Bit Of Unsolicited Advice...Nclex Exam

Here is an email I sent to one of my friends and I thought that it
might also be helpful to others...

A little bit of unsolicited advice... Kaplan test taking strategies
are very effective! you don't even necessarily need to enroll in their
expensive review classes (unless you have the money... then go for
it!), just utilize their techniques in answering each question (Im
sure you can find books from friends who have taken the exam already
or you could always xerox :P) The more you answer questions using
their strategies, the easier the exams seem to be, well maybe not
easier, but you will have a better chance of getting your answers
right (even when you're not really sure when you select your answer)

And another thing... take your time in answering or rather and more
importantly when reading the questions... I've found that half (maybe
even more) the battle is understanding what the question is really
asking you... and trying to look for those very subtle cues that you
don't really see until the second or even third time you read the

You know what i did for the actual exam... I actually spent about two
minutes to answer each question (even though rule of thumb is
supposedly that you should give yourself about 1 minute for each
question) but the way i see it... you're not actually looking to
answer all 265 questions anyway, so the 5 hours they give you is
really more time than you could actually consume when your goal is to
let the exam shut down on you on the 75th-100th question (hopefully
with a positive result!) :P

It seemed to work for me... My exam shut down on my 75th question!

Finally, BE CONFIDENT in the fact that you already know the content of
the exam! when I say that, i dont mean that you will be familiar with
all the questions they throw at you, on the contrary, they will seem
to come from out of nowhere and since there is no possible way for you
to read up on all the nursing books out there... well you get the
picture… but you will have some idea about it and that is really all
you need to make an intelligent guess. Confidence really helps a lot
to keep your composure and gets you on a steady pace (without worrying
about how well you are doing) while you are still in the middle of
taking the test.

So all you really need to improve on is your testmanship! I wasted my
Kaplan review by not reading up or listening to their extensive study
materials the first two months of their program. But I made up for it
by not missing any of the practice tests they gave us. And aside from
that I tried to answer as many questions as I could (always using
Kaplan strategies) until it became second nature to me that I would do
it without even trying. (And I was surprised at how much better I was
doing in the practice tests)

Parting shot: In the end it really just boils down to what you are
comfortable with... Im just sharing what worked for me but it is up to
you... on whether or not you use it... or even better... if you can
improve on it! :)

Best of luck! I look forward to hearing from you and all your success
be it in exams or in finding work abroad…

Take Care! :)
