Customer Reviews:

  • CD doesn't work
    The book is great and in perfect condition but the CD for some reason is not working properly. I've tried to take this 100 question exam 4 times and it has frozen up on me before I've reached question 30 every time. And I've tried it on different computers to make sure it wasn't the computer acting up....more info
  • Best NCLEX book ever!
    This book is a must-have for all nursing students. I wish I had known about it when I first began nursing school. It is a great tool to use for studying along the way, and for preparing for NCLEX (currently using it for that now). I found out about it during my last year of nursing school (I had the 3rd edition first), and I've used it along with my notes and textbooks since then. It breaks things down into simple and concise sentences. It definitely makes it easier to remember. It has many charts, tables, and pictures (great if you're a visual learner). It also has many practice questions within the book, including alternate format. It also comes with a cd loaded with questions! I could not live without this book. I think almost every person in my graduating class has this book!...more info
  • best book!
    This is the best review book I have found so far. Great overview of the systems and thousands of review questions. I haven't taken the NCLEX yet, but I use this to study for my unit tests - last test, cardiac and respiratory, there were 500 questions to do! It's a great way to study, highly recommend...more info
  • By far the best money I've spent
    This is by far the best NCLEX review I've purchased (I also own the Lippencott, and Mosby books). This book has the most questions, the best rationales and the CD was extremely useful. I haven't taken the NCLEX yet, but since my university uses only NCLEX style questions on exams...this review book has been the one that helped the most.
    I love the "review" sections that it offers in the beginning of every section. I highly recommend this book!...more info
  • Great for RN student
    Easy to understand, Used for the past year in RN school and many of the questions were similiar to test questions I had in class! Definitely helped my grades!!!!...more info
  • Great book! Bad price at Amazon!!
    This review is about the uncompetitive pricing @ Amazon. After looking all over the Internet and also going through my old yahoo spam mail, it dawned on me that Border offers deep discount all the time. So I did a search on Border coupon and got a code for 30% off. I just bought the book brand new for $40.12, which includes the $3.06 CA sales tax with free shipping. Buyers be smart!!!...more info
  • Sabrina
    This book is easy to read and the CD is so helpful. This book is reccomended by all of the instructors in our NCLEX review courses. I feel better prepared for the NCLEX....more info

  • NCLEX Review
    The review is excellent! There are a lot of graphics and test questions that help you really understand the material. The rationales for the review questions are also a plus. The outlines are very helpful, concise, and comprehensive. I recommend this book for every nursing student!...more info
  • good
    This book arrived on time and as described will recommend it to all nursing students....more info
  • nice practice
    I was very excited about getting this book to use as a review because it was so highly recommended and had the alternative format questions. However, just getting thru the first few chapters I have found some mistakes on the alternative format answers and rationals. I was concerned about it because it made me think if these had mistakes, how can I trust the answers and rationals of the other questions. I know nobody is perfect, but I would think these issues would have been ironed out before they released the book. Otherwise, the book is nicely laid out.

  • Fantastic Book!!
    I just bought this book to study for the NCLEX-RN and am very happy I did. There was about 4 questions out of the 80 I received on the actual test that were almost identical to questions from this book. The other girl I know who bought this book only got 75 questions on the NCLEX and said only great things about the book. If you want to decrease your chances of not passing the boards, BUY THIS BOOK!! Not only will you pass, but most likely you will get the minimum (if not close to) the least amount of questions possible....more info
  • Great resource for nursing school students
    I purchased this book as a resource for my son who is completing his 2nd semester of nursing school. It has been extremely helpful for his exams because it's divided into specific areas and offers suggestions on how to discern the "most correct" answer from "multiple-multiple choice" test questions. This book was recommended by one of his nursing school instructors. ...more info
  • Doubt Solver on NCLEX-RN Examination
    It is short notes on a given subjects are simple wonderful & easy to understand and remind later when doing the exam style question.It covers all the topic for NCLEX-RN examination...more info
  • best nclex book
    This is by far the best prep book ive used. if you are in your 2nd to the last term or your last term of nursing school, use this book to prep for your exams and watch your scores go up. ...more info
  • Helped me pass the NCLEX
    I am not a good test taker and this book truly help me prepare for the NCLEX. Kaplan just made me so confused and determined that I was going to fail. I waited six months after graduation to take my boards and studied everyday with the CD that was included. It truly helped someone who never did well with multiples. ...more info
  • Great Book!
    This is a great book, I am in my last year of nursing and I wished I would have bought this book when I started! I believe it will be a great tool in helping me studying for the boards!...more info
  • This is the book!!
    This is the only book you need in order to pass the NCLEX. While taking my courses, I made sure to do the corresponding chapters in this book. Even when I had not read all of the textbook chapters assigned, I still did well on my exams for each course. More importantly, I passed the NCLEX on my first try on 1/22/09 with 75 questions. I feel that out of the various resources that I used (ATI, Hurst Review, and NCLEX 3500), this book was the most useful....more info
  • Great Tool
    I purchased four other books along with this one, I wish I had only bought
    this one. The others were not nearly as comprehensive and easy to use.
    This is the only book you will need....more info
  • To piggyback what everyone else is saying...
    ...this comprehensive book is amazing! It has provided me with an excellent source for review as well as information/concepts that I did not pick up along the way during nursing school. One must be committed to get through this very detailed book, but the end result is well worth it (as if you didn't already know that).

