Why are SIMCLEX® attempts limited?

On July 30th, 2019, we released a brand new version of SIMCLEX®: a patent-pending, computer adaptive NCLEX® simulator. It should be used specifically near the end of preparation as a gauge for NCLEX® readiness. To provide the most accurate simulator possible, SIMCLEX® attempts are limited. Because of its adaptive method, SIMCLEX® is always going to keep you at a level of question difficulty that's close to your level. It's a great predictive tool, but not the only way to take practice questions.

That's why we recommend utilizing SIMCLEX® less and Nursing Practice Questions® (NPQ®) more because the NPQ® will ensure that you are getting the widest variety of questions spanning all levels of difficulty, which will help build confidence.
Taking NPQ®'s is also the best way to determine your areas of weakness so you can identify content to review!

How many questions are on the SIMCLEX®?

The SIMCLEX® is computer adaptive and will cut off when it's 95% confident that the user will either Pass or Fail based on the passing standard, just like the NCLEX®. This can happen anywhere between 75 and 265 questions.
