I would sit and go through each question, read the rationale, and write down what I had missed for questions that would go wrong. Something about that method really works for me, and having the identical screen to practice on as well as take the huge practice tests for hours really got me ready. Hence, what most of the applicabt do is they apply in the state of Illinois where you are just required to present a letter to nursing board that you went to nursing school that was in ebglish medium and also you dont have to worry about extra test along with tofel. If you don't look at rationale nothing will stick and it will be a waste of time. In my second try,after answering 76 questions computer turned off and that's when i knew that i have passed the test.
Hello All, If you were anything like me doing the Kaplan question trainers, you would get done and immediately freak out and research your scores because you felt like you were doing so poorly. Especially the examples of some of Kaplans rationales. The content was much more to the point and the questions made me feel better than Kaplan- I wasn't getting 55% and flipping out. I have no idea how to memorize meds just on their own. And remember the lower number q trainers are easier than the higher number ones. I know people who only did questions with no content review and passed just fine. My take is this- the breadth of information that the test covers is enormous and there is no way you are even going to come close to learning it all.
You know what you know from nursing school. As always, speak to your healthcare professional for answers specific to your condition. I got a 66% on diagnostic, Q1 67% Q2 61% Q3 56% and a 67% on the readiness test. I wanted to share my Kaplan Scores, and my study plan and hope it helps you. Since the impulses cannot reach the brain, a reflex is activated that increases activity of the sympathetic portion of autonomic nervous system. I only used kaplan for my review material, perhaps just answering up to 60% of the qbank. And for the moment you all have been reading for.
Consider the high acuity of a comatose client and the high priority of a client experiencing a myocardial infarction. Change the dressing daily until the sutures are removed 3. I hope I pass in 75 questions, but will be very happy to pass in general. Although I didn't want to jinx myself and felt like I was answering them all wrong and at one point I felt like I forgot everything I learned. A figure-eight method is used to wrap the stump because it prevents restriction of blood flow. You totally learn content doing questions as well, if you're doing it right.
The nurse knows that both needs and priority must be considered. No matter what stage in life I am in, there always seems to be a part where inevitably I compared myself to another. The first time i took the nclex , all i did was kaplan questions, because i was told i dont need to read content. I was personally surprised when my computer shut off at 75, I felt relieved but not confident common feeling. I did LaCharity 50 questions a day starting at mid march. As you see, both my diagnostic and readiness score weren't above 60% and my scores besides Q5 were never really much higher than the low 60's and my Q7 was not above 60% yet I passed.
However, that was not enough for me and after answering almost 264 question and 6 hours staying on 100% stress pressure I did not pass. When you review the rationales for why you got a question wrong, you are reviewing content, but you can't review everything you learned in the past 2-4 years in 2-3 months. I did that until I completed all of the questions. Hi Smitha: Just want to thank you for this website. Good luck for your applicatiob and the test. I tried it before I posted and it works. That was a lot and took my time for 8 months.
I just happened to stumble across them. I am just taking my time on it though. Figure out your weak spots, understand your needs and go from there. Others have had so many of these sorts of questions in school that they can do it in their sleep, but they are weak on content. I never felt 100% for the exam, but I decided after finishing all of the question trainers I would take it. I completely agree with you about how the content is very important. I have to agree that Kaplan may have good questions meaning; ridiculously difficult but they have poor rationales, makes you wanna be that angry fan during a football game, standing and shouting at the ref for his poor calls.
If you had your education outside the states then you have to give extra test too. Can we use alchol to clean several times. Wash the cord with mild soap and water. For me, it was a combo of content and strategy, I did Kaplan and Saunders and I passed, but that isn't going to work for everyone. I am currently doing Qbank questions and my score is gradually going up. Clean the length of the cord with alcohol several times daily.
If money is an issue, I would highly suggest Uworld. Through the school that I graduated from we were required to purchase and attend the Kaplan review. During the exam I felt like I was failing getting all the questions wrong. Which I used the remainder of my time reviewing rationales, studying pharm and looking over notes. Keep the diaper below the cord. The 65% they tell you to get never happened for me except sometimes when doing a 20 question Qbank test. I do not believe it is ever healthy.
Observe dressing for excessive bleeding, keep a large tourniquet on hand to apply around the stump in the event of hemorrhage 2. Also helpful tip, know your suffixes of your drugs. Anyways, I promised pass or fail I would post all my results to make someone else feel a little better about their scores.
