The book was instrumental in my success in passing my boards. The organization of the content, the memory aids were a nice tool that came into play during testing. I highly recommend this book!

I would advice all nursing students who are about to take the NCLEX to purchase this book. It is very very helpful, and because of this book I passed my exam. I highly recommend it.........

You should buy this book from day one of nursing school. This book breaks everything down in nursing. The best book I have found and I own over 50 nursing books! Love it, love it, love it.........

This is one of the best NCLEX book and software out there! The CD simulated the NCLEX 99% at the time, with almost 6000 question and over 20 categories(cardiac, peds, etc)made a great tool for my success. I liked the study mode, 25 question at the time with rationals and strageties after each answer (it will remember which question you took each time). The quiz and nclex mode test were great too. Bottom line we all need to get familiar with computerized NCLEX test by doing at least 75 question each day (over 2000 question in a month) your chances of success are pretty good.

I am a Block II Nursing student and so far am finding this a very good supplement to my required textbooks. I will probably end up using this more than my other books to study for tests and boards. This book is very organized, provides prioritization of assessments and interventions, has 1000's of NCLEX questions, and fits in very nicely to the curriculum at school. Highly recommended for Nursing students.

Very good overall review book for the NCLEX
Graduate-RN More than 1 year ago
This book is great! I would recommend this book for nursing students and graduate nurses. The CD that came with it was very useful and excellent for practicing on answering questions. The book was a great study guide that covered everything you need to know and more to pass the NCLEX-RN. I used this book and CD with a test-taking strategy book and passed the NCLEX-RN for the first-time.
