  1. Before you look at the rationale, review the correct answer

    • Do you see what you did wrong?
    • Did you misread or misinterpret the question?
    • Did you miss a keyword?
    • Did you just not understand the topic?
    • Did you fall into a test-taking trap?
  2. Next, review the rationale

    • Make sure you understand why the right answer is right and why the wrong answers are wrong
    • Make note of the error you made or the misunderstanding you had
    • Make note of the Nursing Category
    • Make note of the topic and what body system is involved
    • Repeat with each question
  3. Review your overall results after taking at least 200 NPQ

    • Do you see any patterns?
    • Did you overthink on a lot of the questions?
    • Did you fall into the same test-taking trap repeatedly?
    • Are you missing key words in the questions?
  4. We recommend aiming for a score between 55-60% in each Category, so which Categories are you struggling with?

    • Is there a body system you’re consistently missing?
    • Do you seem to struggle with SATA or Prioritization questions?
    • Is your struggle specifically with Management of Care questions?

  1. Read the rationale to solidify your knowledge

    • Make sure you got it right for the right reasons and not because you guessed
    • Once you understand what happened, MOVE ON. Don’t spend too much time on the questions you answered correctly.
  2. Focus on identified areas of weakness (categories scored less than 55-60%)

    • Review pertaining material related to the questions you missed
    • Take 25-50 NPQ in each of your 3-4 lowest Nursing Categories to improve your results in those categories
