Pocket-sized and easy to use, this study guide to the NCLEX-RN® examination offers valuable test-taking strategies and tools. It’s the only portable guide with a Question Dissector that breaks down sample questions to help you find the correct answer, by highlighting key terms and offering helpful hints along with answers and rationales. NCLEX exam-style questions include all types of alternate item formats — such as multiple choice, Select All That Apply, Hot Spots, and Fill in the Blank questions. A mini CD-ROM gives students the opportunity to answer even more practice questions on the computer!

• A unique Question Dissector helps you find the right answer by deconstructing questions, and includes both answers and rationales.
• The pocket size, spiral binding, and durable, water-resistant pages make this guide convenient and easy to carry.
• A flashcard format helps you study and review, with questions on the front side of the page and answers with rationales on the back side.
• Ten sections with tabs make it easy to find specific information.
• A companion mini CD lets you practice with more than 1,200 NCLEX-RN review questions, each question including a correct answer, a rationale for each response, the client needs category, content area, and level of cognitive ability.

    Mosby's PDQ for NCLEX-RN

    This book teaches you how to take the NCLEX without having to memorize or re-learn nursing school content. It teaches you how to dissect test questions to come to the right answer. This book was so much more helpful than those larger NCLEX review books.
