gonna let me claim it this time around and so can others. Reach for the stars b/c we all can do this and will do this!!!!!!!
