The NCLEX is the main test in the licensing process. It is set up to be similar to an entrance exam for a university. That is why so many schools that do not have an accredited college make the exam a requirement for students who want to attend a university.
You should plan to take at least three practice exams. Take them before the actual exam, but at least once before you go to practice testing. You should spend at least a couple of hours doing this before you even think about taking the exam.
After you take the practice exams, then take the NCLEX exam. To pass, you will need to answer all questions correctly. There are no secret answers or any way to cheat on this exam. There is no excuse not to be prepared.
If you are taking the exam for the first time, get a high school diploma, GED or equivalent, or a high school diploma from a college or trade school. Make sure to bring proof of this when you check in for the exam.
You may be asked to take the NCLEX written test. This is another test that you will be given a lot of practice on. When I took mine, I found it easier than the test I took when I took my GED.
Bring all your practice test prep materials with you to the test. This means flash cards, index cards, and the study guide I wrote. The NCLEX exam may seem simple, but it does involve reading, writing, and analytical thinking.
It is important to get your study guide right away. That way you will be able to focus on the questions you are given instead of focusing on studying. You will also find that it helps you organize your thinking process.
If you have read other NCLEX study guides before, it is not a good idea to try to study like them. Some of them have topics that you don’t need or think you need for this exam. In order to prepare for the NCLEX, you should take the material found in other study guides and put it into action.
During the exam, write down everything you know, because you never know what the questions will ask. If you find out later that you need it, you can use it to answer your questions.
The best preparation you can do for the NCLEX is to listen to someone else give the exam. You can buy books or listen to the audio versions of these tests online. This gives you a better feel for what it is going to be like.
