The NAPLEX just crushed my will to live. I know that people say afterward that they feel like they failed, but then they end up passing. There will be no passing for this fellow. I got CRUSHED by this exam.

All the topics I felt strong on - hardly or not tested
Random crap - lots of it
Not so random crap on subjects I'm weak on - lots of it
The ONE type of math problem I struggle with - 4-5 questions with it

I LITERALLY made anywhere from 30-50 100% guesses. I would say after that, probably another 30-50 educated guesses.

The signs are there that I failed as well, as the questions got easier towards the end of the exam. I only had probably 10 k type questions through the whole thing, which is probably another sign I failed. I'll get my results in 2 days and will post here, but it will be a MIRACLE if I passed. A true miracle.

I mostly just used the Kaplan book, and some of the APhA one. I'll find out tomorrow if I passed, but I'm not counting on it.

You probably did well. What books did you use to study and how long did you study?

By the way I hear statistics is on the NAPLEX. Did you encounter any type of statistics questions? What type are there?
I had to calculate # needed to treat, define a p value, explain a meta analysis and also what a double blind crossover study is.

I am sure you will pass. This was my impression after my NAPLEX and I passed.:thumbup:

I had quite a few problems that were w/w, which I don't usually like. Stuff like mixing triamcinolone in cold cream and that sort of thing, but like I said, all weight weight stuff.

I felt the same way.... I guessed on over half. I scored a 115 on mine... I must have had all of the questions I guessed on thrown out or something!