    The questions at the end of each chapter and in the CD-ROM, in my experience, are similar to that of those found in nursing school exams. They strive to be in an NCLEX style, but are more geared toward testing your understanding of the content found within the chapter. This is helpful for content review purposes, but they are not as solid of examples of NCLEX questions as compared to the Kaplan book (another book I recommend). However, the rationales Saunders provide make up for that issue nicely.

    If you are dedicated and really want to pass the first time, you won't regret this purchase!...more info
  • Test time helper
    I'm currently in nursing school and this book has been very helpful. IT has content review in every chapter followed by sample NCLEX questions at the end of each chapter. It also has a comprehensive test at the end of the book and a cd-rom with 3,000 additional questions. It has been amazing when studying for tests!...more info
  • Awesome book for nursing students
    I've only had this book for a few days, but I already love it! I only wish I would have bought this at the beginning of nursing school instead of the end... I just graduated from nursing school, and I'm now studying to take the NCLEX. I can't begin to describe how helpful this book it. It has tons of questions and the reviews are perfect... just enough information without overwhelming you. I would recommend to others to buy this book when you are beginning nursing school, to review concepts & study for the tests. The companion CD is also great. You can choose between quizzes (short) or tests (long) and take practice NCLEX style tests. The review function is also great and tells you how to eliminate answers to get the correct one, and what book to look in to review the concept if it was something you couldn't remember. Good luck to all you nursing students out there, and get this book! It's definitely worth every penny!...more info
  • Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination
    The book was brand new came in a timely fashion. I would definitely purchase other items from this seller!!!...more info
  • Comprehensive Review
    Although I am only halfway through the text, I have found it covers a multitude of topics and is very easy to use. I especially enjoy the accompanying CD which provides questions similar to the ones I experienced in nursing school. As an added benefit, there are a few assessment questions with an audio component that require knowledge from a student's clinical experience. With over twelve hundred pages, it is rather large and time-consuming, and some topics are not discussed in great depth. However, for an outstanding general review this book is well worth the money....more info
  • A Must Have
    This book breaks down questions by category. It gives you information like patient teaching, nursing actions/interventions, rational ,medication information, as well as lab information. It is also very informative to help brush up on basic patho. Just about any question you could have about what is on the N-Clex was in there. I passed with flying colors. I also used this book to study while I was in nursing school. If there was something I did not quite feel I understood post lecture/ or reading, I referenced this book. I have purchased this book for a few friends of mine that are going to nursing school as gifts. ...more info
  • Getting Ready
    I am a begining nursing student. I purchased this to go along with my studies. I think it will be an excellent tool to use throughout school so I will be ready for the nursing exam....more info
  • Perfect Study Tool!
    SUCH a fabulous book. This book is invaluable for studying throughout nursing school. Content review is superb, and questions + rationales are great. The best around....more info
  • Saunders is great!
    I bought this book along with the Q & A NCLEX-RN also by Saunders. I used this to review specific sections before the HESI and I found this helpful when I need to review specifics. The comprehensive exams at the end of the book provided good rationales. Furthermore, the disc was especially useful in helping me focus on areas where I was weaker by offering a pre-exam and scoring my strengths percentage wise in various areas of ability (Health Promotion and Maintenance, Psychosocial integrity, etc.) over the various areas of content; much like the HESI exam does. I able to create exams (100 questions) or quizzes (10 questions) tailored to my needs based on either abilities or area content or both. I passed the NCLEX-RN, without paying for a $500 review course. The Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination book, boost my confidence going into the exam (the if you can belief that)....more info
  • Saunders Nclex review

