Overview

Using clever cartoon characters, innovative icons, real-life examples, and other Incredibly Easy! features, this book gives nursing students practical strategies for studying effectively and performing well on tests, in clinicals, and on the NCLEX. Chapters explain how to read nursing textbooks efficiently, think critically about didactic information, answer test questions of every type, prepare for clinicals, and plan patient care. The NCLEX chapter guides students step by step through preparation and offers tips to follow when taking the actual test. The final chapter focuses on resumé writing, interviewing, and preparing for your first job as a nurse.

End-of-chapter activity pages help students review the material. A back-of-book CD-ROM contains 500 NCLEX-style questions and answers.
