If you got the question wrong...❌
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?
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
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?
We recommend aiming for a score between 55-60% in each Category, so which Categories are you struggling with?
If you got the question right...✔
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.
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
