    The most helpful resource for nursing students

    I have been recommending this book in it's earlier editions for several years to nursing student whom I advise and tutor. It is the most helpful resource for beginning students. The chapter on breaking down the types of test questions and learning how to analyse them is great. Students come back and thank me all the time for recommending this book.

    Test Success

    As a nursing student, finding time to read something other than one of the many nursing medical books may be difficult. This book is well worth it. Test Success was recommended to me by an instructor.I recommended it to other nursing students. Valuable info. Good Luck on your NCLEX!!!
