Looking for the BEST Nursing Review Center…

January 24th, 2009 by Dianne Peña

Saan ka magrereview?

Nakapagpareserve ka na ba?

Yaan ang pinakasikat na tanong ngayon ng bawat graduating student na nakakausap ko… Masaya dahil gragraduate na… malungkot dahil ang sagot ko sa kanila ay…



Right now, I am confused as to where will I review for the nursing licensure exam. There are a lot of review centers out there and I can’t seem to find where is the best for me. I even tried to search at the web and read forums about the review centers. As far as the questioning and answering… The very common answers are:

1. SRG (Sultan Review Group) – most of our reviewers for our NCM 105 came from there.
2. Pentagon
3. Gapuz

I am undecided, I told myself that I will decide after I passed our Audit (NCM 105) because one of my philosophy in life is “Just cross the bridge when you get there…” but my mom said I better make for reservation now before it run out of slots for “one of the best” nursing review center. She suggested that I should review at GAPUZ because she already tried their services when she reviewed for the nursing licensure exam. I say, “Ma, that was a long time ago, you were few back then…”. Nevertheless, I am weighing between GAPUZ and PENTAGON…

I need help….

I need to decide now before I can’t decide anymore because there is no choice…

Any great suggestions???

It will be very welcomed…

    @Joan- Hi, you could visit their websites or you could call their office because as far as I know, there are packages that you can choose for your review scheme…

    Try a new and better approach. Viewpointe Review Center sa Olongapo or Subic Freeport area. Interventional ang approach hindi katulad diyan sa Manila or Baguio na one size fits all. Bahala kang matuto mag-isa kahit naiiwan ka na dahil ang bibilis mag salita ng mga lecturers. Walang kabulastugan na mga songs and dances at ka-etsehan ng mga lecturers.
    Interventional sila dahil assess muna nila learning style and personality. Tapos about 4 times during the course, they assess your individual progress 1:1 and intervene for you para ma-improve ang progress mo. http://www.viewpointeacademics.com. Class size is limited to 90 or less to ensure effectiveness ng program nila.

  10. Edwin Says:

    They are now open for registration for the next review season. Dahil maliit lang ang class size, madaling mapuno. 09491374442/0475110260

    hello! Does any of these review centers have online review for Nclex? thank you.

    ayun, i am from a not-so famous review center…
    I AM ENCOURAGING PO NA SA MGA 1ST TIME NLE TAKER AND RETAKERS na to inquire in this review center:
    i am giving an option pra sa mga nguguluhan, especially na baka magpalit ng set of Board of Nursing this year.. Though you have heard na may mga nagsasabi na “kilala nila yung mga papalit na BON”, TRG is not afraid kahit magpalit pa ng libo-libong BON kasi alam nila na “TAMA ANG PAGTUTURO NILA SA REVIEWEE AT PUSO ANG GAMIT NILA HINDI PERA”
    this is maybe the first time you heard the review center pero eto ang general info and key points about TRG:
    1. PRINCIPLE ng TRG: “pag-aralan muna ang COMMON BOARD TOPICS bago ang mga UNCOMMON BOARD TOPICS”.
    2. Board and Pen lang ang gamit and mga NATIONAL REVIEWERS po ang nagtuturo
    3. Six (6) review phases po siya
    4. Two (2) branches lang po ang hinahandle ng TRG kaya alagang alaga ang mga reviewee
    5. Med-Surg review in tagalog explanation, mga palantadaan na well absorbed..
    6. With prioritization ang mga NLE subjects wherein the reviewers will give emphasis kung ano ang dapat tandaan, hindi sila basta basta salpak nang salpak sa utak ng estudyante (in other review centers, super holistic ng review at ang msama ay madalas wlang lumalabas)
    7. LONG TERM memory for reviewees dahil sa magandang priorities ng subjects
    8. During review phase, 90% LECTURE and 10% TAWA…What do i mean? ibig sabihin nito is that HINDI GUMAGAMIT NG PAMATAY-ORAS ang REVIEWER (tulad ng pagpapatawa ng sobra at PAGSAYAW-SAYAW) para lng ma-consume ung time..PRINSIPYO NG TRG: may nag-aaral ba ng tawa nang tawa?.. after board exams, 100% ang tawa mo kasi confident ka sa mga sagot mo sa NLE dahil sa review
    9. na-hiHIT ang actual board questions, especially MS…kung masaya na po ang ibang RC na maka-apat na TANONG na lumabas from their review, sa TRG hanggang tenga ngiti mo kasi maraming common board topics ang tinatamaan.

    for more details, please feel free to visit this site for any inquiries:

    —to guide you na makahanap ng tamang review center, WAG MONG ITANONG KUNG “MAGANDA BA DYAN SA REVIEW CENTER”
    sa TRG kasi, ang sasabihin lang namin is “MARAMING LUMABAS”
    [salamat mga tropa]