  • I Just Passed My NCLEX Using This Book!!
    I passed my NCLEX using this one fantastic book. It is comprehensive in detail and leaves nothing out. The questions at the end of each chapter are as close to those on the board as you can get. The included disk has thousands of questions and various testing and quiz options. After practicing with the "test" mode on the disk I found taking the actual boards easy to handle. If you want to pass the first time then BUY THIS BOOK. Make sure that the disk is included or you will be losing out big time. Good luck to all of you nursing students and recent graduates!!! Think positive thoughts and don't waste time doubting yourself....You Can Do It!...more info
  • Must have for foreign educated nurses!!!
    If you studied and graduated from a non US nursing program you must prepare for the NCLEX thoroughly, I graduated 9 years ago in the UK and thought I had a good general knowledge base, however once I started using this book I realized how much my UK education had not prepared me for the US system and the NCLEX.

    Allow yourself a few months studying hard from this book (it is 'no-frills', almost written in note form, but it is the closest thing to experiencing a proper review course you can get outside the states)

    At first I found the rationales in the included chapter exams very difficult to agree with in terms of prioritization, coming from the real world critical care environment, but the more questions and rationales you do the more prepared you will be. I would also recommend a question and answer book - I used the incredibly easy NCLEX RN question and answer book and the Mosby one.

    As much as I recommend this book I also found it very useful to answer questions from several different publishers as I found they would all be somewhat different but it is a very accessible way of learning and getting questions wrong really helps for the right answer to 'stick'.

    Overall a 5 star recommendation, there are no other publications I am aware of that offer this sort of package. Buy it and work hard!

    I found out this morning that I passed! in 75 questions!

    Good luck, good luck, good luck!...more info
  • A must have book
    This is one of the best books to use for studying. I used Saunders for my LPN and passed my boards with no trouble. I have been using the RN version during school and it has helped tremendously. Luckily my teachers use the same format, so it gives good practice questions....more info
  • Saunders NCLEX Review
    This is probably the gold standard in terms of preparation for the NCLEX. It won't teach you the material per se, but will refresh you with what you need to know....more info

  • Great Study Guide for Nursing Classes
    I purchased this book on the advice of my neice, an ICU nurse. I was having trouble studying for the tests in my nursing classes because there was so much material. I started using this book the moment it arrived and my test scores bounced up dramatically. I've had this book one month, and my test scores went from a C, to completing the course with a B+. What I love most about this book is that it has a review of all the systems and information in a complete concise manner giving just the information related to nursing, so I don't have to wander through all kinds of narrative to get to the facts I need to study. Best study guide I found....more info
  • The ONLY book you need!!!
    If I were only allowed to use one book for all four semesters of Nursing school this would be it!! I am in an associate program wich is very condensed and this is the only book I read for content!!!! I have all the text books but just do not have the to read hundreds of pages of useless material. This book hits all the major points and everything on my exams can be found in it!! ...more info
  • Very Helpful
    I am taking my Adult Health/Med Surge class in nursing school. This book follows along with my textbook and provides summaries that are clear, consise, and to the point. It also have review questions that are very simmilar to what I am seeing on my tests. I strongly recommend this book for anyone in nursing school....more info
  • Must Have
    This book is a must for Nursing Students. Use it along with your coursework to get ahead of the rest. It works and I have the A's to prove it....more info
  • I loved it and I PASSED!
    This was my favorite NCLEX study tool... of about 24. The program on the CD is a great too. If you have time to review, there is a lot of great information in the book. If it's a last minute thing, the CD has great questions and lets you know what areas to focus on....more info

  • Great Review Book
    I have been looking for a NCLEX-RN book that would help get me prepared for BIG TEST. I been using it has we cover the sections in my lecture class. So far, I have used it as a study guide for endocrine and cardiac exams with success. I haven't found any differences for this review book and my lecture book.
    I think that is a really great book because it is almost like a med-surg book without all of the information that you do not need. NOTE: This is a comprehensive book--meaning it is not just a book full of questions. It is an outline of each system. The CD has the NCLEX questions on it (however, the book about 30 questions at the end of each chapter)....more info
    This book is the BEST!!! In my opinion, this NCLEX review book is a "MUST" for preparing for the NCLEX-RN exam. This book is very organized and helpful! I bought this book for preparing for the NCLEX-RN but I wish I'd had it when I started the nursing school. I am very thankful that my friend recommended this book to me. By all means, buy this book if you can. You'll be GLAD you did!!

    I would like to appreciate Ms. Linda Anne Silvestri (Author) for sharing her valuable knowledge with us and thank her for this valuable NCLEX-RN review book. Thank you again!
