Lippincott Q&A Review for NCLEX-RN, 12th edition is designed to help pre-licensure nursing students prepare to take the licensing examination. Students and faculty also use the book is as a study guide and practice tests for preparing for faculty-made examinations. Because the questions found in the book are also available in PassPoint, the products used together act as an ongoing assessment tool to monitor progress throughout the nursing curriculum.
The book is designed to support the four major content areas in pre-licensure programs: obstetrics, pediatrics, medical-surgical, and mental health nursing. Within each of the four sections, chapters are organized around common health problems. When studying, students can select examinations that parallel the content in a particular course in a variety of curricula. PassPoint offers the same flexibility for review and study. The textbook also includes six comprehensive examinations to provide students a realistic example of the NCLEX-RN test, in which test items are randomized by subject area and difficulty.
This consistently bestselling NCLEX-RN review book features more than 6,000 high-level questions that prompt active learning and higher-order thinking. The questions support the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) 2016 RN test plan and are written in the style used on the licensing examination. Other features include the use of all the types of alternate-format questions found on the licensing examination, detailed rationale for both correct and incorrect answers, information about the NCLEX-RN, study tips, and a "Content Mastery and Test-Taking Self Analysis" grid by which students can chart their own progress and modify study plans as needed. The accompanying site on thePoint provides an opportunity for students to practice taking computer-generated exams as well as taking “audio” questions that require students to listen to audio files to answer.

There are a lot of typo errors. this book is good but I've been reading this book and found some typo errors which confuses me when I answer the questions. Hope that you properly edit the book because it confuses us when answering it.
I bought this book after taking the Anderson review course as prep for the boards. I thought it was well thought out and designed to mimic the types of questions we have been leaning towards in the nursing program and in the review course. I have been an LPN for over 10 years so some of the content (esp maternity!) was a real lifesaver!!
This book came highly recommended by classmates and I see why. Very informative and loved that the rationales are understandable. Love also that a CD comes with it so that I can practice some questions at work.
This is an amazing review book for the NCLEX! The level of each question challenged my critical thinking ability, especially since the questions are at the application, analysis, synthesis, & evaluation level. The rationales are excellent in providing an in-depth explanation and content review. The chapters are divided into specific topics with a test at the end of each chapter and 6 comprehensive tests that really prepared me for the NCLEX exam.
This review book is really good when it comes to preparing not only for the nclex but for regular exams in nursing school. I've had the med surg success book. Comparing the two of them the med surg success isn't as challenging. So this book is great, the only thing is that I wish there were more questions for the liver.
