whoa, thats a lot.. more than what i was thinking.. how many questions are you doing per day?

Hi, I will be taking my boards in August as well, I'm waiting on my Att number but should get it soon. I'm doing Hurst online and reading Reviews and Rationales for Nclex. Do you think that is enough?? I do not want to stress myself out. I'm afraid I waited to long to test, I graduated in May with my A.D.N. :banghead:

I dont think you did a "bad" thing by waiting few months to take the NCLEX,I think it is good to take some time off relax,then take a review and study at home...you cant possibly remeber everything that you learned for the past two years in school...that is the reason why the reviews were created.

good for you, i like your motivation and all your hard work and effort will pay off. Im sure you will pass. :)

Just pray for me too, as this will be my second time taking it.

I took NCLEX one month after graduation, and about a week or so after taking Kaplan, which I hated. But I passed NCLEX. I did the q-bank questions everyday for the week or so before the test and did probably 200 questions a day, by the end did 88% of all the available questions, I don't think they were too similiar to the ones on NCLEX, but I passed with 89 questions and guess it worked enough. Goodluck to all!

is that all you did? i mean did you use other books such as saunders for content? .. or only kaplan is what worked for you? and how many questions did you do per day?

I took the hurst review in january, then again after i graduated my ADN school in May. I am planning on scheduling the next available NCLEX, after i get my ATT.

My plan:

review the HURST seminar notes booklet

Do the end of chapter questions,

Watch the pediatric lecture and do the seminar notes section (on the DVD)

take the mock nclex, (maybe take it twice)

Don't freak out y'all NCLEX isn't so big and bad as they make it out to be.

All of my classmates have been finishing with 75 questions and all of them reported that NCLEX was easier than any of the tests we took in our community college program.

Just did Kaplan, and did a little Saunders but those questions were too easy to do all the time, I wanted to work on stuff that I was not strong in. I would def suggest practicing infection control, priority questions, and drugs...

GOODLUCK!

I just got my ATT yesterday, so its ON like Donkey Kong...

I'll be in a cave for the next month doing NCLEX 4000 questions, questions from the book "Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment" by LaCharity, Kumagai, and Bartz, and another random Mosby NCLEX book. I passed all my HESIs by doing questions from the NCLEX 3500, so I figure I'll stick with the same formula.

Yep I give credit to 3500 NCLEX CD and Lacharity book.

Well what is your plan to be succesful the second time around?

the first time all i used was saunders, this time im doing kaplan, some more of saunders, and am debating on purchasing ncsbn, dont know yet.. but want to do 100- 150 questions per day, and read all rationals, even if i got the answer right.. thats my plan :)

Hi, everybody:

I graduated in June, still waiting for my ATT - the school mailed in the applications 2 weeks ago. How long does it take in SoCal to get the letter? I heard that BRN is changing the format 8/15 and I am totally scared. So far I'm doing the ATIs and score from 72 to 98 but the questions are content and kind of easy. I'm planning on taking Kaplan and also have Saunders, Springhouse, the 3300 bullets, and a bunch of CDs with questions. I'm really insecure about pharm - all friends that took the exam said a lot of pharm.

Good luck to all!