    Wala naman yan s review center eh :)) Baka sinasabi nyo lng n mganda ung RevCenter nyo coz pumasa kayo dun? At bka sinasai nyo n panget ung RevCenter nyo ksi ndi naman kayo pumasa? Ako nga, honestly Im on my 2nd take but failed.. My first RevCenter is RUN @Sta. Mesa and secondly GAPUZ. Ngkaroon may ng leakage in the past na galing DAW s GAPUZ pero npatunayan ko n walang leakage tlga dun.. Im not telling to you this guys pra mprotect ko lang ung GAPUZ. Hindi naman ksi tlga totoo n may leakage. For in instance: Sinabi nila smin na puro COPAR s NP2 on JUNE-JULY 2012 pero anooooooooooooooo????????? WALA NGA AKONG NKITANG SALITANG COPAR s NP2 eh.. 🙂 Sabi pa nila basahin ung previously Board Exam Questions since 2008 pero anooooooooooooooooo???? 1 lng ung umulit n tanong.. ndi pa copy paste.. Im just sharing! 🙂 Now, ndi ako susuko hanggang ndi ako nkakapasa! 3rd time ko n s Dec. 2012 pero wala namang kaso un db? Ndi naman tatanungin ng patient sayo pg ng rerender k ng care s knila if anu rating mo s NLE? I believe in GOD’s Time & His Will.

    Hello, just finished reading ur thoughts about sa mga review center, im on searching din kase,and still confusing kung san ba tlga yung the best na review center, bet ko ung lecture type, best test taking and yung hindi crowded mas feel ko ung few students lng in a room mas absorbed kse un para sakin. Hay anhirap mg hanap, first tme ko lng mg review center retaker din ako and self review lng not really effective kya ngaun need ko ng the best review center :'(

    Thank you and Godbless

  15. Dianne Peña Says:

    @anjhelyka alorro, I think the best nursing review center is your discipline and dedication with yourself and your reviewing strategy. Its not with who has the most passing rate etc. It always depends on you and your convenience. They are all the same as to what they teach I tell you.

  16. cassandra Says:

    wala talaga yan sa review center ok….KUNG TALAGANG PAPASA KA??? PAPASA KA !!!!!! kelangan lang ng ABILIDAD sa pag sagot ng tanong….

    I’d been suggested your blog via my own step-brother. I’m just no more specific if this publish will be published by means of the pup because who else realize these kinds of certain in relation to my own problem. You’re remarkable! Thanks a lot!

    I read this piece of writing fully on the topic of the comparison of

    Every weekend i used to go to see this site, because i want enjoyment, since this this web page conations truly
    nice funny information too.

    SHARE LANG. 🙂 I suggest you try Tatualla Review Group (TRG) if youre living anywhere near sa edsa taft, pasay or taguig.

    THE BEST SA MEDICAL SURGICAL NURSING and MATERNAL AND CHILD.. yan kasi kadalasan ung mga concept na medyo mahirap ipasok sa isip haha (ganun sakin eh) so I think TRG really made these concepts very easy to grasp kasi medyo chill nalang nung bnabasa ko yung mga tanong sa mismong board exam. Di ako nagmamayabang.. ganun lang talaga kagaling ung reviewer na yun dahil if it werent for them, nganga ako sa board exam (Makikilala mo sya kung dun ka mag rereview haha ang pambato ng TRG!). Di kasi ako pala aral nung college kaya sila ang nagbago nun at nagbgay daan para pumasa ako despite being one tamad student nuon. ang gusto ko pa dun marami laughtrip. Syempre ngarag ka na sa board exam.. believe me you dont need extra pressure sa paghahanda sa board dhil habang palapit ng palapit ung mismong araw na pinakahihintay mo, patindi din ung nerbyos. Kaya ganun it helped na dun sobrang approachable sila. Di ka mahihiya magtanong. Di ka rn mabubored.

    Atsaka Di ka lugi sa ibabayad mo dun lalo na at compare mo man sa iba, mas mababa ung fee for the review class, you can even join their advance review classes.. o diba sobrang sulit? Parang dalawang beses ka na nagreview kung sasali ka sa advance review. I can definitely say na puso ang matimbang dun at mga estudyante hindi pera.

    Also, grabe ung support na natanggap namen dun.. para na talaga kaming isang malaking pamilya kaya hayun, naging mas magaan ung transition from review to the board exam itself.. kasi feeling ko talaga solid ung support nila samen at pag medyo naoverwhelm ka na sa nerbyos.. ibuboost ka nila. Sila ang iyong biggest fan club pramis. Haha

    I can definitely say na pag sa TRG ka nagreview.. di ka magsisisi. I can attest to that at op kors ang lisensya na nakamtan ko 🙂 GO TEAM TRG!
