Keep in mind when renting you are not "guaranteed" everything included with the book. I rented this book to prepare for my NCLEX and didn't receive the 4,000 practice question CD, which is part of the reason this book is more expensive to buy new. When I called the customer service he said, "I cannot help you with this issue" so don't bother.

I recently purchased this book to prepare for NCLEX RN. I went through the entire book, answered every single question in the book along with the rationales and also did probably 1,000 of the 4,000 questions on the CD. I spent three weeks studying this book and I feel that the questions were very easy and they conditioned you to think and answer a certain way. Unfortunately, I failed the NCLEX so this book was a waste for me. Will purchase Kaplan review book for my retest. Good luck :)
