UWorld VS Kaplan VS ATI

madisonlong17 specializes in RN.

My NCLEX is in 5 days.

So, I bought the 3 adaptive exams from Kaplan and completed one and got the greenlight. Some of the questions threw me for a loop and I got to question 223 before it shut off (my brain is absolutely melted since it is 1 am and I have been studying off and on all day, I literally did 400+ questions today). 

I did ATI in school and hated it. I did a test today to see what it was like after not doing it in awhile and I was shocked to see how different it was from UWorld, and I scored so much higher than I did in school. In school I got usually 60%-72% and I got a whopping 75% LOL.

I have about 400 questions left in the qbank of UWorld and scored borderline on the first assessment, high on the second. In the qbank I usually score around 55%-66%.

I was just wondering, if anyone has used any of these resources, which one helped you better? I love UWorld's rationale but I feel like Kaplan's adaptive exam kind of gave me a feel for what the NCLEX is like? Or if anyone actually feels like ATI helped them at all?

I am just very anxious at this point because of course I have that deep feeling in my gut that no matter how hard I study and practice with questions, I'll fail.

I am also reviewing to take my NCLEX. I've only used UWorld (1 Yr) and Nurseachieve (30 day free trial) 

UWorld is amazing. My Q Bank averages were very similar to yours. Rationales were perfect. 

Nurseachieve has CAT exams as well which I really liked. 

I recommend reading NCLEX Review Made Simple by Paul K. Addae, RN.

Best of luck to you!

BTW I love your username.

Does he have a pdf? Or is it a book on amazon?

Thanks for the advice!
