    Great for Test Review

    This study guide was a great supplement for my Nursing of the Adult tests. It is a good way to review and test your knowledge after studying. It follows along well with the actual Medical-Surgical Nursing textbook. I think it was only like $26, definitely worth the money, especially if your professor pulls questions directly from it :)
