Course review now. NCLEX®-prep later.

Assure your mastery of medical surgical nursing knowledge while honing your critical thinking and test-taking skills. The 2nd Edition of this popular resource features 2,000 questions that reflect the latest advances in medical-surgical nursing and the new, 2010 NCLEX-RN® test plan. The seemingly huge volume of information you must master has been organized into manageable sections divided by body systems and specific diseases.

Each chapter is a self-contained unit. For each practice question, you’ll find the answer, rationales for correct and incorrect responses, and a test-taking tip. The comprehensive exam at the end of each chapter assesses your strengths and weaknesses, identifying areas for further study.

The bonus CD-ROM, featuring 265 questions, offers an interactive approach to course review and exam preparation.

“The success books have helped me so much in many of my nursing courses, specifically in my med-surg nursing class. I found that the success books helped me to know where to focus my studying and also gave me a lot of great review questions that really prepared me for my exams! By using the med-surg success book, my grades shot up from an 89 to a 96. Also through the med-surg success book, my grades were consistently in the mid to high 90's range. I encourage all my friends to use the success books and they can agree that it has really helped them as well.” - Esther Hung, Student Nurse at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY

    Great for test prep! NCLEX style questions which are conveniently grouped together into sections by systems (Cardio, HIC, Endo) with
     specific diseases/disorders pertaining to each system grouped in each section (HTN, Dysrhythmias, CAD, MI...)
    Answers include rationals and test taking tips, all very helpful.
