    Best of all the reviews and worth twice the money!

    I've read them all because I want to pass the first time. Cracking is the best because it involves the reader in the exercises. Very good publication.

    False Advertising & Poor Quality

    I purchased the 7th edition and was very upset when I received it. The book was of very poor quality, including cheap pages that tear easily. In addition, the advertisement stated that there were eight computer adaptive tests included when in fact they are simple linear tests. If you want a high quality book, please do not purchase this one because you will be disappointed.

    Only one step away from becoming an RN

    This book was the best investment I ever made. This book gets the results you want, Registered Nurse! Yes, I did notice some spelling errors and other minor mistakes. This book was of great help to me and could be to you.

    incredible book

    I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to ace the test - I did very well after following the princeton review's amazing strategies. The errors must have been fixed, not sure what these other reviews are talking about.

    Wrought with Errors

    I was throughly disappointed with the poor quality of this book. Spelling errors, question/answer mismatches, confusing information. I would not recommend this to anyone.
