What instructors and students are saying about the Success Series:

”We have used your products for students to help increase critical thinking skills, prepare for NCLEX and course exams, and for review of nursing content. We recommend students purchase the Success Series and review the content and questions for remediation and to enhance nursing knowledge. The terminology at the beginning of each chapter provide key terms for the students to review before answering questions. The books are all encompassing in regards to what students need to review across the curriculum. We love them!!”

– Louise Outlaw, Instructor at Brown Mackie College, St.Louis

“The success books have helped me so much in many of my nursing courses, specifically in my med-surg nursing class. I found that the success books helped me to know where to focus my studying and also gave me a lot of great review questions that really prepared me for my exams! By using the med-surg success book, my grades shot up from an 89 to a 96. Also through the med-surg success book, my grades were consistently in the mid to high 90's range. I encourage all my friends to use the success books and they can agree that it has really helped them as well.” - Esther Hung, Student Nurse at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY

Great for test prep! NCLEX style questions which are conveniently grouped together into sections by systems (Cardio, HIC, Endo) with  specific diseases/disorders pertaining to each system grouped in each section (HTN, Dysrhythmias, CAD, MI...) Answers include rationals and test taking tips, all very helpful.
