4th attempt

So I posted a few weeks ago about how I received my cpr in the mail after my third time at the nclex-rn. I got all 265 questions and was near passing in every category.

I started studying again & rescheduled my exam for about 5 weeks from now, being that I had to wait 45 days before retaking it. I am going to do kaplan again (still have all the qbank and online lectures), I have purchased the Saunders 6e Q+A book and I just purchased the Remar review quick facts 2015 book as well as the Kaplan 300 medications you need to know book.

Just looking for any advice and/or study tips. I am not giving up and I am just so ready to pass this exam and start my life as an RN!! Thank you all

Hi! I am too going to take my nclex RN for the 4th time after my 45day probation period. What are you doing this time around differently? I am thinking about getting a tutor but it's very expensive. Have you gotten a tutor before? I'm so frustrated because I feel I know what the content of the question is but I guess I am answering the correct answer but not the "BEST" answer. Do you ever feel that way? Anyway, you're not alone in this. And we must believe and keep going!

Hi! I am too going to take my nclex RN for the 4th time after my 45day probation period. What are you doing this time around differently? I am thinking about getting a tutor but it's very expensive.

Hi! Yes I'm so glad you posted this because at this point I do feel alone in this! This time around I made myself a study plan and I'm sticking to it everyday. I'm doing about 50-100 questions a day and then I go over each one and see why I got that answer wrong or right. For the stuff I am confused about, I am going through content and refreshing my mind. No, I have not got a tutor and personally, I don't plan on getting one. I have a few friends that are helping me out who are already RN's and it's getting a little easier having someone else explain something from their point of view and me explaining my rationale out loud. I always feel that way with the correct answer but not the best, but I'm learning to think "nclexy" as my professors used to say! Nclex has a certain way of asking questions. Just read through the question and ask yourself what is this question REALLY asking. Once you have the down pat I think the answer choices fit better. I hope this helps us both!! Good luck to you on your next exam, and feel free to message me if you have any questions while studying :)
