The Saunders Pyramid to Success for NCLEX-PN series offers a unique and comprehensive review program for students who are preparing for the NCLEX-PN examination.

Written and organized to address specific elements included in the most recent NCLEX-PN test plan, this popular book/CD-ROM review package is designed to provide students with more than 3,000 NCLEX-PN practice questions in a truly unique format. Chapters in the book are organized according to the client needs categories and the integrated concepts and processes identified in the most recent NCLEX-PN test plan. It features practice questions, answers, and detailed rationales on the same page to provide immediate feedback on students' responses. Rationales for both correct and incorrect responses, along with test-taking strategies, help students learn from their mistakes and develop an effective approach to the exam. Each Q&A chapter also contains examples of the new NCLEX Alternate Item Formats, including fill-in-the-blank, multiple-response, and illustration questions. The CD-ROM contains all 1,500 questions from the book, plus an 1,500 additional practice questions.

• The book and accompanying CD-ROM provide more than 3,000 practice questions, offering a thorough preparation for the NCLEX-PN exam.
• Every question in the book and on the CD-ROM provides a correct answer, rationales for all responses, test-taking strategy, level of cognitive ability, Integrated Concepts and Processes category, category of Client Needs, and reference to a major nursing textbook.
• Content presents introductory chapters on the NCLEX exam (written by a student who recently passed the exam), the CAT exam, and test-taking skills.
• Questions help students develop the reading, critical thinking, and analytical skills they need to succeed on the exam.
• Specific references for every question make further study easier.
• A comprehensive exam is included and offers 85 questions that are representative of the percentages identified in the NCLEX-PN test plan.
• The CD-ROM contains all 1,500 questions from the book, 1,500 additional questions with answers and rationales, and a drop-down calculator for answering questions that require a medication calculation.
• Approximately 15 Illustrations Questions — figures or illustrations with accompanying questions, to be answered with "point and click" of the mouse — are provided on the CD-ROM to reflect another new feature of the NCLEX-PN exam.
• The CD-ROM also allows students to practice using three modes - Quiz, Study, and Exam. Questions are randomly selected from specific content area, category of integrated concepts and processes, or category of client needs. In the Exam mode, students can test across the entire spectrum of content, review their raw score and the time to complete the exam, and print out results and questions with answers.

• The new NCLEX Alternate Item Formats — fill-in-the-blank, multiple-response, and illustration questions — have been added to provide students with practice on mastering prioritizing, decision-making, and critical thinking skills, and to help prepare students for these additional question types included on the NCLEX-PN exam.
• Two new chapters address six concepts and processes fundamental to the practice of nursing - Nursing Process, Caring, Communication and Documentation, Cultural Awareness, Self-Care, and Teaching/Learning — now identified and integrated throughout the four major categories of Client Needs in the most recent NCLEX-PN test plan.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen Diane Pickrell, BSN, MSN (Indiana State University)
Description: This book provides 3,500 practice NCLEX-RN test questions that represent and are based on the 2001 NCLEX-RN test plan. The book includes information about the test and how to prepare, practice questions with answers, and an NCLEX-RN review on CD-ROM.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce candidates to important points about the NCLEX-RN examination, the process of testing, and unique and special tips for test preparation. The book meets the objectives by providing a foundation prior to a computerized review.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for students who have completed a basic nursing program and are now preparing for the registered nurse licensure examination. The book meets this purpose. The author has conducted nursing review courses for RN and PN licensure exams since 1991.
Features: The book covers test-taking strategies for successful completion of the NCLEX-RN. Chapters are organized by client needs categories and include practice test questions related to each category. Integrated concepts include caring, communication and documentation, cultural awareness, nursing process, self-care and teaching/learning. Review questions are organized in a two-column format. The first column lists questions and answers/distractors. The second column lists the answer with rationale and test-taking strategy for each item. All items have level of cognitive ability, client needs, integrated concept/process, content area, and references listed. The book also contains critical thinking questions. One unique feature of the book is a passage written by a candidate who recently passed the licensure examination.
Assessment: Although the book does not contain a content review as in other NCLEX-RN review books, it is an updated edition of a necessary resource for candidates preparing for licensure examination. Placing answers with rationale on the same page is helpful. In similar review books, questions are presented sequentially with answers in another location.

    I found this book 2weeks before my exam and it helped me tremendously. I just wish I found it earlier. I bought Saunders PN Review, Lipponcottts and Delmar test preps. It was all helpful. Good luck !!
