It's Monday now, and still no option to pay for quick results and I'm still getting the same pop-up ugh! I don't know what's going on?!

Keep in mind that you tested on Friday, there were probably no humans investigating on the weekend. This is the first business day following your test.

Torture!!! I know I was on pins and needles, so I can only imagine with the hold. Like others have said, it could go either way. Here's hoping for something one way or the other soon! I imagine you've been checking your state's board's website?

I took mine today and the pop up said the same thing as yours. My results are on hold but, nothing unusual happened during my examination. So I don't know what's going on. Have you found out yet?

It's 50/50 chance no one really knows the answer. A friend of mines results were on hold as well & then days later she failed. Just keep your fingers crossed. Goodluck!

Here is an update...still on hold. Going crazy. Can't stop thinking about it.

what is your verdict? I'm taking mine soon

i took Buszta and I really liked her but I'm finding conflicting info from the handouts to the questions she gave in class. I want to think I made a good decision taking that class but I'm scared. Will this be enough?

im doing Saunders cd questions on the setting that gives 4435 questions. Each day I do them I do a different set. One day I did from question 4000 - 4100, next time I did 3500-3600. A lot of the questions asked were not covered in Buszta. I still try to answer the questions using the techniques learned and read all the rationales and strategies. This is what is leaving me feel like I don't know enough.

Any suggestions or piece of mind that I'm on the right track?

Everyone swears that Buszta is the best! My results came back and I did not pass :-( I think my anxiety got to me when the power went out. I was clearly doing somewhat well if I didn't fail at 75. I contacted Buszta and am going to another class coming up and then gonna get tutored by them after. Re-taking the exam sometime in September. Saunders seems a little harder than what we need to know. But it is a good source. I would also recommend the nclex mastery app. Worth the money. Taking the week off and then studying again next week. Can't wait- not. Any suggestions guys? I'm still kind of numb about my results.

I had the NCLEX mastery app on my iPad and iPhone and did the trial version. I love that app !!

So sorry that happened to u at the test. That really would have done me in as well.

Hopefully you're not getting the "hold" popup any longer. While I'm hoping you got the good popup, I'm also at least hoping you got some response that indicates whether you passed or not. Knowing that is a whole lot better than being in limbo about the results.

etorch, sorry that happened to you.

I think that the best thing you can do is the tutoring, the tutors are experienced and can help you figure out where you went wrong.

Thank you. Round 2 will be my final round as I become a RN

Dont worry ETorch89 everything will be fine. I am in your shoes before. I passed my NCLEX in my second attempt. Let me know your update in September. I will pray for you.

Sorry you didn't pass. Hang in there. You'll get it next time. I too took Buszta's review class (twice)and did not pass 2x. I had 265 both times. I'll be taking it for a third time coming up. Hopefully 3rd time is a charm :)

Thanks for all the support everyone! This will be my third time taking the Buszta class. I don't mind taking it, I think it helps. I will be passing the NCLEX on the 2nd try. No if's, and's, or but's!
