    Very Helpful

    I took a Hesi test during Nursing school, and did not do too well. A teacher advised me to get this book. It was short enough to read the whole review book, and had excellent strategies and practice questions. I just took the Nclex and passed!

    very helpful

    I am currently studying for NCLEX and have many books to study by different companies. By far, this book has been the most helpful and eye-opening as far as reasonings and easy to understand. This book have given me the confidence needed to pass NCLEX.

    A MUST HAVE!!

    I passed my NCLEX-RN exam 2 weeks ago with the help of this book. I was a new grad and I couldn't afford the expensive review courses (ranging from $350-$400) so i decided to buy this book for the sake of learning some strategies for the exam. I read this book twice from cover to cover and practiced with the CD and i felt so confident taking my exam. I passed it on my very first try and i'm soooo proud of it!!
