In this TestWare® edition with CD-ROM, we’ve made it easy for you
to hone your study skills. The accompanying CD offers you four test-readiness

It’s an excellent way to build knowledge and confidence.

With this flashcard book, you won’t have to deal with an awkward box
and hundreds of loose cards. Here, everything you need to study is bound
neatly inside, with questions on one side of a flashcard, a place to write
your response, and the correct answer and a detailed explanation on the
flip side of the card. It is portable and useful in many ways—for quick
study, rapid review, and easy reference.
We are proud of this one-of-a-kind flashcard book, and we hope you
find it valuable in your quest to launch your career in nursing.
