I’m scheduled to take the NCLEX this coming Monday. I’ve been using UWorld to study and teetering between the 58th and 63rd percentiles with 400 questions left in the Qbank. I did the first RN assessment and got a borderline chance of passing and just recently did the second RN assessment and finished in the 52nd percentile with a high chance of passing. I’m freaking out and considering changing my test date. Does anybody have similar UWorld experience and passed the NCLEX? Or would it be wise to push my test date back? 

 

Help!

Hi! So I only had the 30 day question bank. I answered all the questions and my percentages varied from low 50s to mid 70s. I just took my test Tuesday and passed. I wouldn’t let your RN assessment percentages dissuade you or discourage you. If you feel comfortable and think you understand the questions/ rationales you should keep your original test date. From my experience, all my friends who pushed their test dates back felt like it just made them more anxious and didn’t really help but that’s completely up to you.

Do you think UWorld is a good place to review for NCLEX? I am using ati because my school requires it but thinking on getting u world. I am really anxious I feel like I am the only one from school that is not going to pass. 

I took the ATi predictor without studying the first tine and got a 89% chance of passing. However I am really nervous!

Hi Grace, I highly recommend Uworld! I used ATI while in school as well but never really liked it personally. Uworld really helps you learn how to answer questions effectively in a way that I think is far superior to ATI.

Hi there,

although uworld seems to be the best thus far, I’ve been trying Nursing education Qbank and the questions are a bit challenging.  The rationales are very informative. Has anyone heard of it ?? I found it while searching through the website, it’s nursingeducation.com check it out!!!

Hello. I would really say not to push your test date back, all my friends that scheduled theirs late get more anxious by the day. My experience with Uworld- I only bought the 30 day package with no assessment. I did around 1200 questions in a week (I know, I procrastinate) and my scores were 49-68%. I felt unprepared but forced myself to keep my test date. My test shut off at 75 questions and I found out the next day that I passed. Ton of SATA but I felt ok about them bc of how many I did with Uworld. You will never feel ‘ready’ you just have to believe in yourself!

Good luck tomorrow!

Sitting at 60% average on UWorld in the 76% percentile on Q-Bank. Scored mid-70%s in the mid 90% percentiles on the self assessment test. Also used Kaplan through my school, they had CAT testing that mimicked the NCLEX, got it to shut off with a passing score at 75. Feeling confident enough to test this Wednesday.

Hi everyone, good look to those taking the nclex :)

I would like to know what are your thoughts. I’m a nursing student and I graduate May 2020. I purchased Uworld, and starting practicing the questions. Am I being a bit dramatic? Is this too much time to be going over for the nclex?

 

I figured its better than not doing anything. I do it when I’m free with the Uworld app, I sit in bed with the wife and just go over questions. Also using the Saunders to reviews. Thoughts?

I just took the NCLEX on 6/25 and passed! I exclusively used UWORLD to study. With that being said...I think you are using it too soon. You have not learned a lot of the content that is in UWORLD yet and you would benefit much more from it if you were to use it to study for the NCLEX closer to taking it. NCLEX is a national exam. You will not learn everything in nursing school and learning to answer questions..even when you do not know the material...is paramount to passing the NCLEX.

There are plenty of great question apps you could be using in the mean time to study content.
