The NCLEX is an exam used to assess your ability to perform safely in an entry-level nurse position. The test is unique from prior tests you may experience in school, focusing on analysis and application of what you learned. It is important to keep your critical-thinking skills in shape to optimize success in the exam. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools use a variety of methods to provide free NCLEX test practice online. You can use these singularly or together to get additional practice with the concepts you will be tested on in the exam. The questions you will see through Learning Tools mimic the format of the test, such as the alternate question types. These incorporate multiple nursing concepts into a single question, requiring multi-level thinking.
Flashcards are one tool you can access for free. Each card provides a question with multiple-choices, though it may use other formats, like fill in the blank, multi-response, charts, or hot spots. You can use these questions to practice particular concepts, or to randomly review when you have some free time. They are flexible, allowing you to use them the way that most suits your schedule and individual study needs. Some people prefer to team up with friends or study partners to turn the flashcards into a game, though others incorporate them into their other study materials.
With free flashcards online, you get several benefits. You can use the flashcards from any device that has Internet access, which means you can go through them right before your exam. You don't have to worry about the time, as you can take all the time you need to work with them. In addition, there is a flashcards maker that lets you create your own questions. These can be great for focused NCLEX practice.
Learning Tools are excellent when paired together. You might use Question of the Day to pop a quiz on your mind, testing your reflexes in the different concepts. The practice tests are a great way to see what areas you already know well, and identify areas that you need to study further. The flashcards can provide that extra focus, offering a multitude of questions and situations for some additional practice. Each question in the flashcards follows the same idea of the test, without being timed, releasing any potential pressure from the study session. All of these study options are completely free to use.
When it comes to taking the NCLEX, you need to prepare properly. Efficient and effective study is vital to being prepared. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools provide you with a way to study as much as you need to in ways that suit your individual study needs. The study resources offered through Learning Tools can work well alongside homework, or other study materials from your courses. In addition, they can be useful tools to get valuable practice time in the most important concepts of nursing.
