Hey on NCLEX did all of your questions have a bold word in them? For example What is most important or Who you you see first. The word most & first were bold? I'm wondering because I noticed some questions had bold words. Were those considered to be higher level than the ones who didn't
Cream and sugar LPN
According to my Kaplan Review book for NCLEX any words in bold or italic are hints. They are geared at helping the test taker realize the strategy to best answer the question.
Hope this helps... What did you use for a study guide?
hi can you tell which questions are considered higher level vs lower level (confused)..who you see 'first' are higher level?
OMG I honestly used too much I think. I asked my professor & she stated that every question needed to have a bold word in it for me to pass because those are considered higher level. I told her I guess I missed that memo because I've never heard that
Maybe someone on here can help with this- I've never taken the exam! But from the hundreds of posts I've read on AN I got the strong impression you don't need a certain "amount" of higher level questions to pass. You just need to stay within passing criteria. Did you get your breakdown yet on how you did in all the areas? Maybe that will help. regardless keep your chin-up! This too shall pass..
How did it go today??? You retested today too right?
I noticed a lot of mine had BOLD words.
Like: initial, priority, first, most important, etc.... but I have never heard that those indicate the level of the question??
I do know that higher level questions are SATA, priority, delegation and teaching.
Did you try the PVT yet???
No I haven't got my breakdown yet. Thanks for the encouragement
Lillian I tested Friday & failed but I also noticed a lot of bold words on my nclex as well
I honestly don't remember if I had bold words or not..............I wasn't really concerned with that though because I just wanted to answer the questions and get out of there LOL. Don't get caught up with all the little things that you lose focus of the big picture..........IJS.
Dang! I'm sorry :-(
Don't give up though!!!
You can do it:-)))
Lots of love your way.
Thanks so much
