    Great Review book

    This book is wonderful, straight to the point information in list format. I have a paperback copy of this book, then the kindle ebook because I liked it soo much, specially the CD ROM that came with it. The CD ROM has about 2500 NCLEX style questions with 3 types of options " Study" "Quiz" and "Exam Mode" You can take the test/quizzes by systems or comprehensive, its your choice!!!. Which makes this book very helpful not just for nclex but while your in the nursing program as well. This book is highly recommended.
