    Great Service

    I am a student and this book was very easy to read. Also when I ordered this book it arrived in great time and was in excellent condition.

    NCLEX questions

    I'm also a BSN student, and I found the chapters easy to read and understand but there wasn't a CD-ROM or a web link with NCLEX questions to help reinforce the material we have read. I wouldn't recommend this book.

    Prepping for the Nclex

    The textbook is easy to read. My only concern is that there are no nclex-rn style questions or CD-ROM to practice at the end of each chapter. My community health class is going to have an nclex style 100 question midterm exam based on the readings from each chapter read in class. I think that the textbook does not prepare me for community nclex style questions.
