I've read them all because I want to pass the first time. Cracking is the best because it involves the reader in the exercises. Very good publication.

The first time i saw the book i know that its the best book for me especially that ive been out of school for 10 yrs, its very informative and its enhances my nursing ability, i feel like im in school again. I told my co worker about it and she too been out of school for a year and the book really helped her to prepared for the exam. Gladly to say i passed my board easily and she did too.

I purchased the 7th edition and was very upset when I received it. The book was of very poor quality, including cheap pages that tear easily. In addition, the advertisement stated that there were eight computer adaptive tests included when in fact they are simple linear tests. If you want a high quality book, please do not purchase this one because you will be disappointed.

The book did not give good information, plus, the CD did not work. Many Many errors...VERY poor quality.

This book was the best investment I ever made. This book gets the results you want, Registered Nurse! Yes, I did notice some spelling errors and other minor mistakes. This book was of great help to me and could be to you.

I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to ace the test - I did very well after following the princeton review's amazing strategies. The errors must have been fixed, not sure what these other reviews are talking about.

I was throughly disappointed with the poor quality of this book. Spelling errors, question/answer mismatches, confusing information. I would not recommend this to anyone.

I was suprised by the poor quality of paper and the numberous spelling errors in this book. Would not recommend it without seeing a revised copy.
