Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Viki Hedderick, DEd, MSN, BSN (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania)
Description: This book provides detailed facts that nursing graduates need to master for NCLEX success.
Purpose: The purpose is to present important facts that are imperative for students preparing for the NCLEX all in one book. This is a unique approach to studying that helps graduates identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement. This book delivers the goods and is indeed a great source for streamlined review. Keep in mind readers may need additional resources to provide more in-depth knowledge of for areas they identify as weaknesses.
Audience: Nursing students preparing for the NCLEX are the intended audience, but the book also may be used as a supplemental resource for students studying for exams on specific topics/courses. The contributors include nursing faculty and practicing nurses from throughout the U.S., who provide content expertise.
Features: This resource provides bulleted lists of facts in key areas of nursing such as adult, pediatric, maternal-child nursing. Within each area the facts address information associated with anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, medical terminology/vocabulary, assessment findings, interventions, etc. The checkboxes next to each fact are helpful to readers who want to note items that are clear or items in need of additional review. The volume of facts in each category is extensive and comprehensive. Creating subcategories, such as anatomy and physiology, assessment, intervention, etc., may help readers identify more focused areas needing additional study.
Assessment: This is a great resource for students preparing for the NCLEX. Its streamlined focus on facts helps them to differentiate concepts they are knowledgeable about from those that require additional study. The compact layout of this small book makes it easy for readers to carry and use anywhere. Other NCLEX books tend to be large and include detailed explanations of concepts, which can be redundant since the student likely has the same detail in a textbook at home. With the more traditional NCLEX preparation books, students can get bored quickly as they sift through volumes of material. This book provides a quick review and can be used as an assessment tool to identify readiness based on comfort with the facts.
