Overview

Ace the NCLEX-RN—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

NCLEX-RN 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-RN, not against it.

  • Full of concise, easy-to-remember strategies that cut study time in half!
  • An eye-catching four-color format

  • “What the NCLEX Lady Thinks”—valuable tips that reveal the rationale 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
