A useful review tool in preparing for the NCLEX-RN examination, this full-color guide is based on the latest NCLEX-RN test plan — including alternate item formats. In an outline format, it comprehensively reviews all areas of nursing, including maternity, pediatric, medical-surgical, psychiatric, and gerontologic. More than 4,000 practice questions are included in the book/CD-ROM package, along with comprehensive rationales and test-taking strategies.

• Text and accompanying CD-ROM provide a total of 4,000 practice questions. The CD-ROM includes all 1,800 questions from the book, plus over 2,200 more.
• Every question includes a correct answer, rationales for all responses, test-taking strategy, level of cognitive ability, integrated process, category of client needs, and reference to a major nursing text.
• Alternate item format questions, including fill-in-the-blank, multiple-response, and illustration questions, provide exposure to these new formats on the NCLEX-RN exam.
• A comprehensive exam consists of 265 questions with content areas in the same percentages as the current NCLEX-RN test plan.
• Pharmacology is emphasized with 13 pharmacology chapters, a medication and intravenous calculation chapter, and a pediatric medication calculation chapter.
• Pyramid to Success sections provide an overview of each chapter plus a focused guide for review.
• Pyramid Terms offer a quick review of key content areas.
• Pyramid Points, located throughout the content outlines, identify content that typically appears on the NCLEX-RN exam.
• A chapter written by a student who recently passed the NCLEX-RN exam offers perspective on overcoming anxiety.
• A drop-down calculator is included on CD-ROM, to assist in answering medication questions.
• CD-ROM allows practice in quiz, study, or exam modes, with questions selected from content area, integrated process, or category of client needs.

• Now in full color!
• Addresses issues and areas of difficulty for the foreign-educated nurse in a new, separate chapter.
• Emphasizes leadership, delegating, and prioritizing client care, reflecting the new focus on the Board exam.
• Adds leadership and management selection categories to the CD-ROM — important areas on 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.

    If you want to pass the NCLEX this is the review to buy

    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.

    Excellent book

    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.

    A Must Have!

    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!

    Great book to use during nursing school!

    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.
