Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Allen Carey, PhD (University of Oklahoma College of Nursing)
Description: This book teaches students to successfully answer multiple-choice questions, as well as questions posed in a variety of other formats through the use of effective techniques. A previous edition of the book was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to help students identify what is keeping them from mastering test-taking skills and to suggest techniques for overcoming barriers to mastery. These worthy objectives are met by the authors.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is designed for beginning nursing students who are preparing to take tests at the end of a unit of instruction or at the completion of fundamentals of nursing course. Further, the book can also be used by students in licensed practical nurse programs to prepare for class examinations, NCLEX-PN, or advanced-standing examinations for entry into RN programs. Students preparing for the NCLEX-RN may review the book to maximize their success on the national examination. Nursing faculty members may find this book helpful when designing a test-taking workshop for student nurses. The level of the intended student audience would need to be carefully assessed for congruence of the testing material with the needs of the student. However, the test-taking strategies and techniques can be universally applied to most audiences. The authors are credible authorities.
Features: New features include time management strategies that illustrate ways for students to get the most out of their study time. NCLEX alternate-format questions are presented and include some that address recent developments and trends in nursing. Key features include separate chapters on building critical thinking skills and computer applications. More than 740 multiple-choice questions with rationales are provided. The application of knowledge is emphasized rather than simply fact recall. Study and test-taking strategies are integrated with basic nursing theory and skills. Pharmacology, community-based nursing, and meeting the patient's microbiological safety needs are three areas of content that reflect the changing emphasis in credentialing and licensing exams.
Assessment: This is a good quality book. Major strengths of the book are the inclusion of time management strategies and extensive exposure to other test-taking techniques which will be very helpful to students.
