This book teaches you how to take the NCLEX without having to memorize or re-learn nursing school content. It teaches you how to dissect test questions to come to the right answer. This book was so much more helpful than those larger NCLEX review books.

This little pocket guide makes it so easy to understand the NCLEX and what material to study for boards. The test-taking skills can be applied to any test-taking situation.
