Overview

Ace the NCLEX-PN-with the help of nursing review pioneer Marlene Hurst!





Use Marlene's unique “no cram, pass with what you already know” system and slash your study time in half





Based on Marlene Hurst's phenomenally popular nursing seminars that train over 30,000 students annually, this innovative review is loaded with the author's time-tested strategies-all designed to help you pass the NCLEX certification and course exams the first time around!





NCLEX-PN Review breaks the mold of other review books by explaining how to apply critical thinking and test-taking skills, rather than how to re-learn course content. Marlene shows you how to effectively work with the “think-on-your-feet” philosophy of the NCLEX-PN, not against it.

• Full of concise, easy-to-remember strategies that cut study time in half!

• An eye-catching four-color format

• “Marlene Moments”-Marlene's humorous anecdotes of common student mistakes that offer a light-hearted look at how new nurses learn to succeed

• “What the NCLEX Lady Thinks”-valuable tips that reveal the motivation behind certain types of NCLEX questions and how to adjust your strategy accordingly

• Chapter-ending NCLEX practice questions that solidify important information and show you how it will be tested on the NCLEX examination

• Companion CD-ROM with 300 additional NCLEX-style questions, plus downloadable MP3 audio tips form Marlene Hurst's award-winning NCLEX reviews

    PASSED THE STATE BOARDS

    THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT. I WISH I HAD PURCHASED IT WHEN I BEGAN NURSING SCHOOL. THIS BOOK WOULD HAVE BEEN AN EXCELLENT STUDY GUIDE ALONG WITH MY TEXTBOOKS. I READ IT COVER TO COVER JUST DAYS BEFORE THE NCLEX AND I FELT TOTALLY PREPARED FOR THE EXAM. I LOANED THIS BOOK TO A CLASSMATE WHO THOUGHT SHE WOULDN'T PASS THE NCLEX, SHE READ IT AND PASSED THE FIRST TRY. WHEN PREPARING FOR THE EXAM, I WOULD SUGGEST READING IT THROUGH AND HIGHLIGHT THE INFORMATION YOU FEEL NEEDS ADDITIONAL STUDY TIME. AFTER YOU HAVE FINISHED THE BOOK, GO BACK AND STUDY THE HIGHLIGHTED INFORMATION.
