More About This Textbook

Overview

Clearly separating the overwhelming array of medical-surgical nursing content into manageable sections as they are taught and tested, Med-Surg Success provides core medical-surgical concepts with related NCLEX-style questions. Like the NCLEX itself, the questions are presented at the application and analysis level, and address the nursing process, management, prioritizing, and medications: critical thinking and how it relates to test taking is emphasized throughout. Organized by body system and specific diseases, Med-Surg Success builds on the successful skills and strategies that have already helped thousands of students in Fundamentals Success and Test Success . The disorders chapters provide practice questions focused on the disease process and a comprehensive exam that includes the processes covered in the practice questions along with other topics involving the system addressed. Other chapters similarly cover emergency, perioperative, and cultural nursing; alternative health care and end-of-life issues; and the last chapter before the comprehensive final exam includes questions and test-taking hints specific to pharmacology and the administration of medications.

    Great Study Book!

    I ordered this book because I was having an awful time in my med-surg class. I got this book and it helped out a TON! My grades went from 70's and 80's to 90 in just one test! I was so happy, I even made a 96! It was great. I plan on buying the other success books also, in hopes they will help me out in the rest of my classes, like Peds! At the price of a little more than 20 bucks I think its most certainly worth it! I wish I had bought it sooner, then I wouldn't have such a big hole to dig out of! I suggest, if you are going into a med-surge class, get this book.

    This book will lay out the biggest topics of med-surg and give you practice questions for each and then, the best part, the rationale! I love this part of the book the best. Not only do you get the right anwser but you also get WHY this anwser is better than the rest! And it also gives an over view of how to take tests. Its actually quite helpful! I thought " I know how to take a test" ... well, now I know how to take a test better!

    Good Luck my fellow nursing students!!

    Read it as a refresher to sharpen your practice knowledge.

    Although written in a test question format, I found the information amazingly useful by studying all the wrong answers as well as the right ones because the "wrong" answer-rationales also shed more light on the subjects, touching on needed information on other questions. I found these kind of review books, and this one in particular to be a gold mine of practice knowledge.

    Great study tool for getting through med surg

    This book was extremely helpful. It gives you test questions with rationales, which are really helpful. It correlates along with the textbook and the units studied. It helps take what you have studied in the text and tests you on it and makes test taking a lot easier, I have even found that a few of the questions in the book can also be on the school tests.

    Amazing

    I am taking summer intensive classes in med surg. 15 weeks of material in 6 weeks each for Med Surg 1 and 2. I was struggling memorizing the concepts and key points but using this book I was able to raise my grade 20 points and received the highest grade the professor had ever seen on the NLN final! The best part of this book are the rationales. It gives rationales for every answer, correct or incorrect, which adds to learning the subject matter as well as relating the incorrect answers to other questions that may be posed. The rationales are detailed and easy to remember! It is organized by body system and then by disease/issue or procedure. Exams for each area covering the key points you need to know for the disease/issue followed by a comprehensive exam of the chapter that brings it all together. This is a book of exams and rationales, not a text book and there is no review of systems included with the book which makes the format simple and to the point. I also like that unlike many other review books, the answers are not right below the question, they are at the end of the exam. This was an investment well worth the price!

    A Must for Nursing Students!

    This is an incredible tool to help nursing students study. It provides critical thinking questions with rationales for both right and wrong answers. I highly recommend this, along with the rest of the "Sucess" series for your nursing student career. It will help to improve your scores!

    Very Useful

    I am a nursing student and although this book was not required, it has been extremely useful for extra help understanding content. My professors actually use some of these questions on our tests as well, so it has been great having this book. I recommended it to the majority of my class that didn't have it and they all have it now as well. It was recommended to me by a friend in the graduating class above me as a great source of help.

    Great Study Aid!

    As a nursing student, this is an awesome study tool. I use it before every exam - I do the questions for the body system(s) on the exam.

    I also used it to study for the HESI test. It is very helpful in learning "how to take the test".

    Med/Surg Success

    I am entering my third semester in nursing school and found this book extremely helpful in preparing me for the med/surg lecture exams. The book is organized into body systems and each question has a complete rationale explanation for each answer. I highly recommend this book as a study aid for the exams, it really helps the student develop critical thinking from a nursing standpoint. GREAT BOOK!
