How to pass the NCLEX


Tip # 1 – Have a study plan

Time sure appears to fly at times and before you know it .... the NCLEX will be fast approaching. It is therefore imperative that you have a study plan and that you work your plan, daily.

As part of your plan, commit to studying at least 3 hours every day. While this may sound a bit too disciplined, realize that consistent preparation is key to passing the NCLEX. Besides, the iSuperLearn system makes this daily 3 hours time commitment a breeze since the program turns your downtime and sleep time into study time.

I highly recommend that you start with a subject area in which you know that you can use some assistance. By first building in your weakest area, you will develop your overall memory, boost your self-confidence and significantly increase your overall performance at the NCLEX.

Once you decide on your first subject area, pick the corresponding iSuperLearn audio and listen to that audio repeatedly during the day. The iSuperLearn audios are an ideal way to turn your down time into study time. While you are commuting, shopping, exercising, etc you can be enhancing your memory and understanding of the study material by simply selecting an audio on your smartphone or any other digital playback device, plugging in ear buds, press play and going about your activities. You can 'actively' listen to the information which is deliberately paced in bite-sized pieces at a specific interval to allow efficient absorption. By audibly or silently repeating the material during the intervals, you will be using a vocalizing technique proven to accelerate learning and enhance your memory. You can also 'passively' listen to the audio material while it plays in the background and you are concentrating on your other activity. Nevertheless, your (subconscious) mind is being exposed to the information and is aware of your intentions to be familiar with the material. Either way (actively or passively listening) you are getting the repetitions needed for mastery of the information.

Stay focused and work your study plan. The time spent now using the iSuperLearn system will pay huge dividends and ensure your outstanding success on the NCLEX.



Tip # 2 – Build your memory pegs

Once you have listened to an iSuperLearn audio for several repetitions, it is time to further accelerate and enhance those memory pegs. Do this by taking the corresponding FITB {Fill-In-The-Blank} quiz. These FITBs quizzes are designed to build visual and kinesthetic memory pegs on the auditory inputs you have been receiving. By involving several different modes in the learning process, you are rapidly building and reinforcing several memory pegs towards attaining full mastery of the information.

Take the same FITB quiz several times. The questions are randomly selected from a large pool and presented to challenge your memory. You will note that each time you go through the process of taking the same FITB quiz, you are getting better and better. And faster. Make it a game. Have fun.

Listen to the audio => take the FITB quiz. Repeat this sequence over and over. When you attain 3 consecutive scores that are greater than 85%, it is now time to take the MCQs {Multiple Choice Questions} corresponding to the same audio.

The MCQs are designed to test your understanding and mastery mastery of the information and to prepare you for the Board environment. Take this same MCQ quiz repeatedly. The questions are randomized and the choices for each question are also randomly presented. Again, this is to challenge and reinforce your memory. When you can consistently score over 85% on the MCQs quiz, you are ready to move on to another subject.

Chose another iSuperLearn audio and repeat the process - listen to the audio => FITB = ... >85% => MCQ = ... >85%.

We have proven conclusively that once you can consistently score at least 85% on the iSuperLearn quizzes, you will pass the NCLEX with flying colours.

Keep focused and continue to work your study plan. Listen to the iSuperLearn audios and take the exams. Invest the time now to heap the benefits at the NCLEX.



Tip # 3 – Sleep Learning

Many students enjoy listening to the super learning audios and chart their progress using the quizzes on the e-learning platform. For some, that is all they do and they do pass the NCLEX with ease.

Nevertheless, the super learning audios can be used to even further accelerate the mastery of the information with the proven methodology of sleep learning. In effect, you can turn your 'sleep' time into 'study' time.

If you have been overlooking this additional super learning technique, I urge you to explore just how quickly you can absorb information, build your recall and master complexities while sleeping. Your mind will truly amaze you.

Prove it to yourself. Take a FITB quiz and note your score.

Chose the corresponding EL audio, make sure you “loop” only that selection on your playback device.

