I recommend this book for everyone who will take NCLEX exam. This book will help you a lot. I passed my NCLEX exam first take just this month. Goodluck to those who will take the exam.
I did my nclex exam last year and passed with flying colors, if it had not been for this book, i would probably have some difficulty passing the exam. I reviewed this book from top to bottom. The exam was a breeze for me. I even used this book as a reference book during my nursing career.
A couple of years ago I was struggling to pass my NCLEX-RN. I tried all kinds of reviews...making research found that everyone recommended this book. I have to say, 'It is awesome'. You will not be disappointed.
I love this book it's the best one that I read while I was reviewing for the NCLEX and I have read a lot of books. It had a lot of questions and was very easy for me to read through and it wasn't boring. I liked how the book was sectioned off too.
I use this book for all my nursing exams for school. It really helped with my test taking skills and knowledge the instructors leave out that you need to know for the test. I have 3 other NCLEX books at home and this is the best because you can go and take a customized test and get feedback on it.
This is a must have for anyone who is studying for NCLEX. It's comprehensive, in a very easy to read format, and includes questions. I used this book to study for NCLEX and for the ACE II exams. I have 4-5 review books and this one is by far my favorite. Highly reccommended!
This book was very helpful for me while taking senior med surg. I used it a lot and referred to it a lot. I graduated from a BSN program, and found this book to be VERY RESOURCEFUL! It¿s an EXCELLENT review and guide!!!!
THIS BOOK PROVES USEFUL FOR GENERAL KNOWLEDGE FOR NURSING. I USE IT TO STUDY FOR MY NURSING EXAMS. I'M NOT SO SURE OF ITS USEFULNESS FOR TAKING THE NCLEX, ESP. SINCE I HAVEN'T TAKEN IT YET. THE QUESTIONS IN THIS BOOK ARE EASIER THAN THOSE ON MY NURSING EXAMS, SO I BELIEVE IT WILL NOT BE AS USEFUL AS OTHER BOOKS. THE QUESTIONS ON THE CD ARE WORDED POORLY. I ADVISE CHECKING OUT NCLEX-RN REVIEW BY ALICE M. STEIN. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE BEST.
I use this book to help review what info. I know before a test. It has improved my test scores by 10-20 pts. Not sure how it works with NCLEX, but it is VERY beneficial for school.
