    I brought this book because I kept getting under an 800 on the individual topic exams, so I decided to buy the book to raise my score.  I studied since day 1. There wasn't any multiple choice questions at the end of the book only really easy written questions.  I went online to gain online access to the multiple choice: 1. The questions were fair and understandable. 2. It is general Medical Surgical questions not specific such as Endocrines, Cardio & etc 3. The study mode questions are EXACTLY the same as the exam mode
    So basically you don't really know if you are improving or not

    I went to finally take the HESI exam after so much reading and studying.  I did worst then I ever did an any HESI exam before. Please do not waste your money.  Evolve is just another money hungry company that made their way into nursing programs just to get a check because now nursing programs are using these exams as part of your grade.

    I rented this book and I passed HESI my first time!  The online questions helped me.  I also enjoyed the quizzes mid chapter.  Those small quizzes were reinforcement for me.  I would cover the answers and write MY answers to the questions then look at the given answers and write them on my paper in a different color.  It helped me decipher which area I needed to study.  What really helped me on the HESI was this book's first chapter of test taking skills.  You can know the information like the back of your hand, but if you don't know how to READ the question and truly UNDERSTAND what is being asked, then you will most likely get the answer wrong.  I also liked the advice the book gave me regarding how to answer a question that I didn't know the answer to.  The material for me was not as in depth as I expected, which is fine because it was an easy read.  Also, I'm in my last term of nursing school so 1. I should already know this information and use this book as a refresher and 2. I have other resources that I could use in conjunction with this book.   To those who didn't do so well, its definitely a bummer but I don't think its necessarily WHAT you study, its HOW you study. My advice to everyone: truly understand  the patho and processes of the disease, symptom, etc.  It makes answering questions easier because you are able  to use your knowledge to select the correct answer while doing practice questions.  Then when you read the rationales, it'll increase your knowledge on that subject, making it easier to connect the dots vs. doing questions and memorizing them,  Memorizing is cheating  not only you, but definitely the people you provide care for in the future!  

    Also, if you rent a book, please do what I did and create a generic email address,username, pw and write that information on the the first page of the HESI book.  That way, those who rent the book after you will have the same opportunities of learning as you did :-)
    Have a great day!  I hope that my review was helpful!

    Bought this book and studied it for weeks including the CD that was included for my Med/Surg HESI, It was no help at all. In fact after an entire semester of passing tests easily then studying out of this book for the HESI I ended up doing worse than ever on the test. After using this book I got a 639 on the Med/Surg HESI... I had to repeat the semester and got behind in my program. The second Time through I studied out of Lippincott's Q&A Review for NCLEX_RN and my score on the HESI was 1027 the second time... My suggestion is to not purchase this book.. it was a total waste of money, not only for this book but for having to pay again for the test the second time and the cost of repeating the class.