Adjust the volume so that it is just audible with your device on a nightside table or next to your pillow. The volume should be very low so that your sleep is not disturbed.

Press play and listen to the material. Most likely you will start off by actively listening and then you will drift off to sleep naturally while the audio continues to repeat itself over and over.

When you awake, you will become aware of the audio playing quietly. Turn it off and go about your regular routine.

Soon after, take the same FITB quiz and note the improved score.

You have just proven to yourself that you can indeed turn your sleep time into efficient study tme.

Some students quickly master this amazing technique and never agin have to burn the midnight oil reading their notes over and over to commit to memory. Instead they plug & play and go to sleep.

Stay focused. Work your study plan. Sleep well ... keep learning.



Tip # 4 – Proven Exam Strategies

For a terrific resource on proven strategies to use when taking the NCLEX, please visit this blog at BrilliantNurse. It is quite extensive and definitely worth a detailed review.

Stay focused. Continue to work your study plan and use the iSuperLearn exams to develop your ability to use the process of elimination as an effective exam strategy.




Tip # 5 – Effective Guessing

How to guess your way to success on the NCLEX.

This is an easy strategy because you will have already decided before the NCLEX how you are going to guess. Statistically, a totally random guess offers you the best outcome. And the best way to make your guess free from false assumptions and be totally random is to decide before hand to select the first choice available, consistently. The test makers have done their best to randomize the choice sequence. There is nothing further you can gain by further randomizing your guess. Simply go with the FIRST choice. Or if you wish, the SECOND choice. Or the THIRD. Or the FOURTH. Simply decide before hand and stay with the same choice.

You deploy this strategy only AFTER you have done your best at elimination.

Take a deep breath and relax knowing that you have done your very best. Clear your mind and move on to the new question.

Stay focused. Continue to work your study plan. Decide how you are going to guess and be ready to effectively deploy this strategy as your last resort.

Tip # 6 – Optimize your brain functions

You have been studying for years to arrive where you are now preparing for the NCLEX. You have invested considerable time and money to reach this far.

Don't mess up by walking into the NCLEX with your brain neurons misfiring due to the lack of sleep.

As little as one hour lack of sleep measurably impairs cognitive activity. A good night's rest is essential for you to ace the NCLEX. Don't short change yourself. If you have not been already doing so, start today getting 6 – 8 hours of sleep each and every night. There is no need to pull all-night cramming sessions, especially when you could be sleep learning with the iSuperLearn EL audios.

Stay focused. Continue to work your study plan. Be wise. Get enough sleep.



Tip # 7 – Fuel your brain

Fuel your brain for success at the NCLEX

As a Nurse you know the importance that diet plays in health and well being. Practice what you will be preaching!

On the day of the NCLEX be sure to eat a good, satisfying breakfast with enough protein and complex carbohydrates to provide sustained fuel during the NCLEX. Take fresh fruit of choice with you and consume at the start of your session. Glucose is the preferred fuel for the brain.

If you have been accustomed to having a cup of coffee with breakfast by all means continue and do not skip.

If you are looking for a natural kick consider consuming some vitamin B complex.

Stay focused. Listen to your audios and continue to take the practice exams. Sleep well. Fuel your body and brain properly.




Tip # 8 – The Night Before The NCLEX

'Twas the night before the NCLEX when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
As a super learning user you are fast asleep
Confident in the success you are soon to reap.

Be sure to go to bed early tonight to get a great night's sleep. You want all of those brain neurons to be firing optimally.

Get up early tomorrow and enjoy a quick workout to get your metabolism in high gear.

Eat a wonderful breakfast to fuel your brain for the task ahead.

Plan to arrive early at the examination center. Give yourself ample time for traffic and any other delays which can occur. On the way play your favourite tunes loudly and sing along. Get the endorphins rushing. Who cares who is watching. You are on your way to rock the NCLEX!

Believe in yourself! All of your hours of hard work and the investments in yourself are about to pay off.

Best wishes for your outstanding success at the NCLEX!
