    This is great for students

    I am a student and I love this book. I read it before I read the actual chapters that I must study for in my original book. It basically breaks it all down. Also I read it after and I read it to review for quizzes and test, it just helps with everything. It seems to be a good book for the NCLEX, because you can go through everything you learned in one big book with quizzes at the end and on the CD so that you really get it in your head. It is a great book, seriously, and well organized! I am going to now buy the Pharmacology book for the NCLEX!
